Glimpse of Basco Airport Terminal Building

There are two airports in Batanes Islands, Basco Airport and Itbayat Airport but of course, Basco is the popular one. If you are planning to go to Basco Batanes, here are the airlines that you can check.

There are so many options, the only problem is the budget. We all know that flight to Batanes is not cheap and it is even cheaper to go to Hong Kong and Taiwan compared to Batanes. So it took me a long time to visit this province. I thought, that the flight was almost fully booked kasi mahal na yung mga nakikita ko na fare pero wala pa yata kami 20 persons sa flight namin.

Anyway, I’m so happy when I finally see the Basco Airport. Wow, nakita ko na rin in person ang Basco Airport. This airport is just small pero nagagandahan pa rin ako. It is different compared to small airports that I’ve seen like in Busuanga and Bohol. Though I’m not sure if those airports have improved already since ang tagal na rin nung last visit namin.

Wala bag carousel so hihintayin mo lang talaga siya ibaba ng airport staff. They will just leave your bag on the floor. Pick up your bag and prepare the bag ticket because they will check it before you can go out. Since there were only few passengers, we were out of the airport in 5 minutes. Our hotel pick-up was already there.

Our flight is 11:30AM and we arrived at the airport at 9:10AM. We were advised that check-in time is 9:30AM to nagtingin-tingin muna ko sa souvenir shops and I was able to buy sungka. There is no traffic in Basco and wala rin magagawa sa airport so no need na super aga, I think kahit 2 hours before flight ka na umalis from your hotel or accommodation.

Our flight was delayed for almost two hours because late dumating ang plane and weather condition. Biglang lumakas hangin so we are not allowed to fly. Well, when in Batanes, it is pretty normal because you cannot predict the weather. It is still better to be safe than sorry.

If you don't have a free roundtrip airport transfer from your hotel, you can book here for your Private Basco Airport Transfers.
