NAIA NO MORE?: Teves files House Bill to rename NAIA to Ferdinand E. Marcos International Airport


This will be a political issue for sure that can be a source of endless debate as to who is correct.

In the opening of the 19th Congress Negros Oriental Rep. Arnolfo Teves Jr. files House Bill 610 to rename the Ninoy Aquino International Airport into “Ferdinand E. Marcos International Airport.”

The filing seems to be timed because the current Chief Executive just happens to be the son of the late president - Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.

It may be recalled that a few years ago a petition was filed by Atty. Larry Gadon respectfully asking the Supreme Court to declare as “null and void” Republic Act 6639 which was passed in 1987 and named the NAIA.

“With Republic Act No. 6639 being patently illegal, our main airport’s name should be reverted to Manila International Airport (MIA),” read his petition.

Gadon is of the opinion that the naming of NAIA is in violation of the Sept. 21, 2007 board resolution of the National Historical Institute (NHI), formerly the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), which set guidelines for the naming of public structures, among others.

The petition argued that the guidelines state that consultations should be first, that the place should be named after a person who is already dead for 10 years, and that “no public place should be named or renamed after a person when questionable propriety might arise from the said act.”

“MIA was renamed to NAIA in November 1987. That was only 4 years from the death to the renaming – which violated this cited guideline,” the lawyer pointed out.
