Airlines and destinations

For many years the only service was the three-times-weekly Island Hopper flight between Guam and Honolulu operated by United Airlines, (formerly Continental Micronesia), plus another weekly flight between Guam and Pohnpei. In June 2015, Nauru Airlines resumed a once-weekly service.
