Getting from Angeles City to Aquino Airport

If you go to Angeles City and do not fly out of Clark International Airport; you probably will have to travel to Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport. (NAIA) Travel from Angeles there is quite easy but it does take some time. There is no reason you would need to use a Uber car or a taxi either.

The truth is you could get from Walking Street to Terminal 3 for about $5 or less. These guys saying it cost $100 or more are just plain out of their minds.

This article will give you the easiest and cheapest way to get to Ninoy Aquino doing it the way Filipinos do it. You can believe they will not spend $100 on transportation anywhere.


How to get to Ninoy Aquino International

Let’s assume you are standing at Jolibee by walking street. You will cross the road to where the 711 in the middle of the terminal is. Next to that is the jeepney saying Dau. This is the same of the bus terminal. You wait a few minutes until they fill it up and you make the 7-10 minutes to the Dau Bus Terminal. You will get off in front of Sogo Hotel.

Once you get off, you walk down the alley to the terminal and find either Partas or Five Star buses waiting to go to Pasay. Make sure they are going there and not only Cubao in Quezon City. The fare should be between $2.20-$2.50 depending if it is air conditioned or not.


Tell the conductor to let you off at McDonalds Baclaran. This is just before their terminal in Pasay.

Next, you just walk behind McDonalds and get on the Airport Shuttle ran by the Philippine government. It is a flat fare of P20 to terminal 3. It is an air conditioned bus and they leave every 15-20 minutes.

It will let you out right at the door of the new Terminal 3 of Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Time saving tip: if you are coming to Manila around mid day and want to say some time, get off the bus at GMA Tower (TV station). You can take the MRT (light rail) to Taft that is literally above the McDonalds Baclaran. This is assuming you don’t have much baggage. 


What about Southern Cross Shuttle?

There is a hotel in Manila that offers a shuttle from Angeles to the Airport that basically just saves you having to go to Dau and make that little walk around McDonalds in Baclaran. It is ran by Southern Cross Hotel.

I do not know much about the shuttle besides that ask you come to Brass Knob Hotel by ABC resort for the trip and it cost P600.

Personally, I do not see the value in using it over just getting a bus at Dau Terminal for Pasay.
