NAIA-3, is the newest and biggest terminal in the NAIA complex

The third terminal of the airport, Terminal 3 or NAIA-3, is the newest and biggest terminal in the NAIA complex, wherein construction started in 1997. It was one of the most controversial projects the Philippine government has become involved with. Legal battles and red tape, especially international cases in both the United States and Singapore as a result of mismanagement of the project by the Estrada government, as well as technical and safety concerns, delayed the opening several times.

The terminal officially opened to selected domestic flights from 22 July 2008 (initially Cebu Pacific only, then Philippine Airlines’ subsidiaries Air Philippines and PAL Express), with Cebu Pacific international flights using it from August 1, 2008 and all Manila-bound domestic and international flights will be transferred to NAIA-3, hopefully by the fourth quarter of 2009.PAL will continue to operate from Terminal 2.
