^ Sheesh, worse you could ever hear from a major airport. That would surely turn off the passengers, tourists and returning expats...

Which airline were you on when you arrived here? You must be talking about terminal one, the ugly one. It's used for all international flights except for Philippine Airlines and Air Philippines' (both domestic and international for both airlines). That's because they use terminal 2, the better one. By the time terminal 3 opens, all airlines in terminal 1 will cease operations and transfer to the new terminal.

This is Terminal Two (Philippine Airlines and Air Philippines)


This one's terminal one. (all other international airlines)

NAIA security procedure impresses UN inspectors

By Jonathan M. Hicap, The Manila Times Reporter

Good news for travelers. A team from the United Nations Counterterrorism Committee has declared security procedures at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) meets international aviation standards.

The UN inspection came at the heels of a newspaper report that a man claiming to be a security expert had smuggled bomb components into a flight from Manila to Davao and back without being detected. The man has since denied the story.

The team, established by UN member countries to monitor border control, airport and seaport security, made an on-site inspection of NAIA on Wednesday. It was headed by the executive director of counterterrorism executive directorate, with representatives from International Police, International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), UN Office on Drugs and Crime and Committee of the UN Security Council.

Shown around by General Manager Alfonso Cusi of the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), the team observed NAIA’s departure security procedure, from initial to final check. It observed the way passengers and baggage are examined, how immigration officers inspect travel documents for departing and arriving passengers, and how Customs examiners check baggage at the arrival area.

The team expressed satisfaction on the database of the Bureau of Immigration, which it found to have included in its most wanted list Islamic fundamentalists belonging to al-Qaeda and other terror organizations.

A MIAA official quoted the senior legal advisor of the UN’s Terrorism Prevention Branch as saying, “I am impressed with the way friskers and screeners do their job. Even VIPs are not exempted.”

The remark was prompted by the way security personnel subjected even the inspectors to a rigid screening procedure. One of them was even made to go back after the walk-thru detector went off. He was also made to take off his shoes.

For his part, Cusi said the result of the inspection validated the effectiveness of the security procedures the government had set in place to protect travelers.

“It makes us confident that we are on the right track,” Cusi said. “But we should not be complacent. There should always be room for improvement.”

Andres Caro, director of the Philippine National Police Aviation Security Group, said his agency “will continue improving the systems, with or without the threat of terrorism.”

I'm sorry but many, including myself, would disagree to the word you used to describe terminal 1. It is one of the classiest terminals in Asia, IMO. The thing is, it has exceeded it's capacity a long time ago and it's not well maintained.

To clarify things, my intention was to describe the airport's maintenance. That's why it became ugly. But, if we were to put into account the original structural lay-out, designs, etc., NAIA-1 is certainly a fine-looking airport.

t3 finished almost 5 years ago though, so now it is somewhat outdated to the airports opening in the timeframe it opens (if ever)
