Gallery and Facts
The 45th busiest airport in the world is Ninoy Aquino International Airport with 31 million passengers passing through in 2012. Ninoy Airport is the main airport for the Philippines and is situated in the middle of Pasay City and Paranaque.
Often also referred to as Manilla International Airport, Ninoy Aquino Airport is about 9 miles (15 km) south of Manilla the Philippines capital city. Ninoy Aquino International Airport however is still the official name, it is named after the Senator Ninoy Aquino Jr. who was assassinated at the airport itself 30 years ago!
Ninoy Aquino International Airport Reviews (21)
The NAIA is one of the world’s busiest airports; it is considered as the most diversified airport in the world because of different cultures and attitude, its staff posses, condition of the terminal buildings, customer service orientation set towards its passengers and its rich historical background.
The best airport
I disagree, the Manila Airport is the best, I met my wife at the airport, we got married across the street close to the airport because of what it means to us, I’m naming my son Ninoy Aquino Perez Chete; infrastructure is a little bit old fashioned but it serves the purpose.
NAIA - Terminal 1
After my check-in at terminal 1, I had a lot of time but the staff did not allow me to leave the terminal. This is illegal deprivation of liberty. My Philippine wife has always problems at the check-in with her travel documents, unless they are OK. The staff is complete incompetent or/and corrupt and unfriendly. The food is overpriced and of bad quality. The service is lousy.
NAIA Terminal 1 is a total disaster and leaves the tourist with a really bad feeling. Terminals 2 and 3, on the other hand, are excellent. If the Phils wants to encourage the tourist then all international flights should arrive/depart from T2 or T3.
Terminal 1 – What else can I say, it’s cheeky way back 1970’s but its too out-dated and a bit cranky esp. the luggage carousel. Needs a "major major" makeover. One good thing though, it has free WiFi access on the pre-boarding gates. Terminal 2 – Used exclusively by PAL and it’s clean, nice, and straight forward. International flights berth on the north-wing terminal and the domestic on the south-wing terminal. Connecting international to domestic flights (when you fly PAL) needs transferring from both wings requires you to get out of the lobby and is quite troublesome. Good thing you could check in your connecting domestic flights upon arrival. An exclusive lounge for business travelers. Terminal 3 – Huge, spacious and clean just make your travellator work all the time. Lots of shop and dinners opening that gives you ample choices whether in the departure or on the pre-boarding area. Domestic Airport – No jet bridge, so you get wet when it rains but it still works, at least. A shuttle bus/van would be transfer you between the terminals at US0.50 or grab the airport (yellow) cab starting at US1.60 if your in a rush.
Naia 1 Should Be Replaced!
I admit, NAIA 1 is definitely bad compared to the other Asian airports. But I have seen changes in the past months like quicker immigration clearance (though I suspect they don’t do a very thorough check when allowing people, especially whites), serviceable trolleys. Still, if I am a first-time tourist coming, I would be very disappointed with the facilities and the personnel. And why are there a lot of airport personnel loitering around doing nothing? And what’s with a custom’s declaration form separate from the embarkation card, with blatant ads of cheap wine/ciggies or a local cell network? If this country wants to attract some of the tourist dollars, they better spruce up their airports! An airport of more than 50 years needs replacing, can’t the government see that?
The Manila Domestic Airport
In the beginning, it was a domestic airport. It was constructed in 1948. Several airlines, including Philippine Airlines, operated here. However, the terminal became outdated as new terminals were built. Philippine Airlines eventually moved out in the 1980s and built their own building, exclusively for their own use. As the 1990s saw the liberalization of the air industry, new airlines were established. Cebu Pacific Air became the largest operator of the terminal since Philippine Airlines a decade ago. As the airline industry grew, the terminal became too crowded for Cebu Pacific’s operations. On Aug. 1, 2008 the airline moved all of its operations to the newly built Terminal 3. Congestion has eased since then. New airlines are being established and are making the domestic airport their base of operations. Zest Air is currently the largest operator of the domestic airport.
An update on Manila airport. Once again I used Manila airport, (for the 13th time in 6 years Mr Jack A, I have an apartment in Makati) and yes it was economy. The new terminal is large, clean, cool and suffers from a shortage of signing. Apparently one is expected to simply know where things are. Oh yes…the "security fee" is now up to a massive 750php, and is still payable in cash, no cash = no flight. There is still no way a passenger can get from one terminal to any of the others inside the airport. You still have to use public transport OUTSIDE the airport to get from terminal to terminal. Taxis still charge 3 different rates. 1, local rate….2, tourist rate….3, American rate. No improvement anywhere, at least the roof hasn’t collapsed, again. Be thankful for that little mercy.
The staff is great, very courteous, always smiling. The building is spacious but shops are limited, some stalls are not yet occupied. I will recommend this to my friends. Very ironic considering the main international terminal is already old. I heard they’re making a new one, a few miles north of the capital.
It’s like any other airport for all I know. Filipinos are fun to be with. Yeah, Mr. Moore here must have been traveling Economy and smells like a first-timer. Dude, a teacher in Vietnam earns much less. Google it.
I return to this airport to update you. The new International terminal is now open and as you might expect is an opportunity missed. It’s OK,, that all it is. WARNING. Do not go into departure area until the last possible moment, they are appalling. Stay in the main part of the airport, that’s not so bad.. THIS IS IMPORTANT. This airport has 4 terminals. 2 domestic and 2 international. NONE of these terminals are connected to ANY of the other terminals. … If you are going on from this airport you must leave the airport, get on public transport and go around the airport to the terminal you require on public roads. The taxis WILL rob you. PHP500 for a 2km ride. (A teacher here gets paid PHP600 A DAY) PHP100 is about right. Or use the shuttle buses (PHP20) This little bit of fun will take at least an hour, it took me 90 minutes. A ridiculous state of affairs. Remember this if your connecting flight is less than 3 hours away. Typically Filipino – Tries hard, fails appallingly.
MNL is an airport suffering from too much traffic and too little space. Delays are quite common because of this. There are 4 terminals scattered around the airport. There is a shuttle service between the terminals, but it is time consuming. All passengers must pay a terminal fee of 200 pesos for domestic flights and 750 pesos for international flights. Arriving passengers can choose to use "hotel taxi" for 750 pesos or metered yellow taxi for 150-250 pesos, depending on the distance. White taxis are not considered to be trusted. All terminals has their own management and different security routines. T1 is used by international airlines and has the tightest security. You may have to queue outside for security check before entering. There may be long ques at check-in. The building is old and not up to date any more. When arriving passengers have left the building, they are not allowed to re-enter the building. This is stupid, since the ATM is inside. It is also difficult to meet people arriving T1, since you are not allowed to enter the arrival area, but must wait quite far away. Arriving passengers must then thy find their way to the meeting point. T2 belongs to Philippine Airlines, and the building has an airy impression. Check-in seems to be quick and effective. No problems at all. T3 is new and spacious. It is used by Cebu Pacific, PAL Express and Air Philippines. No problems there either. Old Domestic terminal is from the 70s. It was a nightmare before T3 opened, but today is it used by two small companies: SE Air and Zest Air.
A few things have already changed, especially with the terminal 3 opening. Everything is organized, AC is working – great.
Manila International Airport
Like any other airports, MNL has its good side and bad side. Security is always heavy and tight (and should be SO!) Those complaining are most likely the ones riding in Economy Class. From my own travel experiences, MNL workers are always polite, courteous, and they SPEAK English! If you have nothing good to say about the Manila Airport, try buying a First Class ticket and experience something you’re not used to. The worst airports in the world are LAX, Rome, and Bahdad.
Worst Airport Among Asian Capitals
Ninoy Aquino airport was "new" I suppose. But how can the authority underestimates its usage so ridiculously? As others have commented, I had to line up outside the terminal for x-ray and metal detector check for almost 30 minutes. There are no signage or local staff whatsoever to tell you what are you lining up for. A tip for those with a domestic flight to catch, even if you’re travelling on the same airline — give it plenty of time in between your connecting flights. Once inside the terminal, it’s so jammed that you can’t go anywhere without your baggage cart rolling on someone’s feet (or your feet rolled on by someone’s cart). The air-conditioning is surely on the lacking side. It’s also confusing where the immigration counters are. There are just a handful of stores both before and after getting through the immigration. Don’t expect to get your last minute gifts here as they overcharge in major ways and the choice is so limited. The seat issue that many mentioned is still a huge problem. There are just not enough seats for all passengers so that many have to stand or even sit on the floor. There are minimal number of toilets so that there is always a line up (even for guys). I’d give this airport a no star if I can.
Terminal 1 Is Worse Than Terminal 2
Terminal 2 is worse than terminal 1. Some are expecting something better in T1 but that is just in their imagination because of the Filipino ways of services. I got several experience in T1 with very warm and humid climate control, long queuing not inside of airport but in outside of airport in such a hot soaking summer day. That shows T1. I agree the feature of NAIA is just reflecting what the PHP is at now. Telling you one secret, why they work so slow? Answer is not from their laziness but from the system. Their system overall is based on checking each other. so lousy…
Naia Manila International Terminal
Once we landed there, the lounge itself was small and cramped. The passengers stepped into a hot, uncomfortable lounge being guided to exits like cows in a barn. I don’t think there’s an AC system at the airport. As I arrived at night, I wasn’t expecting to have problems, but I was actually soaked I almost overheated. The Terminal is too small. It’s not able to cope with the large numbers of passengers. Crowded to its max. The maintenance of its baggage carts is way to low. You could find your cart wobbling when you push it. The baggage area is also too small. All in all it’s not an airport I like to use. It’s very uncomfortable, the food outlets are great though. The NAIA has a very low standard compared with other major Southeast Asian airports. I really hope they’ll open the Terminal 3 soon, at the opposite side of the runway/international terminal.

Ninoy Aquino Int. Airport
This airport is very much a reflection on the Philippines as a whole. As a whole, its very good, as an airport, not so good. Manila is a big SE Asian city, this airport is relatively big, but very fragmented. There two domestic terminals and they are a taxi ride apart. The New Domestic terminal used exclusively by PAL is new, clean cool and fresh.There are some franchised food outlets that are both good and cheap. The seating is steel benches that re-define uncomfortable and there’s not a lot of it. d expect to pay an airport security charge in cash in PHP before you get in. The staff are Filipino, that means not happy to be working, well you wouldn’t be either for the wages they get. The Old Domestic terminal is as the name suggests OLD. It caters for all other airlines. The check-in hall is small, cramped, crowded, hot, slow and uncomfortable. Handwritten blackboards announce which flight is checked in and where. Once into the main hall, things do improve slightly. There are good, cheap food outlets, a substantial meal can be had for about $2 (US) or less. Toilet facilities are just about acceptable. There is plenty of reasonable seating to be had, if not very spacious. Again it is hot, run down and clearly old, but not that bad. The Int terminal is relatively new but suffers from being small. There seems to be a thing about seats in this country, again there is limited seating, but it is a least comfortable. There are the usual food outlets, again quite good and cheap. BEWARE, on arrival you will be expected to stump up about 550php airport tax in cash, no cash=no entry. Embarcation cards are filled in and collected at the passport control which is notorious slow and without a sense of humour. Again beware, you will see that your flight is boarding VERY EARLY, maybe 2 hours before departure. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THIS You will find yourself in a departure lounge that is small hot and without any facilities at all, save a toilet. It is hot and again the steel seating will make you very sorry that you bothered. Wait in the main building as long as possible, its not wonderful but infinitely better than the alternative. A new terminal building is ready for use sometime 2007 and must be an improvement. It would have been opened in 2006, but a large section of the roof collapsed and delayed the opening. This airport is very much a reflection of the Philippines, tries very hard, fails very miserably. Functional, it is about as good as it gets, it’s an airport you will be pleased to have left.
There are 3 Manila airports: – NAIA (old international airport) – MIA (domestic airport) – Centennial (new international airport) the one you can see in the picture is the Centennial airport.
Manila International And Domestic
DOMESTIC TERMINAL – very very basic. The waiting area is not good, although flights do largely turn over and board rapidly. However, when delays occur – they are biggies! INTERNATIONAL – poor poor poor facilities; a national disgrace for a major city. Departure immigration queues are appalling – avoid if at all possible!

Terminal 1 is soooo bad it makes T2 and T3 look lovely, but kid yourself not, they are also among the worst in the world, even worse than some in very poor African nations. But T1 gets the honors. As a foreigner, one gets charged P 500 for an express lane (not optional and on top of the terminal fee) and this so-called lane takes twice much time as the regular one. Such a pity that this beautiful and wonderful country has such a bad airport!
