30-Minute Power Outage Hits NAIA

By ANJO PEREZ
March 1, 2012, 3:26pm

MANILA, Philippines — The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 was left without power for approximately 30 minutes early Thursday morning when the on-site powerhouse of the Manila Electric Company (Meralco) which supplies electricity to the airport terminal suddenly tripped.

NAIA Terminal 3 Manager Octavio Lina said their back-up generators immediately kicked in but it took them almost 30 minutes to re-energize the essential components such as lighting, aerobridges, security scanners, baggage conveyors and check-in computers— affecting the departure of one red-eye flight.

According to Lina, Cebu Pacific flight 5J190 bound for Inchon, South Korea was delayed for an hour because the Cebu Pacific staff had to process the boarding passes of the passengers manually.

NAIA-1 rehab, facelift complete by mid-2013

Posted on 02/06/2012 5:02 PM | Updated 02/06/2012 8:17 PM

MANILA, Philippines - The P1.16 billion-worth structural and beautification works on Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 or NAIA-1 will take 18 months to complete, or up to mid-2013, according to Transportation Secretary Mar Roxas.

“There will be a partial completion by December and work will continue until middle of next year,” Roxas said in a press briefing on Monday, February 6.

The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) announced that 5 companies have expressed interest in undertaking the much-awaited structural rehabilitation and facelift of the international terminal facility that greets and bids goodbye to tourists, businessmen, overseas Filipino workers.

The DOTC will auction the project with the following AAA-rated companies participating:
DMCI
DDT Konstract Inc.
Hillmarc's Construction Corp. (clients include SM Mall of Asia)
EEI Corp. of the Yuchengco Group
Datem Inc.(clients include St. Luke's Medical Center Global City)


The NAIA-1 was slammed as one of the worst in the world for "a snooze or long transit," by the Guide to Sleeping in Airports, which cited structural flaws, unclean bathrooms, lack of services. Other unhappy passengers have likewise voted in online travel sites that NAIA-1 is among the world's worst.

These have hastened the government's plans to improve the airport facility, though the choice of designers for the terminal was controversial before.

The DOTC has brought a team of consultants from the Singapore's Changi Airport, the world's best. They studied passenger flow and identified key areas and facilities for improvement.

“They made recommendations as to the relocation of facilities. They noted certain choke-points and made recommendations where to relocate and open new areas as well,” Roxas said.

Current plans have made the removal and upgrade of the escalators a top priority for facilitating more passenger movement between the departure and arrival halls. The comfort rooms are also slated for demolition and replacement.

DOTC has said it's focus will center on mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection revamps but smaller aesthetic fixes such as changing out the tiles, fixtures and water piping are also part of the plan.

To reduce waiting time of international airline passengers, immigration counters will be increased by 50%, according to Roxas.

A rapid exit taxiway will also be put in place to speed up aircraft landing and reduce flight delays, he added.

Roxas said the taxiway would let the airport reach its target of 45 takeoffs and landings per hour. Currently, the facility can only take 36 takeoffs or landing an hour.

Roxas reiterated that plans to privatize NAIA-1 and the other international airport terminal, NAIA-3, remain. However, he said the structural flaws and, in the case of NAIA-3, the legal issues all have to be settled and completed first.

Roxas said that this year the DOTC will lead the government's charge to pump-prime the economy through key infrastructure projects. Infrastructure projects were delayed last year as the government said it was focusing on transparent processes and proper implementation.

Medyo out of topic

Will be flying to Euro in May, but we're still deciding which flight to take. Arrival in Schiphol.

a. Cathay - stopover in HK, or
b. Malaysian - stopover in KL

Which is the better airline? I've been to HK and I love their airport! Never been to KL.

Thanks!
