MANILA, Philippines — The operations at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) Terminal 3 will remain “business as usual” despite ongoing electricity maintenance activities, airport authorities told air passengers on Sunday.

According to the Manila International Airport Authority (Miaa), the upgrade of the electric systems in Naia Terminal 3 were “carefully planned” to ensure continuous operations, particularly during peak hours.

“The electrical upgrade activities from April 2 to May 28, 2024, shall not in any way impede the processing of passengers and baggage and shall have no disruptive effect on flight operations,” Miaa General Manager Eric Ines was quoted as saying in a statement.

“There will be light and air conditioning in major parts of the Terminal building during the day,” he said.

The airport chief added the electrical upgrade activities were timed after the last flight and away from the terminal’s peak hours of operations.

“Based on the schedule, replacement activities will only take from a short 15 minutes up to a maximum of three (3) hours, but will not extend into the departure or arrival times of the first flight of the day,” the Miaa’s statement read.

“The window hours for maintenance work will be from 12:01 am to 3 am,” it pointed out.

The south side of Terminal 3 will be affected by the maintenance activities, resulting in an observable reduction in lighting and air conditioning in the hallways and lobbies from the 1st to the 4th level of the terminal, staircases and certain offices located at the 2nd and 3rd levels.

Also affected is Terminal 3’s surface parking and multi-level parking, with some elevators and escalators located south of the terminal becoming inoperative during maintenance hours, Miaa added.

It also informed the riding public that generator sets are on standby for any “contingency during the conduct of maintenance works.”
