three foreign airlines moving operations to NAIA Terminal 3 next year

Good news to international travelers!

Cathay Pacific, Delta Airways and Emirates are the three foreign airlines which are moving their operations to Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA T3) beginning next year.

According to Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez in an interview by ABS-CBN the transfer will significantly reduce congestions at the terminals.

Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez said Delta Airways, Cathay Pacific and Emirates will be joining the local carriers currently operating at NAIA-3. 
"Pag bukas na yung NAIA-3, makakalipat na yung ibang airlines so luluwag na yung NAIA-1," Jimenez said. 
Jimenez said the government is sprucing up NAIA-3 faster than it is doing with NAIA-1 to facilitate the transfer. But he pointed out that both airports should be running at optimum capacity by next year.--lifted from abs-cbnnews.com

At present, the controversial (and mothballed) NAIA T3 is home to local budget carrier Air Philippines Express and Cebu Pacific Air as well as international carrier All Nippon Airways (ANA).

  1. That's good to hear since there are not much airlines operating in NAIA 3 beside Cebu Pacific and Zest Air. It'll be good since it'll reduce the amount of operating airlines in NAIA 1, which is already crowded.
