THE government will push through with the privatization of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Transportation Secretary Jaime Bautista has announced.
“We have worked with the Asian Development Bank for the preparation of the terms of reference for the privatization of the Manila International Airport,” Bautista said during a briefing Wednesday.
He said he hopes the terms of reference (TOR) will be ready by the first quarter of 2023 “so we can entertain proposals from interested parties.”
Included in the TOR is the rehabilitation of NAIA, which Bautista acknowledges is overdue.
One of the improvements is to allow public utility vehicles to service passengers, especially in Terminal 3, which caters to domestic flights.
