Manila Ninoy Aquino Airport

Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport also known as Manila International Airport is one of the two international airports serving flights for the Metro Manila Area and is the main international portal to the Philippines. The airport is located along the border between the cities of Pasay and Parañaque in Metro Manila at about 7 km (4.3 miles) south of Manila – the country's capital city. The airport was named after the late Philippine senator, Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr. who was assassinated at the airport in 1983. NAIA is also one of the 2 airports in the Philippines (the other is Clark International Airport) that can support aircraft as large as the Airbus A380. It also serves as a gateway facility for the logistics company, DHL.


There are 4 terminals in NAIA: Terminal 1, also known as the NAIA Terminal, services International flights. Terminal 2 is the Centennial Terminal divided into two wings: North Wing serves international flights while the South Wing serves Domestic. This terminal is exclusively used by the Philippine Airlines. Terminal 3 or the NAIA International Terminal is the newest and the biggest terminal in the airport and serves all international flights. Terminal 4, or most commonly known as the Manila Domestic Passenger Terminal, services all domestic flights in the airport. All 4 terminals have parking lots.

Transferring from terminals are a breeze as the Manila International Airport Authority runs a shuttle bus system that connects all 4 terminals for passengers who have connecting flights departing from another terminal. These shuttle buses run every 15 minutes round the clock, though passengers need to clear immigration and customs to use the system.

Philippine Airlines also operates an airside shuttle service between Terminals 2 and 3 for passengers connecting to PAL Express flights and vice-versa.

Walking is also a possible way to get from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 (and vice-versa) through the International Cargo Terminal using the same road used by public buses and jeepneys. The walk takes 15 minutes.
