Paolo Duterte leads the bill that seeks to rename NAIA




Will you agree?
House of Representatives Deputy Speaker Davao City’s 1st District Representative Paolo Duterte, lawmakers Lord Allan Velasco and Eric Yap have this idea that will a lot of Filipinos debate again.


The three solons are proposing to change the international gateway of the country’s current name of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to “Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Pilipinas” through House Bill No. 7031.

The three reasons out that “NAIA is the international gateway of the Philippines, being the biggest and largest international airport in the country. As such, there is a need to identify the same as belonging to the Philippines.”

“With the proposed name, the airport will easily be identified as the international doorway of the country, in view of it being in Filipino language and branding it as the international airport in the Philippines,” they added.

History of the airport’s name


Previously it was called the Manila International Airport, before it was changed to Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

It was during the presidency of Corazon Aquino the country’s international gateway was changed by virtue of Republic Act 6639, which was enacted without executive approval, in honor of the late senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino,Jr. who was assassinated in the said airport last August 21, 1983 after returning to the Philippines from his self-imposed exile in the United States of America (USA).
