List of airports in the Greater Manila Area

There are currently two airports in the Greater Manila Area with scheduled passenger service: Clark International Airport and Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA); however, the majority of passenger traffic goes through Metro Manila's NAIA, which is the Philippines' busiest airport and major hub. Subic Bay International Airport, although classified as an international airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), has yet to host any commercial airlines.

Proposed airports

There is a proposal to develop the Danilo Atienza Air Base located southwest of the metropolis at Sangley Point as the new international gateway for Manila. The Philippine government has previously recommended the closure of the NAIA airport due to capacity issues.[1] Danish construction firm Rambøll Group A.S. is leading the project study started in August 2013 which calls for the reclamation of 50 hectares offshore of Sangley Point and the development of a 50-million-a-year airport terminal with two runways.[2]
