PAL shuttle at Ninoy Aquino Int'l Airport?

17 posts in this topic

Hi. I was told by a Filipina that after landing on an international flight in Manila, say on Hawaiian Airlines, and then connecting onto a domestic flight using PAL, that PAL has their own shuttle that will take you to their Centennial terminal. I just wanted to find out if this is true or not? Thanks to anyone who knows! :biggrin_01:

Here is what the PAL website says about it's free shuttle

http://www.philippineairlines.com/products_and_services/free_transfer_service/free_transfer_service.jsp

Hawaiian Airlines is not on the list

 

There is an airport shuttle for all terminals, not specific to PAL

 

It is also supposed to be free. I have used it several times in the past and it was free but people using it more recently have said they had to pay P20.

 

Something else to keep in mind, if you have limited time between flights, do not wait for the shuttle. Just jump in a yellow airport taxi. If you are not checked in 45 minutes before departure, you will be denied boarding.

Assuming that you will be landing at Terminal 1, which is where all of the international flights land except for PAL (unless things have changed recently), when you arrive you will go through the immigration checkpoint where your passport will be stamped.

 

From there you will continue to the baggage carousels to get your luggage (be sure to get a free luggage cart as you enter the baggage area).

After getting your luggage, you will go through customs where they may ask you a few questions and probably waive you through. When you get through customs, you exit into a lobby area through the double doors. In the lobby area there is a tourism desk and some other information booths. Also there are pay phones, ATM machines, and banking / money changing booths.

 

When you get to the lobby, there are several sets of doors leading outside. Inside the lobby, go right to the last set of doors leading outside to the street. Go out these doors and then go to the right. Do not cross the street. The free shuttle buses that go between the three airport terminals load there. Tell the driver that you need to go to the PAL terminal (which is Terminal 2). The shuttles run every few minutes and are hassle-free. (In the "good old days", they didn't have shuttles and you had to flag down taxis to get between terminals -- what a nightmare!)

 

The PAL terminal is shaped like a "V". As you enter the terminal, the domestic terminal will be on the right-hand side of the V and the international terminal will be on the left-hand side of the V. There's a snack shop and ticket office at the corner of the two legs of the V.

 

I hope you have a great trip!

PS: The "PAL (Philippine Airlines) Terminal", "Terminal 2", and "Centennial Terminal" all refer to the same terminal building. That building services only international and domestic PAL flights.

the website says the shuttle stops at 11pm but it was still going well past midnight when I used it last October.

 

as above, when you walk out the door, it's fifty meters on your right same side of the street.

 

it's free, but some passengers - including Filipinos - tip the driver 10 or 20.

 

it stops first at the PAL terminal and then Terminal 3.

It is also supposed to be free. I have used it several times in the past and it was free but people using it more recently have said they had to pay P20.

 

It was free when I used it a month ago on December 31, 2010. I don't know if things have changed since then.

Hi. If I take an airline not included on PAL's codeshare, like Eva Airlines, will the shuttle driver allow me to board? Do I have to pay? Thanks so much.

yes, they don't ask anybody for any evidence at all that they are even taking a flight. It's not exclusively for PAL customers anyway, as it goes on to T3.

      Ive tried looking on the web, but no luck so im asking you guys:
      Has anyone been to Kawasan falls over the last week? 
      Or at this time last year? maybe not as helpful..
      I'm planning on taking the missus, and her brother and his missus on Saturday
      Keen to know if anyone has any idea about the water situation at the moment?
      Here in Toledo its been very dry the last 2 weeks, (YAY i can get in and out of our village without driving under a river) but im not sure this matters at all when considering kawasan falls.
      I guess year on year stats are irrelevant also as weather here is so unpredictable and there are no yearly weather patterns.
      I havent been there in 2 years, and this will be my 4th trip. I never get tired of that place. I dont care how many people are there, its beautiful and should be shared.

      Remember!
      Foreigners living in the Philippines can get Philippines, also single with tourist visas.
      The requirement is that you are "permanent tourist", in other words that you live here . This can be proved by lease contracts and stamp in your passport.

      But when I signed up, I used only my passport and ID card from BI (ACR).
      This had to be copied and submit with my application (PhilHealth Member Registration Form).
      Then I paid for 6 months, 900 pesos.(150 per month now)
      Everything took about 40 minutes.

      Joker and Harley Quinn love nothing more than creating havoc for Batman. But when their alone… they turn into a couple… just like everyone else. Yeah, Joker and Harley might act all tough but they bicker. Oh they bicker.

      Im hoping this is the right subforum for this.
      I'm looking for feedback from those who have been here a while and are used to Cebuano people, particularly services like vehicle maintenance and home maintenance. Im starting to get very, and visually, frustrated with the brains in some of the locals, not just so called mechanics.
      A neighbour has seen that i am always testing electrical things with my multimeter in my jeep and on my brother in laws little motor. Today my GF said, to me, BABY THEY WANT TO USE YOUR TESTER!!!
      So i love to help, and i went over to the guys who were standing around the crappy RUSSI motor and they pointed at the ignition module. as if to say, TEST IT! Now, i have no idea how to test this, but i thought, rather than saying NO, i will check other things, like how many volts are going to it. 
      5 Volts. This is a 12 volt battery putting out 5 volts,, its fecked.
      So i said, BAGO BATTERY.. OR CHARGE.
      But then i asked them to turn the ignition on, and they pointed at the ignition wiring harness which had all been taped together, so that everything is constantly powered ON.
      This infuriates me with rage, as it is now so impossible to explain to them how incredibly stupid this is, as it is on a completely different level of stupidity than I've ever had to deal with, and my bodies internal fuse for dealing with things diplomatically, just exploded.
      I walked away. They are beyond assistance, at least with my Bisaya vocabulary.
      Now i think about it, they may possibly believe that if the motor isn't running (after being kickstarted) that it isn't using the battery.

      And my question is, am i justified in feeling so god damn angry that i cant have an intellectual conversation here?
      Or am i being a cockhead?
