The Manila International Airport Authority (Ninoy Aquino International Airport MIAA) and Grab Philippines joined hands today, 15 December 2022, in a bid to improve the transportation service at the NAIA.
MIAA and Grab Philippines leveled up their partnership by dedicating at least 200 units at the airports to address the transport needs of arriving passengers.
The “Airport to Anywhere (ATA)” pilot program can be booked through the Grab mobile app with fixed pricing based on drop off location and no surge charges.
MIAA General Manager Cesar Chiong initiated talks with Grab Philippines in September and expressed elation that the partnership has now successfully brought to fruition.
“We explored this partnership as part of our preparations for the Christmas season. We thank Grab Philippines and the LTFRB for joining hands with us in the interest of our air riding public,” GM Chiong said.
To remark, NAIA’s monthly passenger volume last month has reached 3.1 million or a 229% increase, compared to the figures in the same period last year.
MIAA Management has tapped Grab Philippines to add on to its airport vehicle fleet. MIAA expects the upward trend in passenger traffic to be more pronounced starting 16 December 2022, in view of our arriving kababayans from abroad.
