MANILA -- Efforts to upgrade the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu continue as Transportation Secretary Art Tugade and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) are set to inaugurate the airport’s new Corporate Building on Thursday, 28 October 2021.
Completed last 21 March 2021, the six-story Corporate Building will house employees of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA) in a single building with better equipment and facilities. The new facility aims to improve services and accessibility to clients. Construction works began last 28 March 2021.
Identical to the MCIA’s design, the corporate office building will have passageways that are linked to terminal buildings to avoid crossing vehicle lanes.
Coinciding with Secretary Tugade’s inauguration of the MCIAA Corporate Building and Command Center is the inspection of the airport’s secondary runway, which is expected to be completed in May 2022.
On 06 May 2021, Secretary Tugade inaugurated the MCIA’s new taxiway and apron, which increased the airport’s aircraft parking capacity from 40 to 50 slots and maximized aircraft movement capacity.
The CAAP will also provide updates for other airport projects, including the progress and development of the Bantayan Airport in Bantayan Island, and the construction of Medellin Airport in the town of Medellin and Camotes Airport in the town of San Fransisco.
The development projects at the MCIA and construction of airports in Cebu strengthen the Department of Transportation’s (DOTr) continuous pursuit of providing world-class and reliable service to air passengers and help achieve economic growth and development in Cebu and the whole Central Visayas region.
