    How to Get to Manila Airport: NAIA Terminal 1, 2, 3 and 4: Map, Commute, Directions, Taxi Bus Fare

    Ninoy Aquino International Airport, formerly called Manila International Airport, serves as the official gateway to the Philippines. For information on first-time visitors to the Philippines and also for newbie flyers who're looking for information on how to get to the airport for your flight, Tutubi wrote down this guide based on his own personal knowledge.

    WARNING:
    Don't even think of cracking a bomb joke at the airport. Filipinos may have a sense of humor but bomb jokes can make you miss your flight and get you in serious trouble with the police and airport security people.

    How to Get to NAIA Terminal 1
    Carriers: All International flights of Foreign Carriers

    How to commute to NAIA Terminal 1:

    Option 1: There are jeepneys going to the terminal in Baclaran (you may take the LRT and get off at Baclaran terminal).

    Option 2: On EDSA, wait for buses with signboards MIA (as in Manila International Airport) that pass by the terminal (you need to walk though).

    Option 3: Take a taxi all the way to the airport. From Quezon City Munoz, taxi fare at night is just P280 (trip takes about 40 minutes on lean hours), from Makati CBD is just around P150 (travel time around 20 minutes) while from Ermita and Malate districts of Manila it's about P250. Taxi fare goes up in heavy traffic though.

    Driving Directions NAIA Terminal 1:

    From EDSA, drive towards Makati, past Magallanes interchange and take the left-turn ramp/flyover to Aurora Boulevard. Turn right at the end (Andrews Avenue) then left at the next intersection [Domestic Road, landmarks: Petron and Caltex] then another left on NAIA Road (formerly MIA Road) [landmark: Caltex gas station] then finally a right on Ninoy Aquino Avenue [landmarks: NAIA park on your right, Caltex to your left]. Head straight until you see the terminal ramps. There are direction signs along the way so you won't get lost.

    From NAIA Terminal 1 to your destination on deplaning:

    Airport Taxis are available at the exit gates (expensive and charge a fixed rate based on destination)

    Metered taxis (yellow cabs) available right of exit gates charge more expensive than regular metered taxis (flagdown rate is P70.00) with P4 for every 300 meters.

    In order to flag a metered taxi, upon exit look for the escalators going up to the departure area and hire a taxi that had just offloaded passengers.

    How to Get to NAIA Terminal 2 (Centennial Terminal)
    Used exclusively by Philippine Airlines (PAL) for International and Domestic flights
    NAIA Control Tower

    How to commute to NAIA Terminal 2:

    Option 1: There are jeepneys going to the terminal in Baclaran (you may take the LRT and get off at Baclaran terminal).

    Option 2: On EDSA, wait for buses with signboards MIA (as in Manila International Airport) that pass by the terminal (you need to walk though)

    Option 3: Take a taxi all the way to the airport. From Quezon City Munoz, taxi fare at night is just P280 (trip takes about 40 minutes on lean hours), Makati CBD is just around P150 (travel time around 20 minutes) while from Ermita and Malate districts of Manila it's about PhP250. Taxi fare goes up in heavy traffic though.

    Driving Directions NAIA Terminal 2:


    From EDSA, drive towards Makati, past Magallanes interchange and take the ramp/flyover going to Aurora Boulevard. Turn right at the end (Andrews Avenue) then left at the next intersection (Domestic Road) [landmarks: Petron and Caltex] left on MIA Road (NAIA Road) [you'll see Nayong Pilipino on your left] until you see the terminal ramps. There are direction signs along the way so you won't get lost.

    Overnight Parking at NAIA Terminal 2: PhP50.00/night (it's safe due to presence of security guards)

    From Terminal 2 to your destination on deplaning:

    Airport Taxis (Coupon taxi) are available at the exit gates (expensive and charge a fixed rate based on destination e.g. P450.00 to Makati CBD)
    Metered taxis (yellow cabs) available right of exit gates charge slightly more expensive than regular metered taxis (P70 flag down rate).
    In order to flag a metered, upon exit look for the escalators going up to the departure area and hire a taxi that had just
    offloaded passengers. (You may need to haggle here since some drivers may ask for additional fares on top of the meter or simply
    ask for a fixed fare. Go for the next taxi if that's the case. This is especially true for foreigners)

    How to Get to NAIA Terminal 3
    (Opened July 2008 and currently used by Cebu Pacific, PAL Express and Air Philippines)

    Gates 131-134 of NAIA Terminal 3 are used for domestic flights of Cebu Pacific, PAL Express and Air Philippines

    How to get to NAIA Terminal 3

    Driving Directions to NAIA Terminal 3:

    From Laguna and Batangas via SLEX, take the exit ramp in Nichols right after the SLEX toll gates, turn left towards Villamor Airbase then go around the rotonda infront of NAIA Terminal 3.

    From the north via C5, drive towards Fort Bonifacio towards 5th Avenue where you drive all the way to Villamor Airbase (Nichols) until you see the rotonda and the entrance of terminal 3.

    Alternately, from EDSA, take the flyover to airport road, turn right on Andrews Avenue (landmark: Caltex gas station), make a U-turn at the rotonda, then drive until you see the terminal in front of another roundabout.

    Overnight Parking Fee at NAIA Terminal 3 Carpark: PhP50.00/night (it's safe due to presence of security guards)


    There are no tubes used at Terminal 3 on deplaning for domestic travel. Passengers are required to board shuttle buses to and from the boarding gates.

    How to commute to NAIA Terminal 3:

    Option 1: Jeepneys plying the Nichols to SM Mall of Asia via Macapagal Avenue and Tramo route pass by Andrews Avenue in front of the terminal.

    Option 2: On EDSA, wait for buses with signboards MIA (as in Manila International Airport), alight on Airport Road then transfer to Nichols-bound jeeps.

    Option 3: At EDSA Taft Rotonda (from MRT EDSA Station or LRT Taft Avenue station), board jeepneys with Nichols/Terminal 3 on the signboard.

    Option 3: There's a direct bus to Terminal 3 via C5 from Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City via Fort Bonifacio going to Newport City in front of Terminal 3, operated by Citylink Coach Services (Citylink Business Class is emblazoned on the side of the bus, the same company providing The Fort bus service).

    Option 4: The best yet most expensive, take a cab all the way to the airport terminal. From Quezon City Munoz, taxi fare at night is just P220 (trip takes about 40 minutes on lean hours) and from Makati CBD is just around P110 (travel time around 20 minutes). Taxi fare goes up in heavy traffic though.

    From Terminal 3 to your destination on deplaning:

    Airport Taxis are available at the exit gates (expensive and charge a fixed rate based on destination)

    Metered taxis (yellow cabs) available right of exit gates charge P70 for the first 500 meters and P4 for the every succeeding 300 meters and P4 for every two minutes of waiting time.

    Metered taxi from MGE and EMP are available at the far right end.

    In order to flag a metered, upon exit head straight towards Andrews avenue where metered taxis are queued up. Note that taxi drivers here always try to negotiate a rate and not use the meter.

    You can also ride the jeepney going to Mall of Asia via Tramo and Macapagal Avenue or drop off at Aurora Boulevard then transfer to an EDSA-bound bus to your destination.


    How to Get to Manila Domestic Airport (alternately Manila Domestic Terminal (MDT))
    Carriers: all domestic flights Seair (South East Asian Airlines, usually misspelled as Sea air), ZestAir (formerly Asian Spirit)


    How to commute to Manila Domestic Terminal:

    Of all airport terminals in Manila, this is the most commuter-friendly where public transportation is readily available. You can immediately board a bus to EDSA or a jeep to Baclaran just a few steps outside the terminal.

    Option 1: There are jeepneys going to the terminal in Baclaran (you may take the LRT and get off at Baclaran terminal).

    Option 2: On EDSA, wait for buses with signboards MIA (as in Manila International Airport) that pass by the terminal (you need to walk though)

    Option 3: Take a taxi all the way to the airport. From Quezon City Munoz, taxi fare at night is just P220 (trip takes about 40 minutes on lean hours) and from Makati CBD is just around P110 (travel time around 20 minutes). Taxi fare goes up in heavy traffic though.

    Driving Directions to Manila Domestic Airport:

    From Quezon City via EDSA, drive towards Makati, past Magallanes and take the left-turning ramp/flyover to Aurora Boulevard. Turn right at the end (Edwards Avenue) then left at the next intersection (Domestic Road) [landmarks: Petron and Caltex gas stations]. Continue until you see the Domestic Airport on your left.

    Free Shuttle bus transfers to the various Manila airport terminals:


    Unlike other large airports (e.g. Hong Kong), where terminals are linked by dedicated rails, Manila's 4 terminals are now serviced by free shuttle service should you need to transfer to another terminal to catch a connecting flight.

    On arrival terminal 1, turn right on leaving the arrivals hall and the shuttle stop is about fifty meters in front of you.

    At Terminal 2 (PAL terminal), exit arrival hall and the stop is about one hundred meters and a little to the right.
    A large blue and white sign makes it impossible to miss. The driver said the circuit takes about thirty minutes.

    At Terminal 3 arrival exit, the shuttle queue is just a little to the right, about 20 meters from the door exits.

    Airport Terminal Fees, Tourist Traps and other Information:

    NAIA Terminal Fee: P550.00 for international flights
    NAIA Terminal Fee: P200 for domestic flights (now included in your plane tickets)

    (Terminal Fee is synonymous to airport tax)

    ATMs are available at Terminals 1 and 2, and 3

    Money changers are present in all terminals but usually sell Pesos at higher rates (usually by one or two pesos more) than those outside and buy dollars a peso or two less than the present exchange rate.

    For taxis, you may need to haggle with some drivers who ask for additional fares on top of the meter or simply ask for a fixed fare (kontrata). Proceed to the next taxi if that's the case. This specially true to foreigners.

    Regular Taxi fares in Manila comes with a P40 flagdown rate (plus P10 mandated in addition to the flagdown to offset rising fuel costs) the first 500 meters plus P3.50 for every 300 meters and P3.50 for every two minutes waiting time (or idle time in heavy traffic).

    If you intend to drive your own car to catch your flight, you may opt to park your car at Park n Fly where a shuttle service can take and fetch you at the airport. Rates are P10/hour with minimum of 24 hours.

    Overnight Parking at NAIA Terminal 2: PhP50.00/night or PhP35 day rate.

    Free Wireless Internet (Wifi) at the waiting area of NAIA Terminal 2

Cebu Pacific and PAL Express operates at NAIA Terminal 3 ad they have daily flights to davao

    moodysf, from the airport, taxis can take you to Buendia corner Taft avenue to at JAM Transit terminal. taxi fare is around PhP80 and not to exceed P100. If you're passing NAIA Terminal 3 and feeling adventurous, take the shuttle at the exits going to MRT/LRT (fare=P20) drop off after crossing Taft avenue (where the LRT is), then walk back towards Taft avenue then board jeepneys going to Quiapo/Divisoria then request the driver to drop you off at the bus terminal of JAM on Buendia.

    thanks...........................

     
    At Apr 22, 2009, 9:24:00 PM, Blogger backpacking philippines said...

    anonymous, the P450 i quoted is a big car, much like a toyota avanza or revo, with lots of luggage space at the back. it's also fr Makati CBD too and fare increases as you go farther.

    isnt bad enough with the luggages.
    this is the only site ive found with
    complete information.

    anonymous, how many are you? the coupon taxis have specific fares to certain designated areas. i've never actually rode them, I just asked them once just to know. at least they're safe. no meter since it's a contract price. available at the airport exits, get the coupon from the counter, pay then ride.

    At Oct 13, 2009, 3:36:00 PM, OpenID corkescrews said...

    Great site! I know this is in your Airport Fees post, but just to reiterate: the Travel Tax (P1,620.00) for international flights may or may not be tucked into your ticket price. If you buy your ticket via a travel agent, make sure the price is tucked in. If you buy online (eg CebuPac, PAL, Jetstar), you'll have to pay the Travel Tax at the airport, aside from the P750 Terminal Fee (for international flights). Just to keep in mind so you're not short of cash at the airport.

    And every time I fly out of the Philippines, I keep pesos for cab fare for my return to Manila, and I tell the yellow cab drivers up front that I have only enough for my usual fare. The metred yellow cabs are sometimes dodgy and the drivers then just choose to turn off the metre and accept what you give, because they'll end up paying their company whatever is in excess of what you choose to pay if you dispute the fare. It usually costs only P180-P200 to get to my flat from T1 so I have only P200, but a couple of times the metre already got as high as P300 using the same route and without traffic. Caveat emptor, etc.

    An, which NAIA terminal? From manila airport terminal 3, you can ride the shuttle bus to EDSA LRT taft then ride a Divisoria-bound jeepney there. from Domestic airport, terminals 1 and 2, you can ride the jeepneys bound for Baclaran, then transfer to Divisoria-bound jeepneys. These days, it's hard to flag a metered taxi at the airport much more going to Divisoria.

    anonymous, from which naia terminal? anyway, to get to calamba from the airport, you need to get to ridethe shuttle to LRT/Taft at NAIA terminal 3, or the jeepney from terminal 1 & 3 to LRT/Taft. transfer to a jeepney bound for quiapo/divisoria/sta cruz and request the driver to drop you off at Greenstar terminal (JAM) near the corner of Buendi and taft ave (you can also take the LRT and get off at Gil Puyat station). GreenStar buses will take you to Calamba (are you going to Pansol hot spring resort?)

Read also this NAIA Terminal 3 shuttle bus post. I remember asking the conductor about the trip going to Terminal, it's around 5am in the morning first trip and 9pm in the evening last trip. I don't have an upcoming trip but if you're going there, might as well ask and please leave a comment for me to update this. thanks

    libertyports/anonymous, the airport shuttles are always there to ferry passengers to various airport terminals. if you can wait and there are waiting cabs, just hail them. travel time to/from various terminals is just about 15 minutes or less, it's the waiting time that can really delay you

If I were you, I'll go out and explore, you might discover something new. all i know is that the buses on EDSA with MIA signboard pass by T1 and T2, there are also jeeps from baclaran going there, plus the jeepneys that pass by NAIA terminal 3. those jeepneys meet at a common point, it's one of the places worth to check out first

    anonymous, if it's your first time in manila, suggest you just take the metered taxi from the airport to makati. it's just around P100 never beyond P150 unless it's heavy traffic, around P200 if you take the yellow airport taxi and about P420 for the coupon taxis with receipt). I used to work in Trident tower on Buendia (Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue) beside the old site of Shell Maya. The building is a green color and shaped like a tuning fork, there are only two prongs but it's called Trident :P if you want to commute there, it's not easy for first timers.

I live near SM North and Trinoma that's why i know and i prefer to travel early morning flights for faster travel time. At around 7am to 8pm, your taxi fare might shoot up to P250 due to heavy traffic.

    zAP, NAIA terminal 2 to Marikina? where in marikina and what time? It's around P200 during off-peak hours to SM Marikina. No more than P300 depends on your actual location and traffic condition ezpecially of C5 road. It's not scary. If you have not much luggage and hard to get a taxi, you can ride the shuttle bus to MRT/LRT for P20, transfer to LRT and get off at Doroteo Jose Station then transfer to LRT 2 Avenida Recto and get off at LRT 2 Santolan Station. You can get a cab there or a jeepney to your destination in Marikina

    anonymous, AFAIK, cebu Pacific does not allow early check in. You can only do so once the check in counters open for your flight which is just a few hours before your ETD. You can verify with them though just to be sure.

    ave, yes, they have at T3. i have a separate post on overnight parking at naia terminal 3. parking fee is PhP50.00/night. parking at terminal 3 though is smaller than terminal 2 and i get feedback that it's always full so be there early to be sure to get a slot and not miss your flight

    hi, I'll be flying to manila this wednesday from cebu, can you suggest which is the best way to commute from NAIA 3 to Makati Prime Tower suites in Kalayaan Ave. and P. Burgos st...i am traveling with no baggage.. TIA

    anonymous, just take a taxi going there, it's not easy if it's your first time to go to makati and manila. taxi fare is around P120 to P150. if not, it may take at least 3 rides going there by commuting.

    2. is there a bus or jeepney that goes to Mall of Asia from the airport?

    Thanking you in advance :-)

    Nzah, i don't notice any baggage counter there but you may want to ask airport information. I think you're flying via Terminal 1, yes there are buses and jeepneys to SM Mall of Asia but I suggest just taking the cab. Taxis can be flagged down near the departure area, if there's a long queue at the arrival area.

I saw coupon taxi rates displayed at the airport, i should've taken a picture to post the information here.

    At backpacking philippines,thank you so much for your reply. It was greatly appreciated. My destination is at Ortigas Center,and a fare of around 500php is good enough, since I thought it would be more than 1000php just to go there from Terminal 1. It's a good thing also that they have coupon taxi rates displayed at the airport like what you've said, that way people wouldn't be fooled by taxi drivers just to get some extra cash. thank you so much! :)

    anonymous, the shuttle bus looks the bus picture on naia terminal 3. you have a tight schedule. arrive at 1540, get your bags from carousel if you have them then ride the shuttle to terminal 3? you need to check in at 1725HRS too. the shuttle is just outside the arrival area of NAIA terminal 1. inquire from airport helpdesk if it's already coming, if not take the yellow airport taxi to terminal 3 (about PhP150 taxi fare) or if many people in queue, take the airport coupon taxi (no idea of the fare but probably about PhP200.00 or less than 4 euros). note that taxis don't accept foreign currencies, there are money changers at the airport terminal or withdraw at ATMs using VISA, mastercard credit cards (select credit card cash advance transactions). any disruption in your flight may occur in your missing your davao flight
