Manilla Ninoy Aquino (MNL) Airport
Manilla Ninoy Aquino MNL Airport Overview
Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport MNL, also referred to as 'NAIA' , is one of two international airports in the greater metropolitan area of Manila (the other is Diosdado Macapagal) and is at present functioning as the main international gateway to the to the Philippines and beyond.
The Airport is located along the border between Pasay City and Parañaque City, about 7 km south the city border of Manila, the Capital of the Philippines, and southwest of Makati City. The Airport can be reached directly via Naia Road, which connects to the Manila-Cavite Expressway.
With two runways and over 32 million passengers served, Manila International is at present hub for Cebu Pacific, Airphil Express, Philipine Airlines, SouthEast Asian Airlines & Zest Airways. It also is served by a good number of major international airlines, including United Airlines, offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.
NOTE: Presently, there is a choice between maintaining Clark & Aquino Airports, supporting each other, or 'giving up' NAIA (Aquino) in favor of CIA (Clark), which is three times larger than NAIA, with presently 40 percent overcapacity . It was suggested recently that the developments of both Clark & Aquino Airports should continue until the fast-rail shuttle becomes operational from Clark Airport to Metro Manila in just 20-30 mins. As per Transportation Secretary, different plans for CIA & NAIA would be discussed in the Cabinet and ultimately with the President for approval - expected soon.
Airport Terminal Fee Rules: 1. Domestic passengers will now have the fee included in their ticket when making reservations. 2. Transfer passengers need to pay the fee of Php 200 before boarding connecting flight.
The on-Airport Manila Airport Hotel is on Ninoy Aquino Avenue, near Terminal 1 & its parking facilities.
Manila International has four passenger terminals -Terminals 1, 2, 3 and the Domestic Terminal 4 are at different locations. To get from terminal to terminal, you can take a taxi , a jeepney, or a bus.
Future Airport developments: Plans are in place to expand the NAA Expressway by another 4.83 km to a total of 9.37 km - leading directly to the Airport, while links will lead directly to the passenger & cargo terminal. When completed it will drastically reduce traffic congestion.
