THE Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) on Wednesday apologized to the public for the inconvenience they suffered after parts of the air conditioning system at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 went out.

We are experiencing warm temperature in some parts of NAIA Terminal 3 due to the ongoing repair of our central air-conditioning system. We apologize for the inconvenience,” MIAA General Manager Eddie Monreal said.

Monreal explained that the problem of air-conditioning system at the NAIA Terminal 3 had already been addressed, however, it will take more time to fully resolve the issue since the purchase for some of its parts, including a brand-new air conditioning unit, passes through a law mandated bidding process.

Monreal noted that the MIAA already ordered new ones and it is in the process of procuring stand-alone air-conditioning units to ensure that temperature at the affected areas is maintained at a comfortable level. He added that the MIAA understands how inconvenient it is to endure warm temperature inside the terminal.

Our engineering team is on top of the situation and is doing all it can to improve the cooling system at the affected areas,” Monreal stressed

It will be recalled that before Monreal took over the airport helm last year, the air-conditioning system of Terminal 3 is already in a bad condition.
