This week we have released a special feature to our booking platform. The special feature is relevant for crew managers and crew operators arranging flights for Filipino seafarers. By Philippian law, Filipino seafarers are allowed to travel from Manila to elsewhere in the world with a travel tax exemption. This effectively means cheaper flights for Filipino seamen. The tax exemption only goes when the seafarer is Filipino and flying from Manila.
The following Filipino citizens are exempted from the payment of travel tax pursuant to Sec. 2 of PD 1183 (Philippian Law), as amended:
There are other individuals qualified to avail of exemption. Please review the complete list here. The table also shows requirements to avail of the exemption. Note: In all cases, you will be required to bring your Original Passport.
Does a passenger qualify to get a discount?
One of the items below has to be presented for check-in at the Manila (MNL) airport:
If a passenger cannot present the required documents, the tax shall be paid directly at the airport. Any associated penalties imposed by airlines can apply.
Happy bookings 🙂
Recently we released another unique and outstanding feature to our platform: the “Airport Suggester”. We created this feature to help crew managers find airports worldwide, ultimately to enable them to book the best flight they need. Now you do not have to remember, search or Google all worldwide airports. You can just find them at our C Teleport platform.
After a booking is being made, no details can be changed anymore. The ticket is being booked to the travelling passenger, which cannot be altered, only cancelled. Still, sometimes passenger passport details need to be changed, for instance when a passport expires and old details were still in the crew manager’s database. The rightful passport details should always be assigned to the ticket.
