NAIA is famously known for being difficult to transit through, especially if your flight leaves from a different terminal and is a national embarrassment. However, airport shuttle buses now transport passengers between terminals. The fare is ₱20 and runs every fifteen minutes. Shuttle buses depart from the arrival area of all terminals and use main airport access roads, so make sure you have a visa if you require one to enter or transit the Philippines as you will be entering the Philippines if you will be connecting onto a flight departing from another terminal.

Passengers who are connecting to an Airphil Express flight from a Philippine Airlines flight and vice-versa may avail of a free airside shuttle service between Terminals 2 and 3.

If your flight departs from the same terminal, transfer counters are available before immigration at all terminals. Passengers who transit through Manila and do not transfer terminals do not need to undergo entry procedures and are exempt from paying the terminal fee.

NAIA is accessible by bus, taxi, train, jeepney and shuttle bus.

  • Taxi: Yellow airport taxis have a stand at the arrival area of all terminals. The flag down rate is ₱70, with an additional ₱4.00 surcharge for every 250 meters. At Terminal 3, you can hail a white city taxi from the departure area: just take the escalator or elevator up to the departures hall and exit to the departure ramp. Coupon taxis are special taxis with fixed rates according to the destination: inquire at the information desk for rates. Taxis taken from the airport are usually a lot more expensive than those hailed outside. If money is more important to you than time, walk to a public road and hail one there instead (and make sure they know where you want to go and that they will use a meter before you get in).
  • Bus: Four city bus routes connect Terminals 1 and 2 with the rest of Metro Manila: Grotto-NAIA, NAIA-Malanday, Bagong Silang-NAIA and NAIA-Lagro. There are also two city bus routes between the airport and Bulacan: NAIA-San Jose del Monte and Norzagaray-Sapang Palay-NAIA. These buses have a “MIA/6-11/Tambo” signboard posted on the dashboard, and generally serve points along Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) and Commonwealth Avenue. Fares usually start at ₱10.
  • Train: The airport is served by two train stations: Baclaran LRT station near the Domestic Terminal, and Nichols railway (PNR) station near Terminal 3. Both stations however are 2-3 kilometers away from the airport proper. Jeeps which serve Terminal 3 and Villamor Airbase stop near Nichols station.
  • Shuttle bus: A shuttle bus connects Terminal 3 to the Taft Avenue MRT station. The fare is ₱20 and departs every 15 minutes.
  • Jeepney: Jeepneys which serve Terminal 3 will have “NAIA Terminal 3” or something similar written on the side route panel. Jeepneys which serve Terminals 1 and 2 will have “MIA” written on the route panel.
