Manila International Airport Terminal 3 - Cebu Pacific & Philippines Air

Updated on January 20, 2015

Manila International Airport Terminal 3

If you are travelling to the Philippines but your final destination is somewhere outside of Manila, then you will need to find your way to terminal 3 the Domestic airport at the Manila Airport complex and continue with your travels. Flying with Cebu Pacific is a great way to fly to other cities in the Philippines and they have a prominent location within Terminal 3 in the Manila Airport. Leaving the Manila International Airport it is important to first get processed through immigration, find your bags, and get to the transportation area to get a cab over to the other terminal. Due to the large footprint of the airport you will have to take a ride over to terminal 3 to get to the domestic flights.

I prefer to take the yellow cabs, there is a stand when you exit the immigration areas that will take your cab order and tell the driver where you need to go. Inform them that you are flying with Cebu Pacific, Philippines, Air, or any other domestic flight and the terminal location either Terminal 2 or 3, however most flights will be terminal 3. If you are leaving terminal 3 and going back to NAIA Terminal 1 or out to the city of Manila then the cabs will be on the lowever level and there again is a yellow cab stall at the far right side of the terminal exit, when you exit the big doors go to your right to find a cab for your ride. These are metered cabs and the price will tend to be much more fair compared to charges that can appear with other cab services if you are not confident about the situation go with a metered yellow cab and you will get to your destination safely at a decent price.

Terminal 3 is a great airport compared to Terminal one at Manila NAIA. This airport has a modern look and feel along with a better air conditioning system in place so you remain comfortable while waiting for your flight. The entrance and security checks are better arranged in Terminal 3 and the ticket counters are located right as you enter with many different aisles depending on which flight you are taking will determine which section you go to. Terminal 3 at the Manila Airport has a wide range of shops and food vendors located on the third floor of the airport so if you have a long layover in Manila I recommend staying in Terminal 3 and heading over to Manila International Airport for a departure only at the last part of my wait. There is a jolly bee, a pizza vendor, doughnuts and coffee and several other stores with merchandise like clothes and other stuff.

Looking forward to enjoying the great Philippines beaches you will be more than likely flying out of terminal 3 unless you are taking a boat ride to a secluded spot to enjoy the Philippine islands.

Fly with Cebu Pacific from Manila International Airport

I prefer to fly with Cebu pacific the website is easy to operate, you can prepay for your luggage and they have been a pleasure to fly with so far. There plane seats are tight for myself, but generally comfortable and is my choice for a short flight in the Philippines.

Remember when flying in the Philippines each airport has an exit fee that must be paid prior to getting to your planes gate. It is always a good idea to make sure and have some smaller peso bills in order to pay this fee. It depends on the airport a small regional airport in a city like Ozamis is going to be around 20 pesos whereas Manila will be in the several hundred peso range.

      I am flying in from SFO to Manila terminal 2. Flying philippine airlines then flying them to Cebu. So, once there in Manila, I just stay in terminal 2 waiting for my Cebu flight. I only have 1 hr between them. Can I get through immigration and get my bag within 1 hr? Once in Cebu, I then catch a Cebu Pacific flight to Davao. are there any tips about Cebu airport?

      Why most of the passengers who bought ticket at Cebu Pacific have offloaded by the immigration in this terminal 3..why don't you defend your passengers to avoid offloading..and the tickets are no refund no rebooking even these tickets are not promo ticket???

      They didn't the last two times I made the trip from NAIA to Terminal 3, but could have just missed it, but seemed like I was not the only one getting a taxi to the other side when I did so.

      There are no free shuttles from NAIA to Terminal 3? I seem to recall they had them before, at least going to the other domestic terminals. Voting this Up and Interesting.
