MANILA, Philippines — The Manila International Airport Authority (Miaa) on Thursday said it is expecting around 1.2 million passengers for the so-called long weekend covering the  “Undas”  and the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections.  

Malacañang earlier declared the October 30 elections, as well as All Saints’ Day  (November 1) and All Souls’ Day (November 2), as special non-working holidays.


The Miaa said a daily average of 120,000 to 130,000 passengers in a 10-day period starting October 27, with a surge in departures in the first three days and arrivals in the last few days.


“‘Yun ‘yung nakikita nating pattern dito, and that’s what we are preparing for,” Miaa Senior Assistant General Manager Bryan Co said in a press conference.

 (That is the pattern we see, and that’s what we are preparing for.)

 “We can assure our riding public that Miaa and DOTr (Department of Transportation) are working with private stakeholders and the government entities to make sure that we have the required number of personnel, equipment, as well as the process enhancement in place to make sure that Undas 2023 would be one of the best experiences of our passengers, compared to the previous years,” Co added.

Security and Emergency Services Assistant General Manager Manuel Gonzales said that they have established security protocols for any kind of threat and security situation that may arise.
