DMIA: Diosdado Macapagal International Airport

DMIA or Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (now Clark 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.

Read: DMIA

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.


  1. Mas okay namn 2 kysa sa sa lumang terminal sa pasay pero ang skt sa ulo ng terminal fee pa rin 600:(

  2. @sunny - mura na yan, P750 sa Pasay airport. =)

  3. un parking ba nila is parang park & fly? does it mean that if I leave my car for 4 days it will cost me 480? (parking=120 + security=360)

  4. ^ one time fee lang yung parking fee so P30 + (P90 x no. of days).

    nung nag 3days 2nights (fri-sun) na alis kasi kami, P210 lang bayad namin.

  5. Planning to get park and fly services in dmia nextweek. Any bad experience?

    1. hi! we didn't have any bad experience. =D

    2. Two years ago, I went to SG and KL and left my car for five nights in DMIA. Pagdating ko, okay pa naman si car. Hehehe. Maalikabok lang nga.

    3. Yes, that is really the problem pag open parking noh. :)
