Cebu-Mactan Airport Now Collects Terminal Fees When Booking Airline Tickets

Starting today March 1, Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA) will start collecting terminal fees when booking airline tickets. The terminal fee in Mactan-Cebu International Airport is 200 Pesos.

The move is part of the on-going effort to improve customer experience in local airports in the country. Last August 2012, Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has begun implementing the same scheme on passengers using the Terminal 1, 2 and 3. The results show improved passenger flow, saving time usually spent lining up in terminal fee booths

Plans to Expand Mactan-Cebu International Airport

Part of government program to modernize the country's infrastructure is to construct a new world-class international airport to expand the second busiest airport in the country.
