The Airport That Almost Never Operated

*The following article is a copy from ABS-CBN's News Article of the same topic.

The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) on Sunday advised relatives and friends of passengers on board Philippine Airlines (PAL) flight PR 105 arriving Manila on Monday morning to pick up their passengers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3, not at Terminal 2 where PAL flights operate.

President Arroyo and her party, coming from a ten-day working visit at the United States, are in the flight, coming from San Francisco, California.

PAL flights usually originate or depart from Terminal 2, also known as Centennial Terminal, which PAL exclusively leases.

In a statement, General Manager Alfonso Cusi advised relatives and friends picking up passengers from the said flight, which will arrive at around 2:30 a.m. Monday, to proceed to the NAIA Terminal 3, located along Andrews Avenue, Villamor Airbase compound in Pasay.

"Well-wishers can proceed directly to NAIA Terminal 3 arrival lobby. The usual security inspections will be in place," MIAA said.

"Everyone is encouraged to cooperate with our security teams manning the entrances to the Terminal 3 compound," the agency added.

This may mean they renovated or maybe not "renovated" but made sure that all is safe and all that. Hmmm... Im thinking all other things and would rather type it all down in Tagalog for the world not to know but nah. Im just happy Terminal 3 is now being used for what it had been intended for.

...and after the promised opening in 2002, or 6 years later, we still salivate to use NAIA III or even have a taste of how iti is like smelling its restrooms. I hope I'd be able to use this new (6-year old) airport when I fly out in October. :)
