Manila International Airport

Ninoy Aquino International Airport

Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport or NAIA (MNL) is located between the cities of Pasay and Paranaque, about 7 kilometres south of Metro Manila. It is officially the the only airport that serves Manila city, even though Clark International Airport in Angeles City also serves the capital city of the Philippines.

Established at its present location in 1948, Manila Airport has been through major renovations and constructions throughout the years. It hosts four terminals, two runways, and can handle around 40 million passengers per year nowadays. A convenient shuttle bus service that allows passengers to move from one terminal to the other departs every 15 minutes, 24/7.

Manila Airport Transfer Services

There’s a fair range of transportation options to get from and to Manila Airport. Taxis charge around PHP 200 to get you to the hotels in the central part of Metro Manila, some 20 minutes’ ride away. Bus and jeepneys are also at hand to take you almost anywhere in the metropolis. Major hotels often have shuttle services by private car, but at less competitive rates compared with taxis.

Metro-Rail Transit line is an economic way to travel fro and to the airport. The closest station is EDSA-Taft station some two kilometres north of the airport, from which it is connected by a shuttle bus. If you are an independent traveller and want to keep it that way, you’ll find no less than over 10 car rental companies’ desks at Terminals 1, 2, and 3. You just need an international driver’s licence or an English-language driver’s licence to get on the roads of the Philippines.
