LATE DICTATOR PRES. MARCOS, SR. DID NOT BUILD MANILA AIRPORT

Bill to rename NAIA after Marcos based on false information

The construction of the NAIA – at the time to be known as the Manila International Airport – began during the time of President Manuel Roxas in 1947. Before that, the original facility was used as a United States Air Force base.

The airport’s first international runway and taxiway finished construction in 1953 during the Elpidio Quirino administration. The elder Marcos assumed office in 1965, or 12 years after the airport was fully operational.

The Manila International Airport was renamed after the late former senator Benigno Aquino Jr. in 1987 through Republic Act 6639. Aquino was assassinated at the airport in 1983, during the presidency of Marcos. – READ FULL STORY in Rappler.com
