by Ellon Labana

Aboitiz InfraCapital GMR Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation (AGMCAC), operator of Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA), continues to enhance passenger experience with the launch of its newest transfer system service dubbed “Cebu Connect.”

Cebu Connect is designed to facilitate efficient and seamless airport transfers within MCIA, thereby reducing layover time and maximizing comfort and convenience for travelers.

Cebu Connect aims to boost tourism in the Philippines by positioning Cebu as an ideal entry point for both domestic and international tourists. Cebu’s strategic location in the heart of the Philippines offers easy access to many stunning destinations in Central and Southern Philippines, such as Siargao, Camiguin, Bohol, Boracay, and Palawan, all just a short flight away.

“Cebu Connect aims to cut layover time from an hour to 30 minutes or less, giving both domestic and international passengers more freedom to travel to their destination. This is part of MCIA’s commitment to meeting global standards in airport operations,” said AGMCAC Chief Executive Officer Athanasios Titonis.

“Providing efficient and effortless travel through Cebu Connect is our way of enhancing tourism in Cebu and positioning MCIA among the world’s best airports,” said Cosette Canilao, President and Chief Executive Officer of Aboitiz InfraCapital Inc.,

AGMCAC collaborated with government counterparts, including the Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority, Bureau of Customs, and Bureau of Immigration, to identify the necessary resources and systems to realize this vision. With updated X-ray scanners, multiple counters, and a team of well-trained security and airport staff, passengers can expect safe and expedited transfers between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.

“Travel has become more challenging today than it was years ago. To ease the journey for passengers, we decided to simplify transfers, especially for frequent flyers, families with small children, persons with disabilities, and individuals on medical or business trips where time is crucial,” added Titonis.
