To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Francisco Bangoy International Airport.
What to Expect
- A spacious and modern single-terminal international airport with clean and simple facilities and friendly airport staff. A wide variety of interesting shops and food concessions is available, mostly landside. Most reviewers describe this airport as the best in the Phillippines.
- Plenty of comfortable seating available!
- Despite the high volume of travellers, airport procedures are organized and efficient.
- Power outlets are not located in areas that are convenient to the waiting area.
Where to Sleep
- Although the seating is considered comfortable by many of our reviewers, the seats are made of aluminum and have armrests, so you’ll have to sleep sitting up. Have a travel blanket handy, as the air-conditioning keeps the air frigid inside the terminal!
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
Good to Know
- Economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport’s first class lounge. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.
