Manila Ninoy Aquino Int'l airport is planning to charge Xiamen Airlines (MF, Xiamen) at least PHP15 million peso (USD280,000) for the damage and extra work caused by a crash landing of one of the Chinese carrier's B737-800s on August 16, 2018, GMA News has reported.

"Right now, there are only two aspects that we just had computed. I think [the bill is] in the range of PHP15 million but there is still a lot of cost [to be calculated]," airport general manager Ed Monreal said.

The airport has so far only included the costs related to the removal of the aircraft from the grass and the repair of the damages incurred during the runway excursion. It still plans to add the opportunity cost, meaning all the revenues lost due to the closure of the runway and other disturbances.

The airline said it would cooperate with the airport.

Xiamen Airlines' B737-800 B-5498 (msn 37574) veered off the runway at Manila after landing in bad weather on the evening of August 16. No injuries were reported, although the aircraft sustained some damage.
