Airport Transfer


I have just read about the horror of airport transfer in Manila and am stressed whether I would be able to connect my flights successfully.

I will be reaching Manila Domestic airport (T4) via Tigerair Philipines at 10am and my connecting flight would be at Terminal 1 at 12.50pm (departure time). No check-in baggages for both flights. Is this schedule feasible?? both flights are on a Sunday.

Thank you.

If everything goes like clockwork, you will be able to make it.

However NAIA often has congestion like runway, airspace and even gates.

So it really depends on your luck sometimes.

So just hope everything is fine.

3 hours is generally enough time. 4 would have been better.

If you are very certain that you will arrive on-time at Terminal 4 then it is almost 100% sure you will make your flight at Terminal 1.

Why not stay in Manila overnight and do some sightseeing.
