Manila in focus

Premium Analysis

The Philippines’ main gateway, Manila Ninoy Aquino International

Airport, is still without its new Terminal 3 – a facility that was to

provide a new home for Philippine Airlines and the much-needed capacity to expand

air services to/from the capital. Despite the Government’s intention to

open the terminal in Mar-07 (operating under the Manila International Airport

Authority), its opening has once again been postponed indefinitely, due to earthquake

reinforcement structural defects. The terminal is capable of servicing 33,000

passengers per day and has a total floor area of 182,500 sqm. It has 34 aero

bridges, and a 4-level shopping mall, which connects to a 2,000 space car parking

facility. Its opening postponement is a big blow for the airport, which is facing

increasing competition from Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA).
