Renamed Boracay Airport (MPH) in 2016, but also known as Godofredo P. Ramos Airport and Caticlan Airport, this main gateway to Boracay is located in the municipality of Malay, at the northern tip of Panay Island. It takes less than an hour, including a boat ride, to get to Boracay Island once you're out of the airport.
Renovated in 2016, Boracay Airport has seen its runway extended from 1,400 to 1,800 metres, which allows the take off and landing of larger aircraft, such as the Airbus A320 which can carry up to 180 passengers. It also permits the airport to serve more and more international destinations. Despite the renovation, the airport is still very small with few amenities. The good thing about this is the whole process of immigration and baggage collection is usually quick and easy.
From Boracay Airport to Boracay Island, you have first to take a moto tricycle to get to Caticlan Port situated a short five-minute’s ride away (in fact, the pier is just one block away from the airport’s terminal), then take the regular boat that operates daily from 05:00 to 22:30. Once at Boracay Port, you have to take another moto tricycle to reach your hotel. The whole transfer should cost you less than PHP 200 per adult, including the PHP 75 environmental fee.
As mentioned, Boracay Airport is just adjacent to Caticlan Town and port, so you can find here a choice of bars, restaurants and stores if you want to replenish yourself while waiting for the boat that will take you to Boracay Island, lying two kilometres away from Panay Island. The boat ride takes no more than 10 minutes.
