MIAA Mandates Domestic Carriers to Collect P200 Terminal Fees

The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) mandated all domestic carriers to collect the P200 DPSC (Domestic Passenger Service Charge) or what we commonly know as the terminal fee, for flights originating from Metro Manila. This will be effective this month of August. The move was stipulated in the Revenue Memorandum Circular 34-2012 issued by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) on August 1.
This circular is being issued to standardize the procedure for invoicing, recording and tax treatment of the integration of the DPSC in airline tickets and the service fees received by domestic airline companies
Terminal Fee used to go on a separate collection but this time around, it is will be incorporated in the carriers fee collection. The payments will then be remitted to the MIAA. In the official receipts, the DPSC has to be reflected, broken down to show the ff:
  1. MIAA’s share: P165.18
  2. 12% value-added tax: P19.82) and
  3. The aviation security fee: P15.00
On the same ground, the MIAA is also on the way of preparing the same collection adjustment for the international airlines.

This significant change in the collection of fees is hoped to make the airline and airport operations more efficient in the country. Philippine carriers already signed an agreement with MIAA in May, about this development.

If this ventures successfully, it will mean a lot to the passengers. Hopefully, the queuing torture we endure before will be eliminated. It will also mean a more productive and seamless airport operation. While we are still far from what some of our neighboring Asian countries are offering in their aviation systems, this service integration is no doubt a positive move. Later on, we hope that smart systems will be introduced more in the Philippine airports.

A lot of us will be spending some vacations somewhere due to the current long weekend holiday we got in the country - this enhanced system in the airports shall make the trips more enjoyable. Don't you agree?

  7. Oh good one less line to skip especially if you're catching a flight. But will you see the breakdown of your terminal fee charge in your receipt? Will they issue an electronic ticket? How would you know if you were charged properly?
