MANILA — Major upgrades for the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 is set to be finished next month, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) said Wednesday.

According to the DOTC, completion works will pave the way for the transfer of five airlines from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 by August this year.

These airlines include Singapore Airlines, Delta, Emirates, Cathay Pacific, and KLM Airlines.

It will also help decongest Terminal 1 and allow more flexibility in the on-going rehabilitation efforts.

On the other hand, upgrades for the Terminal 1 rehabilitation project is scheduled for completion by January 2015.

Right now, Terminal 1 is undergoing retrofitting, architectural works, and improvement of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection facilities.
