This week is all about Cebu! Last October 17, Sleepinginairports.net (SIA) released it's yearly lists of Best and Worst Airports in the World, Asia, Africa and other Continents. Started on July 11, 1996, SIA is founded by Donna McSherry who is now heading a team of researchers, writers and an illustrators. This yearly Ranking of World's Airports are based on overall airport experience as determined by voters in their 2015 Airport Survey (powered by polldaddy). Luckily, Mactan-Cebu International Airport landed in 18th Place in Asia and the Best in the Philippines. Two other Airports in the country made it to Top 30, Iloilo Airport in 21st rank and Clark International Airport, which took the 24th place. In contrast, Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport ranked 8th in Worst Airports in Asia 2015.
