GMR Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC), together with partner airlines, promotes its new flights and services of Mactan-Cebu International Airport to its tourism stakeholders in Cagayan de Oro during its sales mission Wednesday at Seda Centrio.
GMCAC, the private company managing the terminal operations and other related areas of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA), has partnered with different airlines namely Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, Philippines AirAsia, Cathay Pacific, China Eastern Airlines and Emirates to update travel agents, tour operators, and hotels of the new flights and different connections out of MCIA.
The sales mission is one of Mactan Cebu Airport’s marketing initiatives to keep tourism stakeholders, particularly travel and tour operators, informed of the recent developments in MCIA, highlighting the many destinations out of MCIA and the convenience that it offers to passengers who will use MCIA as their transit point.
Considered as the gateway to Northern Mindanao, passenger traffic growth from Cagayan de Oro is observed to be among the highest in Region 10, making it an important market for MCIA.
“There are students and business travelers who regularly fly between Cagayan de Oro and Cebu, and even beyond Cebu to other destinations in Central Philippines. Due to Northern Mindanao’s proximity to Cebu, Mactan Cebu International Airport is the most practical, convenient, and ideal transfer hub for the Kagay-anons and the rest of the travelers in Northern Mindanao,” said Aines Librodo, GMCAC Head for Airline Marketing and Tourism Development.
Now on its second year, GMCAC aims to institutionalize the sales missions every year, starting off with its first leg held in Davao last week. About 130 guests from various travel agencies, tour operators, and hotels attended the said sales mission.
In the succeeding weeks, GMCAC will visit Bacolod, Iloilo, and Tacloban for its series of sales missions on February 12, 13, and 20, respectively. (PR)
