Speaking of Guam, the economy on the Island is going to be getting a huge boost thanks to increasing Government spending.
The US and Japan recently agreed to move 6,000-8,000 Marines from Okinawa to Guam, there is going to be Billions
in new construction spending on the island to support the 8,000 Marines and the additional 8,000-10,000 dependents and contractors associated with the Marines.
Then there's Anderson Air Force Base which is a nonstop construction site, Anderson is being modernized to support forward deployed Expeditionary Wings of B-2, F-22, B-1 and B-52s as well as support aircraft (KC-135s, KC
The Navy is not being left out either, they now have 4 Attack Submarines permanently based at Apra Harbor, it's being studied about bringing more subs and even some surface ships to be permanently stationed at Apra Harbor. The Navy also wants to move a Air Craft carrier to either Pearl Harbor Hawaii or Guam.
All together there's tens of Billions of new construction going on in Guam, with tens of thousands of new permanently statinoned Airman, Sailors and Marines plus their families and contractors that support their mission.
This will mean more business for CO
/CS, especially on the Guam-Honolulu sector. I would not be surprised if that eventually goes double daily and it's possible CO
would open a nonstop flight to the West Coast within the next 10 years.
