MANILA – Effective Feb. 1, all passengers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport will be covered by the implementation of the global policy integrating the International Passengers Service Charge (IPSC), better known as airport terminal fee, into their airline fees.
This is contained in a memorandum from Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) General Manager Jose Angel Honrado and addressed to all airlines and concerned stakeholders.
The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said it will start implementing the integration of terminal fee in the cost of airline ticket next month. The one-year transition integration program would start on October 1, while the full implementation of the policy would be October 2015.
In a notice, the MIAA said the P550 international passenger service charge or terminal fee should be integrated into the cost of the airline ticket at point of sale. The move is expected to ease the congestion problem at the departure area in NAIA.
