Beginning January 1, 2021, both domestic and international passenger terminal fees at Clark International Airport (CRK) will be integrated into the cost of airline tickets.
“The integration of the terminal fee has been one of our priority projects CRK,” Bi Yong Chungunco, chief executive officer of CRK operator Luzon International Premier Airport Development Corp. (LIPAD), said in a statement.
Chungunco said this will make passengers’ journey “as hassle-free and seamless as possible.”
A total of 17 airlines signed the memorandum of agreement (MOA) with LIPAD to begin the transition to terminal fee integration, the operator said.
All passengers who will purchase their tickets beginning January 1, 2021 will no longer have to pay for their terminal fee at the airport.
Passengers who bought their tickets prior to the effectivity date may proceed to the payment counters located inside the terminal.
Terminal fee exemptions will still apply to select individuals, particularly infants below two years old for both domestic and international flights and overseas Filipino workers for international flights.
Other airports such as Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and Mactan-Cebu International Airport have already integrated the terminal fees for domestic flights into the airline tickets since 2013. Terminal fees for international flights at NAIA were included into the airline ticket in 2017.
