are they in your hard-drive or you have links to them?

if they are in your hard-drive, you have to find a host to hotlink them. One reasonable place is imagestation.com. After uploading the pictures, right click on them and go to properties. Copy the url (make sure it ends with .jpg or .gif, etc) and click on the IMG tab when you are posting on ssc. Paste the url on the IMG tab and then submit post!

I have the ones from SOM. But the pictures posted by someone are gone... maybe Jemini, you can post them

This is the best airport our country never had - or is at least being deprived of.

Boybaha replaced the pics I posted with the larger versions down there...

Not much chance of that happening, Edmund. It is scheduled (again) to open on June or July of this year....Hopefully the government keeps its word this time.

well those pics are quite dated, so by now they might have fixed those things, for the proposed opening in July.

Here's the info from SOM.com. I don't know where to find the technical stuff. It's really a shame it's tied up in government red tape and in the justice system. It's already built and the FIlipinos are not benefitting from it.

The SOM writeup says it's one of 2 new terminals planned. Where will the 2nd new terminal be? I haven't heard of this? Or are they referring to NAIA II? Already built (not by SOM) and already to capacity.

from SOM:

Philippine International Terminals Co., Inc. (PIATCO) commissioned SOM to design a new international passenger terminal (IPT3) at Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport. SOM is part of a team led by Pacific Consultants International (PCI) to design the project. The 1,890,000 sf (182,000 sm) terminal is the Philippines' first fully-privatized commercial airport development. It is one of two new terminals planned at NAIA that will increase the airport's capacity from six to ten million passengers a year.

The siting of the new Terminal building reinforces its importance as a symbolic gateway to the Philippines. It is immediately visible on arrival at the site by car or public transit. This location allows maximum flexibility to expand the Terminal to the south. It also provides substantial curbside space for meeters and greeters, with direct access to the Fiesta Duty Free Mall and the Terminal's Food Pavilion.

In concept, the new Terminal responds to the Philippine climate by sheltering the departure curbside area with an extensive canopy. This dramatic linear enclosure also covers the curbside areas of the Fiesta Duty Free Mall and the Hotel's courtyard-like drop-off area. It gives a sense of unity to the entire complex, providing shade and weather protection for passengers and visitors on a year-round basis.

here's some info I got from the MIAA (Manila International Airport Authority) website...

Terminal 3

In 1990, the Manila International Airport Authority commissioned Aeroport de Paris to conduct the NAIA Master Plan Study which assessed Manila's need for new terminal due to th growing volume of international travel to and form the Philippines. In keeping with this study, International Passenger Terminal 3 is being built to accomodate 13 million passengers annually. When operational , comes December 2002 IPT shall accommodate all international traffic.

The NAIA Terminal 3, part of the 1990 MIAA Airport Master Plan, is undergoing construction at the 65-hectare property on the Villamor Airbase side near runway 13-31 and will have a capacity of 10 to 14 million passengers.

In 1997, the Government of th Republic of the Philippines awarded the build-operate-transfer contract of NAIA IPT 3 Project to the Philippine Air Terminals Co. Inc. PIATCO is a consortium of Philippine, German, Japanese and Singaporean companies name Philippine Airport Ground Services Terminal Inc., Peoples Air Cargo and Warehousing Co., Fraport AG Frankport Airport Service Worldwide, SB Airport Investment and the Nissho Iwai Corporation.

It is envisioned that the NAIA Terminal 3, undergoing construction under a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) scheme (under Republic Act 6957, amended by Republic Act No. 7718), an act authorizing the financing, construction, operation and maintenance of infrastructure projects by the private sector and for other purposes, will be operational by year 2002. The People's Air Cargo and Warehousing Co., Inc. (PAIRCARGO), which has formed a Php10 Billion company- the Philippine International Airport Terminal, Inc. (PIATCO), qualified for the BOT Concession of the NAIA Terminal 3, as per the requirements of the Department of Transportation and Communications.

NAIA IPT 3 is part of the Philippines moving forward into a new Millennium. It is committed to a high level of quality beffiting the new entryway to the Nation and the Nation's gateway to the rest of the world.

The main terminal building is designed to symbolize Philippine progress. NAIA IPT 3 will be a formidable structure, immediately visible upon entry form the main access road.

The NAIA IPT 3 will serve as a catalyst for the development of the site itself and adjacent areas such as establishments that will provide a broad range of services that will cater to international travelers and general public.

With its offer to the wide variety of attractions, NAIA and its surroundings will be transformed into a major destination within Metro Manila.

Facts at a glance

>> US$ 500 million facility
>> 13 million passenger annually
>> 1.1 kilometers building structure from end to end
>> 65-hectare site
>> 20,000-sqm shopping center

>> 2,000-car covered car park
>> 1,200-car outdoor car park

Facilities

>> 4-storey shopping mall
>> Duty free shops
>> Conference facilities
>> Food Court
>> Ecumenical chapel

Infra-Support Facilities

>> NAIA Expressway
>> Surface Road Improvement
>> Fuel Farm
>> Terminal 2 and 3 surface connection
>> Monorail connection
>> 80 Megawalt Meralco Electric Power Substation

Percent Accomplishment

>> 92.00% as of May 2002
>> Soft opening on November 25, 2002
>> Full operation on November 26, 2002
-----------------------------------------------------
I think construction work was stopped when the gov't and Piatco's legal dispute began, so til now it's only 90+% done...

I read somewhere that last time this guy (the writer) passed by there, a lot of the construction was left alone and so he estimated some $2M would be needed to finish up the unfinished work that had been destroyed naturally...

Some of the unfinished parts probably deteriorated because of the weather or something. All I care is that they get the thing opened before the end of the year...!!

Gov't to tap appraiser for NAIA terminal 3
Posted: 7:51 AM | Mar. 03, 2004

THE GOVERNMENT has agreed in principle to hire an independent appraiser to determine just compensation to be paid to Philippine International Air Terminals Co. Inc. (PIATCo) for the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) passenger terminal 3.

Transport Secretary Leandro Mendoza said that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo remained keen on opening NAIA 3 during her current term which ends in June.

"I think it is easy to open NAIA 3 as long as we resolve the compensation issue," Mendoza said.

Mendoza said the government and PIATCo have "informally agreed" to get a third party assessor to determine not only how much should the consortium be reimbursed but also to assess whether NAIA 3 was built according to design and specifications.

The new airport terminal would need additional funds to make it operational and the government intends to deduct these incremental costs from the just compensation demanded by PIATCo.

Mendoza noted that the main problem with the PIATCo contract was that it was "overpriced" which was why the government was cautious in naming a price to the consortium.

The Supreme Court on Jan. 21 "denied with finality" an appeal by PIATCo to reverse the high tribunal's May 2003 ruling voiding the consortium's controversial contract for the NAIA 3, citing irregularities in the bidding and onerous provisions of the contract.

The SC ruling unequivocally placed on the government the duty to pay PIATCo before taking over the project.
