Ninoy Aquino International Airport


NAIA Terminal 3

Terminal 3 is the newest and largest terminal in Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The terminal handles both domestic and international flights.

Originally designed to accommodate 13 million passengers annually, Terminal 3 managed nearly 23 million passengers in 2023, significantly exceeding its intended capacity. While the international wing continues to operate efficiently, the domestic wing experiences crowding due to the high volume of passengers.

Terminal 3 serves as the hub for Cebu Pacific, where it operates all its domestic flights (except those under its subsidiary CebGo) and international flights. Cebu Pacific is the only airline conducting domestic flights from Terminal 3. Additionally, several foreign airlines utilize this terminal for their international operations.

The opening of Terminal 3 faced numerous delays due to various disputes and controversies. Initially planned to open in 2002, the terminal partially opened to the public in 2008 and became fully operational in 2014.
