I thought CEB airbus planes are using the airbridges. That one on the pic isnt. Im confused with what procedure do they really have in here. hmm..

And yeah i doubt that PAL will separate their INternational and domestic operations. I believe they have agreed to move to T3 only if they can have both the operations there. They are also planning of putting up a domestic annex for the sole use of PAL in T3. I believe i have read it somewhere, though now i am not very sure if they are still pushing through with it.

The third terminal, Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3, was approved for construction in 1997. The ultra modern facility was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) to have a capacity of 13 to 15 million passengers per year.

Terminal 3 is built on a 63.5-hectare lot that sits on Villamor Air Base. The terminal building has a total floor area of 182,500 m², having a total length of 1.2 kilometres. A four-level shopping mall connects the terminal and parking buildings. The parking building has a capacity of 2,000 cars while the outdoor parking area has a capacity of 1,200 cars. The terminal is capable of servicing 33,000 passengers daily at peak or 6,000 passengers per hour.

Its apron area has a size of 147,400 m², 34 air bridges, 20 contact gates with the ability of servicing 28 planes at any given time. The terminal has 70 flight information terminals, 314 display monitors, with 300 kilometres of fibre optic I.T. cabling. It also has 29 restroom blocks. The departure area has five entrances all equipped with X-ray machines with the final security check having 18 X-ray machines while its baggage claim has 7 large baggage carousels, each with its own flight display monitor.

Very good picture update! It is good to see T3 in operation. I hope they finish T3 soon (shops, other facilities, etc.) so that more passengers travelling to and from Manila can enjoy this terminal soon! The waiting for it to be opened has taken way too long already! Hope to see this to be the main terminal of NAIA soon. Maybe they can then refurbish some of the older terminals and find a different place for that outdated domestic terminal! That would be a major improvement!

What Olympic? World Olympic or Asian olympic? If it's the same magnitude as World/Beijing Olympic, with curren infastructure, surely none in the Philipppines can accomodate it . Airport wise if all 3 Termial building is operational, I don't see why the Philippines can't accomodate all of the guests, but when it comes to venues? There is a need for a bigger and newer stadium and other facilities for it which would cost billions of dollars... Even if there is a DMIA airport in place, without the venues , it would not be a very enjoyable experience to the athletes and guests. There would be enough hotels I'm pretty sure.. just the venue would be the biggest problem..

I know sometime we need a mirror to see our mistake.

We should be an open minded person and we should learn to accept.

One thing I can suggest is just go for the positive. I can see that some of you here show more pathetic or dumb than the person you are attacking.

I know Philippines are great country, but this country need to have a great citizens.

We need to move forward.

All of us know that we love our own mother country. Word does nothing deed do everything.

A short consultation with a competent interior designer would have prevented this hodge-podge chopsuey look. The donut shop looked cheap, messy and flimsy- something you might find in a flea market "tiangge". And the country-style wooden chairs do not go well with the blue metal ones.

Like we have said before, it's still on a trial run. The concessionaires are only contracted for six months, MEANNING, EVERYTHING EXCEPT THOSE PERMANENT FIXTURE AND THINGS THAT BELONGS TO THE TERMINAL BUILDING THAT IS A PERMANENT PART OF THE BUILDING WILL STAY BUT THE REST ARE "TEMPORARY" that is due to the fact that the Philippine government is STILL WORKING on the LEGAL aspect of the building since the Philippine government EXPROPRIATE the building.

Do you even read the news? There are news articles posted here and in the Philippine thread as well in connection with the openning of Terminal 3. There are also articles on the internet you can read as far as the legal aspect of this once mothballed edifice. You don't pass judgement on something right away WITHOUT LOOKING AT FACTS. This is why the Philippines don't really progress because there are filipinos with this type of mentality. They whine on just about anything without looking and reading for facts.

There is this so called "constructive critism" there is also something called "senseless noise". Constructive critizism are very much welcome whether it is harsh or cold at times, the point is, if someone make constructive critism, it means they also looked at things in different angle and not complain because they are hasty on what they think relevant to complain, so far, hein never showed any of these. A good example is what he has been complaining about this time, the concessionaires. I believe I explained it clearly that those are temporary fixtures. Watch when he respond this time, he would still push for his convoluted ideas then create nothing but just a senseless and purposeless noise. Typical of those who is nothing but a chronic complainer whether it is sensible or non-sense.
