After flying in to Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Manila, how long should I plan to take using public transportation (bus?) to get to General Santos?

  • Before anyone asks, yes, I can read schedules. What I'm looking for is any known disruptions to travel in the next month or two; are the schedules firm, or known to be worthless, etc. I'm likely flying out in April 2015. – CGCampbell Mar 20 '15 at 17:43

    You do know there are a bunch of islands and salty-water puddles between the two cities, right? :P – JoErNanO Mar 20 '15 at 18:20

Most of these flights are on so small airlines that it's hard to get historical performance data on but the Philippine 453 flight out of 34 observations, 85% was on time, averaging only 9 minutes of delay, maximum 31 minutes of delay. So yes, the schedule is pretty firm.

Rome2rio does show some bus connections but it's 1.5-2 days and does not show a significant savings over a flight taking less than 2 hours so I have not pursued this avenue further.

On further research I have found some outdated information on ferries going from Manila to Iloilo and on to General Santos taking even longer closer to three days. I haven't researched this either but the Wikipedia page on 2GO reports it to be a modern fleet so one can presume it's on schedule.
