Cebu, Philippines – Domestic flights of Cebu Pacific Air and Cebgo will transfer back to Terminal 1 (T1) effective 16 June 2022, 00:01 PST, as Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) experiences a significant traffic growth, with Domestic demand now at 52% of pre-pandemic levels. In 2019, at its peak, MCIA saw a daily average of 25,743 domestic passengers.
Cebu Pacific Air and Cebgo flights departing before 23:59 of June 15, 2022, will still depart from Terminal 2 (T2).
All other domestic departures, such as Philippine Airlines/PAL Express, AirAsia, and AirSwift, will continue in T2 until further notice. These airlines will be transferred together to T1 at a confirmed date at least one (1) month before the transfer takes effect.
All International Arrivals and Departures will continue to operate in T2, while all Domestic Arrivals will continue to operate in T1.
Domestic departing flights were transferred to T2 on January 16, 2022, after T1 needed to be closed for repair due to Typhoon Odette last December 2021. The consolidation of operations turned into an opportunity for domestic passengers to experience travelling through the iconic Terminal 2, which operated before as an international terminal only.
