Uber Mactan Cebu Airport

The Mactan-Cebu International Airport has been operating on overcapacity over the past few years and we all can’t wait for Terminal 2 to open late next year! But since GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC) took over the operations of the current airport terminal in 2014, passengers have seen an improved airport experience.

And to further improve the passenger experience by making available all types of transportation options possible at the airport, Mactan-Cebu International Airport and Uber Philippines have partnered up in what I would call a “perfect match”.

Last Friday, GMCAC and Uber Systems Inc. announced together that passengers can now book an Uber ride as they arrive or depart the Queen City of the South. Push a button, get a ride, celebrate Cebu!

With this new partnership between GMCAC and Uber, passengers traveling to and from Cebu can now secure a ride with ease through the Uber app. I’ve been doing such since Uber was first made available in Cebu, even if their entry to the airport was not yet “legal”.
