Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport

Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila is the Philippines' busiest airport, handling around 28 million passengers annually from four terminals. The airport lies 8 km (5 miles) south of central Manila.

Fly to this airport with KLM


There is a dedicated Airport Bus that runs into Metro Manila regularly from outside Arrivals, costing P50 and taking between 45 minutes and two hours, according to the time of day. A local Metrobus service leaves every 15 minutes from underneath the flyover outside the airport and covers destinations along the EDSA ring road in the city centre. This bus takes between one or two hours with frequent stops and the fare is P20.

Major hotels provide a free pick-up service for their guests by prior arrangement or at the hotel reservations desk within the terminal. Journey time varies according to time of day. Travelling into Manila during rush hour means a trip of up to two hours.

Shuttle Bus

Not one for the business traveller, but Jeepneys (colourful elongated vans) are a cheap way of getting into Manila or to the Metrorail terminal at Quirino Avenue, which connects with the city centre. Due to congestion on the main routes into Manila, journey times vary from 45 minutes to more than two-and-a-half hours, with numerous stops along the way. Jeepneys do not service individual hotels, so are not ideal if travelling with heavy luggage. A single fare to the Metrorail terminal is around P15-23.


At Terminal 1, book at the taxi offices in Arrivals and present the receipt at the transport desk outside the building. An official metered taxi, accredited by the DOT (Department of Tourism), will then be summoned.  A single fare into Metro Manila in a prepaid taxi is between P700-800. Yellow airport taxis are also found outside the terminals; make sure the meter is on before you start and a journey costs between P380-450. Don't pick up an unaccredited taxi; you will be over-charged.


All major car-hire firms have offices in the Arrivals Hall at Terminal 1. Follow the South Superhighway into the centre of Manila. However, traffic is heavy (journey time to cover 8 km (5 miles) varies between 30 minutes and two hours in rush hour), parking limited and driving aggressive. In addition, a government initiative to cut down on pollution requires that cars with certain registration plates can only be driven in Metro Manila on specific days. Perhaps best avoided!
