New NAIA Terminal Assignments Not Yet Final, Says DOTr
The Department of Transportation has posted an announcement about the supposed reassignments.
(SPOT.ph) You may have caught wind of the reports regarding airline-terminal reassignments at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, which have been said to be taking effect by August 31, 2018. But you might want to check directly with your airline, instead—the Department of Transportation denies any reports regarding airline-terminal relocations that are currently circulating online or in traditional media, and adds that no airline reassignment has been officially finalized.
In an advisory released on the Department of Transportation (DOTr)'s Facebook page on June 4, Manila International Airport Authority general manager Ed Monreal confirms that there are plans to relocate some airlines, and that possible terminal reassignments have been discussed with the airline companies in question. However, he reiterates the fact that no definitive decision has been made regarding these plans.
Besides the reported August 31 date of effectivity, various media outlets have claimed the following changes in past reports: Only five airlines will be allowed to use Terminal 1, the airline Cebu Pacific will have all its flights transferred to Terminal 2 (previously only catering to Philippine Airlines flights), and that majority of the airlines will be relocated to Terminal 3. Just keep in mind that the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) has yet to confirm these claims—the DOTr has assured the public that once a decision has been made regarding the airline-terminal relocations, an official advisory will be released.
