[Clark Air Base proposal N/A]

Almost everyone assumes that Diosdado Macapagal International Airport at Clark Field will one day replace Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila as the main gateway to the Philippines. But it's all talk, nothing concrete yet.

All foreign carriers use T1 for now. T2 is exclusively for the use of Philippine Airlines and its subsidiary Air Philippines. Once T3 is operational all international flights will arrive and depart from there.

^ PAL insternational is overcrowded as well so, it needs a bigger terminal and since T3 is too big (for now) just for all other international carriers, it will be easier for PAL's passengers as well, if not, Lucio Tan needs to invest on expanding T3 towards the old Nayong Filipino Park for it's international operations.


To add more on the comments above, United does not fly to Manila anymore in over 7 years I believe. I don't think Alitalia, British Airways, and Air Niugini flies to Manila either and Luftanasa ceased serving Manila last year or two years ago..

Continental air from what I believe also ceased Manila operations, I believe they are codesharing with Cathay Pacific , so, you would have to take Cathay to HK then transfer to continental airlines going to any US continents. Now, Hawaiian Air just started it's service to Manila directly from Honolulu. It's just for an FYI.

After sooo much years of waiting, finally, Terminal 3 has its first flight this early morning (5am) from Manila to Caticlan (Cebu Pacific).

In the coming weeks, Cebu Pacific will transfer all its domestic flights and at the end of 2008 will be their International Flights.

PAL Express and Air Philippines will also be at Terminal 3.


Now, the Filipinos can finally taste a good airport (Thank God Manila Domestic Isn't in use anymore)

Manila's terminal 3 finally opens for business

MANILA, July 22 (Reuters) - A mothballed terminal at Manila's crowded international airport opened for business on Tuesday after a six-year delay and plenty of bad publicity for the Philippines.

"This has been a long time coming," Leandro Mendoza, the country's transport chief, told reporters.

Government officials and employees outnumbered passengers in the 240,000-square metre facility, which was meant to be in service in late 2002, because only a handful of domestic flights have so far transferred to the terminal.

A bitter dispute between the government and the consortium of builders, headed by German airport operator Fraport (FRAG.DE: Quote, Profile, Research), kept Terminal 3 shuttered and underlined the graft and legal uncertainties that can beset companies doing business in the Philippines.

The contract to build the new terminal was first awarded in 1997 when annual passenger traffic was 7.7 million. Today, around 23 million passengers use Manila airport annually, although capacity at the older terminals is just 18 million.

"This is like heaven when we just came from hell," said Lance Gokongwei, president of Cebu Pacific, the Philippines' top budget airline.

"It's going to be the same for our passenger experience."

Officials said the terminal, which has a capacity of 13 million passengers, would be fully operational for international flights within six months.

The Philippine government seized Terminal 3 in 2004 after a contract dispute with the Fraport-led consortium. Fraport and the joint venture company for the project are pursuing compensation claims for over $400 million.

Plans to open the facility in 2006 were delayed after part of a ceiling collapsed. Repairs and structural improvements have taken more than two years. (Reporting by Marnette Federis; Editing by Carmel Crimmins and Paul Tait)

Does anyone know if Air Philippines now is currently using the aerobridges of T3? I have read it somewhere, but i never saw any pictures to confirm that.

Also, this Aug 1 when 5J will be moving all of its operations, both domestic and international to T3, i am guessing their A319/320 planes will be utilizing the tubes as well?
