IN line with the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) along with the directive of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to provide necessary assistance to frontliners, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) launched its free bus service to ferry airport employees to and from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
The free bus service is intended for organic personnel of the MIAA and its service providers as well as other airport workers employed by the airlines and groundhandling companies and their service providers .
A test run of the southbound route was able to service employees from Las Pińas and nearby Cavite. MIAA frontliners from these areas now have a convenient means to go to the airport terminals to perform important tasks such as operation of the boarding gates, conveyor systems and security systems, among others.
The Southbound route pick-up time is at 5AM/ 8AM/ 1PM/ 4PM/ 9PM/ and 12MN. Pick-up point is at the Zapote flyover going to NAIA Terminal 1, MIAA Administration Building, NAIA Terminal 2, then NAIA Terminal 3.
For the return trips to Zapote, bus leaves at 7AM/ 3PM/ 11PM. The shuttle does the rounds of the complex beginning from Terminal 3 to the MIAA Administration Building and finally to NAIA Termina 1 before heading to Zapote.
