The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has been named as one of the world’s most improved airports, according to a survey conducted by the London-based aviation research firm Skytrax.

Based on the report, NAIA was ranked in the 10th place in terms of improvement “on the relative year on year quality performance by all airports featured in the World Airport Survey” during the 2018 World Airport Awards.

Among those who made it to the list are the following: Fiumicino Airport (Rome, Italy); Perth Airport (Australia); Calgary International Airport (Alberta, Canada); Taoyuan Airport (Taiwan); and Athens Airport (Greece).

Also on the list are Nadi International Airport (Fiji); Montreal-Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport (Canada); Sheremetyevo International Airport (Moscow, Russia); and George Bush Intercontinental Airport (Houston, Texas).

During a press briefing, Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) General Manager Ed Monreal expressed his gratitude to those who supported NAIA in its journey to being better.

“Their (passengers) testimonies serve as inspiration for us to believe that change is not impossible even in the midst of trials,” he said, adding that cooperation among the passengers and MIAA employees greatly contributed to the improvement of the airport.
