Changes at NAIA

Recommended Posts

Posted

I was reading on a travel website where there is going to be big changes to where the different airlines arrive and depart from at NAIA, the only

thing mentioned in the post is that Qantas is moving to terminal 1 for arrivals and departures, the thread contained many complaints over the years 

about the standard of terminal 1, but it also said that the domestic airlines are also on the move.

Maybe they are going to make some improvements to terminal 1, or just a bulldozer.

If anyone has any further information please post.

If they had a rapid transit train between terminals (similar to the fast train at Hong Kong terminal) then it really would not matter to the general public what terminal they are using.  When they are all linked by fast train it is just like one big complex.

they do have a free shuttle between terminals. At least between terminal 2#3 I took this shuttle in March. It was easy to locate, followed the signs, signed in at the kiosk and was clean modern and effiecient.

Philippine Airlines also have a shuttle for inbound passengers with a connecting domestic PAL Express flight, I've used it a couple of times in the last year.   Modern buses and weren't crowded.

I'm confused with all these terminals. I've used terminal 3 several times recently for both international and domestic flights so that''s easy enough. There is then what I call NAIA which is the old International terminal and the old domestic terminal that predates NAIA so should be terminal 1 or is it. I've also heard millennial mentioned.

Yep!  Although there are actually two run ways (one much smaller that can accommodate light aircraft and smaller commercial planes e.g. A320).   Problem is that the two runways cross eachother meaning only one can be used at a time.
