NAIA Ranked as 5th Worst Airport in Asia But Cited Some Improvements


The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has been ranked by the travel website "The Guide to Sleeping in Airports" as the fifth worst airport in Asia but cited some improvements in the airport under the Duterte administration. The ranking is considered as an improvement compared to the Aquino administration wherein the airport was dubbed as the Worst Airport not only in Asia but in the World.


According to "The Guide" some of the complaints against NAIA include the "tanim bala" scam which was already solved by the Duterte admin, power outages, bad air conditioning systme, lack of seat and complicated terminal transfers. These complaints were already answered by the Duterte admin and made some measures to solve the problem unlike the previous administration who allegedly did nothing during the past six years.

Despite the shortcomings of NAIA, the website acknowledges some improvements in the Philippines' main gateway, survey responders took notice of "cleaner bathrooms, more chairs and some general organization of taxis in front of the terminal would help make life here a lot more manageable."



The improvements at the formerly known as the "Worst Airport in the World" was made only during the first 100 days of the Duterte administration which is very impressive compared the past six years under the Aquino administration. NAIA was ranked as the Worst Airpot in the World during the year 2011 and 2013, and was also named Worst in Asia during the year 2012.

Topping the list of this year's Worst Airport in Asia is Uzbekistan's Tashkent International Airport, followed by Nepal's Tribhuvan International Airport, Pakistan's Bacha Khan International Airport, and Afghanistan's Hamid Karzai International Airport.
