Airport personnel prepares for the holidays.
Authorities at the airport are now preparing for more visitors over the holidays.
On Friday, Maria Elben Moro, the deputy executive director of the Civil Aeronautics Board, urged travelers to take safety steps and buy tickets in advance.
In a public briefing, she stated, “We would like to urge them to take measures as (the coronavirus sickness) is still there, so maintain respecting health and safety protocols.”
Moro also suggested they buy their tickets ahead to have more options and take advantage of lower prices.
According to the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), the country’s primary entry point had about 3 million people overall in August or 77% of pre-pandemic levels.
Compared to last year’s period, domestic traffic at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has increased by 109 percent, or 1.94 million passengers, MIAA reported on Friday.
On the other hand, at 1.06 million passengers, international passenger traffic continued at a higher than 50% of the pre-pandemic level.
The government’s vaccination program, according to MIAA, has increased travelers’ confidence and is to blame for the rise in passengers.
To ensure the right deployment of equipment and staff resources to ensure the efficient handling of flights, consultations were made between the MIAA administration, airlines, and other aviation stakeholders before the holidays.
Managers of all NAIA terminals were given instructions to check on the condition of essential facilities and take emergency action if necessary.
To avoid crowding and queuing in important locations, operations and security teams were instructed to make continuous rounds of the airport’s grounds. They were also instructed to step up foot patrol to dissuade minor offenses. The level of perimeter patrol will also be increased.
The engineering team was tasked with making sure that all necessary equipment and infrastructure were on hand and that the backup systems are prepared for deployment.
In the meantime, Ma. O Aplasca, the Office for Transportation Security administrator, asked travelers to examine their belongings before departing for the airport.
He advised passengers to be aware of forbidden goods, such as weapons, pointed objects, poisons, and other dangerous substances.
Passengers can approach airport staff members and police units at the aid stations for assistance.
