Online campaign to rename NAIA back to MIA to remove ‘jinx’ rolls on social media

  • An online campaign to rename NAIA back to MIA has been rolled out on Facebook
  • The campaign is slowly drawing the attention of the online community
  • Facebook users said NAIA should shake off its jinx by reverting the airport to its old name

MANILA, Philippines – A campaign on Facebook requesting to rename the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) back to Manila International Airport (MIA) is slowly gaining ground among online users.

It is not clear who started the campaign but Facebook users have been sharing posters recently; demanding that NAIA be renamed back to MIA.

One of the widely circulated posts read:

Do you like this idea? from NAIA back to MIA (the original name of the airport that represented our country) – MANILA INT’L. AIRPORT 

  1. Back to original MIA – the famous Manila Intl Airport (world class and no1 in ASIA)
  2. Retain as NAIA – Ninoy Aquino International Airport (worst airport in the world)

Another important thing, our airport needs improvements and change the management..etc. Our airport (MIA) was one of the best airports from 1970s until 1987… We can make it one of the bests again.

Originally named Manila International Air Terminal, the country’s main international gateway was moved to its present location in 1948 following the Philippine independence.

The original structures including the present location of Terminal 2, runways, taxiways and the control tower were built in the 1950s.

A terminal building for international passengers was inaugurated in 1961, but a 1972 fire caused severe damage to the original terminal building; prompting the government to build a slightly smaller building in its place that would later become the international terminal. (Click here to read more)

  2. Change the name we all know appearances are what matter more than substance! Heh. It isn’t a jinx morons, it’s the combination of apathy and incompetence. The people are apathetic. Sure they moan a bit but they never force any real change. The folks running the airport are morons with the IQ of a potato.

    The ONLY reason this is coming up is b/c of bad press. Again, when all your care about is appearances all you’ll ever do is put a fresh coat of paint on a pile of shit.

  4. Hope this will pass. Manila International Airport is perfect. No offense to the Aquino but it seems that the aquino family won’t stop naming buildings, streets, schools after there’s. Enough already. They’re not saints! Not even a good example to us youth.

  8. Nararapat lang na ibalik sa pangalang MIA ang paliparan dahil yon ang tunay na pangalan. At bakit ba NINOY AQUINO INTERNATION AIRPORT. Ano ba sinoy at ano ang nagawa sa bayan ng taong yon. Dapat alamin ang katotohan kung anong klasing mga tao sila nakipagsabwatan sila sa u.s at sa malisiya laban sa pilipinas Kaya ang Saba di na nabawi sa malisya dahil sa bugok na ninoy pera ang mahalaga sa kanila ganon din sa asawa at anak na pangulo ngayon nakipagkasundo din sa malisya BBL naman bilyon di ang involve. Ang nanay nag pagamit sa kano para di matuloy ang neuclear sa bataan kaya heto tayo ngayon nag durusa. Patay na sila pero ang iniwan nilang.maling disisyon heto.nagpapahihap sa sambayanang pilipino.
