Local transport


There's no direct train connection with the airport, but there are two stations nearby: the Manila Light Rail station Baclaran and the train station Nichols. It's proposed to extend the so-called yellow line of the light rail network to the airport.

Car and bus

The airport is situated 7 kilometers south of the center of the Philippine capital. By rental car you can reach the airport from the city center via the South Luzon Expressway. The way to the airport is clearly signposted. Keep in mind that traffic in the Philippine capital is often very busy.

Several bus services connect the airport with different destinations in Manila. Some buses stop at all terminals, others only at Terminal 3. So-called jeepneys also run from the airport to the city and to the light rail station Baclaran (see Train).

Car rental Manila Airport

There are several car rental companies present at Manila Ninoy Aquino Airport. International ones such as Alamo, Avis, Budget, Europcar and Hertz, but also less known ones including Nissan Rent-a-Car, Pacific Blue and Sunshine. You can find the counters of the rental companies in the Arrivals Hall.


At Manila Airport you will be approached by people looking for customers for their 'taxi'. We advise to ignore these requests. You'd better take an official taxi. You can book a taxi at a ticket kiosk. A ride to Manila's center costs about 200 pesos and takes, depending on traffic, 30 minutes to more than an hour.

Airport Parking

There are open-air parking lots at the three international terminals. There's a fixed rate of 35 pesos, irrespective of how long you park your car. To leave your car at night you need to pay 50 pesos per night, but for security reasons you first need to report this with security. There's a parking garage near the new Terminal 3.
