Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines fly to the most destinations.

The next-busiest airport is located across the country on the south side of the island. Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB) is located in Lapu-Lapu City and consists of one passenger terminal.

Popular Destinations from the Philippines

Within the Philippines, there are dozens of popular tourist destinations just waiting to be explored. And since there are so many airports in the country, fun trips close to home are simple. Try visiting Manila, Cebu, El Nido or Puerto Princesa. Other gorgeous Asian cities, such as Taipei, Taiwan and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, are also just a short plane ride away via airlines like EVA Air and Philippine Airlines.

If you're looking to explore a new continent, consider Australia. You can often find direct flights from the Philippines to important Australian cities like Melbourne and Sydney. In Melbourne, you won't want to miss the Melbourne Zoo, and in Sydney, the Sydney Opera House is a must-see architectural attraction.

Ninoy Aquino Airport also offers nonstop flights to North American cities like Toronto, Vancouver, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Flights from the Philippines to Canada or to the United States will be long but will allow you to experience a completely different culture. If you're flying out of other airports, you will have at least one stop, either at Ninoy Aquino Airport or outside of the country in Japan or Taiwan.

Getting to the Airport

The most popular public transportation option across the Philippines is the jeepney. Jeepneys are essentially miniature busses made from old cargo trucks. Though this method of transportation is inexpensive, jeepneys can get quite crowded, with little room for baggage. Many of the major cities also have a light rail transit system that can be used to access the airport. In smaller cities, transport options are limited to jeepneys or taxis.

Airport and Travel Tips

Passengers should aim to arrive at the airport at least two hours before flight departure. If you're travelling internationally, or during peak times, you'll want to give yourself an extra buffer and arrive at least three hours before your flight departs.
