At last, a bit of good news

The Philippine Star

They were all so guapo in their barongs last Monday in Malacañang, but more than the fashion thumbs-up was the fact that the NAIA rehab project is finally underway.

We have suffered too long, been embarrassed too often by our airport. The litany of problems besetting our gateway is too long to list, from the major to the petty, from technical to political. Sobra na, tama na!

The turnover will be in six months (September), at which time Mr. Ramon Ang has promised new surot-free seats for waiting passengers. Then will also start the more major changes to the airport, all three (or is it four?) terminals, plus the runways and other parts of the complex. The changes will for sure not be to everyone’s liking, but fortunately this is a private sector endeavor so hopefully there won’t be cases filed before the ombudsman, and I hope the courts, including the Supreme Court, will not give in and issue TROs.

More than the physical changes, I hope this overhaul will extend to the people working and doing business there, i.e. the syndicates and unscrupulous characters who have for too long been making airport operations their private cesspool. To these people, shape up or get out. It’s a new day dawning, you can’t hide in the darkness any longer. Sobra na, tama na! – Sandee Tan-Salazar, Pasig City
