Airports in the Philippines

The Philippines, an archipelago nation boasting over 7,000 islands, offers diverse landscapes, vibrant cultures, and breathtaking scenery. Whether you’re seeking pristine beaches, bustling cities, or historical landmarks, air travel is often the most convenient way to explore. To help you navigate your journey, here’s a comprehensive guide to Philippine airports, categorized by their type and location.

Aerodromes are divided into four categories in the country: International, Principal Class I, Principal Class II, and Community. These categories are defined by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) based on certain criteria:

  • International airports are considered gateways to and from the country. Since these airports handle foreign arrivals, they are required to have border control facilities that monitor and handle the ingress and egress of passengers in the Philippines.
  • Domestic airports are further divided into two classes:
    • Principal Class I airports are airports that are capable of handling jet aircraft with a capacity of 100 or more passengers.
    • Principal Class II airports are defined as those that can accommodate aircraft smaller than the minimum size for Class I, but still capable of carrying 19 passengers or more.
    • Community airports are small-scale airfields primarily designed to serve general aviation traffic, rather than commercial flights.

Data collected by AviationUpdatesPH.com indicates that there are 87 classified aerodromes in the country. Among these, eight are international airports, 20 are Principal Class I, 19 are Principal Class II, and 40 are community airports.

As of February 4, 2022, the following are airports classified by CAAP:
