    How to Get to NAIA Terminal 3: Map, Commute, Driving Directions

    On a recent trip somewhere down south, Tutubi was welcomed with unexpected rain in the summertime, an event that made it hard to flag down taxis everywhere in the metro, much more at the airport when even airport taxi passenger queues got long. Faced with the dilemma and eagerness to get home as quickly as he can, he boarded the shuttle bus at the exit gate of NAIA Terminal 3 that took him to MRT in the fastest, cheapest way for PhP20.00

    UPDATE: The NAIA 3 shuttle bus to Taft Avenue has been discontinued

    Herewith is updated information on commuting to NAIA Terminal 3 via the shuttle bus from NAIA Terminal 3 with a route that passes by these places:

    Andrews Avenue (PAF Aerospace Museum, Shrine of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, Marriott Hotel, Maxims Hotel, Newport City, Resorts World Manila)
    Airport Road
    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.

    How to get to NAIA Terminal 3:

    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.

    From Cavite to NAIA Terminal 3: board buses or vans to Baclaran and alight on Roxas Boulevard at the corner of Airport road. Transfer to a jeepney going to Nichols and drop off in front of the terminal.

    from Laguna, board buses going to LRT Taft Avenue. ride the LRT to EDSA avenue station (or a jeepney to EDSA/taft Rotonda). Board jeepneys going to Nichols.

    From Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City, there's Citylink bus that goes straight to Newport City via C-5.

    From NAIA Terminal 3 to Bonifacio Global City, you can take Citylink bus via c5 up to Easwood Mall

    You can take the

    Driving Direction to NAIA Terminal 3:

    From EDSA Makati, head towards Magallanes and turn left on SLEX. Turn right on the road going to Nichols (Sales Interchange), pass by Villamor Airbase gate, PAF Aerospace Museum the the terminal to your left.

    From Bicol, Quezon, Batangas and Laguna, you can take Skyway from Alabang then take Airport road exit to get you there fastest. Same Skyway exit from Bicutan and Sucat (toll fee airport to bicutan is PhP50.00 starting April 20, 2011)

    If you want to know how much is the overnight parking at NAIA Terminal 3, it's just PhP50.00/night (it's safe due to presence of security guards) or try the more expensive Park N' Fly service.

    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, Blogger GingGoy 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, Blogger GingGoy 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, Blogger GingGoy 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, Blogger GingGoy 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.

    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, Blogger GingGoy said...

    anonymous, the shuttle bus is operated by MIAA and therefore airline-agnostic. no problem there whatever carrier you're taking
