President Duterte leads the unveiling of the T1 marker of MCIA

 President Rodrigo Roa Duterte led the unveiling of a commemorative marker at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) Terminal 1, which signified the completion of its full renovations. The ceremony was held at the new Airport Village in the Terminal 1 Arrivals area  on Sinulog day, January 19, 2020.


The Php 1.8 billion renovation started immediately after the opening of the new MCIA international terminal (Terminal 2) in July 2018 and was completed in August 2019. Prior to this, GMCAC had implemented several initial improvements to Terminal 1 to address urgent issues such as congestion and operational efficiency. Terminal 1 was originally built for just 4.5 million passengers per annum (mppa); however, it was already handling 6.9 mppa in 2014. GMCAC took over landside operations of MCIA on November 1, 2014.  


 “With the complete renovation of Terminal 1, we can now focus on opening more domestic flights via Cebu,” said Louie Ferrer, GMCAC President. “MCIA’s domestic flight frequencies have increased by 82%, and this is just in our first five years. Our medium-term objective is to establish Cebu as the hub for flights to the Philippines, particularly to Visayas and Mindanao, by maximizing our strategic central location and infrastructure,” he said.    


The VVIPs present in the ceremony were Senator Bong Go, Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles, Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Lloyd Dino, Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines Deputy Director-General Donaldo Mendoza, Clark International Airport President Jaime Melo, Department of Tourism 7 Director Shalimar Tamano, Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard Chan, Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA) General Manager and CEO Steve Dicdican, Megawide Chairman Edgar Saavedra, GMR MEGAWIDE Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC) President Louie Ferrer, and GMCAC Chief Executive Advisor Andrew Acquaah-Harrison. 


Ferrer attributed MCIA’s growth these past few years to the efforts of the airport’s stakeholders. “Since November 2014, we have served more than 50 million passengers and doubled the annual passenger traffic. MCIA has seen significant improvements within this period, and it is thanks to the hard work and collaboration of the MCIA and Cebuano communities that we now have an airport that we are proud to call our own,” he said.   


MCIAA General Manager Steve Dicdican also highlighted the strong partnership between the public and the private sector. “The success and milestones that MCIA have achieved in the past years are a testimony of a successful collaboration between the government and the private sector in delivering a world-class service and a passenger-centric airport,” said Dicdican. “Another milestone that we are looking forward to is the completion of MCIA’s parallel taxiway/second runway which will sustainably address the growing needs of the airport,” he added.
