    If you arrive early, there's no good place to chill. But "carenderia's" nearby serve good foods though at an affordable rate :)

    Baggage scanner broke. I'm wondering where the 30 pesos terminal fee goes.

    Prepare to be extra patient. With the overly delayed renovation still on the way, this airport remains one if not the worst airport in the country.

    Heaven bless this city! This airport right now is operable only for military air transportations due to typhoon Yolanda ie Haiyan.. God bless the children the most needy victims..

    Need to say this airport is hell.

    Always make sure to have a cash since this airport does not have an atm machine.

    Prepare your "patience". This airport is one of the lousiest airport i've ever been to. Very unorganized!

    Prepare your ears for mind-busting noise made by children. Find absolutely no comfort in their CR. So disappointing.

    Worst airport in the country for sheer inability to renovate after over three (3) decades of planning.

    Mars Veloso · January 5, 2012

    There's word going around that the budget to renovate the airport got transferred over to Bacolod's due to the Romualdez-Petilla feud.

    Same old airport... Nothing has changed after so many years... They need to renovate this place.

    Keep in mind that after Haiyan/Yolanda, the airport is undergoing major construction. Don't expect too much comfort. However, people here are very nice.

    The x-ray machine is still not functioning. Manual inspection of belongings/baggage is still being done by airport personnel. Same thing since August 2013-the last time I was here.

    I wish the guards who examine the baggages would wear gloves or use a stick in checking the items inside.

    Zestair DON'T provide waiting area for passengers arriving early though they're occupying the new terminal. Zest personnel arrives 2 hrs before the scheduled flight. Only then the terminal be opened.

    Flor Cagas · October 5, 2013
  • Lia M.

    When you are advised to check-in 2hours before the flight, it doesn't work here. They're still closw, well this is the case when you're taking the 1st flight

    Lia Myr · September 29, 2013

    Not enough room for the waiting area

    Dia Dimitiman · August 13, 2013

    They don't have carts here. No proper ventilation too. :-/

    Brace yourself to a SRO, inadequate chairs on peak hours.

    M. Tambor · August 3, 2013
  • JR O.

    There's a poor chance you'll get a seat in waiting area. This airport is too small and too crowded.

    JR Ong · July 27, 2013
  • Charles Vincent M.

    The terminal is small. You should come early to avoid the rush.

    Charles Vincent Manarang · May 21, 2013

    The authorities here need to reorganize the place. Confusing queus, crowded space, not so well ventilated. People though are very courteous and friendly.

    Going for a snack? Don't forget your priority number when you fall in line at the only store in the boarding area.

    A year after #Haiyan and a week after #Hagupit devastation. This tiny airport is indeed a survivor. Just keep on going TAC no matter what. #bumabangon

    Understandably, there are no snack bars inside TAC/RPVA just yet but there's a row of carinderias just outside to serve hungry passengers.

    unlawyer · June 26, 2014
  • Marlo J.

    100php Terminal fee ... i'm cool with this as long as there are improvements everytime I come here. BTW....there is already A/C in the pre departure area....;-)

    this airport looks like a barriotic bus terminal. Airplane pala ang naglland dito hindi habal habal!

    Restoration and renovation must be done soonest

    LiyAna Mi · March 15, 2014
  • Paul P.

    Check-in early, ask your ride to wait, visit the MacArthur landing & come back. There's nothing to do yet at pre-departure so you might as well support local tourism sites.

    Paul Pajo · December 28, 2013
  • JR O.

    Long queue lines await the passengers, so come as early as you can.

    JR Ong · December 20, 2013

    Haiyan devasted airport, no stores yet as of today so bring food stuff.

    M. Tambor · November 26, 2013
  • Chris M.

    If a group children will approach you while walking downtown, trying to sell you a thing or two or asking for alms, better check your belongings! You might not know what's missing in your bag/pocket

    Chris Mendoza · October 25, 2013

    Disgusting place

    Carl Yap · October 6, 2013

    Passengers needs to wait outside the terminal because the terminal is CLOSED no zestair personnel until the scheduled flight!!!! Good thing it's NOT RAINING, have to endure the heat though. :-(

    Flor Cagas · October 5, 2013
  • Flor C.

    New airport terminal for Zestair NO SCANNER/X-RAY MACHINE! I wonder does P75.00 terminal fee worth it? Where does goes? Terminal departure area does not opened until 2 hours before the flight. :-(
