Bangsamoro Airport Authority (BAA), an attached agency under the Ministry of Transportation and Communications inked a Memorandum of Agreement with Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific on the Domestic Service Passenger Service Charge yesterday, Jan 20.

As outlined in the agreement, the DPSC, also known as the Passenger Terminal Fee of PhP 200.00, which is levied on tickets purchased for flights departing from BARMM airports, will be collected by the air carriers and remitted directly to the Bangsamoro Treasury Office.
