Boracay Airport – 2021

Posted on by My Boracay Guide

Boracay Airport – Updated

The first rule of Boracay Airport, is that there is no Boracay airport! 🙂

Air traffic actually lands on the southern tip of Panay island in the small town of Caticlan, and then tourists take a boat ferry to Boracay. The Island is a seven kilometre stretch of tropical paradise in Malay, Aklan Philippines. Known for its pristine, white sand. Boracay is home to the best kiteboarding beach in Asia & this once remote island attracts millions of visitors from all over the globe every year. Receiving these visitors are two airports in the mainland of Aklan, one is located in Kalibo (two-hour transfer from Kalibo airport to Boracay) and the other in Caticlan (which some people call Boracay Airport).

“Boracay Airport” to Boracay Island

The island is not accessible by plane. The nearest airport, the Godofredo P. Ramos Airport in Caticlan (also known as the Boracay Airport), is a quick ten-minute boat ride away and caters to flights to and from Manila and Cebu. It is the easiest, most accessible point of landing. Thus, the flights are more expensive than the alternative, Kalibo Airport. Presently, there are only two airlines that fly in and out of this airport, Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines. Both airlines allow only a maximum of 10 kilos of check-in baggage.

Caticlan – Boracay Airport Terminal Fee – PHP 200.00

Kalibo Airport to Boracay Island

Kalibo Airport offers domestic and international flights and is approximately 90 minutes away from Caticlan by land trip. Vans and buses are on standby and ready to take flocks of incoming tourists coming into the Caticlan Jetty Port at fairly priced rates. The roads from Kalibo to Caticlan are well maintained so the 90-minute drive is not at all bad, and perhaps because of its distance from Boracay Island, the flights are usually cheaper at Kalibo Airport compared to the Boracay Airport. These airlines fly to and from Kalibo daily:

Domestic Flight Airport Terminal Fee: 150.00
International Flight Airport Terminal Fee PHP 500.00

Kalibo Airport now accommodates direct flights to and from Korea and Taiwan daily via various air carriers. Tiger Airways fly visitors from Singapore and back on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays while Air Asia flights in and out of Kuala Lumpur are scheduled on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll
    just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any helpful hints for beginner blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Completely different from my last visit back in 1999. We had a wonderful and relaxed time back then.

    I have heard it was very much over-developed in the last 15 years.

    • Hello Michael,

      Indeed, Boracay has changed over the years. There are now many beautiful hotels that attract visitors and help promote tourism for the island, and for the Philippines. We hope you consider returning to this paradise island soon, and have a wonderful relaxing time as you did back then.
