NAIA Airport consists of four passenger terminals:
- NAIA Terminal 1 (NAIA 1) also known as the "Ninoy Aquino Terminal", serves almost all the international flights. It has west gates 1-7 and east gates 9-15. The terminal has an area of 73,000 square meters (790,000 sq ft). It was completed in 1981 and is the second oldest terminal at NAIA (after the Old Domestic Terminal, now called Terminal 4), with a design capacity of 4.5 million passengers per year that was later expanded to 6 million passengers.
The terminal currently serves foreign carriers operating in Manila, except for those in Terminal 3 (All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific, Delta Air Lines, Emirates, Etihad Airways, KLM, Qantas, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, Turkish Airlines and United Airlines). It also serves Philippine Airlines flights to and from Canada (Toronto and Vancouver) and the Middle East, except Dubai flights.
- NAIA Terminal 2 houses international and domestic flights of the country’s flag carrier, Philippine Airlines or PAL. The Terminal 2 (NAIA-2), also known as the Centennial Terminal, has an area of 75,000 square meters (810,000 sq ft), and is located at the Old MIA Road. It began construction in December 1995 and was inaugurated on May 1, 1999 and began operations in 1999.
Terminal 2 is exclusively used by Philippine Airlines and PAL Express for both its domestic and international flights. It is divided into two wings: the North Wing, for international flights, and the South Wing, which handles domestic operations. It currently has 12 jet bridges.
- NAIA Terminal 3 serves the international flights which are not handled in NAIA Terminal 1 as well as some domestic flights. Terminal 3 (NAIA-3) is the newest and largest terminal in the NAIA complex. Construction started in 1997. Since construction, the terminal has been at the center of legal battles, red tape, and arbitration cases in both the United States and Singapore, as well as technical and safety concerns which delayed its opening several times.
Terminal 3 is built on a 63.5-hectare (157-acre) lot that sits on Villamor Air Base. The terminal building has a total floor area of 182,500 square meters (1,964,000 sq ft) and a total length of 1.2 kilometers (0.75 mi). A four-level shopping mall connects the terminal and parking buildings. The parking building has a capacity of 2,000 cars and the outdoor parking area has a capacity of 1,200 cars. The terminal is capable of servicing 33,000 passengers daily at peak or 6,000 passengers per hour.
A 220-meter-long (720 ft) footbridge that opened in April 2017, known as Runway Manila, connects the terminal with Newport City. The bridge contains moving walkways and can accommodate about 2,000 persons at any given time.
- NAIA Terminal 4 hosts flights from local and regional carriers. Terminal 4 named as Manila Domestic Passenger Terminal, and still known as the Old Domestic Terminal, is the oldest of the four existing terminals, having been built in 1948. It is host to all domestic flights within the Philippines that are operated by Cebgo, among others.
There are no jet bridges and passengers walk to and from the aircraft or are occasionally bussed. Twenty-six check-in counters are located in the terminal. The departure hall has the seating capacity for 969 people at a time. Several food stores and a book and magazine stall are also available. Five baggage carousels are located in the terminal while domestic airline offices, banks, restaurants and a grocery store are also located right beside the domestic passenger terminal.
The Domestic Terminal is on the old Airport Road near the north end of Runway 13/31. An old hangar has since been annexed to the terminal.
There are 24-hour Airside Shuttle Buses between terminals every 15 minutes. To use the service, passengers are requested to clear customs and immigration first and possess a flight booking or a boarding pass.
On the other hand, Philippine Airlines has its own transfer service between Terminals 2 and 3.
