NAIA : Terminal 1 to Terminal 4 transportation

Hi,

I will be arriving at Terminal 1 by Jetstar Airways and after 3.5 hours I have a domestic connection from terminal 4 on Zest Airways. Can you please suggest the possible mode of transport from Terminal 1 to Terminal 4? We are 5 people and luggage. Budget is not much of an issue but time may be, as flights are not that far apart.

get the coupon taxis that are color white with huge blue color numbers on the side of the body. Get the Mitsubishi adventures or the Toyota Innovas which are minivans and can seat 7 people including driver.

I thought Zest was still suspended.

Regardless, they were suspended for good reason so I would choose another airline if I was you.

Big Jim suspension was lifted a while ago. Hopefully their performance will be much more improved.

Yes, hopefully.

In regard to coupon taxi. They have not been needed much lately, since the introuction of yellow airport taxis, but in the past, I have had good service from Nissan.

Their webiste is here, if you would like to contact them for a quote in advance

Yellow taxis are sedans. They won't fit as they are 5 people with luggage.

Ok. This is bit new. I booked Zest thinking that being part of Air Asia it will be reasonably safe. Thankfully this is my only flight on Zest during the trip.

there are airport bus or mini bus serving all terminals. They are usually white. Ask around as the loading bay differs from one terminal to another.

terminal 4 may be the oldest of the terminals, but had a flight there a week back and it seems to be the cleanest of all.

if you are travelling light and a little adventurous, you can take the baclaran bound jeeps and it will pass by in front of terminal 4. Fare is just 8 pesos. If traffic is light, this will just take a few minutes.

for taxis, as a Filipino, I tend to avoid them and take them only as a last option. You can take the metered yellow airport taxis.

the link provided by bigjim explains what coupon taxis are. it also shows a picture of how an innova looks like. thats the one you should look for, it will fit 5 of you plus luggage. do not look for the yellow metered taxis as these are cars or sedans. you will not fit in 1 car.
