What to Expect When Arriving at Manila Ninoy Aquino

Manila Ninoy Aquino is just fourteen kilometres from the city centre and a half hour drive if traffic is light. Yellow taxis offer the quickest route downtown but they can be expensive. White taxis can be cheaper, but they are unsanctioned by the airport. Negotiate a price with the cab driver before leaving. Most buses into the city leave from Terminal 3. Jeepneys are extremely cheap, but they can also be very uncomfortable and confusing to understand.

Manila Ninoy Aquino has a not entirely undeserved reputation for being difficult and confusing to navigate. Fortunately, things are improving. A shuttle bus now operates between the four terminals, making catching a connection easier. Nonetheless, the terminals are far apart, so schedule plenty of time between flights. Manila Ninoy Aquino offers all of the amenities one would expect from a major international airport, including restaurants, duty-free shops, banks, currency exchanges, and lounges.
