Singapore Airlines to increase fuel surcharges

In light of the continuing rise in the price of jet fuel, Singapore Airlines will increase its fuel surcharge for tickets issued on or after 21 April 2011.

Jet fuel prices have risen more than 30% since the beginning of the year. The price of jet fuel is now more than USD138 per barrel, which is the highest level in two years.

The new fuel surcharge levels shown below will apply to Singapore Airlines and SilkAir flights. They represent an increase of between USD4 and USD32 per sector, depending on the distance and class of travel.

The application of fuel surcharges may be subject to regulatory approval or variation in some individual markets.

The adjustments will offer only partial relief from the higher operating costs arising from increases in the price of jet fuel.
