Inclusion of terminal fee in airline tickets nixed

Jan. 12, 2015

The automatic inclusion of the terminal fee in airline tickets which would take effect on February 1 is against the rights of airline passengers, militant solons said Monday.

Bayan Muna Rep. Neri Colmenares said he will take up the issue in a hearing on January 20.

Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate believes that the Manila International Airport Authority and the Department of Transportation and Communications “should not even be collecting terminal fees if we are to gauge the dismal service and facilities of our airports.”

He also said that the funding from the national budget for airports is already “sufficient.”
