Overcrowded NAIA Terminal 3

Overcrowded NAIA Terminal 3

Terminal 3 in NAIA (Ninoy Aquino International Airport) in Manila is awfully overcrowded  .

Overcrowded NAIA Terminal 3

People waiting for their domestic flights at the gate can not find a seat. In above picture they could at least sit on the floor. There are several reasons for this inconvenience:

  1. NAIA-3 had not been built for LCC operation (LCC = Low Cost Carrier)
  2. The 2 LCC operating from NAIA-3, Cebu Pacific and Airphil Express, have problems with the notorious traffic congestion in Manila’s airspace
  3. Too many flights are handled at the same gate. The picture below shows 4 CEB flights at the same time at the same gate. 

Is there a solution?

No and yes!  
Manila needs a new airport with at least 4 times more capacity. Clark is no solution when there is no express and priority transportation within 30 to 40 minutes. Cebu must become again attractive for international carriers.
