New security measures implemented at MCIA
Four new screening and x-ray machines were installed at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA) recently. MCIAA General Manager Steve Dicdican said the machines scan the luggage of passengers without their knowledge. While these machines are small, they can thoroughly screen luggage. Moreover, the machines add another layer of security at the airport. Dicdican added that with the machines in place, they can remove the x-ray machines position at the entrance of the domestic terminal. In this manner, the area will be decongested and passenger inconvenience is reduced. The move also enjoyed the support of the Cebu Alliance of Tour Operations Specialists president Alice Queblatin. Queblatin said security should be prioritized in order to create a safe environment that is enticing for tourists to visit .
Rooms still available in many Cebu hotels for the holidays
Even as the holidays are in full swing, there are still some rooms available in many hotels in Cebu. These hotels include the ones located within the city and those in Mactan Island. While there are still rooms available, it is advisable to reserve early to ensure you can get a room for the New Year. Additionally, room availability will also change once the Sinulog season is in full swing.
