CPA honors Guam airport executive

The Commonwealth Ports Authority board of directors honored Guam airport executive manager Charles “Chuck” H. Ada II with a resolution last week for his help with the three international airports on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota during three typhoons.

The CPA board unanimously adopted the resolution recognizing Ada’s contributions to CPA and to the CNMI.

According to the CPA resolution, after Typhoon Soudelor in 2015 and Typhoon Mangkhut and Super Typhoon Yutu this year, Ada has been a critical resource to CPA and has consistently offered his assistance through his open communication with CPA executive director Christopher S. Tenorio.

Ada assisted in the recovery of the Francisco C. Ada-Saipan International Airport, the West Tinian International Airport, and the Benjamin T. Manglona-Rota International Airport by offering the services of the Guam airport and providing his expertise in airport-related matters.
