US lifts travel notice against NAIA

The US Department of Homeland Security has lifted its security advisory against the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Philippine Airlines in return congratulated the Philippine government for its success in improving the security posture at the main gateway.

The US authorities lifted the travel advisory and recognized the significant improvements in the implementation of security measures at NAIA, in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.

PAL said that as the flag carrier and largest international airline operating at the NAIA, it will continue to cooperate with the Department of Transportation and Manila International Airport Authority to sustain the positive developments so that passengers will benefit from a safe and secure gateway airport in their journeys to and from Manila.

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin K. McAleenan earlier said he ordered the lifting of a December 2018 public notice regarding poor security conditions at NAIA.


The US Homeland Security in its travel advisory in December 2018 said NAIA "does not maintain and carry out out effective security consistent with the security standards established by ICAO.

"After months of direct engagement with the United States, the government of the Philippines has made significant improvements to the security operations of MNL. Both the Manila International Airport Authority and the government of the Philippines civil aviation security authorities have demonstrated they are willing to work toward sustaining those improvements," the US department said.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. cited the help of US Ambassador Kim Sung for the positive development.
