BY mid-August the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminal 4 will go all domestic with the transfer of international flights to a much bigger facility.

According to Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) officer-in-charge Vicente Guerzon Jr., by August 15 Air Asia Zest international flights will be moved to the bigger NAIA terminal 3 from terminal 4.

Also set to transfer to Terminal 3 are five Cebu Pacific-Tiger Airways Airbuses.

From NAIA Terminal 3, seven small aircraft offering 20 domestic flights will move to Terminal 4.

The move, drafted two months ago, is expected to reduce confusion among passengers as to which terminal they are supposed to go.

Likewise, Guerzon said that the move would maximize the use of runway 13/31 for small aircraft arriving at or departing from the NAIA terminal 4.

The 400-hectare NAIA currently has two perpendicular runways: primary runway 06/24; and secondary runway 13/31.
