Not only will the new terminal look distinctly Filipino, it will also be a complete experience of Filipino hospitality the moment you set foot here,” said GMCAC president Louie Ferrer.

It wave-shaped, barrel-roofed structure is created from arched beams made of glulam woods, which were imported from Austria. The arched roof structure is said to unveil the beauty of the ocean, enriching the terminal’s interiors as a resort-inspired gateway.

Floors at Terminal 2 are, likewise, embedded with mother of pearls, showing off Cebu’s charm and strength being surrounded by pristine beaches and dive sites.

With a much bigger space, Terminal 2 will also offer exciting and wide-ranging retails environment. More local and international brands will be up for display at the new terminal giving passengers wider retail therapy options.

“The new airport will be a destination of its own,” said Ferrer. He added, “The airport is more than a transfer point. We are making it a vital part of Cebu experience.”

Aside from this the airport will also have spacious restrooms located newar arrival gates, efficient baggage counters, and VIP lounges. Passengers will also anticipate that bigger screens which will project all the flight schedules.

Mactan Cebu International Airport logged 66,120 domestic flights and 21,440 international flights in 2017. Six new airlines made MCIA one of their homes – Air Juan, Juneyao Airlines, OK Air, Sichuan Airlines, Lucky Air and Pan Pacific Airlines.

From 23 destinations in 2014, Cebu is now connected to 33 domestic destinations, which include smaller islands in the Visayas as of February 2018.

GMCAC is now working to connect Cebu to Europe, Middle East, United States, Australia, and other countries in Asean.

“Linking MCIA to more international destinations brings significant achievements for Cebu. It encourages more trade exchange as well as provide travelers with more airline options,” said Ferrer.

J Tower Residences – Investing in Mandaue City by Mayor Lugi Quisumbing

Investing in Mandaue City by Mayor Lugi Quisumbing

We are very much privileged as well because in any development in a certain city or municipality it wouldn’t be as successful as it is without the support of our officials. We’re very much privileged today because our very own mayor of Mandaue City is here with us to celebrate this special occasion, so ladies and gentlemen another big round of applause please to our wonderful Mayor here in Mandaue City Mayor Luigi Quisumbing.

Good afternoon everybody especially to Mr. Justin Uy and the team behind JIPROP and J Tower, kanadtong tanan maayong hapon.

It’s a good time to live in the city of Mandaue.

Over the last year we have registered the largest drop of crime in the region, we have allocated over the last two years the largest budget ever for infrastructure for the city of Mandaue which means that we will see drastic changes in the condition of the roads, widening of the roads, and we are currently working together with the national government to explore mass transit options.

The reason for all of that is because Mandaue City lies in the heart of the province of Cebu you can’t get anywhere North, South, East or West without passing through Mandaue City.

Now in the past that has both been a blessing and a curse, a blessing because it has brought so much industry, it has brought so much economic opportunity to the people that live here. A curse because as you know it also causes our traffic to be quite bad because of the traffic congestion but even with the challenges that the city has faced over the last few years, over the last few decades. The city has grown has thrived like a rose in concrete and it’s because of the industry and vision of people like Mr. Justin Uy.

For many years, the products of his industry have already been iconic, the dried mangoes that people know and love so well have become a symbol of Cebu itself. Many people don’t know that the most popular brand of all is from Mandaue City a product of Mr. Justin Uy and now with unveiling of J Tower we go from one iconic product to another.

The J Tower which is going to be the tallest tower in the city of Mandaue is truly going to be an iconic landmark that all of us will be able to see for miles around because quite frankly there is no building in the City of Mandaue that will approach the height and the grandeur of J Tower Residences. We’re sure that in the years to come we will use J Tower Residences as reference point, we will use J Tower pointed out as a uniquely Mandauehanon landmark and with the facilities of J Tower Residences and of J Centre Mall and the Sky Water Park.

I’m sure many families many friends are going to be with the congregate and have a wonderful time.

Believe me I have a six-year-old daughter and I can barely get her out of Sky Water Park whenever we come to visit from time to time. So I’m sure the families that are going to live here are going to be able to have a lot of fun and grow together as a family which is really the most important, the most important gift of all, so again the JIPROP, Mr. Uy to the entire team that went into the design and will go into the execution of this beautiful building. Thank you very much for your continued trust in the city of Mandaue.

Thank you for the economic and employment opportunities that this property will bring to the people of Mandaue and we look forward to many many more developments in our city in the years to come. Congratulations.
