12 March 2018, Mactan Cebu International Airport – The countdown to the opening of the much awaited expansion of Cebu’s airport has begun. Mactan Cebu International Airport Terminal 2 is expected to open and welcome guests from and to Cebu in 111 days.
Situated in the Historic Resort City of Lapu-lapu, MCIA Terminal 2 captures the essence of what the city and Cebu is about -charming, fascinating and hearty. Aesthetically stunning with beautiful wooden arcs, floor tiles made from cement and mother of pearls that give out a gentle gleam and rattan trimmings, set out a feeling that your holiday has started the moment you arrive at this resort-feel airport, along with the warm Cebuano welcome from the MCIA team of cadre.
When completed, MCIA Terminal 2 will service incoming and outgoing international flights, and Terminal 1 will be for domestic departures and arrivals.The airport expansion will not only open more opportunities for both international and domestic guests to experience Cebu, but also Cebuanos to travel and see the rest of the Philippines and the world. The nearly completed airport expansion has continuously been receiving great feedback, even getting the attention of a bunch of airline companies with the interest of servicing flights directly to and from Cebu.
With the launch of the expansion, new uniform for the staff will also roll out when the terminal opens. Wondering who designed these stunning outfits? It’s none other than world renowned master couturier (and proud Cebuano) Cary Santiago.
Also, after the opening of terminal 2, terminal 1 will undergo portion-by-portion renovation which is scheduled to be completed on June 2019.
Truly an exciting time for Cebu, as the last major infrastructure project was in 1998 which was the Marcelo Fernan Bridge. Are you thrilled for the opening of the new Mactan Cebu International Airport Terminal 2? Share with us your thoughts!
