How to Get to NAIA Terminal 3: Map, Commute, Driving Directions
UPDATE: The NAIA 3 shuttle bus to Taft Avenue has been discontinued
Andrews Avenue (PAF Aerospace Museum, Shrine of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, Marriott Hotel, Maxims Hotel, Newport City, Resorts World Manila)
right on Roxas Boulevard (Baclaran Church, Buses to Cavite and Tagaytay via Silang)
right on EDSA (Heritage Hotel (casino filipino) LRT Taft Avenue, EDSA MRT Station, EDSA Rotonda, Metropoint Mall)
right on Aurora blvd (formerly Tramo St.) then Edwards Avenue going back to NAIA terminal 3
the shuttle bus is the safest, fastest way to get out of NAIA Terminal 3 when there are no airport taxis around nor ordinary taxis in sight or when the taxi queues are too long for your patience.

Commuting to NAIA termninal 3? from EDSA rotonda (get there via EDSA buses, jeepneys on Taft Avenue, MRT Taft Avenue Station or LRT EDSA Station), ride jeepneys going to Nichols and alight in front of NAIA Terminal 3 on Andrews Avenue. The same jeepneys also pass by the terminal going to Baclaran, EDSA Rotonda or SM Mall of Asia on your return trip.

Do you know how long it takes to get to Terminal 2 from Terminal 3 via the shuttle buses? Also, are there flights to Davao at Terminal 3?
- At Apr 13, 2009, 9:15:00 PM, backpacking philippines said...
anonymous, travel time between terminals is just about 15 minutes. i've heard the shuttle makes a round trip every 30 minutes between all terminals but I've yet to try it first hand since i don't have a need for it. Cebu Pacific and PAL Express operates at NAIA Terminal 3 ad they have daily flights to davao

driving directions from Sampaloc to terminal 3 via roxas boulevard? thanks
- At Jul 22, 2009, 7:06:00 PM, backpacking philippines said...
Anonymous, from Sampaloc, easiest (though not the fastest probably), head to Quiapo, cross Quezon bridge, follow Burgos St then turn left on Roxas Boulevard, turn left on Airport Road (the next intersection after passing Baclaran Church) and head straight to Andrews Avenue where you'll find NAIA T3 :P

driving directions from Diliman, Q.C via c-5, is it straight ahead and are there sign boards at c-5 to finally get there?
- At Aug 11, 2009, 10:09:00 PM, backpacking philippines said...
anonymous, nope. from C5 you need to turn right on Bayani Road (pass by libingan ng mga bayani) then left on lawton avenue going to Villamor Airbase then right on Andrews avenue. Or from C5's end, turn right on the service road then left on Nichols towards Villamor Airbase.

Kailangan po ba may connecting flight ka or whatsoever for you to ride the shuttle from T2 to T3? I'll be working at Naia T2 po kasi, so I'm considering transfering to T3, and then commute home.

Ia, i don't know but they probably don't check it, baka nga lang makilala ka na nila kung daily ka sakay ng shuttle :P

Hi, a follow up question. Are there any jeepneys with routes to Alabang or SM Bicutan from Terminal 3? And where would I be able to catch them? Thanks.
- At May 2, 2010, 6:34:00 PM, backpacking philippines said...
Ia, T3 is my favorite terminal but there's no jeepney route passing there except the Nichols-Baclaran or from SM Mall of Asia. There's only the Citylink Eastwood City Libis bus to NAIA Terminal 3 also (bus fare is P38).

just wanna say that i have taken a minibus from the Sogo Hotel parking loop near Taft MRT Station to NAIA3 Terminal for only Php20.00 only. The minibus is labeled NAIA 1-2-3 so i presumed it will also pass thru the other airports. Payments are pre-collected so it is only Php20.00 all around.
- At Sep 20, 2010, 2:33:00 PM, backpacking philippines said...
anonymous, yes, it's the same minibus pictured above. thanks

i am travelling to iloilo next month. i intend to go to Terminal 3 via the Citylink bus in Eastwood. the thing is, I am taking PAL, not CebuPac. Would I be allowed to use the shuttle buses from terminal 3 to terminal 2?
- At Oct 1, 2010, 10:38:00 AM, backpacking philippines said...
anonymous, the shuttle bus is operated by MIAA and therefore airline-agnostic. no problem there whatever carrier you're taking
