Mactan International Airport: PH’s first resort gateway to open on July 1
The world’s first ever resort airport will be opening its doors to the public soon with the aim of attracting more tourists to rhe province of Cebu.
President Duterte on Thursday inaugurated terminal 2 of the Mactan Cebu International Airport, which is seen to accomodate as much as 13 million passengers annually.
With a floor area of 65,000 square meters or more than two times the 27,000 minimum floor area in the concession agreement, the new terminal will cater to international flights.
Terminal 1, on the other hand, will handle domestic flights.
“For the past years, MCIA’s demand has exceeded the physical capacity of it terminal. With the addition of Terminal 2, not only will be able to sustainably cope with the steadily increasing number of passengers, we will also be able to open Cebu to more international flights,” said Louie Ferrer, president of GMR Megawide Cebu Airport Corp.
“We are committed to delivering a world-class travel experience to the public with our signature Filipino warmth,” he added.
As the premiere gateway to the Visayas and Southern Philippines, it is currently handling an estimated of 5.9 million passengers per year, which is beyond its capacity of 4.5 million passengers per year.
