Free Wi-Fi Access For Passengers

Travelers using the four airport terminals in Manila can now enjoy free wireless-fidelity (WIFI) connectivity following the official launch of Globe Telecom’s free Internet service at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Tuesday.
The free WIFI enables both departing and arriving passengers in all airport terminals including the domestic airport, to work online, check emails or travel itineraries, and surf the net while at the airport.
The service was launched during simple ceremonies held at the arrival lobby with Globe Telecom officials headed by International and Business Markets Head Gil Genio and International Business Group Head Rizza Maniego-Eala and NAIA Assistant General Manager for Emergency and Security Services Maj. Gen. Vicente Guerzon in attendance.

According to Genio, the free WiFi service will be enjoyed by both arriving and departing passengers at the NAIA Terminals 1, 2 and 3, as well as the Manila Domestic Airport.
The government may relocate some international flights from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 to Terminal 3, once the latter is fully operational to prevent decongestion.
Transportation Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II said that they are planning to relocate 1.5 to 2 million users of NAIA Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 as soon as the remaining 48 percent of unutilized area of Terminal 3 is fixed and ready for use.
The Department of Transportation and Communications (DoTC) is currently in discussion with Japanese contractor Takenaka Corporation for the construction of 23 systems that are lacking in NAIA Terminal 3 to make it fully operational. (Kris Bayos)
Terminal Fee
Short of saying that there will be no terminal fee increase in the near future, Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) General Manager Jose Angel Honrado said Tuesday that any increase in airport fees will be triggered only by specific needs or objectives and added that it will have to undergo the normal process of getting the board approval and public hearings.
