Friday, June 06, 2014

Terminal 3 is in the final phase of its own renovations to complete the terminal for maximum occupancy. According to Jose Angel Honrado, NAIA General Manager, the installation of closed circuit television cameras and other systems to improve the airport will be completed next month. He also noted that the air conditioning issue in Terminal 1 has been addressed.

According to NAIA 3 manager Octavio Lina, Delta Airlines will be the first to transfer to Terminal 3 on August 1, with four daily flights.KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Emirates, Singapore Air and Cathay Pacific will also be transferring to Terminal 3 by the middle to end of August.KLM will have two daily flights and Emirates will have 6 daily flights. Singapore Air will have 8 daily flights, while Cathay Pacific will have 10 daily flights.Lina added that the systems for check-in counters and baggage handling are currently being finished at Terminal 3.Around 300 closed circuit TV (CCTV) cameras are being installed inside and outside NAIA 3 and will be operational by August.

Airlines to Include NAIA Terminal Fees in Prices

http://www.rappler.com/nation/60266-naia-terminal-fees

Published 12:30 PM, Jun 11, 2014

MANILA, Philippines – You will no longer have to line up to pay for terminal fees at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).But that's not because the P550 (about $12) charge will go away. Starting October 2014, the price will be included in your airline ticket whether you purchased it online or through ticketing offices and travel agents.In a statement on Wednesday, June 11, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) announced it "has recently concluded talks with international air carrier representatives to incorporate the international passenger service charge (IPSC), commonly referred to as terminal fees, in the price of airline tickets."The move is meant to reduce queuing time at the airport and to address the congestion problem for departing passengers. Terminal fee counters will be removed.“We congratulate MIAA on this new policy. It improves traveling convenience and efficiency at NAIA by removing a whole process which unnecessarily adds to the passengers’ processing time, requiring them to line up when payment can be done ahead of time,” said Transportation Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya.The move puts the Philippines on the level of countries that heed international airport standards and practices. Among ASEAN countries, only the Philippines collects terminal fees at the airport.

That would definitely bring a huge improvement on how MNL deals with departing passengers... less lines mean more efficiency for travelers and less opportunities for public officials to cash in extra from passengers. And by the way, it will mean much shorter walk times for airport door to gate, making the traveling experience more worthwhile.

I am going to transit in Manila this Oct for like 18 hours. Since this is a long layover, I will probably go out and visit Manila. Do I have to pay the terminal fee if I am a transit passenger?

Thanks!

Would You Like to Sleep in NAIA Terminal 1?

https://ph.news.yahoo.com/would-you-...html?.tsrc=sun

By Kim Arveen Patria | Yahoo Southeast Asia Newsroom – Thu, Jun 19, 2014

It may have been tagged the worst airport in the world for three years in a row, but did you know that the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 offers rooms where you can spend the night?“The airport features a day room to service the needs of passengers on long stopovers during flights connecting through Manila,” the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said in its website.For now only 12 air-conditioned rooms are available for $19 (around P850) a night. The 9-square meter rooms, located on terminal building’s fourth floor, have private comfort rooms and showers.The MIAA added that new day rooms are currently being constructed at the view deck level. These new rooms will feature “wider spaces for a more relaxing stay,” the agency said on its website.

NAIA International Flights Terminal Fee to be Included in Airline Tickets Starting October 2014

http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/business/...ickets-october

MANILA, Philippines - The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) on Tuesday signed a memorandum of agreement with international air carrier representatives for the integration of the airport terminal fee in the price of airline tickets.MIAA general manager Jose Angel Honrado and representatives from 34 foreign and local airlines signed the agreement at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3.Under the agreement, the P550 terminal fee for departing passengers for international flights will be included in the airline ticket starting October 1, 2014.Honrado said the agreement is a milestone for the MIAA and is expected to reduce the queuing time for departing international passengers.

After check-in, passengers can directly go to the immigration counters."Less queuing is less stress for our passengers," Honrado aid.Ramon Ang, president of Philippine Airlines, said he sees no problem with the integration of the terminal fees in airline tickets.While the integration program will begin in October 2014, there is a one-year transition period that will end in September 2015. Full implementation of the policy will be in October 2015.MIAA collects a P550 terminal fee for the maintenance of the airport (P390) and aviation security (P60), while P100 goes to the national government.The terminal fee for domestic flights has already been incorporated in airline tickets since August 2012. - Report from Raoul Esperas

Sangley chosen as site of new airport

It’s final. The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) has chosen Sangley Point in Cavite City as the location of the new airport, virtually shelving a similar proposal to build on reclaimed land in Manila Bay.

Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya said the DOTC will adopt the recommendation of the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to build Manila’s next international gateway in Cavite. The announcement was made after San Miguel Corporation (SMC) failed to formally present its plan to build a $10-billion airport at Manila Bay.

“Our Planning Department requested SMC for a full and proper presentation of their proposal. Our two requests were either turned down or ignored. We won’t be insisting for the third time,” Abaya told the Manila Bulletin.

Earlier, businessman Ramon Ang personally presented SMC’s plan to construct a modern airport along Manila Bay in a meeting with President Aquino last May. SMC’s proposed four-runway hub was designed to either complement or replace the aging Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

“We weren’t sure why there is hesitation,” Abaya added. “They (SMC) have their own reasons and we don’t need to find out. So in the absence (of the SMC proposal), we will just pursue Sangley.”

The Cabinet official disclosed that the JICA site-selection study for the new airport in Manila had also considered Manila Bay but Sangley Point emerged as the best choice among seven locations.

“If you look at the JICA study, Manila Bay was also studied. Among seven locations, Sangley ranked on top after all factors were considered,” he said.

Although JICA is already working on the feasibility study of constructing a new airport in Sangley Point, Abaya clarified that the project is still subject to the approval of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Board, which is chaired by the President.

“We are pursuing Sangley (as the location). (JICA) will finish the feasibility study and (DOTC) will eventually get NEDA Board approval,” the official said.

Abaya also said DOTC is studying the appropriate funding structure for the project considering the huge cost of building a new international airport.

“Considering the huge cost, it is possible that the General Appropriations Act (GAA), Official Development Assistance (ODA), or Public-Private Partnership (PPP) will all have a component (to fund),” he said. The SMC airport will cost $10 billion and the same cost is estimated for the airport to be constructed in Sangley Point.

The NEDA Board will also decide on the fate of NAIA once the new airport is built. DOTC expects NAIA to hit its maximum capacity between 2018 or 2020.

According to a 2011 JICA study, annual passenger forecasts for the Greater Capital Region will rise from 49.8 million in 2020 to 75 million in 2030, shooting up to 106.7 million in 2040. In 2012, total traffic recorded in the region was already at 31.879 million. The greater capital region covers the National Capital Region and Regions 3 and 4A.

To meet the expected volumes, the DOTC has identified two viable options. Both will involve the expansion of Clark International Airport (CIA) in Pampanga, and the development of a new international airport in Manila.

Meth Found Inside Teddy Bear in NAIA

http://www.rappler.com/nation/62473-...eddy-bear-naia

Published 6:53 PM, Jul 05, 2014

MANILA, Philippines – Inspectors at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) found 200 tablets of illegal drugs in a teddy bear inside a package bound to South Africa.The drugs spilled out of the stuffed toy while the package was manually inspected by customs authorities following the X-ray machine scan."Initial test showed it is positive of methamphetamine (shabu)," said Joel Pilawin, officer-in-charge of the airport's Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service (CIIS).

"This is the first time a teddy bear is used [in smuggling drugs]," Pilawin added, saying that the drugs were concealed in the toy's feet, hands, and head.The package was headed to South Africa and was supposedly sent via LBC by a foreigner identified as Jason Thomas, said the CIIS.The seized illegal drugs have been turned over to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).Methamphetamine, locally known as shabu in the Philippines, is a white crystalline drug. Banned in the country, it is either snorted, smoked, or injected into the bloodstream.

New X-ray Machines Boost NAIA Revenue Collections

http://www.rappler.com/business/6256...t-naia-revenue

Published 12:08 PM, Jul 07, 2014

MANILA, Philippines – The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) saw an increase in duties and taxes collected from airline passengers in May to June, thanks to the new x-ray machines purchased by the Bureau of Customs (BOC).The x-ray machines beefed up BOC's capability to detect highly taxable items such as jewelry, luxury watches, designer bags, undeclared foreign currencies, and even prohibited drugs.BOC-NAIA alone collected revenues of P972,977.50 ($22,369.87*) in May to June, representing duties and taxes paid by airline passengers on goods detected in their luggage by x-ray, BOC x-ray inspection project officer-in-charge Julito Doria noted.In May, 4 fixed-baggage Nutech x-ray machines were deployed in NAIA Terminals 1, 2 and 3 – the first tranche of 8 machines purchased by the BOC early this year.

Two x-ray machines were set up at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, and one each at the Clark International Airport in Pampanga and the Kalibo International Airport in Aklan.BOC allocated about P145 million ($3.33 million) for the purchase of the x-ray machines.BOC plans to procure additional machines this year, apart from at least 6 hand-held x-ray units and 4 mobile x-ray machines. These will be deployed in international airports in the country, including Laoag and Davao.The BOC will also install closed-circuit television systems (CCTV) in NAIA. The acquisition of CCTVs is expected to be completed next year.“The additional x-ray machines will allow us to better detect contraband goods being smuggled in by airline passengers, rather than just relying on profiling techniques. It will allow us to release luggage faster and improve the traveling experience for passengers,” Doria added.Improving customs processes at the country’s airports is a priority project of Customs Commissioner John Sevilla.

NAIA-OTS Clamps Down on Electronic Gadgets

http://www.interaksyon.com/article/9...tronic-gadgets

By: Eric Apolonio, InterAksyon.com
July 11, 2014 1:38 AM

MANILA - The Office for Transportation Security (OTS) implemented starting Thursday afternoon the “switch on” protocol for electronic gadgets brought along by departing passengers at all Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminals regardless of destinations.OTS requires departing passengers to switch on their gadgets after coming out from the X-ray machines to determine if there are working normally, otherwise these will be brought back to the X-ray machine several times.If the gadgets of the passengers bound for United States fail to work, the item will be confiscated and the bearer subjected to questioning by airport security officials.

Ninoh Buhay, OTS shift supervisor at NAIA Terminal 1, said verbal instructions were handed down from the head office to adopt the procedure effective immediately.Buhay added that, prior to the instructions, OTS staff have been screening for electronic devices by subjecting them to x-ray and scanning.Philippine Airlines is the only carrier that has direct flights to the United States and Hawaii.Delta Air, Cathay Pacific and China Airlines all fly to the US.However, Delta makes stopovers at Narita and Nagoya in Japan, while Cathay Pacific transits through Hong Kong, and China Airlines in Taipei, before proceeding to various cities in the United States.NAIA Terminal 2 Manager Cecilio Bobila said that tight security procedures are being implemented there, and all kinds of electronic devices will have to pass the X-ray procedures.
