Going to three terminals of Ninoy Aquino International Airport or NAIA presents problems for most of the commuters especially if they don't know what route of jeepneys or buses to take. Good for the old terminal 1 that its location is along the route of Metro Manila buses. One can get off the bus exactly at the old airport.
In NAIA-2, you need to walk a little bit far to get to its ground. NAIA-3 is the most hard to reach by commuting among the three terminals because of its location.
FLASH! City buses from north of Metro Manila now go direct to NAIA 3 and 4. Read the latest article on how to go to terminal 4 and 3 in one bus ride from your location, go to City Buses Route Direct to NAIA-3 & 4 from North of Metro Manila
Thanks to NAIA Shuttle Bus, going to and from two terminals of our premier airport, NAIA-2 and NAIA-3, has never been this convenient for commuters. You can get in and out of these terminals even if you're not an arriving passenger. In Terminal 1, only arriving passengers can ride the shuttle bus but commuters going to the old airport can still get there by riding the shuttle bus.
IMPORTANT UPDATE (Sep 12, 2015): NAIA Shuttle is now called Airport Loop. The bus in the photo below no longer exists. They are replaced by Airport Loop buses. Also the location of new Airport Loop inside Pasay Bus Terminal has moved. The unloading spot in Terminal 3 is moved, too. So, I have created a new article that will guide you in locating and identifying the Airport Loop buses. In the new article, added are complete list of unloading areas and their locations along the entire route of the loop. Two unloading areas are now designated inside Newport City. You have to read the new article as it is fresh. Nevertheless, directions in this article are still usable in general so my recommendation is to read this and the new published article. Here's the link: Airport Loop: Where to Ride & Alight to and from NAIA Terminals.
If you're going to a NAIA Terminal to catch your flight, make sure you have enough time allowance. In addition to 3 hours requirement for international flight and 2 hours for local flight for a flying passenger to be at the airport before the time of the flight, an added 2 hours allowance is needed if you're going to NAIA-1 via Shuttle Bus to make up for the waiting time both in Bus Station at Pasay Rotonda and NAIA-3.
