SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines is raising its fuel surcharge by up to US$30 in some sectors. The new surcharges will affect tickets issued on SIA and SilkAir flights from June 24.
It is the third time this year that SIA is raising its fuel surcharge to cope with rising jet fuel prices.
The biggest increase will be for flights between Singapore and gateway cities in the US and Canada, where the surcharge will be US$180, up from US$150.
On regional routes, between Singapore and ASEAN countries, the new surcharge will be US$40, up from US$35. And on all other flights, the surcharge will rise to US$110 from US$95.
SIA said it will continue to monitor the price of jet fuel and review its fuel surcharge accordingly.
Jet fuel prices have risen nearly 50 per cent so far this year. - CNA/vm
