JIC Release No. 36 - Visitor industry prepares for typhoon

The Joint Information Center (JIC) is working with our tourism industry partners to make our visitors feel comfortable, safe, and informed as Typhoon Mangkhut moves closer to the Marianas.
With Guam in Condition of Readiness (COR) 1 and the onset of damaging winds to begin early this afternoon, visitors are strongly urged to stay indoors and shelter-in-place until COR4 is announced. The Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) and Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association (GHRA) strongly recommend to hotels to enforce shelter-in-place policies as part of their safety and security protocols. 

During an emergency, hotels should already be providing regular updates, airline updates and translation services to their guests.
Airport operations to cease as typhoon approaches
Effective 12:15 p.m. all inbound/ outbound airport operations at the A.B. Won Pat Guam International Airport will cease. United 196, which is scheduled to depart at 12:05 p.m. to Narita, will be the last flight out for today.
United urges customers to check the latest status of their flights at united.com or by calling United Reservations at 1-800-UNITED-1 (1-800-864-8331).
Additionally, all airline customers are encouraged to contact their respective airlines for any further changes. For the most updated flight schedules, visit www.guamairport.com.
