U.S. says Ninoy Aquino International Airport security measures inadequate – envoy

The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) found that the Philippines’ Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is implementing inadequate security measures, the Philippines’ ambassador said.

Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel “Babe” Romualdez wrote in a Philippine Star column on Sunday, December 23, that the DHS will send a notice about “security issues” at NAIA after a 90-day assessment done by the DHS’ Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

“DHS has determined that the security measures implemented at NAIA are not adequate as dictated by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and will continue to closely monitor the security situation at the airport as well as coordinate with MIAA (Manila International Airport Authority) and OTS (Office for Transportation Security) regarding next steps to include development and implementation of corrective actions, and scheduling of additional security assessments,” Romualdez said.
