HAGATNA, Guam (AP) - Guam is looking for airline partners to fly direct from the island to the U.S. West Coast now that it has completed construction of a longer runway.

The Pacific Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1ginFbH ) that officials from the A.B. Won Pat Guam International Airport Authority on Monday celebrated the completion of $70 million of runway improvements paid for by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The project allows for long-haul flights by adding 2,000 feet to one of the airport’s two runways, making the total length 12,000 linear feed. Before work started, a second runway was first expanded from 8,000 to 10,000 linear feet.

The project was completed in phases so as not to interrupt airline operations.
