Good news — the new Mactan Cebu Airport terminal is set to open ahead of schedule! According to the Department of Transportation, the new addition will be ready to open its doors in June, a month ahead of its planned launch.

The stunning resort-style terminal will be the first of its kind in the country as it takes inspiration from the island and its heritage of craftsmanship.

Patterned after ocean waves, the new terminal is the work of design bigwigs such as Budgi + Royal, and celebrated furniture designer, Kenneth Cobonpue.
