Effective August 1, 2012, NAIA Terminal 3, NAIA Terminal 2, and Old Manila Domestic Airport will no longer collect terminal fees. Instead, domestic terminal fee of Php 200 will be collected by your Airline Companies upon purchase of your airline ticket.
Airlines will simply remit the money to Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) who uses the funds for airport maintenance and daily operational costs.
The purpose of this new scheme is to minimize the hassle for departing passengers, who have to go through several checkpoints before boarding their flights. According to MIAA General Manager Jose Honrado, the Philippines is just one of two countries that continue to collect terminal fees in airports.
