The proposed new terminal assignments of airlines will no longer proceed.

According to the statement released by Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), no transfer of airlines will occur until further notice.

“Discussions gave rise to unforeseen operational constraints that require longer time to resolve,” the statement continues.

“In this regard, the MIAA in its letter dated June 5, 2018, formalized to the Committee Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Transportation, its request to defer the implementation of the Terminal Rationalization Program.”

The reports that there will be reshuffling in the terminal assignments of airlines began when PTV, the government-owned television network, made the first announcement. The PTV news report stated that the changes would be effective August 31, 2018, which caused some confusion among the traveling public.

Here’s the full video report by PTV:

In the supposed plan, according to PTV, the assignments would have been the following:

NAIA Terminal 1

  • Philippine Airlines
  • Etihad Airways
  • Japan Airlines
  • Saudia Airlines
  • Thai Airways

NAIA Terminal 2

  • Cebu Pacific Air (Domestic Flights)
  • Philippine Airlines (Domestic Flights)

NAIA Terminal 3

  • Air Asia (international flights)*
  • Air China
  • Air Niugini
  • Asiana Airlines
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Cebu Pacific Air (international flights)*
  • China Airlines
  • China Eastern Airlines
  • China Southern Airlines
  • Delta Air Lines
  • Emirates
  • EVA Air
  • Gulf Air
  • Jeju Air
  • Jetstar Airways
  • KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
  • Korean Air
  • Kuwait Airways
  • Oman Air
  • Qantas Airways
  • Qatar Airways
  • Royal Brunei Airlines
  • Tiger Air
  • Xiamen Air
  • + All Other International Carriers (Except for the 5 assigned to Terminal 1)

NAIA Terminal 4

  • All Other Domestic Flights (except PAL and Cebu Pacific)

Again, to be clear, this plan will no longer push through.

It’s always good practice to contact the airline before your flight to confirm the right terminal because there could be further changes.

      Hi Emmy. Non-passengers can ride, but it’s safe so far. I haven’t heard of any incident involving P2P buses. Not yet, at least.

    Good news..I cant begin to imagine the chaos these changes would have caused, and having recently experienced the poor shuttle service from terminal 3 to terminal 2 this rethink is a blessing.
