Airport facilities

The El Nido Airport is a tiny airport with a single runway that was only recently upgraded from gravel to concrete. As a result, don't expect much in terms of facilities. You won't find restaurants, shops, currency exchanges, ATMs, or lounges here, although that's part of what gives this airport its charm. On the other hand, because there are so few flights and not very many crowds, you won't have to deal with the long lineups at check-in and security that are typical of larger airports.
