Philippine Airlines (PAL) has proposed to develop a new passenger terminal next to its existing hub at the Centennial Terminal 2 in Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila, Philippines.
The new terminal, which will be built with an investment of PHP20bn ($400m), will help airport to expand capacity and improve services for passengers.
Planned to be constructed on a 16-hectare land adjacent to NAIA Terminal 2, the new terminal will have a floor space of 89,000 sq m that can accommodate 12 to 15 million passengers per annum.
Upon becoming operational in 2020, the terminal will be able to accommodate 12 to 17 wide-bodied and single-aisle aircraft.
Additionally, the building will also include multi-level parking for 1,000 cars, a new cargo terminal and ground service facilities.
PAL president Jaime Bautista said: “We also need government to continuously invest in building, developing, enhancing and upgrading airport infrastructure, not just for NAIA but all throughout the country, as PAL and other airlines out up more flights and open new routes in our race for a thriving economic future.”
