NAIA Terminal 1 is simply known as NAIA. By car, it's relatively easy to get to the main terminal of our premier airport which also serves as the gateway to our country. The driving directions to NAIA are the same as the ones bound for NAIA 2. You only just need to turn right onto Ninoy Aquino Ave aka Imelda Ave from NAIA Road instead of crossing Ninoy Aquino Ave which will take you to NAIA 2. Please look at the map below and see NAIA 2 direction (blue arrow) in relation to direction to NAIA (red arrow), then read the directions below the map.
