Fastest airport tag given Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA)

This is one for the books, and we will take it!

The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) which was once the butt of jokes was hailed recently as one of the fastest Asia Pacific (APAC) airports to exit in a survey released by Blacklane, a global chauffeur and airport concierge service.

This is a first and a sure welcome, after a few weeks back President Rodrigo Roa Duterte threatened to make the Philippine Air Force take over the airport if they will not shape up.

Blacklane’s analysis ranks the NAIA as the 7th fastest APAC airport to exit for international arrivals, taking an average of 37 minutes to exit, shorter than a global average of 38 minutes.

Blacklane analysis covers the total time for travelers to exit the aircraft, gather their luggage, secure clearance in immigration and customs and walk to their vehicles. Shanghai ranked first in the APAC category.

They also considered as important the short exit time are the smaller size of aircraft and airport terminals.

The study also considered the substantial deployment of airport employees to accommodate passengers, as well as new technology such as e-gates that speed up travelers’ exit.
Department of Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade commended Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) general manager Ed Monreal, for the international citation.
“I congratulate the MIAA for this achievement. This is evidence that the management of the country’s main gateway is geared towards enhancing the comfort and convenience of the air-riding public, as aspired for by no less than President Rodrigo Duterte himself,” Tugade expressed.
