I've never seen this. Pax is Latin for "peace". Therefore per pax means nothing to me.
PAX is the abreviation for "passengers" (http://www.acronymfinder.com/af-query.asp?Acronym=pax&string=exact )

I guess the use has been extended to the case when "passenger" is not in the plural, then to "per person". I just did a research on Google, and found that it is often used in relation with "packages" (holidays etc...) Maybe it has extended that far? (pax > package(s) ?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
it is widely used in MyE Malaysian English but when i googled http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=per+pax&meta = i also found that it is used in other countries too! It is usually used with holidays, meals, hotels and stuff related Emotion: tongue tied
So then it must mean, as you said, per person.
hmmm was that message for me? Emotion: tongue tied I'm not so sure myself Emotion: stick out tongue but I think it could be Emotion: stick out tongue

what does the abbreviation PAX mean?
Thank-you for the meaning of Pax.
per Wikipedia:

Pax — an abbreviation for "passengers" used by the travel industry. Some hotels now use it to mean individual guests opposed to rooms
