What is Airline Terminal Fee?

An airline terminal fee is charged for all air shipments as a fee for handling the cargo.

If applicable, an airline terminal fee will often appear as both an origin charge and a destination charge on your Seabay quote or invoice. However, depending on the airline, it may be included in the air freight fee, rather than listed as a separate origin charge.
