How to get to a NAIA terminal from NAIA Airport Skyway
Depending on where you enter the NAIA Expressway or what entrance ramp you use except NAIA Rd, heading to your terminal destination is no issue as signs are there to guide you. Nevertheless, below are directions to each terminal of NAIA from all entrance ramps of the airport expressway:
From Macapagal Blvd - Follow the expressway to NAIA. Your lane will merge to the one coming from PAGCOR Entertainment City as you turn left. Then Cavitex ramp will merge up ahead above Roxas Blvd. Now this is where you must pay attention as the expressway forks to "NAIA Terminal 3" first. So if your destination is NAIA-3 follow the overhead sign. Next fork is for "Terminal 2" and "Terminal 1", respectively. The airport expressway forks to "Terminal 2" and to the "Terminal 1". Actually, the expressway goes in straight direction to T-2 and it forks to the right towards T-1. So, choose your lane there.
From CAVITEX - Cavitex entrance ramp merge to the airport expressway and it follows/ the directions to Terminal 3, Terminal 2 and Terminal 1, respectively, exactly as given in route from Macapagal Blvd. So, it's basically the same.
From SLEX - Terminal 3 comes first, just take the lane under the overhead sign that reads Terminal 3. For Terminal 1 and 2, the expressway goes straight above Andrews Ave and turns left toward NAIA Road where it will merge to the one coming from Macapagal Blvd and PAGCOR Entertainment City. If your destination is Terminal 1, your going right on the fork up ahead while the straight downward ramp is headed to Terminal 2.
