Transportation from City Center to Surabaya Juanda International Airport
Juanda Airport, which is 20 km from the city center of Surabaya, can be reached by train, bus or taxi. The most preferred means of transportation by the passengers is the taxi. With Blue Bird, the most reliable taxi company, you can go directly to Surabaya Airport, or you can choose a vehicle from the Go-jek or Grab application.
To get to Surabaya Airport by public transport, you can take the train from Surabaya Kota, the train station in the city center, to the Waru stop and transfer to the No. 1 bus to get to Surabaya Airport in 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Another public transportation option is to take the number 2 bus and go to the airport from the city center of Surabaya without transferring. Tickets can be purchased from the driver on the air-conditioned and comfortable buses.
You can choose a private transfer to be picked up from the lobby of your hotel in the city center and go directly to the airport. You can purchase this service from the websites of local or international reservation companies, or you can ask your hotel to arrange a private transfer for you.
Transportation from Manila Ninoy Aquino Airport to City Center
Manila Ninoy Aquino Airport, located 7 kilometers south of the center of Manila, is also quite crowded and complex, just like the city center. For this reason, there may be some difficulties in finding buses, especially during busy periods. You have several different bus alternatives on your journey to the city centre. The reason for this is the facilities and ticket prices provided by the buses to their passengers. In Manila, it is possible to reach the city center by paying a higher price for the ticket and using high-tech vehicles such as air conditioning and television. Normally, it takes 30 minutes between the city center and the airport, but when the traffic is crowded, this time can even go up to 2 hours.
In the Philippines, minibuses made from old American buses are called 'jeepneys' and these vehicles are widely used in urban transportation. Jeepneys also provide transportation between the airport and Baclatran.
Another means of transportation you can use in Manila is taxis. When you take a taxi from the airport, don't forget to negotiate the price with the driver if you don't want to pay too much in the traffic that has become a lock due to Jeepneys.
