The Kalibo International Airport (KLO) is one of two main airports serving the gorgeous getaway island of Boracay in the Philippines. This airport has been touted as one of the fastest growing hubs in the country, seeing almost three million people transit through its airport in 2016. The airport is 4km from Kalibo, and 60km from Catliclan Jetty where you can board ferries to the island of Boracay, with tons of beautiful coastline in between.
There is one compact terminal, and you won’t find loads of facilities here, but you will find a few amenities here. There are bathrooms, and a massage area you can utilise. You can also find a duty-free shop where you can pick up goods or gifts. If you’re hungry there are some snack kiosks where you can pick up some refreshments. Though there are restaurants located just outside the airport across the open parking lot.

Flying to this airport will require booking with airlines like Philippine Airlines, the national flag carrier of the nation, or Cebu Pacific.
· Rental cars are best secured online, as this is a small airport and demand can be high. For Kalibo, you need only go via Jaime Cardinal Sin Ave and you will be there in about 10 minutes. To get to the Caticlan Jetty, you will have to get on that same Jamie Cardinal Sin Ave, and then get onto the Western Nautical Highways, which you take the full way to the northern coast of Panay Island.
· There are taxis available outside Kalibo International Airport (KLO) but often you have to haggle for a price. It is advisable that if you are heading to Boracay that you pre-arrange your booking in advance, as this journey is around 2 hours to the jetty, and can be more comfortable and cheaper if you arrange your private airport transfers online.
