Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport

Where is Manila Ninoy Aquino Airport?  


Manila, the capital of the Philippines, is the nation's centre of transportation, business and education. Manila city, the most densely populated in the world, attracts more than 1 million tourists a year. Popular attractions include Intramuros, the old walled city, as well as museums and the zoo.


Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (IATA: MNL, ICAO: RPLL), or Manila Ninoy Aquino Airport, or Ninoy Aquino Airport, also known as Manila International Airport, and called NAIA by locals, was named after late Senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr.

It is unfortunate, but Ninoy Aquino Airport has a terrible reputation for dirty toilets, inadequate seating and general chaos, and has made it to lists of the world's worst airports. This criticism is generally directed at Terminal 1, which is operating at far over capacity. We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but we don't want you to be surprised!

UPDATE: authorities announced a new plan to maintain washrooms at NAIA in July 2016. Let's hope there is a BIG improvement!
