Ninoy Aquino International Airport, or Manila International Airport, is one of the largest and busiest of Asia. The airport handles the bulk of international travel coming in and out of the Philippines via its capital city, Manila, and services approximately 33 million passengers per year. It is located seven kilometers south of Manila proper, and shares control over inbound and outbound flights in the Manila area with Clark International Airport; the latter, however, caters mostly to low-cost budget airlines.

Manila International Airport was and remains a military base; first established in the 1930's by the United States government, it has steadily grown over the years into one of Asia’s most important transportation hubs. In 1948, the airport began servicing small commercial flights, and did not take off until 1981, when the first Terminal was opened for operation. Terminal 1 handles all international flights with non-Philippines airlines, Terminal 2 services only Philippines Airlines flights, and Terminal 3 handles all types of international flights. Terminal 4 is reserved for domestic flights. Airport expansion has not caught up with the sharp increase in passenger traffic, leading the Filipino government to invest heavily in the modernization and expansion of the airport’s infrastructure; Terminal 1 alone is receiving a 1 Billion Peso government aid package.
Take advantage of your car hire Manila Airport
Given Manila International Airport’s close proximity to the capital, your rental car will give you quick and easy access to the many sights and attractions the city of Manila has to offer. Manila is renowned for its delightful food, top notch restaurants, and myriad of shopping opportunities 24/7. The bustling city has a cosmopolitan feel to it, and enjoys a rich cultural mixture of Filipino, Spanish, Chinese, and American backgrounds. While in Manila, you should not miss the San Agustin Church; built in the latter half of the 16th century, it was the only building left intact after the destruction of Intramuros in WWII. Its grand facade conceals an ornate interior filled with objects of great historical and cultural value.
You can also take your rental car to the Island of Palawn, a long sliver of land which stretches from Mindoro in the northeast to Borneo in the southwest. Awe-inspiring seascapes and colorful marine and wildlife await you here. Located in the center of the island is Puerto Princesa, the culinary capital of the island. Along the northern part of the island you will be able to explore a maze of uninhabited islands for a true island experience. The southern tip of the island is a favorite spot for adventurous souls: you can go snorkeling, island hopping, or trek through the rugged landscape past wild, primordial jungle-covered landscapes.
