What was the reason behind the shift to Terminal 2?
All the international flights have been moved to the new terminal, in keeping with the growth plans of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA). As the largest airline partner of the MCIA, Cebu Pacific provides great support to the growth of Cebu as an international hub, especially because of its unparalleled domestic network to and from the
best tourist destinations within the country.

How many passengers does it serve currently?
The new terminal is looking to serve 4.5 million passengers per year, increasing the airport’s capacity to serve at least 12.5 million passengers per year. In 2017, Mactan-Cebu International Airport served 10 million passengers.

What are the services offered at the terminal?
Aside from a showcase of Filipino creativity and hospitality through its architectural designs, passengers can catch a glimpse of the Cebuano culture through the terminal’s design. T2 has a variety of food, beverage and retail options as well as lounge amenities including The Spa.

How many visitors does this airport receive from all over the world?
The MCIA is the second largest airport in the Philippines. In 2017, MCIA served 10 million passengers. With the opening of T2, it is expected to serve a minimum of 12.5 million passengers in a year.
