SIA and SilkAir flag another increase in fuel surcharge

SINGAPORE Airlines and its regional wing SilkAir will raise the fuel surcharge for tickets issued on or after January 27, marking the second price hike by both carriers in less than two months.

Prices will go up by between US$3 and US$27 per sector, depending on the distance and class of travel.

In a statement, Singapore Airlines said this was “a result of the recent sharp and sustained escalation in the price of jet fuel”, which had now risen above US$110 per barrel.

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