Caticlan Airport – Recommended Airport To Boracay
Positive: The positive aspects of landing at Caticlan Airport is that it only takes 5 minutes to transfer from the Caticlan Airport to the Aklan Boat Jetty where you will board a Banka boat which will escort you across the waterway to Boracay island. The airport is small and it is impossible to get lost. This is the fastest route to Boracay Island.
Negative: The negative aspect of this route is that airline tickets cost almost double or more than flying to Kalibo Airport. The other aspect is that since the runway is short and with obstacle, only aircraft that hold 60 seats and below can land at the Caticlan Airport. You could possibly be diverted to Kalibo with no compensation or apology. SeAir Airlines has the least diverts but their ticket is the most expensive. However, they are the fastest flights to Boracay.
Airline Ticket Cost: Price can range from PHP3000 – PHP15,000 depending on promo or when you reserve your ticket. Rule of thumb is that the earlier you reserve your ticket the cheaper it will be. However, TravelOnline buys airline tickets in bulk and always has a special promo available especially for SeAir Airlines which we are a GSA / Wholesaler.
