During the technical working group hearing of the House transportation committee, Wirlou Samodia of the CAB Legal Division, said that the resolution of the board to order airlines to give the said discount will be performed.

Samodia said that the technology which will be used by the companies are now being iron out.

If customers availed the 20% discount after securing a ticket online, they will still undergo a verification process. They also need to present their government issued ID when they check-in.

The 20% discount has to be returned if it is proven that a customer submitted a fake ID during the online booking process.
