“We appreciate this gesture of our airline partners. I can say that this is the essence of a consultative and participative working relationship. No issue cannot be resolved if everyone is engaged and sincerely dealing with each other,” Monreal said in a statement.

Monreal said passengers with unused tickets may claim the refund for their terminal fees at the MIAA Collection Office located at the ground floor of the MIAA Administration Building in Pasay City.

“To expedite and facilitate the refund process, passenger claimants are advised to bring [the] original copy of their ticket showing [the] record locator number and valid government-issued ID bearing their signature,” Monreal said.

“Proxy refund is also allowed subject to presentation of an authorization from the passenger, original copy of [the] passenger’s ticket showing [the] record locator number, original government-issued ID of the passenger, and original government-issued ID of the representative bearing his signature,” he added.

Cebu Pacific and CebGo also remitted to the MIAA on July 5 a total of P245.6 million for the travel period covering February 1, 2015 to April 30, 2018.

As of July 13, 2018, the MIAA has already received a total of P259.3 million from all airlines. /ee
