Paolo Duterte Backtracks, Proposes NAIA Be Renamed MIA

DAVAO CITY,  Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao  Bureau) – President Rodrigo Duterte’s son, Congressman Paolo Duterte had earlier proposed to rename the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Pilipinas (translation: International Airport of the Philippines), but many are pushing back.

Netizens are demanding that NAIA revert to its original name. International pilots have also complained that it would be very difficult for them to communicate with  Manila’s flight control tower if the airport’s name was in Tagalog.

So Duterte backtracked and agreed to return NAIA to its original name — MIA…

Marcos International Airport.

Lost in translation.
