MANILA, Philippines — The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) on Tuesday implemented a four-hour power outage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 to replace a faulty power cable.

Miaa said the power outage would begin at 7am and last until 11am to allow for the replacement of medium-voltage power cables and vacuum circuit breakers at two of the terminal's substations.

“The outage is not expected to impact flight operations,” Mia said.

The Miaa generator sets will provide temporary power to the AirAsia offices, boarding gates 101-112, moving walkways and elevators on the second and third international levels, offices on the first floor and food and retail outlets in the terminal's south concourse.

If the power restoration work cannot be completed within four hours, Miaa will implement another power outage for the same period on Wednesday, August 9th.

“We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this planned limited power outage, which is an inevitable outcome of our efforts to repair and upgrade the T3 electrical system,” MiAa director Brian Ko said in the same statement.

He assured the public that MIAA would fulfil its commitment to complete the repairs and upgrades of the electrical system as soon as possible.

The repairs were made as part of efforts to improve power supply at NAIA Terminal 3 following multiple power outages since last year.

The first occurred in September 2022 when a power outage disrupted operations at Terminal 3 airport, followed by a power outage on January 1, 2023 that paralyzed the country's entire air traffic control system.

Then, on May 1, 2023, Terminal 3 experienced another power outage due to an electrical current fault, and on June 9, 2023, a mistake made during the electrical audit process caused another power outage.
