New Manila Airport Chief Wants To Rename NAIA After NoyNoy

Monreal toured NAIA yesterday and was briefed on the changes that need to happen in order to remove the airport from the list of the world’s worst.

Among the fixes needed include collapsing ceilings, power outages, flooding, stinky bathrooms, long lines and overcrowding, extortion schemes like the ‘laglag bala’ and airport taxi problems.

“It will take a several months before we can correct all these problems,” Monreal said, “but it can be done.”

However, Monreal said that he didn’t want NAIA’s problems identified with the new administration of President Duterte, so he has recommended that the airport name be changed temporarily to that of the previous president.  “After all, these problems started or became worse during the past administration,” he said.

“Once NAIA is taken off the list of the world’s worst airports, the permanent name change (back) to Manila International Airport can be implemented,” the airport chief said.
