Davao International Airport Fee Increase

Bad news for those Air Travelers out there. Davao International Airport increased it's Domestic Terminal Fee from 50.00 pesos to 200.00 pesos starting today, August 28. That's a 500% increase.

This increase in terminal fee is a mandate by Department Order No. 2007-25 issued by the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC). The said increase takes effect in various airports all over the country.

I have been very proud before because DIA offers the cheapest Domestic Terminal Fee in the country. But now, at 200.00 pesos, it is charging the same rate as that of Ninoy International Airport.

According to Councilor Lavina, the 500% hike in airport fee is the result of the lack of airport revenue since its opening 2003.

Hmm does this mean that all airport terminals will charge 200? I was proud before that Iloilo's airport charges only P30 but it's facilities is similar to NAIA such as tube going to the airplane, aircon on the waiting room, xray scanners etc..
