The Government Fares Agreement (GFA) is an initiative of the PS-PhilGEPS and the Department of Budget and Management which partnered with the three biggest commercial airlines in the Philippines – Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific and AirAsia Philippines, to extend discounts on airfare for the whole of government. The GFA assures all government entities of discounts from 9 to 8% off their regular fares, and use of their online portal for bookings 24/7. Several other benefits such as waived rebooking fees and baggage allowances are stipulated in the GFA. Moreover, airline ticket is now considered as a common-use requirement of the government as stated in the GPPB Resolution No. 11-2017.
Representatives from different government agencies actively participated during the meeting’s open forum.
