NAIA Terminal 3 to Reopen on July 8, 2020


More than 3 months after it paused operations, Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 will reopen on Wednesday, July 8, the MIAA announced via a note on their Facebook page.

The terminal will resume international flight operations for the following airlines:

Does this mean Filipinos can fly out already?

Nope, not so fast! While the announcement that NAIA Terminal 3 will reopen soon can be seen as a “return to normalcy”, know that travel restrictions are still in place for Filipinos who are living inside and outside of the Philippines.
