New fuel system at Mactan International Airport to increase plane traffic to Cebu
An official stated on Saturday that the installation of a fuel hydrant system (FHS) at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) will hasten aircraft turnaround and boost air traffic in Cebu.
According to MCIA General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Julius Neri Jr., the new fuel delivery system would help the province become the top tourist destination in the center of the Philippines and a major transportation hub before the country’s economy resumes.
“The FHS allows us to turn around more aircraft faster, which is a major accomplishment for the MCIA. The efficiencies and enhanced capacity that arise are quite timely because they will undoubtedly also help our soon-to-be-completed second runway, according to Neri.
The completion of the FHS ensures safe and effective operations at the airport, enabling a higher fuel supply rate to the aircraft, according to a statement from the GMR Megawide Cebu Airport Corp. (GMCAC).
The new hydrant has less ground support equipment movement and a systemized fuel inventory management.
According to Rafael Aboitiz, director of the GMCAC, airport officials noticed a considerable rise in aviation traffic over the MCIA, which prompted them to create a system that would allow for a quicker turnaround of more aircraft without compromising security or operational effectiveness.
Aboitiz noted that the MCIA is “the second busiest gateway in the country,” and that “with the FHS, fuel delivery rates to the aircraft (have) increased dramatically with decreased ground support movement and enhanced availability of aircraft stands.”
Friday’s ceremony to turn on the FHS at the MCIA grounds was headed by Neri and Aboitiz and other government representatives.
Attending the occasion were representatives from Petron Corp., airline operators, and airline management.
The FHS was established using money from GMCAC, according to Neri, who spoke to the Philippine News Agency (PNA). However, no data were made public.
He claimed that Petron built the gasoline storage facility since it would be the one to supply fuel to the repaired aircraft.
