There's something new to be proud of in Cebu. 

President Rodrigo Duterte inaugurated on Thursday a P17.5-billion passenger terminal built by Philippine-Indian consortium, GMR-Megawide. 

World-renowned Cebuano furniture-maker Kenneth Cobonpue and Filipino designer Budji Layug helped conceptualize the terminal, which has timber arches that look like an inverted boat hull, and a wave-like roof that evokes a tropical and resort-like feel. 

The Mactan-Cebu International Airport will host 26 airlines that will fly to 25 international and 30 domestic destinations, GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corp. said. Its Terminal 2 will begin commercial operations on July 1. 

Here are select images of the new terminal.
