Airport Terminal Fee – Again a little step forward

Airport Terminal Fee

Airport Terminal Fee is not yet eradicated but Mactan-Cebu makes a step forward.

GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corp. (GMCAC), the company that operates Mactan-Cebu airport, and Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA) announced that the Terminal Fee for international flights will be included in the ticket price from June 1, 2019. Short: No more terminal fee in Cebu airport!

All the airlines will integrate the fee in their ticketing systems. So all passengers can expect that in the next few months, the convenience of the airport will improve. Up to now 18 airlines have signed the memorandum of agreement (MOA).

There will be a three-month transition period that will end on Aug. 31, 2019. By September, all airlines must already integrate the terminal fee into their system. The terminal fee booths will be retained to serve those passengers who booked their tickets early, and to give partner airlines time to implement the integration.

The terminal fee for Terminal 2, which caters to international passengers, will remain at PHP 850. But it will be included among all the other taxes and fees of your airline ticket.

Please inform your visitors and guests

Many people visiting the Philippines are not informed about this outdated fee. They arrive at the airport with only some left over pesos in the pocket and get confronted with the fee. 

And please also be aware of the TIEZA Travel Tax. This anachronistic monster still haunts most international airports in the Philippines. This tax is to be paid by most Philippines citizens and expats having stayed more than one year within the country. More information about exemptions can be found here
