The new terminal of the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) is expected to increase the airport's annual passenger capacity from 4.5 million to 13 million, and will be catering to travelers from both domestic and international flights. And you could visit the place sooner than you think—the terminal-building is scheduled to be inaugurated on June 7 and opened to the public on July 1. Will we see you in Mactan by then?
