What’s in NAIA Terminal 4?

Our recent flight back to Davao was with Air Asia, whose flight departures are done in NAIA Terminal 4. When I first read our flight itinerary and saw the assigned terminal, the question in my mind was “Where is Terminal 4??

NAIA Terminal 4

We later learned that NAIA Terminal 4 is the old Manila Domestic Airport Terminal, located along Domestic Road in Pasay City and currently caters to the operations of local carriers including Air Asia (and Cebu Pacific, starting August 15, 2015).

I was expecting a cramped, disorganized terminal that smells and feels old. I was happy to be wrong.

The operations in NAIA Terminal 4 were orderly and the place was not too crowded at all. We were probably just lucky or early, but this I can tell: it only took us 10 minutes to check-in — yes, that is from the time we entered the terminal premises to the time we actually took our seats at the pre-departure area.

Waiting was not a bore, too. The terminal is smaller and simpler than the other NAIA terminals, but it houses the following establishments:

  • Seattle’s Best Coffee
  • Rest n Go massage chairs
  • Papa John’s
  • Smart booth
  • Globe booth
  • Vibes Massage Services
  • Cinnabon
  • Muhlach Ensaymada
  • Goldilocks
  • Christian Ventures Trading (reading materials)
  • RJCZ Commercial (phone accessories)
  • Cafe France
  • Vin-Vin’s Cafe
  • Mister Donut

It also has free public WiFi, a phone charging station and clean comfort rooms.

  3. Hello,
    Firstly thanks for your article giving a lot of useful information. What is the price range of food in Terminal 4 and where do you recommend us to have a meal?

      Hi Ezgi! It depends on what kind of food you prefer to eat. Here are some options that I remember at the top of my head: rice meals (P100-300), pizza (roughly P50 per slice), instant noodles (P50-100), doughnuts / bread (P30-P100). I’ve tried all of these options, and they’re pretty satisfactory for my taste. 🙂

  4. Thank you. This is very helpful 🙂
