    One of the best airports not just in Asia but it’s way overcrowded.



    Pros: Comfortable and relaxing interiors (temperature is just right), ample seating, budget-friendly meals (JD Cafe rocks!), charging station installed by Smart and other companies, 30mins-1hr fast wifi (now uses Smart and Globe Wifi services)

    Cons: Crowded. Needs more seats and most importantly, expansion! Sleeping is a chore due to the seat design.

    Having been flied to Iloilo occasionally to visit my hometown, Iloilo Airport, in its decade of operations, is still one of the best airports not just in the Philippines but also in Asia. Although it's not as big as NAIA, the cool and relaxing interiors are a beauty to be seen that other airports do not have. The comfortable ambiance with the right temperature also adds to its beauty. It has many basic facilities available, like souvenir shops, a budget-friendly JD Cafe plus others, fast Wi-Fi (limited to 30mins or 1 hour), a FREE charging station to charge your devices and a water dispenser. Philippines Air Asia now flies to Manila and Clark from Iloilo aside from Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific (its hub) and Air Juan.

    Going to the city from the airport is easy as riding the L300 van to SM City Iloilo or any other stop in the road going to the mall as desired (rates depend on your destination) or you can book a taxi in a counter just outside. There's still no L300 van that goes to the terminal in Jaro which has buses and jeeps plying to the northern side of Panay, bummer. Be warned that the L300 van might be stuffy hot inside because of its capacity.

    Although it's a pretty airport, the pre-departure area is crowded at times that some people tend to sit at the floor. There are ample seats though but still it gets full once the crowd rushes in. It's quite hard to sleep or take a nap though because of the seating design. Hopefully the much-awaited terminal expansion will finally push through to meet the demands of the flying public not just domestically but also internationally.

    Iloilo Airport Review



    Terminal 1 – I like everything because I feel like I’m at home. I am not bothered to leave my hand carry things at my seat whenever I go to c.r. And I can sleep without being disrupted. Also, food are all awesome, they are really affordable.

    Iloilo International Airport



    Pros: Nice looking airport which looks like a smaller, although cleaner version of NAIA terminal 2. Airport staff is pleasant although I hope it will not turn wretched if ever the airport expands. Bathrooms are not that phenomenal although they are well-maintained. Interiors look clean most of the time.

    Cons: Airport might need to expand its terminal, gets too crowded at times due to increasing volume of passengers

    Iloilo Airport



    Pros: Small yet beautifully-designed airport terminal with surrounding garden and great view; Direct flights to Hong Kong and Singapore 2-3x a week

    Cons: The airport is about 20km away from Iloilo City itself (oh well, at least van / taxi services are always available); The terminal already needs to be expanded as it is exceeding its passenger capacity; Couldn't they open a direct flight Iloilo to Seoul? (Am from Korea XD)

    Environment friendly



    Pros: Iloilo airport is unique among all airports in the Philippines as it incorporates natural lighting and fantastic view of mountains and rice fields which is truly relaxing to see at pre-departure area. Rest rooms are clean and well maintained. Charging stations are many. Food is also cheap. Functionality and design are its best feature.

    Cons: Its time to expand this airport as it get crowded. Steel seats needs to be retrofitted with foam cushion.

    Functional, well-mainatained, clean and the building incorporates green design through natural lighting and fantastic mountain & rice fields view at pre-departure area. Public transportation in and out of the airport is also easy.
