I was looking at a list of all the hub’s United Airlines has, and found out that they have a hub in Guam. I don’t understand why they would open up a hub there. I somewhat understand why they have one at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport. After all, United has gained three more hubs in KIAH, KEWR, and KCLE when merging with Continental Airlines because of the amount of aircrafts they currently have following the merger. Before, it was just KSFO, KORD, KDEN, KIAD, and RJAA [Tokyo-Narita Intl Airport].
Was this a hub for Continental Airlines prior to merging with United Airlines? Or did they open it up recently? What was the reason for opening up a hub there? What United aircraft’s operate to and from there? PS: The only american destination from Guam is KORD.
