P2P Bus Service between NAIA T3 and Clark Airport


For passengers heading outside Manila, Point-to-Point (P2P) buses are operating between the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA T3) and Clark International Airport (CRK). This will be a direct airport to airport service only (no stops within Metro Manila will be allowed).

Schedule information provided by Genesis P2P Bus Service, but may be subject to changes. Please check directly at www.phbus.com for any updates.  Passengers may inquire at the PAL help desk stationed at the arrivals area of NAIA Terminals 1 and 2  on directions to the P2P bus stop at Terminal 3. 


Please note that P2P bus capacity will be limited to at most 23 passengers per bus because of strict social distancing rules, as mandated by the health authorities for everyone’s safety.




Arriving passengers at NAIA T1 who are connecting to a PAL international flight out of T2 shall go through a Security Check at T1 and, once cleared, proceed to the designated airside bus gates where an airport shuttle bus shall take them to T2.  Once there, they shall proceed to the Transfer Desk and then to the departure gates for their

onward international flight. (The process is similar for a connection from T2 to T1.)



Please note that a community quarantine is in effect in Metro Manila until April 14, 2020.  Please check with notices and updates announced by the government authorities for guidance on the quarantine rules and restrictions.


Arriving international passengers who are not residents of Metro Manila may exit the Metro Manila area to go to their homes outside the metro region, provided that they present, at the Metro Manila border checkpoints, identification cards and proof of international travel and arrival.




If you are departing on an international flight from NAIA at nighttime, we strongly recommend that you plan to arrive at the concerned NAIA terminal no later than 8 PM.  This is to avoid inconvenience and any questioning at checkpoints just in case local government units in parts of Metro Manila enforce an 8PM to 5AM curfew as part of the COVID-19 community quarantine situation.

Travelers from outside Metro Manila may enter the Metro Manila area to take international flights departing from Manila (NAIA) to overseas countries, but will be required to present proof of their CONFIRMED flight itinerary at the Metro Manila border entry checkpoint, showing that their departure is within 12 hours of entry.



Please note that this is a developing situation and there is a high probability of further changes, as government authorities and other stakeholders continue to work on various implementing arrangements in relation to community quarantine and public mobility restrictions. PLEASE STAY POSTED FOR FURTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS. We will update you on relevant changes, if any.

We assure you that your health and safety is always our primary concern.  

Thank you for your kind understanding and cooperation in this challenging time.
