Airport Overview

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 Davao 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.

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.
