However, they put me in a "transit" area, which basically had nothing besides some chairs, and only let me go 30 minutes prior to my 2nd flight. I felt like a criminal hold in jail because there was nothing to do there. I can't really understand this policy as if a transit passenger stay airside, that passenger is very likely to spend money on foods, drinks, etc.
I wasted 11.5hrs in the empty transit area and promise to myself not to transit in the Philippines again.
Corruption and lack of accountability from the people managing the airport has caused the whole of NAIA to be tagged as one of the worst and the worst in the world. Even Terminal 3, which was supposed to be the pride of the airport, after nearly 2 decades, it still not fully operational.

Pakistan airport replaces NAIA-1 as 'world's worst'

The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is no longer the world's worst. According to travel website The Guide to Sleeping in Airports, the infamous title now belongs to Pakistan's ISB Airport, which some travelers likened to a central prison. -- ANC Dateline Philippines, October 17, 2014

http://globalnation.inquirer.net/114...n-naia-tarmac/

1:27 PM | Friday, November 7th, 2014

MANILA, Philippines—Airport police apprehended a man who sneaked into the ramp area of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport’s (Naia) Terminal 1 and was found running toward an aircraft.The Media Affairs Division of the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said the man, who identified himself as Don Alfredo Gutierrez, 25, was caught on the ramp area by airport personnel at 7:20 a.m. on Friday.In a statement, the MIAA said it is investigating how the man managed to get in the tarmac of Terminal 1.“He is now being interrogated by the terminal security officers,” said the MIAA in a statement.The MIAA said the man, who appeared to be deranged, was giving investigators incoherent answers and they were having a hard time obtaining information from him.It is not clear as of 10 a.m. how the man managed to gain entry to the ramp, a highly restricted area.In April, a Somali teenager flew from California to Hawaii stowed away on the planes wheel well.

Customs Thwarts Attempt to Sneak in P28-M in Postal Money Order Via Mail Parcel

http://news.pia.gov.ph/article/view/...ia-mail-parcel

November 06, 2014

MANILA, Nov 6 -- Bureau of Customs (BOC) officials at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) have seized a mail parcel from Africa which was declared as ‘letters and cards’ but actually contained over 600 pieces of United States Postal Money Order amounting to around P28-Million.In a statement yesterday, the Department of Finance said customs officers opened a mail parcel containing 651 pieces of US postal money orders with a total value of US$631,470 that was mailed via Fedex courier delivery service last October 22, 2014 from Togo, a country located in West Africa.

The parcel arrived in the country last November 3, 2014 and was consigned to a certain John Secada Matters whose address was listed at Unit 710 Ferrous Bel Air Tower, 30 Polaris Street, Makati City. Each of the 651 pieces of postal money order has the same US$970 value and doesn’t bear any name or address.The Customs Intelligence Group placed the shipment under an Alert Order after receiving a tip from French Customs officials who inspected the package upon its arrival in France en route to the Philippines. Because the package is not addressed to a French national, the French Customs allowed the package to travel to the Philippines but not before alerting the BOC-NAIA, providing the air flight number and the Air Bill reference so the parcel can be intercepted upon arrival.

ISB is currently being replaced by a facility expected to open April 2015. I was shock to see NAIA on that list. It's unfortunate though it can be fixed.

All right... from today, you can also discuss developments found at Clark International Airport in this thread since it is part of the Mega Manila airport network. I know the distance of CRK can be far, but, it is integral to keeping airlines to and from Manila moving.

Caesars Palace wants to help redesign NAIA
Quote:
MANILA, Philippines - US casino giant Caesars Palace wants to build a $1.5-billion integrated entertainment center on a 30-hectare idle government property next to Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2.

And because of the project's proximity to NAIA, Caesars is offering to help redesign the country's main gateway.

In a statement, Caesars president for international development Steven Tight said the company is bringing in foreign experts to advise on the redesign of the NAIA and on a light railway transit to connect NAIA terminals 1 and 2.

So how far along are the plans on turning Cavite's Sangley Point airport into a replacement for the existing NAIA airport? Are they still just talking about it?

NAIA Gets State of the Art Navigational System

http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/business/...raffic-control

Posted at 01/20/2015 2:49 PM | Updated as of 01/20/2015 6:43 PM

MANILA (UPDATE) – The air traffic management control system at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has finally gotten a much-needed upgrade.The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) inaugurated on Tuesday the state of the art Eurocat 200 air traffic and navigational system. This upgrades the outdated system that has been in place since 1996.The P160-million system upgrade features a computerized air traffic control and management solution that control en route, over flights, arriving, and departing air traffic from as far as 250 nautical miles.CAAP director general William Hotchkiss said the new state of the art technology will enable the Philippines to detect any entry of commercial or military flights into Philippine airspace.He said the Eurocat navigational equipment features a more efficient equipment which can monitor all types of aircraft, either civilian or military.

“Before the upgrade, flights at the NAIA specially during rainy seasons are affected by continues outage resulting to flights cancellation or diversion of flights as the ageing system had outlived its life span for over 19 years and parts are already obsolete and unavailable for replacement,” CAAP said.The project, which was developed in partnership with Thales Australia and Pacific Hemisphere Development, was inaugurated and blessed at the airways facilities complex at CAAP central office in Old MIAA Road Pasay City.Thales Australia Limited Philippine branch manager Raymond Lions said the Eurocat 200 passed the International Civil Aviation Organization standards to guarantee safety in airspace and avoid mid-air collisions.CAAP said the improvement is essential to NAIA operations because the P13-billion next-generation satellite-based Communications, Navigation, Surveillance / Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) project that was signed during the previous administration “was delayed and would not be in place until the end of 2016.”“The absence of a ready substitute is a cause for worry for CAAP because if the Eurocat bogs down, the operational load of air traffic are affected and flights disruptions have an effect on the Philippine airspace,” the agency said

Updated January 14, 2015 - 12:00pm

That would be a very good question. I will find them when I have the time... it isn't that easy to get them.

looking at the statsitics. you would know that the airport is already at full capacity. from 2012s 7.9% increase, it went down to 3.1 and 3.4 increase for 2013, 2014. considering 2013 and 2014 Philippines, and on which Manila is a major contributor, posted a high GDP growth. MIAAs restriction for new flights does stalled the growth of the airport.

Manila needs to expand NAIA immediately or build that new airport. CRK passenger traffic decreases annually since its too far to serve manila.

that bottleneck might lead to problems in the expansion/promotion of tourism in the Philippines as manila is a major gateway.

How does the distance from Central Manila to Clark Airport compare to the distance from Central Beijing to its new Daxing Airport?

Love how everyone just ignored this question, as if it should have been self-evident to me.
