Singapore Airlines to increase fuel surcharge
Singapore Airlines (SIA) will increase its fuel surcharge for tickets effective May 12 as a result of the sustained increase in jet fuel prices in recent months, the carrier said on Wednesday, reported dpa.
The new levels apply to SIA and subsidiary SilkAir flights. The prices go up by 5 US dollars to 35 US dollars for flights between Singapore and Association of South-East Asian countries, and up by 20 US dollars to 150 US dollars for flights between the city-state and gateways in the United States and Canada.
A 15-US-dollar increase to 95 US dollars applies to all other flights.
"The adjustments will offer only partial relief of higher operating costs resulting from increase in the price of jet fuel," SIA said.
