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 shuttle bus during daytime hours runs every 15 mins (international arrivals need to clear immigration & Customs first);
- 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!

Important Updates:
- Traffic: A new expressway to the Airport is to be completed in 2017. Until that time the MMDA (Metro Manila Development Authority) is in charge of current major thoroughfares (Nino Aquino Avenue, Domestic Road, Andrews Avenue & Sales Avenue).
- A new passenger flow was implemented for those entering T3's Departure Lobby.  The first 5 entryways are reserved for passengers only:  At main entrance doors passengers need to present their travel documents to security pesonnel - while all others will use the sixth entrance at the end of the lobby. T3's Level 4 with shops & restaurants remains to be accessible to both passengers & non-passengers.
- Eliminating long queues - particularly at T1:  The problem of passenger processing with long queues has been addressed by adding two more shifts at the Arrivals immigration area - making it 5 shifts over a period between 6am & 7am the next day:  (the 3-shift deployment at Departures area remained unchanged). Immigration staff is increased during busy hours and decreased during off-rush hours.
