Manilla Ninoy Aquino MNL Airport Terminal Map Overview

Main Terminal / Concourses at Manilla Ninoy Aquino MNL Airport

The passenger terminal complex at Manila International Airport consists of four passenger terminals - T1 though T4 - also referred to as NAIA 1, NAIA 2, NAIA 3 &  NAIA 4.. Your departure terminal is determined by which airline you are using. To get from terminal to terminal, you can use a taxi, a jeepney or one of these shuttles:
   (a) a shuttle bus during daytime hours runs every 15 mins (international arrivals need to clear immigration & Customs first);
   (b) Philippine Airlines has its own shuttle sevices airside, between Terminals 2 & 3 - Airphil Express passengers may also use it.
NOTE:  As per recent passenger reviews, the taxi stand is a 'zoo' - getting a taxi may take up to one hour (and don't even think of using unlicenced cabs!).  Avoid, if you can, NAIA 1!
