|Terminal 3 is Home to 5 More Foreign Airlines|
July 31, 2014, Manila International Airport Authority – MIAA General Manager expressed elation over the forthcoming transfer of five (5) foreign airlines to the NAIA Terminal 3.
As a prelude to their official transfer to NAIA Terminal 3 (NT3) on August 1, 2014, two flights of Delta Airlines are set to arrive tonight in NT3.
“Passengers of Delta Airlines flights DL 629 and DL473 with an estimated arrival time of 2105H and 2145H, respectively, will be deplaning from Terminal 3. We are excited to welcome these passengers as they take their first step on this new Terminal,” Honrado said.
Following Delta Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is set to move in to Terminal 3 on August 4, followed by Emirates Airlines on August 15. On the 1st of September, Singapore Airlines will also begin operating their flights in and out of Terminal 3. To complete the list, Cathay Pacific is expected to move in by second week of September.
“We thank these airlines for heeding our call to use Terminal 3 for their operations. Their cooperation plays a vital role for us to achieve our desire to decongest Terminal 1 by some 3 million passengers annually,” Honrado stated.
“All’s well that ends well. Finally, Terminal 3 finally opens its doors to the world,” Honrado gladly stated.
In closing, Honrado urged relatives, friends and well-wishers of passengers arriving and departing on these airlines to take note of the transfer dates to avoid confusion.
The flight information offices of Terminals 1 and 3 may be reached at 877.1109 local 2852 or 765 and 877.7888 local 8144, respectively. Inquiries pertaining to the arrival and departure flights of the five (5) airlines may be directed to these numbers.
