First, there was the MIASCOR lounge at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) TerminaL 1. Then came the Sky View Lounge, operated also by MIASCOR, at NAIA Terminal 3 for international departures. What’s in common? Free lounge access for all Citibank Platinum and PremierMiles card holders.
Not bad. Consider it your ROI on those scratches on both your card and head by due date.
This is good news to those traveling on all international flights departing from NAIA 3, especially those that have moved from NAIA 1 such as Singapore Airlines and ANA. Regardless of your ticket class, you’re all enjoying the same perks in the Sky View Lounge.
You really can’t complain — everything here is for free. Light meals, sandwiches, cereals, fruits and an assortment of soft and hard drinks, juices and coffee and tea are all served buffet style. There are comfortable couches in both sections of the lounge that offer group or individual seating. It also has a separate shower area for those who may have skipped bath because of an early travel to the airport. It also has a small conference room and a working station for last-minute tweaks to that needed PowerPoint presentation.
Location: After getting your passport stamped at the immigration area, walk straight to where the elevators are. Proceed to the second floor then make a right — that entire strip is for the airline lounges (KrisFlyer, etc). At the end of that strip is the SkyLounge. Simply present your Citibank Paltinum or PremierMiles card for free access.
