BI readies personnel for new Cebu airport terminal
BUREAU of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime Morente said on Friday that they would be hiring new immigration officers and field more personnel at the MCIA.
As of posting, Morente said 12 immigration officers were deployed in the latest batch of immigration personnel already stationed at MCIA Terminal 2. The terminal is scheduled to open on July 1, Sunday.
Marc Red Mariñas, chief of the BI Ports Division, said the deployment of additional officers was necessary in view of the “increasing volume of international flights and passengers” at the MCIA.
The MCIA management announced on June 25 that the second terminal would cater to international flights from South Korea and China.
It expects the operation of the new terminal to increase the MCIA’s capacity to more than 12.5 million passengers a year.
