Philippines has World’s Worst Airport

It’s like a slap on the face to every Filipino especially for the government that the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 (NAIA-1)  is now being regarded as the WORLD’S WORST AIRPORT.

Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 (NAIA-1) lifted from

Let me first share to you some of what I’ve read from webpages online about the NAIA 1.

This is the very first which I read a week ago from a travel blogger’s blog. “Let’s start with the international airport. Ninoy Aquino International is exactly the same as it was all that time ago; the same awful green lino when you arrive, the same over-crowded Departure Hall, nowhere to sit if your check-in desk isn’t open. Once through security you find the same down-market shops, toilets that don’t work or are “under repair” and very few F&B places.” Philippines – Manila – Awfully Disappointing

The second that I read was from a website on airports, Sleeping In Airports, wherein Manila, Philippines ranked first as the worst airports in 2011. Some travelers commented and posted on the site mentioning the “thieves and extortionists dressed in uniforms” and even said that “airport employees are the worst money hustlers around”. These, perhaps, are ample words uttered for me to ask if are they technology-wise enough to use electronic pickpocketing devices? But not that much, I guess.

And the most recent, is from the Philippine’s leading telecommunications webpage article, From 5th worst, NAIA-1 now world’s worst airport.

I could not say anything more but this is really a very shameful truth. I guess, this is now a call for the government to act something on this.

  1. Hi Gay,

    Sorry to hear that, but its really true. The airport management didn’t do anything about it. So no wonder that airport landed on that survey.

    Thank you much
