Are you flying to/ from NAIA? Check this post on the NAIA Airlines Terminal Reassignment 2023.
As per Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), the NAIA terminals reassignment is done to alleviate the congestion in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport terminals. Several airline companies were affected by the change in NAIA terminals like Philippine Airlines international flights, Air Asia Philippines domestic flights, and other foreign airlines operating in NAIA.
MIAA’s STAR (Schedule & Terminal Assignment Rationalization) program intend to make NAIA Terminal 2 into an all-domestic facility. Hence, the transfer of airlines with international flights to other Terminals. The area where the Immigration counters are can give way for expansion that can accommodate more domestic passengers.
Under the STAR scheme, international flights will be re-assigned to NAIA Terminals 1 and 3 where passengers can enjoy more time in duty free shopping, wider selection of foods, and retail stores.
With the NAIA terminal reassignments, making Terminal 2, an all-domestic facility, Customs, Immigration, and Quarantine (CIQ) can improve their manpower distribution in international terminals (Terminal 1 and 3).
