Terminal Fees Included in Ticket Prices
Airlines have agreed to start collecting the terminal fee from passengers and include them in ticket prices, effective 1st August 2010. This means domestic passengers will no longer have to line up at terminal fee counters before boarding.
The terminal fee for domestic flights will remain PhP200 and will be incorporated in the ticket prices, after booking a flight. All terminal fee counters at the airports will be phased out by 2013.
The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) is also planning to incorporate the terminal fee for international flights within the year. Transportation Secretary Manuel Roxas II said the measure aims to make the airport experience more pleasant for passengers.
