NAIA1 Immigration Counters Augmented

http://www.interaksyon.com/article/8...ters-augmented

By: Eric B. Apolonio, InterAksyon.com
May 16, 2014 4:44 AM

MANILA, Philippines -- In an effort to reduce the queuing of arriving passengers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminal 1 during peak hours, airport officials have put up seven immigration counters with four immigration officers (IOs) each to hasten the entry of the travellers into the country.Whereas before there were only two IOs per counter catering to the arriving passengers, now there are four IOs per counter serving the needs of weary travellers especially during the peak hours from 8am to 12 noon, from 3pm to 6pm and from 9pm to 12 midnight, said NAIA terminal 1 manager Dante Basanta of the new scheme in cooperation with the Bureau of Immigration.

Basanta added that there are about five to seven different flights arriving during the morning peak hours in a span of 30 to 40 minutes mostly from Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. The afternoon arrivals are mostly coming from the Middle East while the night flights carry passengers coming from United States, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong and Dubai. Bureau of Immigration (BI) terminal 1 head supervisor Dennis Opina said that with the additional IOs, the queuing system for immigration formalities will be decongested.Opina added that since March 1 the bureau launched the paperless approach for all in-coming Filipino passengers because they had already filled out forms prior to their departure at NAIA, while foreign passengers are required to fill up the arrival card but are exempted from submitting the same when departing because the bureau has already data of their entry into the country.

Another Runway to be Constructed at NAIA

http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/video/bus...nstructed-naia

Posted at 05/16/2014 10:37 AM

Another runway will be constructed at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.This was once of the things agreed on during a meeting in Malacanang, where San Miguel and Philippine Airlines president Ramon Ang presented his proposed solutions to the congestion of flights at NAIA.Transportation Secretary Jun Abaya confirmed the proposal has been approved.Now, they will just have to iron out the details and measure the open space beside runway 6-24.Ang also suggested buying the more modern navigation system Ground Base Augmented Systems (G-Bus).Abaya said they will first consult with the Civil Aviation Authority if that is acceptable.

They're just making NAIA more decongested. I'll just go for the planned $10B airport

No offence but can the Philippines afford such an expensive piece of infrastructure?

the cost will be shouldered by private investors. Philippine Airlines/San Miguel Corporation is the one who presented the proposal.
although the government had already expressed the same idea of reclaimation for the new airport for Manila in sangley point (the potruding land mass beside the proposed airport) or inside Laguna de Bay

In my personal opinion, Manila is at a crossroads in air travel: airlines like Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines compete for more flights, both domestically and internationally, of which the two largest carriers have been purchasing even more aircraft to support a growing flying public. On the other hand, the current international airport serving Manila and the rest of the immediate region is seriously overcrowded, and its runways are running at overcapacity (e.g. Instead of operating 24 flights per hour, the two runways now operate close to 40). Combine those with poor management (at least from the airport authority), it has caused the private sector (in this case, San Miguel Group, which owns Philippine Airlines) to develop their own airport—with their own expense—to address the problem sooner. Meandering through the public sector is indeed a complicated and hugely bureaucratic process that prompted the private sector to act on this endeavor to make the development and construction more efficient.

Actually, San Miguel Corporation's proposed airport is meant to replace NAIA. Ramon Ang, President and Chief Operating Officer of San Miguel Corporation, has said that they are willing to sell their 49% stake in Philippine Airlines in order to make a counter bid for their proposed airport once it is subjected to a Swiss Challenge. Reason for this is the directive of the Philippine Department of Transportation and Communications which disqualifies conglomerates and companies which have ownership interests in airlines from bidding for the construction, operations, and management of a proposed airport.

To translate: it seems that the Priority Development Assistance Fund (pork barrel) has little to no connection with the private funding for the upcoming airport. Yes, this airport will eventually replace NAIA, and I hope there will be room for further expansions when warranted, given that air travel is becoming more popular in Asia and the Philippines receives most of its foreign tourists by air.

Thanks for your responses certainly provides some clarity as to whom would be funding this proposal.
I agree the current MNL is well over due for replacement & during any travel I'll avoid at all costs regardless on the savings.
On the other hand I'm happy to see T3 is finally being put to better use with full fare carriers moving in.

If this new airport goes as planned it would look like Paris CDG in a tropical climate.

Not to worry. I can translate Filipino statements to English in a flash, making the conversation flow smoothly.

And yes, T3 will finally become the international terminal it was originally destined to be, with six carriers operating from it from 1 August:

- All Nippon Airways
- Cathay Pacific
- Delta
- Emirates
- KLM
- Singapore Airlines

Hopefully, it will help ease congestion at T1 and allow more carriers to operate from it over time.

That's just an immediate solution to the current situation while awaiting for the relocation plan.

I think we should eliminate the law that prevents Philippine Airlines from building its own airport terminal.

After all, SMC is doing the government a favor.........so why is it against the Philippine law for PAL/SMC to build and operate their own airport?

CAAP Deputy Director General John Andrews on Tuesday, May 20, shows an aerial photo detailing the proposed additional 'parallel' runways at NAIA in Parañaque City, the construction of which will start next month. The new runways are expected to ease congestion during multiple flight arrivals and takeoffs. Ariel Fernandez - GMA

John Andrews is a retired airline pilot captain right? I guess if it is a safety concern, it will raise flag on him since he knew it will be a safety concern. The Philippine aviation cannot afford to risk it especially cat 1 is still under his wings and that I see that the Philippines is on a watch list for errors when it comes to these having to recently earned its cat 1 status from FAA. Hopefully this would address the issues there in NAIA. It should not take very long to have these completed in time for another peak season. Narrow bodied aircrafts are the ones extensively being used in domestic and regional operations. I wonder if A321 would be able to take off and land here? I imagine it can considering a light A330 are able to take off and land in the shorter/secondary runway that's perpendicular to the main runway.
