the design is humble yet pleasant... you'll definitely love this airport.
"By far, one of the best airports in the Philippines. It has a simple yet modern design. You have to undergo 2 security checks: 1st - upon entering the airport, and 2nd - upon entering the pre-departure area. The airport staff are friendly. There is no rush in this airport. It may even take you around 15-30 minutes from entering the airport, check-in and going to the pre-departure area. There are plenty of seats. Although, it is slowly becoming crowded due to increasing number of flights, but I observed that they added few more chairs to accommodate the volume of waiting passengers. I just hope that there are plenty of shops/food stalls or restaurants inside the pre-departure area so that you don't need to go out to the shops area and be checked by the security again and again. Overall, great airport experience."
