Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Ninoy Aquino International Airport, (Filipino: Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Ninoy Aquino) or NAIA (pronounced /ˈnaɪ.ə/), (IATA: MNL, ICAO: RPLL) is a public airport located in Philippine's capitol city of Manila between the districts of Pasay and Paranaque, Philippines. NAIA serves the international and national air traffic for the country on the island of Luzon.

The airport is named after Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr., who was assassinated at NAIA in 1983.

Following the Philippine's Independency in 1948, NAIA moved to it's actual location. Because a fire damaged Terminal 1 in 1972, it was rebuild completely, with a capacity of 4.5 million passengers per year. NAIA-1 has 18air bridges and serves 27 airlines. Terminal 2 (nicknamed "Centennial Terminal") completed in 1998 adding the capacity of another 2.5 million passengers for international flights plus 5 million passengers for domestic arrivals and departures. NAIA-2 is exclusively used by Philippines Airlines (PAL) with it's 12 air bridges distributed over the north- and south wing to separate domestic from international arrivals and departures. Terminal 3 followed in 2008 adding the capacity of approximately 13 million passengers per year. NAIA-3 has 16 air bridges and serves Cebu Pacific Airlines (CEB), "Air Philippines" and PAL's budget brand "PAL Express" for domestic and international flights.
