Gateway to the Philippines’ trending Boracay, Godofredo P. Ramos Airport, or Caticlan Airport as it is alternatively known, serves hundreds of thousands of passengers each year. Welcoming only domestic flights on small planes, Godofredo P. Ramos Airport is growing significantly in light of Boracay’s increasing tourist popularity.
Multiple airlines service the municipality of Malay where Godofredo P. Ramos Airport is located to other Philippine cities. Multiple airlines serve the Malay to Manila route, while some also link Boracay to Cebu and Busuanga. Philippine Airlines has just begun operating routes to Cebu and Clark through its PAL Express arm.
The airport is less than a 20-minute drive from central Malay. The Caticlan Jetty Port is a ten-minute walk away. Motorised tricycles are the island’s most popular form of transport and many serve as taxis. A private ride from the airport to Malay is available at a fixed price, or visitors can walk to the main road and catch a shared taxi. Scooters and mountain bikes are both available to rent for getting around Boracay.
Boracay is filled with white sand beaches and many hallmarks of island life. Boating, scuba diving and kiteboarding are all popular activities contributing to the tourism boom.
