Yes, you’ve read that right!
For travelers like me, a few reduction of costs, no matter how small helps a lot! Especially when it comes to trips outside of the country.
From the rate of PHP 750 for international travel, rates are being reduced to PHP 550 starting February 1, 2011, apparently the Security Development Charge Program which started in 2007 will end therefore the decrease in the terminal fee costs.
Though the travel tax is still at 1620 for economy class tickets, this small discount of PHP200 is still good news!
