Mactan-Cebu International Airport

Megawide, through GMCAC, is transforming MCIA as the friendliest gateway to the country.

GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC) reinforced the role of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport as an engine for economic growth with the immediate renovation and upgrade of the existing terminal to transform the ageing facility into a modern gateway.

The enhancements made possible the efficient accommodation of over almost 8 million passengers in Terminal 1 despite a design capacity of only 4.5 million passengers per annum. GMCAC also kicked off the intensive construction of Terminal 2 last June 2015. The terminal will be brought into service by 2018, increasing the airport’s handling capacity to 12.5 million passengers per annum.

Travelers responded positively to the transformation of Terminal 1 and the improved customer service. In a survey by the Guide to Sleeping in Airports website, MCIA was ranked 14th Best Airport in Asia in 2016.

GMCAC will continue its efforts to build a reputation for MCIA in the Philippines and the rest of the world. It will be more than a gateway destination.  It will be an experience that will translate to a strong brand in the next 25 years.
