NAIA-1 The Second Worst Airport in the World

The Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 (NAIA-1) is the world's second worst airport, according to travel guide publisher Frommer's.

According to an article by USA Today, named New York's JFK Airport Terminal 3 as the world's worst airport, followed by NAIA-1 in Manila. said it based the list of worst and best airports on cleanliness, services, on-time departures, navigation and the ease of getting to and from a city's center.

"(JFK Airport) Terminal 3 is known for endless immigration lines in a dank basement, an utter lack of food and shopping options, three crowded and confusing entry points, and hallways that could have been designed by M.C Escher for vomiting international travelers out onto an underground sidewalk with no cabs available," was quoted by USA Today.

There were no comments made about NAIA 1, which will undergo a renovation this year after it was named the world's worst airport by a website in 2011.

NAIA-1 was the only Asian airport on the "worst list." Other airports considered the "worst" were Newark's Terminal B, US Airways terminal at New York's LaGuardia, Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport Terminal B/C, Amman (Jordan) Queen Alia Airport and Chicago Midway Airport, and Paris' Charles de Gaulle Terminal 3 and Beauvais Airport.
