MANILA, Philippines – Ahead of the holiday season, several Philippine Airlines (PAL) and AirAsia flights will be reassigned to different terminals of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) starting December.

Beginning December 1, PAL flights to and from the United States, Canada, the Middle East, and Bali (Denpasar) will transfer to NAIA terminal 1. Previously, these flights were assigned to NAIA terminal 2.  

PAL flights to other international and domestic destinations will remain at NAIA terminal 2.

PAL passengers arriving in NAIA terminal 1 who have connecting flights in NAIA terminal 2 will be provided with shuttle services. Those with connecting international or domestic flights in NAIA terminal 3 and NAIA terminal 4 may avail of the complimentary Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) shuttle service.  

Check-in procedures at the reassigned terminals will remain the same. US bound passengers are still advised to give ample time for TSA-mandated secondary checks and other security inspections.
