BCD Airport Overview

bacolod airport guideTo help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Bacolod-Silay International Airport.

What to Expect

Bacolod Airport (code: BCD) has a small terminal that services a few domestic flights. The landside area can get crowded before certain flights. Facilities include a few food stalls and shops plus free WiFi.  If you find the airport’s food concessions pricey, there are a few food stalls located near the airport gates. Food options are said to be good, but limited.  Mosquitoes may buzz about the terminal, so bring along mosquito repellant.

Sleeping in Bacolod Airport

The airport seems to close nightly from 11:00PM until 4:00AM, so sleeping here overnight out is not possible. For day sleepers, there are said to be unpadded, armrest-free benches available to lay across.  For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Coronavirus Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. If you have some time to spare please write a review, send a tip or share photos to help future travellers.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
