RE: Back with the airport wheelchair assistance.

I worked in MCIA with MIASCOR for 3 years. I handled CX and OZ flights and airlines NEVER have their own wheelchair assistance personnel inside the airport. It has always been the responsibility of the ground servicing provider that handle their flights. Major ground service providers in MCIA are MIASCOR, PAGGS, MACROASIA, TOPSERV, and SKY LOGISTICS (I dunno if they're still using that name up to now).

In the case with CX, you wouldn't notice any "BIG" difference with the ground and inflight crew since they all wear the same CX uniform. The only difference is that ground staff wear airport ID passes whereas CX flight crew wear the signature wing brush logo pinned on their uniforms.

Close... The tiles are made with real Mother of Pearl shells by a local Cebuano company according to one of the big honchos.

I think the tiles were chosen to resemble beaches.

I think the tiles were chosen to resemble beaches.

JVAZCO is a Manila company specializing in concrete floors. The floor finish is not tile, itís terrazzo or granolithic floor (very popular in the 80s - late 90s).

Maybe this top honcho was referring to another space with a different floor finish?

Anyhow, if it is true that bits of mother-of-pearl were put in the mix, this terrazzo floor looks perfect for the space. Iíve seen many terrazzo floors with mother-of-pearl in them, but here it becomes part of that goal to evoke a tropical resort-inspired design. Genius.

Agreed. What is shown is a flooring definitely not made of tiles.

Nice! Staying true to the 'resort themed airport' brand. Cool. I am waiting to see more.

Also, do you think if some areas will be carpeted, instead of tiled?

I saw this on Instagram (from cebuseo).

This is very interesting, where is this? control tower?

I can see that they are using flightradar24 to track flights.

Sorry, the flooring, not tiles, is made of concrete with mother of pearl shells.

I don't know if the shells are from Cebu or the floorings were made in Cebu but the somewhere along the production of the flooring, they integrated "Cebu" in the process. I'm just not sure if he meant Cebuanos help manufactured it or the floorings are made with something from Cebu, but Megawide-GMR kept the Cebu resort airport theme in mind.

Sorry for the confusion.

Some people see an airport as more of a glamour project rather than a public facility with specific purpose. Aesthetics is in the eye of the beholder but what's more important is that the facility passes all measurable criteria/standards you pointed out. There's always an ignore button if it comes to that.

It does feel like speckles of wood in the floor to reflect the ceiling, but my take on this is a grey granite floor best compliments wood, it's more pure and natural like glass and steel. I have to see what Mactan have in person but the picture is not convincing with the wood ceiling. I would also suggest a clear lacquer on the arches to give it some luster and emphasis because at a distance, the wood is redundant.

It's been a couple of days since I have not seen Juneyao Airline's Cebu To Shanghai Route. Is it currently suspended?

I believe he is a contractor for the airport operator. The airline may be responsible for requesting wheel chair assistance (after all the airline staff has more interaction with the passenger) and passes such request to the wheel chair assistance providers. Depending on the setup, the airline staff and contact them directly or through a dispatcher in the airport operator side.

the airline may have some responsibility in making sure such service is rendered but it does not necessarily follow that they are the ones directly performing such service.
In PAL , they get their salaries from EWMPC na kinontrata ng PAL at hindi ng airport management. Hope this is crystal-clear already. Majority of wheelchair brigades sa CEB Airport ay kinontrata ng airlines, hindi po ng airport.
