NAIA’s New Airline Terminal Assignment Everyone Needs To Know About

Are you looking forward to a trip later this year? Are you ready and do you feel the excitement? Before you jump into those, make sure that you know where to go because this year, there will be changes in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and its designations. Yes, you read that right. There will be new airline terminal designations so everyone needs to be familiar about it.

The changes would take into effect starting the 31st of August, 2018. They posted a video with the goal of informing all Filipinos who are traveling later this year. Although in the video and the advisory, it is yet to be clear whether this list is final or not, you will be notified and of course updated for the final list; we don’t want to keep it confusing, of course.

  • Etihad Airways
  • Japan Airlines

Terminal 4 would be the terminal who’d carry other domestic flights except for CebuPac and PAL; which are of course already covered by NAIA Terminal 2.

Important reminders:

  • Always contact your airlines prior the date of your departure to be sure. We can never ever tell Manila traffic; it’s better to be safe than sorry.
  • Make sure that you know which airlines you’re riding for you not to be lost.
  • If it’s your first time riding an airplane, do your research. Ask people, ask friends on where to go and what to do.
