Airport review and guide website Sleepinginairports.com has ranked the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) and the Iloilo International Airport as the 16th and 18th Best Airports in Asia respectively at the 2019 Best Airport. This is based on an annual survey the website conducts on travellers about their overall airport experience. Singapore Changi ranked as the World's Best Airport followed by Seoul Incheon in South Korea.
The MCIA terminal 2 is known to be the most beautiful airport in the Philippines. It invokes a tropical feel using timber arches and a wave-like roof which represents the sea waves surrounding Cebu. It won the International Architecture Award in 2019 in the airports and transportation category.
The Iloilo International Airport on the other hand has been regarded as one of the most beautifully designed airports in the Philippines with an architectural style reminiscent of the Hong Kong International Airport. The Iloilo Airport has a 13,700-square-meter main passenger terminal designed to accommodate around 1.2 million passengers annually. It is equipped with three air-bridges and can service six aircraft at the same time.
