Bacolod Airport in Silay Guide

Here’s how to commute / travel from Silay Airport to Bacolod City Proper. Plus: where to park, stay or eat. 

Let me be poetic for a start: Airports are portals of goodbyes and exciting meetups. For many, it’s a personification of tears and of sorrows. For others, it’s a kiss of gladness and new beginnings. So, to not add to the drama or pain, let’s make your experience at Bacolod-Silay airport a well-informed one through this article.

So, Welcome to the City of Smiles! My city, my beloved hometown.

 

Bacolod Airport

As a Freelance Real Estate Agent and Marketing Officer of a software startup based in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, I am frequently traveling in and out of the city and Bacolod-Silay Airport is my constant hang-out place. 

I wait, sleep, buy, fetch, park and do things in and around this airport for many times and I would like to share my knowledge and tips through this blog.

Airport to Bacolod City

Commute Van from Bacolod Silay Airport
The scenario the moment you come out of arrival area of Silay Airport. This becomes a busy and crowded sphere when you arrive.
The commuters' van at Bacolod Silay airport expectantly waiting for your arrival. Take the van at the left if you'll go down in Silay only. If Bacolod, take the vans at the right.

Upon landing at the Bacolod-Silay Airport, you will most likely see this scenario after you go outside the sliding door. 

Cross the street to where the canopy is located. The drivers already know the arrival time of your plane so they are better prepared for your coming.

Pay Parking / Overnight Parking in Bacolod Airport

Parking Fees at Bacolod Silay Airport

Parking Fee: P40.00 
Overnight Parking Rate: P200.00

To be honest, I don’t like the fact that you cannot wait inside the airport without parking in the pay parking area. 

Those who fetch arriving passengers wait outside the gate just beside the highway. There is no official place to wait inside the airport for free. 

If you hazard just in-front of the arrival dock without having the your passenger going out yet, you may be called on by the security personnel to get out of the zone- the next option is this pay parking or wait outside the gate.

Parking Pro Tip (Mar 2019):
If you’re not comfortable parking outside the Airport Gate because you can’t stay inside  your vehicle, I suggest you to park at the parking space of Bong Bong’s pasalubong center. But make sure you buy some pasalubong inside!

This will allow you to stay longer in a sitting position, get some aircon, eat some food or coffee better!
