Authorities in the Philippines Confirm that Airport Fees will Rise Starting in 2025.

A senior government official has confirmed that beginning in the following year, passengers flying to and from the Philippines should anticipate paying more at the Manila airport.

“Terminal fee will be increased (by 2025),” Jaime Bautista, the transport secretary, informed reporters from the local media on Friday during a press conference. He made it clear, though, that the Cabinet must still approve any planned rate increases, including those for passengers’ terminal fees and airlines’ takeoff and landing fees. In an interview with GMA News, Bautista stated that the Department of Transportation (DOTr) intended to raise terminal fees at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) to Php 950.

The terminal fee for international travel is currently Php550, while the fee for domestic travel is Php200. Filipinos who work overseas, including in the UAE, are not subject to these charges. They are known as overseas Filipino workers, or OFWs.

According to Bautista, the airport has to modernise, so the fees have increased. 24 years ago was the last time rates were raised, he claimed.

The concession agreement between the DOTr and a private company, Naia Infra Corp., valued at Php170.6 billion, was recently finalised. Bautista stated that the increase would enable the corporation to recoup its airport investments.

According to GMA News, Naia Infra Corp made capital investments totaling at least P122.3 billion over 25 years.
