Mactan–Cebu International Airport

Getting to Cebu Province by Plane

Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB) owes its name to the fact that it’s the main airport of Cebu Province, yet is located in the northwest of Mactan Island, just south of Cebu Island. The 2 islands are really close to each other and are connected by 2 bridges.

The 2nd busiest airport in the country, after Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, Mactan-Cebu Airport is surprisingly small, with only 1 terminal and a taxiway that it shares with the Philippines Air Force. It’s also quite an old place, with the original construction dating back to 1956. Even so, it sees over 8.5 million passengers passing through every year.

There’s a great choice of transfer services available at Mactan-Cebu Airport. Air-conditioned taxis and minivans are available to take you to holiday destinations such as Moalboal (109 km away, costing about 2,770 pesos) or Oslob (134 km and 3,408 pesos).
