    President Rodrigo R. Duterte on June 7 led the inauguration of the second terminal of the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA), which is expected to ease congestion at the Philippines’ second busiest gateway.

    The three-storey terminal covering 65,500 square meters (sq.m.) will service solely international flights starting July 1. MCIA’s Terminal 1 will be dedicated for domestic flights.

    The P17.5-billion MCIA expansion was the biggest public-private partnership (PPP) project awarded by the Aquino administration. In 2014, GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corp. (GMCAC), a joint venture of Bangalore-based GMR Infrastructure Ltd. and Megawide Construction Corp., won the contract for the project and the concession to operate and maintain MCIA for 25 years.
