It is very hard to understand why the 3rd Terminal is not in use yet after being in this state for several years. My first time in Manila was in 2004, and the situation was already like this.

As an impatient westerner I have to ask this: have the talks resulted in anything concrete yet? Can we see the last 2% or so of construction finished in 2008-2009 so that the Terminal can open up for business in 2009-2010? I am sure that the Metro Manila area needs the improvements in Airport facilities fast. Especially the domestic terminal needs a move to (parts of) the current international terminals 1 and/or 2. Anyone with some answers out there?

The pics of the Makati Skyline are impressive though. Fortunately there are many developments going on in the Philippines!

Why is Ferrarilover complementing his own post on pics about NAIA3 and reposted again? It's not even open yet and has no certainty as to whether it will ever open to the public.

Thanks for your good observation on our Makati skyline. We also have the new Commercial district called Bonifacio Global city, Ortigas Center, Rockwell, Eastwood, Alabang business district. All the skylines I mentioned here are mushrooming at a very fast pace.

Regarding our New NAIA3 Terminal, we hope and pray before the end of 2009
soon it will be opened to the millions and millions of travellers. The government is making it sure the integrity of the Structure is at its best otherwise, they don't want to happen any tragic incident sucha as roof collapsing and other incident.

Thank you again my foreign friend for admiring and sharing your comments here:

Nope not necessarily. NWA has NWA Airlink, UA has United express, American Airlines has American Eagle to serve other short regional routes, they are independently owned regional airlines but still connected or associated to the main carriers, their airfares are no cheaper than a regular service so they are not considered an LCC at all. Southwest Airlines, Frontier (I believe it is), Airtrans, Allegiant air are all LCCs...

Okay, don't get me wrong, it's a nice little airport but I don't think it's an international airport yet. First of all, there is no hall for international departure and arrival where customs and immigration can process all the passengers. Secondly, there is no definite service yet that would cater to international airlines that can fly directly in and out of this little airport. What's up people ?????

It's not an international airport.
The Dept of Transport Commission has classified this as a domestic airport.

But this is classified as an Alternative International Airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (formerly Air Transportation Office).

you're right! Bacolod-Silay International Airport is an Alternative International Airport, in fact there is a connecting flight from Bacolod to Bangkok, and there are plans now for Bacolod-Hong Kong and Bacolod-Seoul flights due to a 122% increase of foreign tourist arrivals in Bacolod and the Province of Negros Occidental.

DOTC reclassifies RP's airports
Butuan Airport Now A Principal Class 1 Category Facility

By Lynda B. Valencia

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MANILA,(PNA) -- Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Secretary Leandro R. Mendoza ordered recently the reclassification of airports to improve the management of the nautical airport system as well as upgrade, modernize and enhance the civil aviation safety in the Philippines.

Mendoza said the new classification of airports is pursuant to the Philippine Transport Strategic Study and the Civil Aviation Master Plan developed in 1992, identifying the need to revise the country’s airport classification.

The need for classification was also reiterated in the recent Master Plan Study on the Strategy for the Improvement of National Airports in the Philippines conducted by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

Under the issued Department Order No. 2008-06, the criteria that shall be considered in the reclassification of airports are: simplicity, transparency, degree of rigidity, ease of up-date, linkage with facility planning, linkage with policy formulation, and linkage with regulatory requirements.

The Air Transportation Office (ATO), which was renamed Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) by virtue of Republic Act No. 9497, otherwise known as CAAP Act of 2008, will initiate the up-dating of classification of national airports in the Philippines.

Updating of the reclassification will be done every three years or as the need arises.

Based on the criteria, the new classification are as follows:

International airports – These are airports with border control facility used for international flights such as Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA), Davao International Airport (DIA), Zamboanga, Puerto Princesa, General Santos, Laoag, Clark, Subic and Kalibo.

Principal airports – These are airports used for domestic scheduled flights. These are classified into Class 1 which are used for jet services (jet aircraft including B737, A320, DC9 or greater, which has equal to or more than 100-seats capacity) and Class 2 which are used for prop services (prop aircraft of jet aircraft smaller than those indicated in Class 1, which has equal to more than 19-seat capacity).

Fifteen airports under Principal Class 1 classification are the Bacolod, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro, Tacloban, Tagbilaran, Dumaguete, Butuan, Legazpi, Cotabato, Roxas, Dipolog, Naga, San Jose, Tuguegarao, and Pagadian.

For Principal Class 2 classification, there are 19 airports and these are the Caticlan, Busuanga, Basco, Masbate, Baguio, Virac, Catarman, Surigao, Calbayog, Jolo, Tandag, Camiguin, Sanga-Sanga, Siargao, Cuyo, Romblon, Marinduque, Antique and Ormoc.

Community airports – Used for general aviation that includes 40 airports such as Plaridel, Cauayan, Palanan, Lubang, Vigan, San Fernando, Iba, Bagabag, Lingayen, Jomalig, Guiuan, Maburao, Baler, Iligan, Hilonogs, Allah Valley, Siquijor, Daet, Ipil, Bulan, Sorsogon, Liloy, Cagayan de Sulu, Rosales, Alabat, Bantayan, Biliran, Bislig, Borongan, Calapan, Catbalogan, Itbayat, Maasin, Malabang, Mati, Ozamis, Pinamalayan, Siocon, Ubay and Wasig.
