change flight time, you have to clear immigration and collect bags - 50 mins, go to the transfer desk 10 mins, wait for bus to T3 -jump in as the doors close zero mins bus around the perimeter of the airrport 20 mins - 8 pm arrive and if you have to wait for a bus 8.30.
If you check in online you still need to be at bag drop 45 mins before
Give yourself 4 hoursEdited: 12 October 2016, 22:01
You have almost 0% chance to make it to your Cebu flight even if your flight arrives 10 minutes ahead of schedule.
Wow, thats a long time. We only have hang luggage but that wont make a big difference.
You will miss your plane, 70%
OK, you have hand carry and everything goes right.
the plane lands at 18.40 and gets straight to the gate 18.50 the doors open ( you are flying business or in front row economy) and after waiting 5 mins for the paperwork you get to Immigration, there is no one waiting and by 19.00 you have your passport stamped.
You get to the transfer desk and there is no one waiting and go to the bus which departs straight away 19.15
You have to be a bag drop or even without bags report to the desk in T3 by 19.15 so you have missed your flight.
Most likely you will have missed your flight whilst waiting your turn in Immigration.Edited: 12 October 2016, 22:52
I am with kegler and post #2. You land at terminal 1. Your domestic flight will be at another terminal that is not connected to terminal 1.
Here's the thing, even if you visit the Singapore, Korea and Hong Kong forums (where some of the world's best airports are located) many people there would recommend at least 3 hours minimum between 2 flights if they are not ticketed as a connecting flight. Here in Manila we recommend at least 4 hours as stated above.
Thank you everybody!
