MANILA, Philippines — Philippine Airlines (PAL) flights arriving from San Francisco will temporarily be transferred to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 starting Tuesday (December 8).

According to PAL external communications head and spokesperson Cielo Villaluna, all San Francisco to Manila flights of the flag carrier will be using Terminal 1 instead of the NAIA Terminal 2, which is basically PAL’s base of operations.  Passengers of other arriving international flights will still disembark at the NAIA Terminal 2.


She explained that the change, which would take effect from December 8 to March 24, would ease the effects of the peak travel period.  The move to use both Terminals 1 and 2, she said, would reduce passenger congestion at Terminal 2.

Villaluna has assured passengers of the affected SFO-MNL flights PR105 and PR115 they will be advised of the new terminal assignments through email and onboard announcements.


PAL passengers, who are arriving at NAIA Terminal 1, with connecting flights at Terminals 2 or 3 will be assisted by the flag carrier’s ground staff upon disembarkation.

They will be guided by PAL’s ground staff to the NAIA Terminal 1 transfer area where shuttle buses for Terminals 2 and 3 are waiting.

PAL’s airport staff will accompany and continue to assist the arrivals from San Francisco en route to the other terminals for their domestic or international connecting flights, according to Villaluna.

Over 746,000 arriving and departing international and domestic passengers passed through the NAIA terminal 2 in December last year, compared to 743,000 in 2013.  SFM
