There are 4 terminals at NAIA. Terminal 1 handles all international flights except those operated by Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, PAL Express, Zest Airways, and All Nippon Airways. Terminal 2 or the Centennial Terminal is exclusively used by Philippine Airlines for both its domestic and international flights. Terminal 3 serves the passengers of Cebu Pacific and Air Philippines.

Local Travel

Taxi service is available from NAIA to all points of Metro Manila. Take only official, metered or pre-booked taxis. Do not accept rides from people that approach you in the terminal. Taxis charge around 150-200 Pesos (USD6-USD8) to central Manila hotels. It will take about 20 minutes to one hour for the trip, depending on traffic.
