NAIA Flight Operations During the Papal Visit
"We are open to flight operations on the arrival and departure days of His Holiness Pope Francis but operations will be subject to certain limitations," said Jose Angel Honrado, MIAA General Manager.
The major roads around the NAIA complex will be closed to vehicular traffic on the following days.
With the closure, NAIA can only be accessed through South Superhighway, Bicutan, Sucat and Alabang roads. NAIA Terminals 3 and 4 will be isolated as a result.
Given these constraints, the airport chief sought the suggestion of the airline companies since the expected impact of the closure will be on their operations. A series of consultative meetings with local and foreign air carriers were held where the body agreed to suspend arrival of flights in the following manner:
Departure operations will however proceed for those flights with the corresponding aircraft on ground before the effectivity of the road closures.
Also present during the consultative meetings were DOTC, CIAC, CAB, CAAP, PNP, Immigration, Customs, OTS and the MMDA.
"We shall be providing shuttle buses to transport departing passengers with flights in NAIA Terminals 3 and 4 because these Terminals will be completely inaccessible from the usual routes. Meanwhile, NAIA Terminals 1 and 2 can be reached via Bicutan, Sucat, Alabang through Ninoy Aquino Avenue," Honrado explained.
The MIAA will use Parking B in NAIA Terminal 1 as staging area for passengers. From this point, the shuttle buses will bring the passengers to NAIA Terminals 3 and 4 via the Airside road network.
Before the road closure hours, NAIA Terminal 3 departure and arrival lobbies will be closed to non-passengers. MIAA highly encourages the "drop and go" system to give wellwishers and those picking up passengers ample time to leave Terminal 3 and not get caught in there when the road closure begins.
MIAA encourages airline passengers who have flights in January 15 and 19, 2015, to contact their airlines or their travel agency to discuss their revised flight schedules. During the consultative meeting, the Civil Aeronautics Board assured the airlines that they cannot be held liable for any delay or cancellation of flights because the situation is beyond their control. The MIAA also urges those with flights departing on these days to come much earlier to the NAIA so they can reach their respective Terminals before road closure hours.
IPSC Integration Moved
September 29, 2014, Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Upon representations made by Cong. Roy V. Seneres of the OFW Party List during the DOTC budget deliberation last September 26, 2014, the integration of the International Passenger Service Charge (IPSC or better known as Terminal Fee) has been moved from October 1 to November 1, 2014 to give more time for affected passengers, especially those exempted from IPSC payment.
Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya agreed to the deferment, to adequately informed about the mechanics of implementation, said MGen Vicente Guerzon , Jr., MIAA Officer-in-Charge. MIAA General Manager Jose Angel Honrado is on official trip abroad.
The integration of the IPSC will be implemented simultaneously by all airlines worldwide and shall also cover passengers transiting Manila to any destination point. The entire process will go through a transition period and is expected to be fully implemented by October 2015, when all tickets purchased/issued prior to November 1, 2014 shall have been flown. Under the scheme, the services of the air carriers will be engaged in the collection of the IPSC through its inclusion in the airline ticket.
The scheme shall recognize and honor all exemptions mandated by law. These are Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), Muslim pilgrims endorsed by the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF), athletes endorsed by the Philippine Sports Commission and others authorized by the Office of the President. Exemption at the point of sale shall be subject to the presentation of an exemption certificate duly issued by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) or the MIAA. Children ages two years and below are also exempted from the IPSC.
We expect no further deferments come November 1, Guerzon said in closing.
