Comfort rooms in each satellite is being renovated as well and therefore closes for public usage. This is a good news.

Without ANA, this part of the departure area will be as gloomy as this. Waste of space and a/c for that space. Let's hope CX and SQ will soon move in here.

Here are some pics that I took at T1 last May. The renovated section looks nice. The pre-departure waiting area is now carpeted, has soft seats, and a nice ceiling

Jet Airways to add 7 new aircraft this fiscal, fly new routes
Published: Wednesday, Jun 1, 2011, 3:30 IST
By Sindhu Bhattacharya | Place: New Delhi

With air traffic growing at a healthy pace, Indian carriers are once again looking to add capacities. Jet Airways, India’s biggest airline, plans to acquire 6-7 new narrow body aircraft this fiscal.

These aircraft would be deployed on domestic and select international routes in such a way that the domestic leg is completed during day time and international destinations (nearby countries) can be serviced at night.

In the next three years the airline plans to add as many as 24 aircraft but some of these additions would be through replacements under sale and leaseback. Airline officials said that the 6-7 narrow bodies for this year would be completely new additions. With new aircraft coming in, can new destinations be far behind? Jet has already received traffic rights for a daily service between Mumbai and Manila in the Philippines and is expected to launch this during the upcoming winter schedule. Besides, a daily Delhi-Amsterdam service is also on the agenda from this winter.

Officials said the Manila flight will also offer enhanced connectivity to Gulf countries and so Jet plans to simultaneously increase frequencies of its flights to the Gulf region, too.

“There are no new flights to either Europe or North America for now. But the Manila daily service will provide good connectivity to Gulf passengers. We plan to add 2-3 flights daily to the Gulf region this winter, where we already do 12-15 flights a day,” officials said.

Meanwhile, the airline has already begun daily flights to Milan from Delhi and is expected to soon receive permission to get into code-share agreements with Italian carrier Alitalia to use the latter’s network for providing onward connections to other European cities and to North America. Once this permission is through, Jet is expected to begin a daily service to Rome, too.

Jet’s international expansion comes just when competitors such as Kingfisher Airlines and low-cost carrier IndiGo are gearing up to fly to more overseas destinations.

Kingfisher and IndiGo have recently been permitted to launch flights to Colombo from destinations other than Chennai; and IndiGo has been awarded permission to go to Singapore — a route on which full service carriers, Air India, Jet Airways and Kingfisher, are already operational. But while all other Indian carriers are clamouring to service destinations to Southeast Asia and the Gulf, Jet is keen to consolidate its hold on European and North American routes.

NAIA Terminal 3 from the Philippine forums!

This area's pretty empty. Cebu Pacific check-in counters.



AirphilExpress check-in counters.



Airport User's Charge counter. Errr, I somewhat resented the fact that we paid 750 PhP to use an airport that has a non-functional air-conditioning system (well, at that time it was pretty hot inside NAIA T3).



Long line at the imigrasi.



Sorry for my ignorance but what is this area called, the one after the immigration? The area looks a bit sad. It would've been nice if there were more shops/restaurants here but I guess it has something to do with the current problems NAIA T3 have.



Boarding gates. Hmmm, I think it would be nice if the gates have some glass partitions.



Marlboro smoking lounge.



Just disembarked our plane (from Beijing).



Baggage claim area.



Customs.

Errr, we didn't have a good experience on our way back. First, our flight was delayed for 19 hours. Then, Cebu Pacific lost my sister's luggage. They said it might be in the next flight from Beijing but no assurance was given to us. I just hope they'd be able to return my sister's stuff.

Anyway, sorry if I posted a lot of photos.

So T3 isn't fully used? I thought Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific used the terminal?

Only Cebu Pacific uses NAIA-3 alongside Airphil Express and All Nippon Airways. PAL is still at NAIA-2.

Airport needs Nayong Pilipino for expansion

The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) is planning to acquire the 46–hectare Nayong Pilipino tourism complex in Pasay City for the extension of the aircraft taxiway and expansion of the cargo facility of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport’s (Naia) Terminal 2, also known as the “Centennial Terminal.”

This was disclosed to the Inquirer by Joseph Agustin, chief of the MIAA’s ground operations and safety division, who called the Nayong Pilipino acquisition a “future priority project” of the agency.

The MIAA, which is attached to the Department of Transportation and Communications, “will most likely get that property either in 2012 or 2013,” said Agustin.

Pagcor property

“We’re eyeing the expropriation and development of the area in three years’ time. This will be done through negotiations with (the state-run Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp.),” which owns the property, he noted.

Established in 1969, Nayong Pilipino was the first theme park of its kind not only in the Philippines but also in Southeast Asia.

It featured, among others, miniature versions and replicas of the country’s top tourist attractions, like the Mayon Volcano in Albay, the Banaue Rice Terraces in the Cordilleras, Vigan houses in Ilocos Sur, Chocolate Hills in Bohol, and the Magellan’s Cross in Cebu.

In 2002, the then Arroyo administration stopped the park’s operations following the conversion of nearly nine hectares of the property into a parallel taxiway and service road connecting Naia Terminals 2 and 3.

Pagcor city

Pagcor is planning to put up a new Nayong Pilipino complex—a Las Vegas- or Macau- like gaming and entertainment center—at the reclaimed area near the SM Mall of Asia on Roxas Boulevard.

Aside from extending the Terminal 2 taxiway, the MIAA also plans to “expand the Centennial Terminal and the nearby Cargo City,” according to Agustin.

Meanwhile, the MIAA is “coordinating with the Nayong Pilipino management to clean up the former tourist complex,” which is believed to be hosting bee colonies.

“There is still no confirmation that the same bees that disrupted Naia Terminal 2 operations and caused flight delays (on May 19) came from the nearby Nayong Pilipino complex. But we suspect they originated from that place because it’s not well-maintained,” said Agustin.

Bee attack

On May 19, Terminal 2 employees where stunned when bees suddenly swarmed around the control panels of at least five aerobridges at Gates 32 and 38 at around 1 p.m., preventing controllers from attaching the movable walkways to arriving airplanes.

Airport authorities immediately ordered the temporary closure of the terminal gates, saying the incident posed a danger to passengers and airport walkers.

Passengers were made to use the service stairs down the ramp to get to and off the planes that were forced to park at the tarmac.

It took more than 30 minutes to rid the operating panels of bees using smoke and vacuum cleaners.

At least two international flights and five domestic flights of Philippine Airlines were delayed due to the reported “bee invasion.”

The Bureau of Animal Quarantine had said the bees may have come from a “grassy spot or vegetation within the vicinity.”

A Terminal 2 official, on the other hand, said they were not discounting the possibility that the bees could have been smuggled by a passenger.

Bird strike deterrent

Meanwhile, the MIAA is set to install later this year at least three Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) units at the Naia property to address the recurring “bird strikes” that have hampered flights.

With the installation of the LRADs, which cost P7 million apiece, the MIAA is aiming for “zero bird strikes” within the 13–kilometer radius of Naia’s four terminals.

LRAD is the same US technology being used by, among others, the Joint Maritime Forces and commercial vessels in the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean to repel Somali pirates, and American troops to deter suspected terrorists and insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The LRADs are stronger, more painful to the ears and have wider coverage, according to Agustin.

At present, the MIAA uses pyrotechnics, avian alarms, amplified prerecorded bird distress calls and physical deterrents like balloons to prevent bird strikes.

I just arrived yesterday morning from Singapore and it was okay, but granted, it was early morning. Departures needs more stores, while arrivals should expand to allow for more space.

Remember that the original plans for terminal 2 was for domestic flights while terminal 3 would have been for international flights. Obviously, what we have today at both terminals is due to the lack of discipline from the MIAA officials and their follow through to keep the airports to their original design function. Current capacity of all our airports is already double the intended capacity of the original design. Terminal 2 would actually be great for all domestic or regional flights. But there should also be an underground airport train that would connect all terminals at NAIA.

I'm just wandering what type or kind of Architecture design are these buildings? It is not a typical "classic design" nor a modern design and I believe they are only in the philippines i think, what are the inspiration of these design or their theme because you can see a lot of hard concrete square?
