    To minimize delays, DOTC wants less flights at NAIA

    MANILA, Philippines - As the summer travel season peaks, the government wants airlines to help decongest Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and minimize flight delays by cutting down on the number of scheduled flights.

    Transport Secretary Manuel Roxas said the runway at NAIA has to deal with 43 flights an hour, way above its capacity of only 36.

    Roxas said the government would have to resort to flight reductions since NAIA no longer has extra space within which to build another runway.

    Expropriating private land surrounding the three NAIA terminals also would cost more and would take longer than expanding existing facilities such as the Clark International Airport, he said.

    “President Aquino has looked at a study several months ago. He said that instead of spending much to reclaim a land it would be better to transfer to Clark because the facility is already there, having two runways,” Roxas said.


    Shifting traffic to Clark however "can't happen if there is no infrastructure," he said, adding that the North Rail is the "missing link to transport passengers from Metro Manila all the way to Clark."

    “We are now reviewing the possibility if we can use other alignment. Perhaps we can use the NLEX alignment,” Roxas said, referring to the North Luzon Expressway.

    May remedyo naman yan. Pag yung incoming international flight brings in int'l. tourist let it land directly to local airport destination. Yun pa puntang Visayas e deretso nasa Cebu. While yun papuntang Mindanao an dyan naman ang Davao airport. Yun papuntang North deretso na ng Clark. No need to bring them sa Manila.

    Mahirap po ata suggestion niyo pag puro local airport. Yung iba kasing airport eh maikli lang yung runways. Delikado mag land pag long-haul yung flights.

    Bobo talaga si Panot. Haha. Tapos ngayon nagbabalak ata sila magkaroon ng rail transit from Clark->Manila. Haha

    Kung hindi din naman t@nga eh. Kapag mas konti ang flights, maapektuhan ang tourism at ang business sector. Obobs talaga kahit kailan!

    Better start now if they want Pnoy to inaugurate that high speed train that will run in the middle of NLEX.

    Kunti naman ang long haul flight going-in and out sa NAIA. Wala na yun Europe (KLM) longhaul. Halos regional flight na lang around Asean country ang natitira. I suggest yun longhaul flight like sa US at Middle East na lang ang gumamit ng NAIA. While yun regional flight around Asean can land directly sa Cebu Int'l., Davao Int'l. upcoming Laguindingan Airport, CDO while sa North can use Clark. Para all passenger going to Singapore/Hongkok & Asean region will use Clark. Then let yun Cebu Pacific/Airphil Express haul back via domestic flight yun tourist who want to visit Manila.

    This will definitely decongest yun NAIA at same time mabago naman ang impression ng mga international visitor na ang pangit ang ating bansa everytime makikita nila sa pag landing yun mga shanties around NAIA.

    Beside wala naman tourist spot at beauty ng ating bansa makikita sa Maynila. Halos 95% labas ng Metro Manila di ba

    nabigla naman ako sa news na ito, di ba promote tayo ng tourism tapos babawasan ang flights ng mga airlines.....ano un....over yata....anyways...sa tingin ko na best solution nila para ma decongest ang flights sa NAIA, why not the DOTC makes an appeal with the airlines to adjust their flight timing. Ang ibig kong sabihin ay unahin sa mga domestic flights muna na huwag silang sumabay sa pagdating at alis ng mga international flights. Minsan kasi merong time o araw na sabay-sabay dumarating ang mga international flights, merong ding araw sa airport na kunti lang ang dating nito.

    Buti pa ang mga taxi opertors sa airport alam nila kung kelan maraming pasahero na darating, doon sila nagdaragdag ng mga sasakyan nila sa pila.....

    Mawawalan ng kita ang mga buwaya sa airport natin niyan pag binawasan ang paglapag ng mga eroplano sa ating mga paliparan.

    Madumi na ang isip kung sa madumi, ang pumasok agad sa isip ko ay yung competition ng CEBU PACIFIC at PAL. Dahil COJUANGCO na ang major stockholder ng PAL, NOYNOY administration is stretching its arm to help his "FAMILY BUSINESS".

    Anu ka ba naman Mar, the old PNR alignment to be used by the NR from Kalookan to Pampanga has already been cleared of squatters for years now, pagaari na ng government yun, bakit mo pa gusto maghanap ng ibang alignment? Ang labo mo.

    Government ba ang nagpapatakbo sa operations ng NAIA?

    Kasi kung ganun, parang alam ko na ang future speech ni PNoy: "Let us privatize the NAIA and other airports, makakatipid ang gobyerno kikita pa kami este ang gobyerno, yan lang ang solution sa problemang eto, take it or magtiis kayo sa ganitong sistema, Mar magpa-bid ka na sa mga KKK este private sector na gustong mag-operate ng airports natin".

    Dapat i-retain na lang ang North rail for domestic passengers, gumawa na lang ng bagong high-speed train connecting the airports, my suggestion is use the middle area part ng NLEX at yun ang gawing separation sa pa north and south bound, mas ok yun.

    this is a dumb idea!

    Good job PNoy! This is a great idea. The genius Makoy and GMA never thought of this.

    Mukhang magiging north korea na tayo, plano na ba ng gobyerno na i-isolate ang bansa sa rest of the world? hahaha...

    Brownout, now lessen the flights, mukhang paatras na ang takbo ng bansa natin.

    Sabi nga ni D!ck Gordon, our country is a victim of the future, not the incoming one, ang nangyari, parang nag-time travel tayo biglaan from 80s to the present time, parang hindi gumalaw ang oras natin dito habang nadevelop ang rest of the world at hindi tayo nakasabay. Kaya victim of the future tayo. Eto ang epekto after ng Marcos era, walang naging presidenteng nangarap ng maayos na buhay at bansa after ni Makoy. Naging stagnant tayo at paatras ang pag-iisip.

    Lumalakas na ulit din ang kapangyarihan ng religions at karamihan ng tao eto na rin ang sandigan.

    Welcome back sa medieval and dark ages. Baka mas malala pa, ihanda na ang mga palakol na bato, baka umabot pa tayo ng STONE AGE
