The New and Improved Boracay Airport

I know this is quite an old news already but it's my first time back in Boracay after two years and I was elated to see a lot of improvements at the now Boracay Airport (known as Caticlan Airport for the longest time) even from across the tarmac.

After spending a weekend in the beautiful island of Boracay, we were back at the airport and I saw these upgrades up close and personal. The check-in counters are more professional looking rather than the makeshift counters they used before, the pre-departure area now has two floors so everyone can be accommodated and will have a place to sit while waiting for boarding (Shangri-la Boracay and Discovery Shores guests have their own lounges), there are more food choices like Illy Coffee, Hen Lin and a Japanese food stand

two LCD televisions hang on the wall with CNN and ANC channels and the comfort rooms are so much nicer now with tissue, working flush and a bidet!

The view from the second floor of the pre-departure area.

From Php20, the terminal fee hiked up to Php200 per person just like in most international airports like Manila and Cebu. I guess convenience and comfort really does come with a price. But with the delayed flights and cancellations this airport experiences more often than others, its a price we would gladly pay for.
