MIAA Media Affairs head Jess Martinez said that only five airlines with international flights will remain in NAIA Terminal 1 by the third quarter of the year. These are Thai Airways, Saudia Airlines, Japan Airlines, Etihad Airlines and Philippine Airlines (PAL).

He said the foreign airlines operating at the NAIA Terminal 1 that will transfer to NAIA Terminal 3 include: China Southern, China Airlines, China Eastern, Xiamen Air, Oman Air, Eva Air, Kuwait Air, Jetstar, Gulf Air, Korean Airlines, Asiana Airlines, Qantas Air, Malaysian Airlines, Qatar Air, Royal Brunei, Tiger Air, Jeju Air, Air Niugini and Air China.

Martinez said Terminal 2 will be used by PAL and Cebu Pacific domestic flights only while Terminal 4 will handle other domestic flights.

The target completion of the airline transfers will be on August 31, Monreal said.
