STUDENTS IN ZAMBOANGA are now exempted from terminal fees or domestic passenger service charge at all airports owned and operated by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines or CAAP, according to Zamboanga Airport Manager Socorro Reyes.

Reyes said the exemption is based on a recent memorandum issued by CAAP Director General Jim Sydiongco. She said the exemption, which began on August 1, covers students who are enrolled in preschool to college, including in trade, arts and technical vocational schools and training centers.

“Qualified students who will avail of the exemption shall apply for a student exemption certificate at Malasakit Help Desks located in airports. Student passengers with flights starting August 1 and purchased previously within a period of one year may seek for refund of the terminal fee that was integrated into their airline tickets purchased at point of sale or online,” she said.

Reyes said all Malasakit Help Desks shall serve as refund counters until such time the airlines are able to facilitate the exemption in their booking system. Airports across the country charge a terminal fee of P150 per person, but Reyes said not included in the exemption are students of dancing and driving schools, schools of culinary arts and short-term courses and students taking up medicine, law, masteral and doctoral degrees.
