Ninoy Aquino International Airport (IATA code: MNL, ICAO code: RPLL), formerly known and still commonly referred to as Manila International Airport, is the airport serving Manila and its surrounding metropolitan area. Located along the border between the cities of Pasay and Parañaque, about 7 kilometers (4.3 miles) south of Manila proper and southwest of Makati, it is the main international gateway for travellers to the Philippines and serves as a hub for Cebgo, Cebu Pacific, PAL Express, and Philippine Airlines, as well as a base for Philippines AirAsia.

Officially, the airport is the only airport serving the Manila area. However, in practice, both this airport and Clark International Airport, located in the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga, serve the Manila area, with Clark catering mostly to low-cost carriers because of its lower landing fees compared to those charged at NAIA. In the recent past, there have been calls for Clark to replace this port eventually as the primary airport of the Philippines.

In 2019, the airport handled a record-breaking annual passenger traffic of 47,898,046, with 122,902 international and 154,628 domestic aircraft movements. It will be complemented by two new airports, the New Manila International Airport, which is located in Bulacan, to serve both Metro Manila and Central Luzon, and Sangley Point Airport, which is located on a reclaimed land in Cavite City. After the completion of the two new airports that will serve Metro Manila and its surrounding regions, NAIA will be made into a domestic airport also catering to general aviation, maintenance, cargo, air taxis, business flight, and state/diplomatic visits.
