AsBAA supports flight fee increase by the Philippines’ regulators


The Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) has welcomed the increase of user fees by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).

The last increase of the user fees of the Philippine government was 25 years ago and AsBAA believes it is time that user fees are adjusted to reflect the tasks CAAP must perform to uphold international standards of aviation safety.

With the increase of user fees, CAAP can now hire additional qualified and trained flight operations and airworthiness inspectors and train them to develop and improve systems in keeping with ever-evolving international safety standards.

CAAP can then implement the new user fees on a staggered basis as the new improved services and qualified and trained personnel (QTP) come online and are made available for improved safety standards in the Philippines.
