Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) was recently named one of Asia’s best airports. MCIA was awarded Asia Pacific Medium Airport of the Year during the CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence in Singapore. MCIA was selected among airports with over 10 million annual passengers for “having been the biggest standout strategically, and for establishing itself as a leader in the aviation industry.”
“MCIA’s positioning remains true to its destination,” Louie Ferrer, President of GMR MEGAWIDE Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC), explained to the Manila Standard. “While most other airports choose modern structures made of glass and steel structures, we stayed true to our island resort identity, with Cebu being one of the world’s favorite resort destinations.”
Other winners included Korea’s Incheon International Airport as Asia Pacific Large Airport of the Year, and Malaysia’s Senai International Airport as Asia Pacific Small Airport of the Year. This is the second time that MCIA was recognized by CAPA in the last four years. In 2016, MCIA was named Asia Pacific Small Airport of the Year.
