MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino made a surprise inspection of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 on Thursday, shortly after his arrival from Bacolod before 6 p.m.
The President inspected the main arrival lobby of the NAIA Terminal 1 and suddenly proceeded to the ladies’ comfort room.
President Aquino first asked the duty janitress if there is someone using the female rest room, and after learning that there was none, the President went inside the female comfort room.
Dante Basanta, NAIA terminal 1 manager, explained to the President the present condition of the 30-year-old airport and the major renovation being undertaken at the terminal.
Basanta also showed the President the newly-renovated flooring at the arrival area and sleeping lounge open for rent for incoming and outgoing passengers.
The President was also briefed by Transportation and Communications Secretary Mar Roxas on the planned P1-billion face lift of the entire NAIA Terminal 1 complex.
Basanta added that the whole arrival area will be expanded, and a multi-level parking will be built to accommodate the growing number of visitors and passengers.
Aquino lauded the airport authority on its planned renovation despite the criticism that the international gateway has been receiving from foreigners.
The NAIA was tagged the 5th most hated airport by CNN’s Jordane Rane.
It was also rated the world’s worst airport by The Guide to Sleeping in Airports website.
The President’s surprise inspection lasted for about 30 minutes.

I’ve been following your blogs on NAIA airport, and I agree that it could well be one of the worst airports (although someone I know claims it isn’t, yet) in the world. In the 16 years that I’ve lived abroad, I’ve travelled home at least 13 times. Following are my observations: 1. The washrooms are horribly disgusting and are in dire need of makeover, toilets, fixtures and all!  And why are they tucked away in the back where you have to open doors to get to the dark hallway, and again open another set of doors to get to the… Read more »

Isnt’ it a little strange that we get so worked up over restrooms, demanding that they be spotless, dry, immaculate, germ-free & pretty.  Especially if we don’t do the cleaning.  This is where we dispose and wash off our dirt, in more ways than one.  And then we consider the cleaning of tolets as the lowest of the low in the totem pole of housekeeping tasks.  [Reply]APRR Reply:November 12th, 2011 at 2:52 AMI want clean restrooms because sanay ako sa clean restrooms.

I want clean restrooms because sanay ako sa clean restrooms. I clean my own restroom at my home (I employ no maids, no housekeeper) . Is it too much to ask for a decent and clean toilet lalo na before or after a long flight? Kahit hindi na germ-free restrooms, basta decent and hindi ung namamakipak ang ichura. Bakit ikaw ba ayaw mo ng malinis na kubeta?

It’s such a shame that one of the most hated airports shares the same name as one of the country’s most well loved (at least during the elections) president. Jusko naman, fix that up PNoy if only to save your dad’s name.

Ay sows he “lauded airport authority”?! Ano to? Laru laruan lang? LOL You must be kidney! LOL

and please… it doesn’t stop there… paltan lahat ng nangongotong dyan sa airport.. at lahat ng kahiyahiyang personnel ng airport… sa totoo lang tinubuan na sila ng ugat dyan… I refused to make lagay dyan eh pero the thought to be asked blatantly na maglagay lang nakakairita na!

It doesn’t take a genius to make things work… they know what to do, they should do it… wag mag bulagbulagan pwede?

Lauded? Ano ang kapuri-puri?  May nagawa na ba sila? Dios mio! Sorry to compare pero mas maganda pa ang public restrooms along the interstate highway where I live than the NAIA restrooms. My point is  tama na ang dakdak, papogi at kissing-ass, gawin na ang dapat gawin. Make NAIA presentable,efficient, comfortable at least, and provide clean decent restrooms and not a petri dish for God knows what kind of microorganisms lurking sa banyo.  And yes, bakit walang official statement man lang or any thing with regards to who are the contractors, the architects, engineers etc?

Finally! About time! I’ve been picking up clients every now and then. Well, most of them are males but oh well … they’re not as happy as when they’ve been to others, as they shared. *sad*

ummm if PNoy will use Krissy’s gaudy gold furniture as peg, NAIA will look decent for him 🙂

“Aquino lauded the airport authority on its planned renovation despite
the criticism that the international gateway has been receiving from
foreigners.”

Congratulate them when those plans are turned into reality. Ang gobyerno hanggang puro plano lang.
