As an archipelago, flying is the most convenient and fastest way to explore the major regions in the Philippines. Most visitors who would like to experience the Philippines' best beaches, islands, mountains, and other spectacular attractions have to go through at least a few airport transfers, thanks to the geographical features of the Philippines

For your epic vacation in the Philippines, you need to plan your entry and transfer points carefully. Learning more about the major airports in the Philippines will help you determine the most suitable airport to land in. 



Like many countries, the busiest Philippine airports are those located in the most prominent cities. The Ninoy International Airport (NAIA) or Manila Airport lies in the National Capital Region (NCR) or Metro Manila and is the country’s main flight hub.



Mactan-Cebu International Airport or Cebu Airport in the province of Cebu is the second most prominent airport in the Philippines and is the primary flight center in the Visayas Region. It is located on Mactan Island and is linked to the Cebu Metropolitan Area via the San Juanico Bridge. 

The Iloilo Airport is another international airport located in the Visayas. This airport serves the regional center of Iloilo City and the rest of the Iloilo province. 

Davao International Airport or Davao Airport in the city of Davao stands out within the Philippines' Mindanao region for its sheer size and passenger traffic flow. 

Clark Airport serves the Northern Luzon area and is one of the major airports in the Philippines. It is only approximately 108 kilometers from NAIA. Thus, passenger transfers between these two airports are common.
