Singapore Airlines to Increase Fuel Surcharge
Singapore Airlines has announced that due to the sustained escalation in the price of jet fuel it will increase its fuel surcharge to $40 from $35 per sector on regional routes, for tickets issued on or after June 24, 2008.
The airline has also announced that it will increase its fuel surcharge to $180 from $150 per sector for flights between Singapore and gateways in the US and Canada, on a single-sector basis; while fuel surcharge on all other flights will be increased to $110 from $95 per sector.
The new surcharge is subject to official approval in some markets, and some local variations may apply where regulatory approvals dictate. The new levels will apply to Singapore Airlines and its wholly-owned subsidiary SilkAir.
Singapore Airlines said that it will continue to monitor the price of jet fuel and keep the application of the fuel surcharge under active review.
