MANILA – The rehabilitation of Terminal 2 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is expected to be completed by the end of this month, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said on Friday.
In a Facebook post, the DOTr said the rehabilitation project is already 98.10 percent complete and involved major architectural, functional, and operational works to enhance passenger movement for both international and domestic flights and both departure and arrival.
“Slated to be completed by the end of January this year, the rehabilitation project aims to provide the air-riding public with a much-improved service and an air travel experience,” the agency said.
In February 2019, Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) General Manager Ed Monreal said the rehabilitation project was slated to be complete by March 2020 but was delayed after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
The rehabilitation of the NAIA Terminal 2 started in late October 2018 with a winning bid amount of PHP601 million to improve the whole terminal and to prepare it for the terminal realignment plan.
According to the MIAA, the rehabilitation of the NAIA Terminal 2 involves an architectural facelift, replacement of damaged floors, and restoration and chemical cleaning of stained floor finish in the arrival and departure areas. (PNA)
