Davao International Airport

Flights arrive into Davao - Francisco Bangoy International Airport (DVO). Most flights arrive from other airports in the Philippines, but a growing number of international flights arrive from Asian cities like Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Seoul and also from Indonesia. The airport has a range of facilities, including ATM’s and telephones. The best way to make the 20 minute or so journey into the centre of the city is by taxi. Metered and fixed rate taxis can be found outside the airport terminal. Jeepney is also an option and fares are very low.

Safety Notice

Travellers must exercise precaution when travelling to the island of Mindanao and Davao City, and many governments (UK, US, Australian and other) currently advise against travel to the area altogether. Bomb blasts occurred in Davao in 2013 and 2015, and the city has been on high terrorist attack alert for an extended period of time. Foreigners are known to have been targeted and in September 2015, three foreign nationals were kidnapped by gunmen from a terrorist organisation. Contact your local embassy for more information prior to travel.
