The Ninoy Aquino International Airport or NAIA, (IATA: MNL, ICAO: RPLL) is the airport serving the general area of Manila and its surrounding metropolitan area. Located along the border between Pasay City and Parañaque City, about seven kilometers south of Manila proper, and southwest of Makati City, NAIA is the main international gateway for travelers to the Philippines and is the hub for all Philippine airlines. It is managed by the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), a branch of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC).

Officially, NAIA is the only airport serving the Manila area. However, in practice, both NAIA and Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) in Angeles City, Pampanga serve the Manila area, with DMIA catering mostly to low-cost carriers that avail of the lower landing fees than those in NAIA. In the long term, DMIA is set to replace NAIA as the primary airport of the Philippines.

In 2006, the airport handled 17.7 million passengers. This showed an 8.9% growth in passenger numbers from the 2005 figures of 16,193,611 and placed the airport as the 72nd busiest airport worldwide in terms of passenger traffic.

In 2007, the airport handled 21,261,133 passengers. This was a 20.4% growth in passenger numbers compared to 2006, placing the airport 59th worldwide in terms of passenger traffic.

how about EVA air?
Oops! Forgot that one! Yeah, EVA Air also flies to MNL. :)

Except for KLM and Lufthansa, I want more EU carriers to fly to MNL. We used to have British Airways, Air France, Alitalia, Swissair, Iberia, Sabena and SAS Scandinavia flying in from their hubs in Europe. I'd like to see Virgin Airways and Aeroflot someday.

As of now Northwest Airlines is the only North American carrier with flights originating in the US (via their Asian hubs at NRT, KIX and NGO). Former North American carriers that serve MNL were United Airlines, Pan-Am Airlines, TWA and Canadian Airlines. Continental Airlines also fly to MNL but it's via their Pacific routes from GUM (Guam) and uses Continental's Air Micronesia brand.

I'm really surprised that Garuda don't fly to Manila! That's crazy. That's like Air New Zealand not flying to Sydney!
Well, technically, PAL's Manila-Jakarta flight via Singapore is codeshared with Garuda. Its at least on a widebody A330, although its not direct.

I just notice this: If you are going to look at the ceiling of this part of the naia-terminal 3 you will notice that there is no lamp/light attach to the ceiling because it uses the natural light coming from the sun during daylight (part of the roof is made of glass i think to let the light of the sun lit the entire area) and once the evening comes the light on the V-shape beams open (see last photo) and it literally gives light to the ceiling and not the floor and this actually gives a relaxing and tranquil atmosphere to the building and i like that it makes me feel like im in my living room. I hope when this terminal opens I will have a chance to use this when i visit Asia.

Thanks for the infos. No latin american and african airlines flying to manille.
Sorry....not at this time. But hopefully air carriers from Africa and Latin America will discover this little-known corner of the world and start services from Manila to their hometown hubs. :)
