CEBU CITY, Philippines – The Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) reopened another route serving international destinations.
Last Monday, May 1, 2023, airport stakeholders marked the relaunching of another direct flight between Cebu and Japan. A ceremonial flight arrived at MCIA from Narita Airport at 2 p.m. on May 1, and will then be operational daily.
“[It will] operate daily departing from MCIA at 2 a.m. and arriving at 1:20 p.m. in Cebu for its turnaround flight,” said Edilyth Maribojoc, Corporate Affairs head of GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC).
With the resumption of the Cebu and Japan flights, MCIA now serves 10 international destinations, according to GMCAC, the private company co-managing and co-operating the airport. These include direct flights to South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Bangkok in Thailand.
