Local and International Airports of the Philippines
Request to fellow pilots who have photo's of some of the local airports to submit their photo's. In the mean time this is my humble collection.
Ninoy Aquino International Airport
Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Ninoy Aquino
(IATA: MNL, ICAO: RPLL)
The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Filipino: Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Ninoy Aquino) or NAIA (IATA: MNL, ICAO: RPLL) is the airport serving the general area of Manila and its surrounding metropolitan area. Located along the border between Pasay City and Parañaque City, about seven kilometers south of Manila proper, and southwest of Makati City, NAIA is the main international gateway for travelers to the Philippines and is the hub for all Philippine airlines. It is managed by the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), a branch of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC).
Officially, NAIA is the only airport serving the Manila area. However, in practice, both NAIA and Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) at the Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles City, Pampanga serve the Manila area, with DMIA catering mostly to low-cost carriers that avail of the lower landing fees than those in NAIA. In the long term, DMIA is set to replace NAIA as the primary airport of the Philippines.
In 2006, the airport handled 17.7 million passengers. This showed an 8.9% growth in passenger numbers from the 2005 figures of 16,193,611 and placed the airport as the 72nd busiest airport worldwide in terms of passenger traffic.
In 2007, the airport handled 20,467,627 passengers. This was a 14.1% growth in passenger numbers compared to 2006, placing the airport 59th worldwide in terms of passenger traffic.
In 2008, the airport handled just under 22.3 million passengers.
