FAQs - booking Philippines flights

  • What major airports are located in the Philippines?

    Manila Airport is the larger and busier airport in the Philippines, located near the county's capital, Manila. Other significant airports in the country include Davao International Airport (DVO), serving the entire Davao region, and Iloilo International Airport (ILO), a primary gateway to the Iloilo province.

  • Which airport should I arrive at to visit Boracay Island?

    Boracay Island is a stunning destination for travellers seeking to soak in the sun and enjoy breathtaking scenes. You can get convenient access to the island by flying to Caticlan Airport (MPH), within walking distance from Caticlan Jetty Port. You can catch a boat or ferry to Boracay Island from here.

  • Can I bring a pet on my flight to the Philippines?

    Most flight operators to the Philippines allow pets on board. Depending on your airline's pet policy, you can bring your fluffy companion in-flight or as checked luggage. Pet size and weight requirements apply and can attract extra costs. However, Philippine law mandates that your pet must be vaccinated against rabies at least 30 days before your travel date, and you must show a health certificate produced by an accredited veterinarian within 10 days of your travel date.

  • Which holidays may affect flights to the Philippines?

    Christmas is a big holiday in the Philippines, featuring heavy traffic on domestic and international flights and vibrant celebrations. Also, considering the country's religious setting, Holy Week, All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day are significant holidays that can affect flights to the Philippines. To avoid increased fares and crowds on these holidays, consider booking in advance and being flexible with your travel dates.

  • Which city in the Philippines should I stay in?

    While Manila is the country’s largest city, there are several other cities that you could use as your home-base in the Philippines. Iloilo City’s airport, the Iloilo International Airport, is considered the cleanest and most efficient airport in the country, and is in a very central location. Nearby Cebu City is also a popular choice in the Visayas Islands specially for beachgoers, or there is Cagayan de Oro on Mindanao Island.

  • Do I need a visa to travel to the Philippines?

    Since 2013, Australian passport holders do not need to apply for a visa in order to enter the Philippines. You can enter freely if your stay, whether for business or pleasure, does not exceed 30 days and you have evidence of a return or onward bound ticket. Passports must also be valid for at least six months beyond the date of your intended stay.

  • Where do I fly if I want to visit the Ifugao rice fields?

    There is no nearby airport to the Ifugao rice fields. The closest is the Cauayan Airport (CYZ) which is still a 3h drive from the Ifugao region, and domestic services to the local airport are limited. Further is the Clark International Airport (CRK) in Angeles, however it is still a 5h drive from here to the rice fields. However, if you are taking a tour, it will likely be from Angeles or Manila and so both cities are considered a gateway to northern Philippines.

  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Philippines flight deals.
  • Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) is the primary hub of the Philippines' national carrier, Philippine Airlines, and serves cities around the Luzon region, including Manila, Quezon City and Caloocan.
  • If you're stuck on a stopover at Manila Airport, you can spend time and unwind at the onsite lounges in Terminals 1 and 3. You can purchase a day pass or pay at the door if you don't have free access.
  • If you’re visiting the picturesque Boracay Island, the closest airport is the Godofredo P. Ramos Airport (MPH) in nearby Caticlan. From here you can catch a ferry to the island. As the airport is small, some choose to fly into Iloilo City Airport (ILO), however, it is a 4h drive from here to Caticlan.
  • The Philippines is a large collection of islands, some over a day’s travel to each other. Flying is therefore a good way to see the country, and you can take advantage of the over 70 airports throughout the country.
  • The capital city of the Philippines, Manila, is a popular airport to fly into as it is the country's largest international airport and has the largest number of domestic connections. You can find direct flights to Manila with airlines such as Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, and Qantas.
  • Those looking to fly to Cebu in the Southern Philippines should search for flights to Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB), the second busiest airport in the country. You can find one-stop flights to Cebu from Sydney with Scoot or Philippine Airlines.
  • When preparing for your trip to the Philippines, it is worth keeping in mind that most of the airports have limited facilities. It is recommended that you travel with hand sanitiser and that you wait until you leave the airport to use ATMs for better transaction prices.

Awesome as always. I wish though the cabin for premium was upgraded.... Same old sane old :(

It was a great flight Food was great Crew was spectacular

They made me check my carry on even though there was room We un boarded in a strange way but overall it was good

Seating cramped; close to toilet, foul smelling and noisy, very unhygienic and disease risk Free and paid Wi-Fi NOT accessible at all - misleading advertising Very expensive sunglasses disappeared from back seat pouch. Coffee disgusting and cold

When boarding, after business class should be premium economy, but economy class already lined-up at the gate blocking premium economy to board. Singapore airline crew should done a better job to organize this chaos :( Thank you.

It seems paying premium economy does not make difference with economy. No priority boarding, not worthy paying extra$$$ for premium economy.

Wonderful service, planes and interior in great condition, very pleasant experience

Every thing was fine. Some ild classical Hindi movies should be add

The singapore airline now compared before covid, I like the service before covid. SQ was the best of all airlines but now I am going to look for different airline if I am travelling in asia.

Flying with Singapore airlines is always excelllent - the crew are lovely and the food too is great. It’s my number 1 airline

Qantas are unable to service and unfit for purpose, they cannot transport Australians on time to overseas destinations. On top of the inflated ticketing, the Sydney flight to Santiago was impacted because the plane was delayed arriving and then further bungling by Qantas admitting the ground new ground crew in charge of cleaning were not trained. The impact on passengers with connecting flights was tremendous and long ques of frustrated passengers waiting for rescheduling. **Qantas has become the Australian Spirit of disappointment**

The staff we fantastic and seemed to work very well with each other

Business lounge in Melbourne mediocre. Look at Emirates or Qatar, Qantas! Great friendly crew. Food was good but Emirates is a level above. Business seat good. But can’t compare to Qatar. Main reason for booking Qantas is loyalty and terrific connection via Perth to LHR.

I was pleasantly surprised with my flight to LA with Qantas. Although seats were not the roomies, service was excellent.

The service and smooth landing. Food was delicious and the staff was friendly. We arrived earlier than scheduled.

Wonderful crew, good food. Absolutely loved the wine spritz and wish I could buy it!

Don’t like last minute airline change. Not able to choose seat earlier.

It's only a short trip from Sydney to Melbourne, which i have done many times. The trip met my expectations

I really appreciated the fact that when I checked my bags at the Quantas counter after arriving from an international flight an hour early, the agent noticed I had a very long layover. He then found an earlier flight that allowed me to get to Cairns several hours earlier than I planned. That was amazing because I had already traveled over 20 hours and wasn’t looking forward to such a long layover. It allowed me to see my daughter and grandchildren much earlier (it had been two years since I visited last).

Qantas cancelled my flight for no good reason and rebooked me into a middle seat.

When I checked in, there was no option available for selecting a gluten-free meal. The lounge offerings were inadequate for someone with a gluten-free diet, and the staff in the lounge were not helpful at all.

Check-in was tedious. They could just have used the electronic boarding passes and counter checked the passengers’ names in their manifest. What’s the use of the early checkin if we still have to queue at the only 1 functioning checkin counter!

I’m 6’2” and the seats were too close together for my knees, very uncomfortable.

So far pal express is much better than Cebu pacific in terms of customers service and in flight crew. And on time departure and arrival . Especially if you're taking airbus 320 plane . But the small aircraft like bombardier . It usually delayed .

The return flight has been a nightmare. I am stuck in Singapore right now because PAL has not managed to resolve my return to Manila. The engine blew up on take off

Everything could better always late always rescheduled flight is worse and costs me a hotel room! The dirtiest planes I’ve ever flown on slowest to board . Just awful will never fly again with them

Boarded the plane last even while I was seated at the back and had to have my bag separate. The same exact special request meal was served as the flight an hour beforehand

The food was ordinary, this could be improved. Sleeping was comfortable enough for several hours sleep. The layover time in Manila Mabuhay lounge for 17 hours was awful. Surely I could have been given a flight to Perth within that time on another airline. At 74 years of age I find that far too long and stressful and will probably not travel with Philippine Airlines again for that reason. The food offering on board and in the lounge was also a little underwhelming. The crew were wonderful and the flight comfort was good also.

I paid for an aisle seat on my booking but for my return flight back in the US I was ina middle seat. I didnt realize this until i was already on the plane.

The flight itself was ok. However, the plane has 2 bathrooms for about 200 people. After the meal service there was a line between 10-15 people deep standing in the aisle waiting to use the bathroom. This went on for over an hour. The airlines tell us safety is their priority and to keep seatbelts on whenever on the plane but they allow a line of people to stand in the aisle for over an hour waiting for a bathroom. Absurd and unacceptable.

Terrible, I will never ever ever attempt to fly on Cebu Pacific. I understand that it’s a cheap flight option but they take cheap experience to the next level.

The front desk and early check in was fantastic and the flight did not have any turbulence

better handling of the checked in luggage. they destroyed mine

Should’ve not separated those who checked-in online and those who checked-in at the airport

the process of paying for the excess baggage weight, the check in process and the boarding process are subhuman. this is an airline devoid of customer service

Cebu Pac has a habit of changing boarding gates. They do a lot of remote boarding. So just be attentive to the announcements, especially if it's near your boarding time.

It was a low cost flight, so no high expectations. The experience was average.

Crew was very helpful because I used a wheelchair to get around

Flight was delayed for almost 30 minutea, I had difficulties to catch up the connecting flight. Bit due to tje well organized Singapore airport I was able to make it

The flight was delayed for 3 hours and I missed my transit flight.

6hrs fly they dont give you a glass of water from seoul to singapore need to buy drink and food plus they charge for bag on international fly is always Free 1 bag from seoul to singapore is Not a local fly you are traveling true asia same story from singapore to Bali no water drink after payment for bag drink cost more the regular airline Well never use this company again we use regular company like Delta korea japan China and even scoot parent company Singapore Air

We had 2 attempts to land at Singapore Changing during a thunderstorm. Everything was delayed by 1 hour plus.

Boarding was not accordingly after front seat, bmf then back seat. This delayed for at least 40mins or more. The staff at Jakarta can do better. Is chaos at the entry to board the plane. This tarnished Scoot reputation when everyone was talking about it.

The crew was not customer oriented at all, even confrontational . The aircraft needs more attention to detail as far as comfort, and the 1 hour sitting at the gate with no air is inexcusable

We flew on the 787 Dreamliner direct to main gate at KLIA2, quick entry via eGate and on the train 41mins after touchdown. Go well SCOOT

Was on scoot plus. The only good thing about the flight was the spacious seats. Tables and armrests were extremely dirty Food: bad Entertainment: non existent Wifi: unable to connect, then was painfully slow that we couldn’t even send messages Good thing we had a night flight, so we just slept throughout.

Not clear why boarding passes could only be issued at the counter and not through the kiosk. I had already check-in on the web, so waiting to obtain a boarding pass 1.5 hours before the actual flight defeats the purpose of early web check-in.

no charging point. food offering is limited and very much on the budget line. Overall is not satisfying for such a price and duration of flight.

We were delayed, but there was never any update given. Everyone was standing at the gate as boarding was supposed to commence at 13:10 for a 13:55 flight. We didn't actually start getting on the shuttles to the plane, until after 14:00. No updates, no information given at all.

Scoot refused to change my flight even though I had booked a flexible ticket. MyTrip wanted to charge me an extra $271 for a ticket that was only listed as $217. I complained about this to scoot and they didn't give a shite. So never again will you be getting money from me Scoot. You can Scoot off.
