anong katangahan yan mar? hahaha...
bottomline wala nang kakayahang i-expand ang naia dahil sa daming bahay na nagkalat sa paligid..
wag na tayo mag-aksaya ng pera para pagandahin na yan.. simulan na lang natin magtayo ng bagong airport...
bakit di na lang natin gamitin ang corregidor island at gawin syang isang malaking airport..
si roxas imbes na gumawa ng magandang paraan eh paurong pa ang gusto nya!
Only in the Philippines where the government ask airlines to curtail its business to justify its own incompetence. Hahahaha!
may malabo sa equation:
mag iimbita ng mas maraming tourists.
pero hindi kaya ang load at kailangan na magbawas ng flights.
ang labo. walang direction.
Gordon says plan to reduce flight skeds at NAIA will hamper tourism program
The Daily Tribune
By Conrado Ching
Former senator and now Philippine Red Cross chairman Richard Gordon yesterday criticized the Manila International Airport Authority’s plan to reduce flight schedules at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to decongest traffic on the airport’s runways and described the move as a step backward and curtails the growth of domestic airlines.
“Merely reducing the flights in NAIA to decongest the runways is not the answer. Reducing the flights alone will hamper the country’s tourism program, he said.
He added the government should keep the momentum of growth by fully utilizing Clark and Subic.
“If the government’s goal is to realize 10 million visitors by 2016, merely decongesting NAIA and reducing flights militate against such projection,” Gordon said.
He added the present congestion on the NAIA runways is a dangerous situation and must be promptly addressed.
“This growth spurt in domestic flights is the effect of the surge in domestic tourism and, therefore, government should have anticipated the need to address the kind of congestion we are now experiencing. It is imperative that the government takes full advantage of the synergy of operating three international gateways that will complement each other,” he said.
He refers to Subic, Clark and NAIA, all of which are of international standard equipped with modern aviation facilities.
He said Sangley Point must also be utilized for general aviation. Flights may be distributed among the three main gateways.
According to Gordon, under his watch in Subic, they had 27 commercial flights a week apart from 18 daily Fedex flights. Subic airport has all the modern aviation facilities and equipment and had been used in the past as alternate airport by international carriers whenever NAIA runways are closed and is able to accommodate all kinds of aircraft and wide-body jets.
To date, it is the most modern airport in the country. Distance, he mentioned, is not an issue. With the Nlex and SCTex interconnection, Clark and Subic may be reached in less than two hours from Manila.
Commercial buses are available and may be tapped to shuttle passengers from Manila to Clark and Subic and vice versa. Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and other major cities such as Narita in Japan which is a 90-minute ride to the heart of Tokyo. These countries have all relocated their international airports away from the city.
Besides, the North Railway Project is designed to service the Manila-Clark route and should be fast tracked. Operating the three airports may be harmonized and rationalized to fully benefit from their facilities.
May sense naman solution ni Marimar eh. Pwedeng i-apply yan to reduce the time in getting business permits. Discourage people from starting a business para hindi makadagdag sa hassle ng pagkuha ng business permit.
Think out of the box.
iba talaga magisip si Gordon.. malayong malayo sa mga pretender..
ehem kayo yong pinupuna ko marimar at panot
hindi ba pwedeng ilagay lahat ng domestic flight sa clark?
or mas mainam ilagay sa clark yung international flight para naman di nakakahiya sa mga turista yung bubungad sa kanila sa airport puro squatter..
tutal karamihan naman ng turista di sa manila ang tungo nyan eh.
^ all airport terminals share the exact same runway, btw. all the airport terminals are built around the same runway.
In less than 4 years, the $2.4 billion international terminal @ McCarran in Vegas was built and will soon commence operations beginning June 27, 2012.
Metro Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport T3 started planning and construction nearly 15 years ago and yet it is still not fully operational. Wake up Philippines!!!
Here is a media kit of T3 courtesy of McCarran International Airport. I just love the world class public art pieces. Bravo Clark County!!
The issue against DOTC was its decision to rehabilitate the old NAIA 1 terminal and operate 3 terminals simultaneously ignoring the real problem of having only 2 runways available for takeoff and landing for all flights, international and domestic.
Creating a runway in the nearby reclamation area is the modern way to expand airport facilities. It is also safer for landing strips to be surrounded by water instead of unwanted landmark buildings. A short tunnel for trains to pass from the reclamation sites to the terminals would also be less expensive to financially undertake.
Moreover, the modernization of the airport system should not neglect the technological breakthroughs in airplane technology. Somehow our Filipino investors including Malacanang failed to grasp the savings that new Boeing commercial planes (Dreamliner) offer. The new plane technology that uses composite material is not only lighter and fuel efficient, but takes less time to land and take off. The Japanese ignored the Airbus launching of the A380 Super Jumbo in an effort to herald the birth of a new era in avionics. The engineering wisdom and savvy financial sense of the Japanese made them decide to "refleet" to the Boeing plane since it would also save billions in airport construction. The wear and tear or existing facilities would be longer with less loading. Also Less airport demanding aircraft permits them to create airports in new destinations on a tighter budget.
bawasan ang nabyahe sa edsa para ma decongest ang trapik sa edsa!! wala ng trapik di ba! credit goes to abnoy dahil wala ng trapik!
