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, and that it is located to the northwest of Mactan Island, just south of Cebu Island. The two islands are really close to each other, and are connected by two bridges.

The second busiest airport in the country, after Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, Mactan-Cebu Airport dates back to 1956, the year the US Air Force built its 3,300-metre-long runway. Featuring a single terminal, and a taxiway that it shares with the Mactan Air Base of the Philippines Air Force, Mactan-Cebu Airport totally covers an area of 797 hectares, and is the first ever airport in the Philippines at which the Antonov An-225 Mriya, the longest and heaviest cargo aircraft ever built, could land in 2013.
