When we were about to board the plane in Manila for Laoag, I received a good news from Mr. Sam Blas of Balay da Blas via text message saying that there is a free shuttle service from the airport to hotels in Downtown Laoag.
As you walk towards the arrival hall of Laoag International Airport, you wont miss the signage that says:
FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE
Airport to Downtown Laoag (Centro)
Please Register at the Information Desk
You will fill out a short survey with questions such as: Is this your first time in Ilocos Norte?; Where did you hear about Ilocos Norte?; and, How many days will you stay?
The shuttle is parked right in front of the arrival hall exit. Be quick because the shuttle can easily get full. Just tell the driver/conductor which hotel you have your reservation.
This is made possible through the initiative of Gov. Imee Marcos of Ilocos Norte which aims to make the transport of tourists and OFW from the airport to downtown Laoag more convenient, and ultimately helping boost the tourist arrival into the province.
At present time, there is no free shuttle service yet from downtown Laoag to the airport.
