Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2020

It's a good thing that CRK T2 is almost done...it can take some of the load off of NAIA in the meantime. They just have to get cracking on the new parallel runway for CRK to be a truly good alternative airport..... This is something I am curious about and would like to understand the reasoning arou...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

I personally advocate the retention of NAIA (at least until the 2030s as per JICA), but whether NAIA is open or closed, I'm fine as long as they retain Terminal 1. A caveat here :alert: ...JICA analyses and recommendations usually point to projects whose billion-dollar loan proceeds dictate those b...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

Sangley and Bulacan in particular are still within the proper distance from city to airport. Sangley’s dry run showed that you can get from MOA to Sangley in less than 20 Minutes on a fast craft. You cannot get from MOA to NAIA in 20 Minutes in regular traffic, even with the NAIA expressway. Not to...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

The anti-NAIA talk over at SkyscraperCity is getting really tiring. They're really insisting on NAIA being closed down and even saying that (to paraphrase) they want to "end the Aquino name". Regardless of your political leanings (and I'm not trying to be political here), but I can't help...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

Personally, I believe Metro Manila needs at least two airports, and with multiple airports, Manila is positioned well to take advantage of the ASEAN Single Aviation Market. Clark will serve its own regional catchment and has the massive potential for growth on its side. Agreed. I prefer to think of...

Personally though, I agree with the idea of keeping NAIA as a budget airline-only airport similar to Bangkok's old airport. LTP and perhaps even the cargo flights of FedEx, DHL, and others can stay there.


Maybe also be a purely- or mostly- regional hub like Seoul Gimpo or Taipei Songshan.

Out of curiosity, seems EK would like to fly the A380 on DXB-MNL. Is there any specific reason they cannot?? Technically, they can, as demonstrated by a one-off service a few years ago. However, there are a few limitations. Some taxiways would be blocked when taxiing to/from T3 because of how tight...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

So now we have 60m at NAIA, 45m at Bulakan plus whatever CRK can handle - ? 8m. With 48m passengers annually,even allowing for growth, this strikes me as overkill. If both are retained, who will use where ? Foreign carriers might move to Bulakan, but I don't see either PAL or Cebu Pacific moving wi...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

One thing that's kind of hard to understand is why the folks over at SkyscraperCity seem to be rather insistent on shutting down NAIA, instead of embracing a multi-hub strategy for Manila (i.e. turn NAIA into something like LaGuardia or London City, Bulacan as the main international hub ala JFK or ...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread - 2019

The JICA documents seem to have placed Tutuban and Alabang as the termini (or perhaps the "other" termini), actually. Though if not the terminus, then Blumentritt is certainly still an important junction between the North and South lines. Not to mention the LRT connection.

While they'd likely end up with the 777x since their older 777s are reaching their retirement, and that it would be easier to transfer the crew to 777x, It's also very likely that they might end up with the A35K since Airbus seems to appeal to the Philippines more than Boeing for some reason (I love...

Re: Philippine Aviation Thread 2018

As much as I'm against closing NAIA (for reasons such as how much jobs depend on it, and how there are still in-city airports like Taipei-Songshan staying open), it would be interesting to see what it would be redeveloped into. I think a Central Park is the best one because MM desperately needs one....

I haven't heard much from them except for a couple of articles that briefly mention Cebu Pacific's ATR freighter conversion program. Has it been quietly cancelled?
