Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) announced that the terminal fee for international passengers will be included in the airline tickets for international flights sold outside the airport. This has since been applied since September 1, 2019 (Sunday).
The airport management established a procedure in dealing with tickets with terminal fees integrated in the ticket and those tickets that have no IPSC, especially those bought (issued or re-issued) before September 1.
However, there are types of international passengers who are exempted from the collection of terminal fees, as mandated by the law. According to Avigael Ratcliffe, corporate communications junior manager of GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC), children below two years old, with or without any airline ticket, as well as overseas contract workers are exempt from the terminal fee. She also stated that passengers whose entry was denied are also allowed to leave off payment of the IPSC.
