DMIA or Diosdado Macapagal International Airport is one of the international airports here in the Philippines and it is located in Central Luzon so I never thought that I would be here since I live in South area and Pasay airport is more accessible to me.
Last year I was able to book a promo ticket from Air Asia. I have no hesitation in booking the flight even I am aware that I have to travel all the way to Clark. You can never say no with the price even I add the gas, toll fee and parking fee.
DMIA Parking fee: P30
Security fee: P90 per day
Other option is ride a bus, you can check Philtranco website for the bus schedules in Pasay and Megamall station.
Fare: around P300-350 per way
After few months of waiting I thought our trip will be cancelled because of typhoon “Falcon”. I had sleepless nights because I keep on checking for weather updates and I even followed kuya Kim Atienza’s twitter account just to be updated. lol! I did not receive any notice from Air Asia that our flight would be cancelled so we still went to DMIA last Friday even the weather was not good. I just keep on praying that everything will be fine and thank God because there’s no more rain when we reached the airport.
The DMIA building is not that big compared to our Pasay Airport but the runway is long and wide and it is also considered as one of the biggest aviation complexes here in Asia. The airport staffs are all friendly, nice and approachable.
Travel Tax: P1620 for adult
P810 for children + P200 processing fee for reduced tax.
Terminal Fee: P600
There is money changer, food shops and duty free shops inside the airport.
