Airports Terminals

Airport TerminalS Navigation

NAIA’s four terminals are linked only by busy public roads, and shuttle vans, take a taxi between terminals if you're in a hurry.

Pay close attention to which terminal your airline uses and allow plenty of time between connecting flights if you have to switch terminals. International flights run by Cebu Pacific, ANA, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Emirates Air, KLM and Singapore Airlines use newer Terminal 3.

Transportation

The most convenient way to get out of the Airport terminal is through Taxis. You can have a choice to use the Airport taxi, regular metered taxi or an Online Taxi Service (Grab Taxi). It might not be possible to go directly from the Airport Terminal to Dhamma Phala because it is far and can be very expensive. It is best to go to the bus station and get a ride going from Manila to Tiaong, Quezon.
