[PHILIPPINES AIRPORT] Guide to Philippine Airports’ (Manila, Clark, Cebu, Davao & Others) Terminal Fees as of February 2020

Puerto Princesa Airport


Planning to explore the Philippines one island at a time? Better start preparing now for that epic vacation!

Since the Philippines is an archipelago, you’ll encounter various modes of transportation to reach each of its islands. The most common transfer is via air travel. Though some flights might be costly, but it’s your best option if faster travel time is what you need.


Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2

Aside from having your plane ticket, there is an important fee that you should keep a budget on. So, before your big travel day, make sure to check out below the updated guide on airport terminal fees:

What is the Airport Terminal Fee?

Also known as PSC or Philippine Passenger Service Charge, the airport terminal fee is the airport tax/ exit fee that is collected from passengers departing from Philippine Airports by the Philippine Government or Philippine Airport Authorities. The said fee is used to decongest the departure areas of the airport’s terminals and to help improve the airport’s services and facilities.  

For domestic flights, the airport terminal fee ranges from PHP 50 - PHP 220 per person, while PHP 600 - PHP 1, 135 per person for international flights.

Below is the list of major Philippine (PH) airports and information on when and where you need to pay the Airport Terminal Fees:

Is the Airport Terminal Fee and Philippine Travel Tax the same?

No, the Philippine Travel Tax and Airport Terminal fees are different charges. But, if you’re a foreigner traveling in the Philippines on a short visit or simply transiting you don’t have to worry about paying this one. It is imposed by the government and only collected from Filipinos traveling abroad and foreign passport holders who stayed in the Philippines for over a year upon the existing date of departure. Exempted from paying the Philippine Travel Tax are:
·         Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs)
·         Infants (2 years old and below)
·         Filipinos who are permanent residents abroad staying in the Philippines less than a year

Below are the Philippine Travel Tax Rates:

Travel Tax Rates
First Class Passage
Economy Class Passage
Full Travel Tax
P 2700
P 1620
Standard Reduced Travel Tax
P 1350
P 810
Privileged Reduced Travel Tax for a Dependent of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW)
P 400
P 300

Whether you’re traveling abroad or domestic, be mindful of the other things that you might have to pay during your trip. Other than having a well-planned itinerary don’t forget to keep a secure allowance for these necessary fees for a smooth and well-budgeted trip.
