Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA) vows to support the Department of Tourism’s commitment to implement sustainable tourism through their 50-year master plan which envisions a passenger-friendly and sustainable airport.
“By increasing the throughput of people going in and out of the Philippines that will also increase our economy, and our tourism, and it will have a multiplier effect on the community around us.” Atty. Steve Dicdican, Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA)’s General Manager and CEO said.
In efforts to take part in the pursuit of sustainability, MCIA’s 50-year master plan includes developments to secure more sustainable water and electrical utility systems in the future.
MCIAA is studying proposals for reusing treated wastewater in addition to their plans to use rainwater catchments in order to more efficiently satisfy the water requirements of the airport without using too much groundwater.
The airport is also looking into more energy-efficient utilities that will add to the solar panels already in use.
