In what has been described as the “new manila”, the terminal has been built on a site which was once home to the Japanese government’s military base and is now home to a hotel, a restaurant and a hotel gym.
The manila terminal will have three flights of stairs, a lounge area, a reception area, an area for guests to stay in, and a small kitchen.
The terminal will also have a separate dining area.
The airport terminal was designed to cater to both domestic and international passengers, and has been completed in two phases.
The first phase was completed in December 2017 and included the construction of the terminal and the installation of air traffic control towers and taxiways.
The second phase was finished in March 2018 and included constructing the airport’s terminal, the new runway, the ground-based taxiways, and the terminal building.
The completion of the first phase has been hailed by many as a “historic achievement” and “a major milestone for the future of the city”.
The terminal’s runway will be opened for international flights in 2019.
The project was approved by the Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte in February 2019.
