Cebu Pacific and Cebgo domestic flights will be relocated from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 at the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) beginning June 16.

Significant traffic growth, with domestic demand now at 52% of pre-pandemic levels, has compelled the transfer, MCIA management said in a statement.

In 2019, at its peak, MCIA saw a daily average of 25,743 domestic passengers.

Data from Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority show passenger traffic, while still below pre-pandemic levels, improved in the first quarter of 2022 by 217% to 656,130 passengers from 207,045 passengers year-on-year.

Cebu Pacific Air and Cebgo flights departing before 23:59 of June 15, 2022, will still depart from Terminal 2.

In a separate statement, Cebu Pacific said notifications have been sent to all affected passengers. Those who booked through a travel agent or any other third party are encouraged to update their contact details to receive email notifications on flight reminders and updates.

Meanwhile, all other domestic departures at MCIA, such as Philippine Airlines/PAL Express, AirAsia, and AirSwift, will continue in Terminal 2 until further notice. These airlines will be transferred to Terminal 1 at a date at least one month before the transfer takes effect, MCIA noted.

All international arrivals and departures will continue to operate in Terminal 2, while all domestic arrivals will remain in Terminal 1.

Domestic departing flights were transferred to Terminal 2 on January 16, 2022 after Terminal 1 needed to be closed for repair due to Typhoon Odette that hit the area last December 2021.
