I hope when this terminal opens I will have a chance to use this when i visit Asia.
you know what? its nice... i like the light thingy.... especially during night time.... wow... just cant wait till naia 3 opens...whoa!

Terminal 1 is pretty old and is my least favorite of all the three! Also, the waiting area infront of the arrivals terminal is very third world!

Terminal 2 looks better but it's too small!

Terminal 3 is the best looking one but it's not yet operational!

what do mean cannot use glas. what is T2 all about ? it´s a massive glas structure. and it makes it very nice and unique.

I agree with you Richard. They could of use all see glass panels for atleast the whole front of the terminal. KLIA and singapore has the same weather temperature s the Philippines. And yes, definitely T2 is all see through glass and it didn't have any problem with the cooling system it seems like when I happened to be there on summer time in the Philippines. I don't know why ncbmandy keeps on claiming that the summer heat is one of the factors for not using all see through outside glass paneling on almost entire structure.
(no offense mandy, I do not mean that as an attack, it's just an honest opinion)

I think the glass building is not a problem in the world of high technology... for example
New Bangkok airport , roofs and most of major structures are built from steel and glass..

the glass has special chemical that only the light get through but the heat will be blocked.... and the cooling system is floor cooling system( something like that)

so it isn't a problem..

Philippine police detained a 71-year-old Japanese man at Manila Airport on Friday after he said he was carrying two bombs.

"He is being held for a bad joke," said Rolando Estabillo, a spokesman for Philippine Airlines. "I am not sure whether police will set him free or file charges against him for some security violations."

Signs at Manila's international and domestic airports warn passengers not to make jokes about carrying explosives.

Airline and security officials said Yasou Ishii was being frisked by guards when he was overheard saying he had two bombs. His luggage was searched but police found no explosives.

Estabillo said the Philippine Airlines flight left on time for Tokyo's Narita Airport on Friday afternoon without the man.

"We don't tolerate any jokes," said airport police officer Fely Parariza

"He should be fine heavily or jailed for his remarks!!! What a DUMB ASS!!!!!!!!

2006 Update

System 21 Transit



http://www.firstasiafuel.com/Page.asp?id=63
Negotiations with the Philippine government authorities has resulted in preliminary approval, reflected in a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to install System 21 at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Dispute over ownership of a new terminal at the airport, which is not related to System 21, has caused a delay in its installation.

System 21 Transit



System 21 Transit

Marketing Overview

First Asia has been licensed by an affiliated company to represent and sell a new urban transit technology in Asia. The Technology was developed by Lockheed Martin and now owned by FUTREX, Inc.

This technology, known as System 21, allows simultaneous 2-way traffic on a single elevated beam. Now in final development stages, the market for the technology in Asia is very large.

The estimated capital spending on of urban transit installations is between $50 and 150 billion in the next 20 years. There are 150 cities in Asia with populations exceeding 1 million of which only about 40 have transit systems.

Cost Advantages

There are three compelling advantages of System 21.

Construction Cost – $25 million/mile instead of $50-100 + for existing technology;

Construction Time – 18-24 months due to prefabrication of all components, rather than 36-48+ for existing systems;

Urban Friendly – A tight (street corner) turning radius and portability – installation can be disassembled and moved to another site to assist urban planning.

Business Model

Under First Asia’s license it will receive a license fee of $1 million for each mile of S21 completed. First Asia’s affiliates have developed significant interest in S21 even though the final prototype is not completed.

In the Philippines, a major construction company bought exclusive national rights to the Technology and signed an MOU with the government owned Ninoy Aquino International Airport to connect its old and new terminals. This project has been interrupted and delayed by a dispute over ownership of the new Terminal.

In Indonesia a consortium of large private and government-owned construction, engineering and transportation companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding to acquire the Technology and build a new 60- kilometer east-west system through central Jakarta. This installation has been delayed by lack of funding.

Market In Asia

The World Bank considers urban congestion to be one of Asia’ most pressing problems. Relentless rural to urban migration will raise the rural-urban ratio from 65-35 to 55-45 by 2015 creating 500 million new urban dwellers - the equivalent of 50 New York cities.

Estimation of the urban transit market in Asia range from $50 billion – 150 billion – often based on 10-20 miles on average for each of the 150 cities with 1 million + inhabitants.

These estimates cannot be verified, although recent approved systems in India, China and South Korea may indicate a trend. The India installation in Delhi is over 100 miles in track, the Chinese in Shanghai is over 125 miles and in South Korea, over 300 miles of new transit installation have been approved by government and await funding.
