MANILA, Philippines—A portion of a parapet wall at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport collapsed Thursday afternoon.

According to the Manila International Airport Authority’s media affairs division, the parapet wall between Bay 14 and 15 fell off around 5:50 p.m. at the ramp of NAIA Terminal 1.

No one was hurt and no damage to other property was incurred, it said.

The area has been cordoned off and cleared of debris, it added.

Last year, a concrete ceiling plaster at the airport also collapsed, injuring two employees.

Since January, the government has been refurbishing the facilities of the country’s premier airport, which was dubbed as among the world’s worst airports by various travel websites.
