Airports: Iloilo International

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Iloilo International Airport is small but clean and very much alike Naia Terminal 2 and 3. It is located far from Iloilo City, 19kms away in the city of Santa Barbara.

The Departure:

To get to the aiport, there are taxis available. However, they will try to give you a flat rate of P350-400 for the trip. The cheaper way to go is to get yourself to SM City Iloilo. There is an airport terminal there where L300 vans will take you to the airport for P70. Be at the terminal approximately 2hours before your flight schedule. These vans do not have a scheduled departure time. They leave as soon as the van is full. So if you're flight schedule is out-of-the-ordinary, it might take some time before the van gets filled up.

The Arrival:

This can be a little tricky. There are airport taxis that would be willing to bring you to wherever you want at a fixed price. Haggle before riding. To the Ceres Bus station, it may cost around P350-400. However, the cheaper option would be to ride the vans for P70-100. This will take you to SM city. From here, you can take a taxi to wherever (atleast you are already within the city vicinity) or take the jeep if you can find your way around.

Since this is an international airport (although all flights that come thru are only domestic), the terminal fee is P200/person.
