We are working with GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corp. (GMCAC) as well as with the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) and the Office of Transportation Security (OTS) to ensure that our facilities and services are adequate to cater to more passengers who might divert from Boracay to Cebu,” MCIAA assistant general manager Gleen Napuli said.
For the safety of tourists as well as ordinary passengers, we are monitoring vessel movements with the help of auxiliary groups to check out suspicions elements,” PCG-CVD Deputy Commander Edgar Boado said.
Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board 7 Director Ahmed Cuizon said that they discussed preparations for a possibly higher influx of tourists in Cebu and Central Visayas in light of environmental concerns in Boracay, a popular beach destination in Malay, Aklan.
