Logistical Arrangements

Travel and transportation


Ninoy Aquino International Airport is the main international gateway to the Philippines. The airport is located between Pasay City and Parañaque City, about 7 kilometres south of Manila and south-west of the Central Business District of Makati.

WHO will assist all representatives on their arrival at Ninoy Aquino International Airport and will provide transport to the designated hotels. If representatives are unable to give advance notice to WHO of their expected arrival time and are therefore not met at the airport, they can take the “Yellow Airport Metered Taxis” available at the main arrival area. The fare is 70 pesos (flag-down rate for the first 500 metres) plus 4 pesos for every 300 metres—roughly 250 pesos to any of the designated hotels.

For easy identification upon arrival at the airport, representatives are requested to wear the lapel labels provided along with this booklet. Luggage tags also have been provided.

It is important for representatives to send to the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific their arrival and departure details so that airport transport can be arranged. Online registration is available at: http://www.wpro.who.int/rcm/register.aspx


WHO will provide transportation to representatives scheduled to depart from designated hotels to Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The departure time from the designated hotels to the airport will be posted at the WHO Desk located at the lobby of each hotel.

Upon reconfirmation of flights, travellers will be given an embarkation card (for international travel only). The completed embarkation card should be submitted to the officer at the Immigration Counter at the airport. All passengers embarking for international travel will be levied terminal and security fees of 750 pesos payable at the airport.
