How To Get From/To Puerto Princesa Airport?

Puerto Princesa International Airport (PPS), located in Barangay San Miguel, has capacity for about 2 million passengers annually. In May 2017 the airport underwent an expansion and opened a new terminal. This airport mostly caters to domestic flights, but it also has direct flights from South Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

Puerto Princesa Airport is only 2km away from the city center and you can even reach the center with a 15 to 20-min walk! For convenience, you can also take a tricycle starting at 50 PHP ($1) or an airport shuttle for at least 80 PHP ($1.60). The latter is a better option if you’re carrying a lot of luggage.

Travelling via tricycle is a good option. It’s cheap, and it’s the most common way to go around the city center. And although taking a tricycle is not the most comfortable option for taller people, it’s a great opportunity to experience local transport.

You’ll find tricycles waiting just outside the perimeters of Puerto Princesa Int’l Airport. They have standard fares, and we’ve provided the table below to guide you.
