Iloilo International Airport ranks 12th in Asia!

Wow! Iloilo International Airport is now at 12th place in the recent survey of the Top 30 Best Airports in Asia in 2016, according to travel website.

The Guide to Sleeping in Airports (www.sleepinginairports.net) makes an annual ranking of the world’s best and worst airports based on an online survey where travelers are asked to rate the services and facilities, terminal cleanliness, customer service and comfort of all the airports in the world.

In their recently published post dated October 15, 2016, Iloilo airport in Cabatuan is the highest ranking among 4 airports in the Philippines included in the Asia’s Top 30. Mactan-Cebu International Airport is at no. 14, Clark International Airport at no. 15, and Davao International Airport at rank 26.

This is a big leap for Iloilo’s pride as it jumped 9-notch higher after ranking at 21st last year!

In one of the reviews, traveler named as ‘datrekker’ commented that ” Iloilo International Airport (ILO) is, at the moment, probably the best-looking and most efficient airport in the Philippines.”

Changi Airport of Singapore maintains its place as the best airport in Asia and the world because, according to the site, its “terminals twinkle, the staff are exceptional, the amenities are boundless and navigation is nearly effortless.”
