NAIA Terminal 2, a domestic terminal by July 2023 – MIAA
Manila, Philippines – The NAIA Terminal 2 will be exclusively used for domestic flights starting this July.
This, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said was meant to decongest immigration lines in the NAIA’s two other terminals.
In an interview with state TV network PTV, MIAA Senior Assistant General Manager Bryan Co disclosed that a terminal rationalization plan has been in place since December.
“By June 16, the remaining international flights of Philippine Airlines will be moved to Terminal 1 para po by July 1, Terminal 2 will become domestic na po,” he stressed.
“Ang improvement po nito sa ating system in terms of the Immigration.. ang kanilang mga tauhan ay maireredeploy na natin sa ibang existing terminals natin which is Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 upang makatulong sa pago-augment ng manpower requirements natin doon dahil isa po ito sa ga nakakacontribute sa paghaba ng pila,” Co added.
He doing so would make the terminal design “more efficient and according to what it is intended for,” adding that Terminal 2 was originally designed to accommodate domestic flights.
The said new scheme is expected to increase likewise NAIA Terminal 2’s capacity by 20 to 25 percent.
Apar from Philippine Airlines flights, the domestic terminal will also host flights from Air Asia Philippines by July, Co disclosed.
