What to Expect
The small terminal at Puerto Princesa City Airport opened in 2017 and serves domestic flights and a few international destinations. There are shops and eateries, but we don’t have additional details. We are unable to confirm if WiFi is available.
Where to Sleep
Based on traveller reviews, it seems that this airport closes nightly, but a small restaurant across the street may stay open overnight. Have a backup plan if you’re staying overnight. For uninterrupted sleep, hotels are nearby. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.
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.
