DESCRIPTION OF AIRPORT
The Mactan (Cebu) International Airport is located in Mactan Island, province of Cebu in Central Philippines and connected to Cebu City, the provincial capital 20 kilometers due southwest, through the Mactan-Mandaue bridge and Marcelo Fernan bridge.

It is vital international gateway to the country’s economic prosperity.
It started operations in the mid 1960’s as the replacement of the Lahug Airport, which was situated within Cebu City and had no more room for expansion due to safety and physical constraints. It was then expanded and further developed to truly deserve to its name – Mactan (Cebu) International Airport.
Due to the steady increase of traffic and passenger volume and the introduction of wider bodied aircrafts coupled with the emergence of modern aviation technology, some airport facilities have become obsolete and inadequate.
