Sleeping in Airports

Cebu Airport Guide

Whether you have a layover, overnight sleepover or you are just quickly passing through, our Cebu Airport Guide is a great place to start planning your visit.  Here, you’ll find information on services and facilities available inside the airport – including details about airport lounges, WiFi, mobile charging points, lockers, 24-hour food options, nearby hotels, and everything in between.

They don’t even explain why they need to open your bag they just order you to open and confiscate the things they see inside. – coolgirl

Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover, here is a quick run-down of what travellers have reported to us during their time at Cebu Airport.

What to Expect

  • This is an old, single-building airport. Construction is under way for a new terminal to open in 2018 or later, though there have already been delays.
  • Eateries and services/amenities are few, but decent, including the famous Jollibee!
  • Recent improvements to the existing terminal, including expansion, newer seats, newer restrooms in some areas, and cleaner facilities. Customs and security procedures and overall passenger flow has also improved.
  • Vending machine snacks and beverages are cheaper than in the airport stores.
  • Economy class travelers can buy a pass and relax in an airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.

Where to Sleep

  • We have few reviews from travellers who have spent the night here. If you plan to spend the night, please have a backup plan.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, a few hotels are located near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

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.
