Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 will be fully operational by August 1, 2014.
“We are confident that the contractor will meet the deadline. By the middle of June, the completion was at 85 percent. So far, we have not received a request for extension from the contractor,” Mianila International Airport Authority General Manager Jose Angel Honrado said.
Starting August 1 NAIA Terminal 3 will start accommodating international flights from Delta Airlines, KLM, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, and Emirates Airlines. This is to decongest the NAIA Terminal 1.
Honrado said that basic amenities including 24 additional brand new X-ray machines are ready to serve the passengers. “What we just need are the people to man this equipment.”
Rehabilitation work of Takenaka Corportion of Japan is on track. The said contractor was chosen to do the rehabilitation of the airport’s baggage handling, flight information displays, computer terminals, gate coordination and fire protection systems.
