The Ninoy Aquino International Airport has received a passing mark from the US Department of Homeland Security after previously flagging security deficiencies in Manila’s premier gateway.

A 2018 DHS advisory directed airlines flying to the Philippines to alert their passengers on the deficiency of security measures at NAIA after finding the airport “did not maintain and carry out security consistent with standards established by the International Civil Aviation Organization.”

Inspectors from the US Transportation Security Administration, which has authority over the security of the traveling public in the US, were “satisfied” with the improved security measures and technology being implemented at the NAIA following the latest round of security audits.

The TSA commended security improvements made by the government to guarantee the safety of air travelers from the Philippines to the US and vice versa, according to the DOTr.
