MANILA, Philippines—After the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) announced that the airport terminal fee would finally be integrated in the price of an international airline ticket beginning Feb. 1, overseas Filipino worker (OFW) groups filed on Monday an urgent plea in a Pasay court to resolve all pending motions related to the terminal fee they had earlier filed.

In a motion submitted to Pasay City Regional Trial Court Branch 109, the groups led by OFW Family party-list Rep.
