Chuuk (formerly called Truk or Truk Lagoon) is one of four States which comprise the Federated States of Micronesia. Physically located at 7.30 degrees North Latitude and 151.45 degrees Longitude, Chuuk is just north of the equator, about half way between Hawaii and the Philippines, and only 633 miles southeast of Guam.
United Micronesia is the only commercial airline providing regularly scheduled flights to Chuuk with non-stop service directly from Guam to Chuuk or from Honolulu to Chuuk via the island hopper with short, 1 hour stops in Majuro, Kwajalien, Kosrae, and Pohnpei.
While Guam is the most common gateway to Chuuk, there are several ways to get to Guam that are worth exploring. One in via Japan but the more common and cost effective alternative route may be via Manila.
