MIAA Issues Stern Warning Against Unauthorized Drone Activities Near NAIA

Illegal drones can’t be flown within NAIA’s 10-km radius, says MIAA.

The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) has issued a strong reminder to the public that unauthorized drone activities within the 10-kilometer aerodrome radius of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) are strictly prohibited. This reminder follows recent reports of illegal drone operations in the restricted area.


"Operating drones within this restricted radius without proper authorization poses significant safety risks, including potential collisions with aircraft, which can result in severe damage and endanger lives," MIAA stated on Tuesday. The authority emphasized the critical nature of adhering to the regulations set by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).

In its advisory, MIAA warned that violations of drone operation regulations could lead to substantial fines ranging from ₱20,000 to ₱100,000 and possibly imprisonment. The authority also urged the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious drone activities to local authorities.

"Public vigilance is crucial to maintaining the safety and security of our airspace," MIAA added, highlighting the community's role in safeguarding aviation safety.

Drone operators and the general public can find comprehensive regulations and safety guidelines on the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) section of the CAAP's website.

Ensuring strict compliance with these regulations is essential to prevent potential accidents and maintain the safety of both air travelers and those on the ground.
