Effective August 31, new terminal assignments for airlines at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) will be implemented.

In an advisory posted by the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB), NAIA Terminal 1 will be solely for international flights, while Terminal 2 will be exclusively for the domestic flights of Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Cebu Pacific.

Airlines assigned to Terminal 1 include PAL (international flights), Etihad, Saudia Airlines, Japan Airlines, and Thai Airways.

Terminal 3 will house the international flights of Cebu Pacific and those of other foreign airlines not assigned to Terminal 1.

Terminal 4, meanwhile, will accommodate the domestic flights of other airlines other than PAL and Cebu Pacific.

CAB executive director Carmelo Arcilla, in a text message to PortCalls, said the re-assignment was an initiative of the Department of Transportation and Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA). He said the new assignments are “about decongesting NAIA by maximizing the use of the terminals through the alignment of domestic and international operations in accordance with the design of the terminals.”

Under the current terminal arrangement, Terminal 1 houses the flights of most foreign carriers, while Terminal 2 is exclusively for flights of PAL and sister airline PAL Express. Terminal 3 also serves several foreign carriers, while Terminal 4 is for the flights of Cebgo, SkyJet, and AirAsia.

NAIA operator MIAA last April announced its plan to change the terminal assignments of airlines as part of the airport’s rationalization and response to Congress’ call for improved air traffic at the country’s main aviation hub.
