Typhoon Ramassun (Glenda) Damages 2 Planes at NAIA

http://www.rappler.com/business/indu...-damage-planes

Published 2:55 PM, Jul 16, 2014

MANILA, Philippines – Even planes are no match to the strong winds of Typhoon Glenda, which damaged two international air carriers parked at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on Wednesday, July 16.The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) did not allow a Singapore Airlines B777-400 and a Malaysian Airlines B-738-800 to fly after the two planes incurred damage Wednesday.The eye of Typhoon Glenda was spotted over Manila Bay at 7 am Wednesday. Metro Manila has been under Public Storm Signal No 3 since Tuesday night, July 15.The Singapore Airlines flight SQ915 was pushed away about 30 feet from where it was anchored on Bay no. 6 despite being tied to a 50-ton tow truck.The leading edge of its left-hand wing was torn, while the engine cover, which collided with the passenger tube, had an 8-inch dent.

The Malaysian Airlines flight MH805, meanwhile, damaged its right-hand fuselage after it smashed on a mobile metal staircase. It was parked in one of NAIA’s remote parking areas.According to Captain Amado Soliman, head of the Air Safety Foundation, the planes were temporarily airborne when strong gusts of winds flew over their wings. These made both planes – which weigh approximately hundreds of tons each – lighter.When Typhoon Glenda passed through NAIA, it had winds of up to 122 km per hour, state weather bureau PAGASA said.Both planes will remain grounded at NAIA awaiting investigation.NAIA suspended operations at 7 am Wednesday, resuming only at 11 am after runways 13-31 and 06-24 were inspected and cleared of debris. (READ: Cancelled flights: Wednesday, July 16)An Eva Air flight BR271 from Taipei was the first flight to land in NAIA at 11:30 amThe halt in operations stranded 302 domestic flights and 93 international flights.

39 Companies Interested in NAIA's CCTV Project

http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/business/...s-cctv-project

Posted at 07/22/2014 2:16 PM | Updated as of 07/22/2014 2:16 PM

MANILA, Philippines - A total of 39 private companies have expressed interested in joining the public bidding for the P486 million closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance system for the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminals 1, 2 and 4.General Vicente Guerzon, Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) senior assistant general manager and head of the bids and awards committee, said 39 companies participated in the pre-bid conference last Friday.

In an interview with ABS-CBN, Guerzon said the interested companies include a telecommunications giant and an Israel-based company with experience in surveillance CCTV installations.Guerzon said the companies have until August 15 to submit their bids. The bids will be opened on the same day.He said the winning bidder will have 240 calendar days to comply and install the 747 CCTV cameras for the NAIA terminals 1, 2 and 4. It will face penalties if the project is delayed.The MIAA was heavily criticized after the Tulfo-Santiago brawl inside the airport, and the killing of a mayor at the arrival area - both incidents were not recorded by the defective CCTV cameras. - Report by Raoul Esperas

http://www.straitstimes.com/news/bus...next-month-201

Published on Jul 24, 2014 12:46 PM
By Raul Dancel, Philippines Correspondent

MANILA - Singapore Airlines (SIA) will transfer its flight operations in the Philippines from the ageing Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 to the more modern Terminal 3 next month.In a statement issued on Thursday, Transportation Secretary Jun Abaya said SIA would relocate to Terminal 3 along with four other major carriers: Cathay Pacific, Delta Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Emirates.The transportation department announced that Terminal 3, after a long-drawn legal row that lasted 17 years, would finally become fully operational by July 31.Before the scheduled transfer to Terminal 3, SIA had been using Terminal 1, which had been ranked by industry groups as the world's worst airport. Last week, a sewer line burst just outside the departure area.

MANILA, Philippines – After 17 years, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) Terminal 3 will become fully operational by July 31, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) said Thursday.“We are extremely pleased to confirm that full airline operations will begin at NAIA Terminal 3 next week. Our gateway airport will now be able to welcome 3.5 million more passengers with modern facilities every year, and Terminal 1 will now be considerably decongested to improve passenger convenience,” DOTC Secretary Jun Abaya said in a statement Thursday.“The Manila International Airport Authority (Miaa) has informed us that Delta Airlines will have its first flight out of Terminal 3 on August 1st, while KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will move within the first week of August. Singapore Airlines, Emirates, and Cathay Pacific will follow suit by the end of next month. These five carriers have the highest volume of international flights coming in and out of Naia, so we look forward to giving them a new home,” he said.

Philippines to Install Hundreds of New Passport Readers

http://www.securitydocumentworld.com...tails/i/11652/

24/07/14

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) in the Philippines is set to install 220 new passport readers at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and other ports of entry.The new ePassport readers will help facilitate the processing of arriving and departing travellers as well as identifying undesirable aliens.BI Commissioner Siegfred Mison was reported in local media as saying: "The 2009 model passport readers that are currently in use are already obsolete because these equipment have a lifespan of only three years.”Mison said that with the acquisition of new passport readers, BI officers will be better equipped in being able to detect alteration, insertion and other signs of counterfeit passports.Along with the passport readers, the BI also ordered 200 workstations and 440 fingerprint scanners.

With Terminal 3 Fully Operational, Manila’s Image Seen to Improve


http://business.inquirer.net/175660/...een-to-improve

By Miguel R. Camus |Philippine Daily Inquirer
4:23 am | Thursday, July 31st, 2014


MANILA, Philippines–An influential European business group welcomed the full operations of the controversial Terminal 3 project in Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport that start Thursday, saying this would bolster tourism and trade, even as it expressed disappointment over the government’s failure to address the “fair compensation” of the facility’s European contractor.The transportation department said the Terminal 3 project would be 100 percent operational starting July 31, after a year-long “completion works” contract with Japan’s Takenaka Corp. was sealed last year.

Naia Terminal 3 had been operating at half its intended capacity since it opened six years ago. Now, it will be able to accommodate the relocation of five international carriers from the congested Terminal 1, where the strain has further increased due to an ongoing rehabilitation program.Henry Schumacher, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) vice president for external affairs, said the move would paint a more favorable picture for travelers, especially those used to the aging Terminal 1.“Tourists and businessmen will get a better impression on arrival compared to Terminal 1,” Schumacher told the Inquirer in a text message Wednesday.The carriers that will move to Terminal 3 are Delta Airlines, KLM Royal, Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Cathay Pacific, the department said. Japan's Air Nippon Airways (ANA) started it's operations at T3 back in 2010 and was the 1st foreign airlines to do so.

Up to 90 minutes travel between 2 terminals??? How far are the terminals and how much traffic is there?

Yes sounds about right, I had to switch from the terminal PR operate to T1 & the short taxi ride should've taken me 5 minutes but in reality was a 30 minute taxi ride.

It all depends on the congestion, especially that taxis and buses go through busy roadways around the airport's perimeter since there is no fast inter-terminal connection within the secured zone. One has to step out of the secure zone to transit between terminals, which is one of the big concerns, especially for business travelers wanting to travel quickly between two different carriers (e.g. Delta and Philippine Airlines). If there is a way to shorten the transit times, there needs to be better traffic control around the perimeter to allow shorter travel times between the three terminals (especially that Terminal 3 is the most isolated of the four current terminals).

The current answer for that is the U/C NAIA Expressway, which will connect Terminals 1 and 2 with Terminal 3, and the 3 terminals with the Metro Manila Skyway (going towards the Makati Central Business District and the southern Luzon provinces) and the reclamation area (where the Las Vegas style casino district and the Mall of Asia is located). Once the NAIA Expressway opens next year, travellers switching between Terminal 3 and Terminals 1 and 2 vice versa won't have to endure the traffic gridlock at the perimeter roads of Manila Airport

Also worth noting would be air traffic control hold up. We held up due to heavy traffic for a good 20 minutes. I know this is common, on my regular to trips to BNE my flights would be in holding patterns on a average 25 - 30 minutes during peak times.

if you look at the current map, that area has a small island. this island is under the protection of the DENR. it is a breeding ground/sanctuary for several exotic wildlife particularly birds.

building the airport there means destroying this habitat. if you see the existing reclaimed area, this is the reason why it was filled only to that point.

I don't understand why there is not a dedicated road for free shuttle buses, or even better some kind of monorail, around the airport's perimeter. I realize it's a poor country, but this is just kind of ridiculous.
