Press: Malaysia Airlines to raise fuel surcharge

13th Jun 2006

Malaysia Airlines will raise fuel surcharge for flights to the Americas, Europe and South Africa by 20% from Friday, a report in The Star newspaper said. The flag carrier issued an advisory last week informing travel agents of the hike in surcharge by $10 to $60 one-way to mitigate rising fuel cost, the newspaper said.

The airline flies to seven destinations in Europe, two each in the United States and South Africa and one in South America.

A Malaysia Airlines official, who declined to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media, confirmed the report. He said the airline last raised fuel surcharge to these long-haul routes on Nov. 15 from $36 to US$50.
