NAIA Cited as “Worst Airport” Anew
Ringo | On 07, Oct 2014
The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) was once again ranked as one of the world’s worst airports.
US website Cheat Sheet said the NAIA is among the 10 worst airports citing poor facilities, incapacity and impolite staffs as among the reasons why the site is worst in the world. It also cited an article from CNBC proving of it’s incapacity.
“This Manila-based airport struggles with 32 million passengers who uses the its facility each year. That shouldn’t come as a shock, though, considering it only has the capacity for 6 million passenger, according to CNBC,” the article said.
The article however noted that the plans of the government to build a new airport is quite promising.
“Travelers complained about the airport’s rundown facilities, impolite staff and officials, and long wait times. There is, however, some good news for this Philippine airport: CNBC writes that the government there is planning to build a new one, which it hopes to have up and running in five years,” the article added.
