All Philippine Airlines (PAL) international flights will transfer to Terminal 1 from Terminal 2 of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) starting June 16, 2023.

Flights that will depart from/arrive at Terminal 1 include 23 destinations, namely Bangkok, Beijing, Brisbane, Busan, Fukuoka, Guangzhou, Tokyo (Haneda), Hong Kong, Jakarta, Jinjiang, Osaka (Kansai), Kuala Lumpur, Macau, Melbourne, Nagoya, Tokyo (Narita), Perth, Port Moresby, Seoul (Incheon), Shanghai, Sydney, Taipei, and Xiamen.

PAL domestic flights remain in Terminal 2.

The transfer of all PAL internationals flights to NAIA Terminal 1 is part of the Manila International Airport Authority’s (MIAA) terminal reassignment program to ease passenger congestion at all terminals.

In an advisory, PAL reminded passengers to check the flight terminal assigned to their flight before proceeding to the airport to ensure a hassle-free departure and arrival. Shuttle buses between Terminals 1 and 2 will also be available for passengers with connecting flights in the other terminal.

Under MIAA’s Schedule & Terminal Assignment Rationalization (STAR) program, international flights have been reassigned to Terminals 1 and 3, while Terminal 2 will eventually be an all-domestic facility by July.

With this move, MIAA expects Terminal 2’s capacity will increase from 7.5 million to 10 million passengers a year, 20 to 25% more than its current rate as infrastructure such as immigration counters will be transferred to Terminals 1 and 3.
