NAIA T3 - set to open MARCH 2007!!!

the NEW ninoy aquino international airport - MANILA, PHILIPPINES





DEPARTURE HALL



The third, much larger terminal, NAIA-3,The modern US$640 million, 189,000 square meter facility was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) to have a capacity of 13 million passengers per year.

A 4-level shopping mall connects the terminal and parking buildings. The parking building has a capacity of 2,000 cars while the outdoor parking area has a capacity of 1,200 cars. The terminal is capable of servicing 33,000 passengers daily at peak or 6,000 passengers per hour.

The terminal is currently slated to open at the earliest in mid-2007, when it will take over all of the operations of Terminal 1 and the Manila Domestic Passenger Terminal. It has 28 airbridges, 20 contact and 8 non-contact, and can service 28 aircraft all at once.

The terminal was completed in 1981 and had a size of 67,000 square meters with a design capacity of 4.5 million passengers per year.

NAIA terminal 2: "Centennial Terminal"





The second terminal, NAIA-2, located at the Old MIA Road and was finished in 1998 and began operations in 1999. It has a capacity of 2.5 million passengers per year in its international wing and 5 million in its domestic wing, which later will expand to nine million passengers yearly. Terminal 2 is the home of Philippine Airlines and is used for both its domestic and international flights.

This terminal is used by Philippine Airlines and its sister company Air Philippines It is divided into 2 wings the North Wing which handles international flights and the South Wing which handles domestic flights. It currently has 12 airbridges.

The need for two more terminals was proposed by a Master Plan Review of the Ninoy Aquino International Airpot that was undertaken in 1989 by Aéroports de Paris (ADP), which was facilitated through a grant from the French Government. The review cost 2.9 million French francs and was submitted to the Philippine Government for evaluation in 1990.[1]

NAIA Terminal 3 is already 3 years old and it's still not operational. The terminal looks nice but NO WAY it can compete with Chep Lap Kok or Incheon

I've used KLIA before. The design is quite good and the use of wood in the departures hall ceiling is quite unique. However, I found it to be a bit on the dark side since there aren't too many skylights.

Yes KLIA is a nice airport but it lacks the size of Chek Lap Kok.

Yes the KLIA has an impressive design especially it's elements.

I think the reason why Chek Lap Kok is larger is because HK is a major air hub in Asia and the airport does get alot of traffic.

Size has little to do with how good an airport is. Although some rankings are based on passenger load, a good airport can be small, and a large airport can be bad. If I can clear immigration, get my bags, and get to the city quickly, then it's a good airport. How many passengers it handles a year is irrelevant.

Wasn't there a lot of controversy with sending international flights to Malpensa from the Linate airport?

Milan Linate airport (5 km from Milan)was/is used only for european and domestic flights while Malpensa (40 km) mainly for intercontinental flights,there is also a third airport,Orio al Serio (40 km),which is mainly used for low cost flights but also by Alitalia for European and domestic destinations
When new Malpensa terminal 1 (the old terminal was named terminal2 now used mainly for charter and low cost services)opened in 1998,Alitalia choosed it as its main hub and a lot of european carriers were forced to transfer part of their services to the new Malpensa Terminal.
However Alitalia decided to maintain several intercontinental services both from Rome and Milan,such as Newark,New York JFK,Toronto,Boston,Caracas,Buenos Aires,Tokyo and the remainder only from Milan.
Today only British Airways,Iberia,Air France,Lufthansa,KLM,SAS,Austrian,Olympic,Easyjet,TAP operate from both Malpensa and Linate together with Alitalia and the other italian domestic companies.

So Singapore gets the title again. Congratulations. I agree that SG has one of the best airports in the world but I still prefer HK's. Though the new terminal being built in Changi is impressive

I will fly to Hong Kong tomorrow and let`s see...

I have been to hundreds of airports worldwide but still nothing can beat Kuala Lumpur International Airport ! Impressive design, great and cheap food and service, excellent access to the city by KLIA Ekspres, the friendliest airport staff on the planet... and the list goes on..

The only rival for Kuala Lumpur is Seoul Incheon Airport. Beautiful design, smooth departing procedure, etc.

New Bangkok international airport architecture/design can match also.

We all have our opinions. Though I've been to KL airport several times since I often fly to Malaysia to visit some of my relatives.

But HK offers the same thing.

Design? Yes it's well designed. Sir Norman Foster designed this airport

Food and Service? Yes they have some variety both outside and inside the the terminals. I don't have a problem with the service at all.

Access? The Airport Express will take you to Central less than 30 mins. Other than that, there are also buses that take you from the airport to the city.
