Jin Air & PIC Partner with GVB to Clean Up Tumon


The airline partnered with the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) and Pacific Islands Club (PIC) to pick up debris and trash along Governor Joseph Flores Memorial Park (Ypao Beach) and Matapang Beach in Tumon on June 29.

Close to 30 volunteers picked up more than 70 bags of trash to support beautification efforts and the re-opening of the Tumon parks for the community. The Korean Guam Travel Association was also invited for the cleanup. PIC sponsored the off-island guests with free lodging and flew a couple of its employees from Korea to join the cleanup effort.

“We are thankful for the support of Jin Air and PIC, along with added help from KGTA, to spruce up Ypao and Matapang as we recover from the impact Typhoon Mawar has had on our industry. I would like to recognize Jin Air Regional Manager Mr. Lee Jongbok for initiating this effort, Net Enterprises Managing Director Mr. John Ko for donating supplies, and PIC Director of Korean Sales Mr. Young Min Kim for donating rooms,” said GVB President & CEO Carl T.C. Gutierrez.

“With so many hands helping each other, we are recovering in record time to welcome visitors back to Destination Guam.”

Jin Air ramped up its flight schedule to Guam from Incheon and Busan on June 29. The airline has committed to flying daily from both ports, providing 11,718 airline seats to the island in the month of July.
