STILL 8TH WORST IN ASIA BUT...

NAIA no longer among world’s 10 worst airports


The Ninoy Aquino International Airport is no longer among the world's ten worst airports, according to the online travel site Guide to Sleeping in Airports.

The NAIA, however, remains the eighth worst in Asia.

Five out of ten of the world's worst are from the continent.

"Ever-contentious Manila International Airport seems to have permanently shed its title of Worst Airport in the World, which it held steadily from 2011 to 2013," the website said in explaining the NAIA's latest ranking according to its readers.

The website cited the airport's rehabilitation efforts that have "helped decongest and clean up Terminal 1, and the introduction of things like the Wings Transit Lounge in Terminal 3 have helped make things more comfortable, albeit for a price."

"That said, things like leaking ceilings in Terminal 1 and collapsing floors in Terminal 2 show there is still room for improvement. Passengers remain annoyed by the poor customer service, the long queues, the sub-par food selection, the lack of restrooms and the crowded seating areas," the website said.

"There is definitely a long way to go but we're thrilled to see improvements come along bit by bit," it added.

The NAIA was the fourth worst airport in 2014.

It was the world's worst in 2011, 2012, and 2013.
