Cheap Flights to Ninoy Aquino International

Ninoy Aquino International overview

Ninoy Aquino International Airport is about 7km (4.3 miles) south of Manila, the cosmopolitan capital of the Philippines, and is a major gateway to the country. It serves as a hub for all Philippine airlines and is one of the 50 busiest airports in the world, serving 27 million passengers each year. Flights to Ninoy Aquino International Airport arrive from major hubs in Asia and the Pacific region, as well as a handful of cities a little further afield such as Amsterdam, Detroit and Dubai.

If you're catching one of the many international flights to Ninoy Aquino International Airport, chances are you'll go through the old Terminal 1, widely regarded as one of the worst terminals in Asia. It generally operates way over capacity, especially in peak season – so make sure you factor in lots of time. There are plans to shift more international flights to the sleek new Terminal 3, although so far, this has been hampered by red tape.

Overall, this airport is a little chaotic and can be confusing to navigate, but with a healthy dose of patience, you'll get through it to your holiday in the Philippines without too much trouble.
