President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to lead the inauguration of the world-class terminal 2 of MCIA.

The development of MCIA terminal 2 is a public-private partnership between DOTr-Mactan Cebu International Airport Authority and GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC).

The partnership is a 25-year Build-Operate and Transfer (BOT) scheme.

Construction of new terminal building started in mid-2015.

“The project involves the construction of a new world-class passenger terminal building in MCIA, with a capacity of about 8 million passengers per year; and the operation of the old and new facilities,” the PPP Center said.

GMCAC said the enhancements of existing terminal made possible the efficient accommodation of over almost 8 million passengers despite a design capacity of only 4.5 million passengers per annum.
