Chinese airlines to raise fuel surcharge

06-22-2010 13:50 BJT

Chinese airlines are set to raise their fuel surcharge on some Asian routes. The hike is due to increasing international crude oil prices.

On July 1st, Air China will raise the fuel surcharge on its South Korea-China route, from 22 US dollars to 26 US dollars. Surcharge on flights from China to Singapore and Malaysia will increase from 400 RMB from 300 RMB. China South will also raise the surcharge on their flights from China to Singapore and Malaysia by the same amount. Chinese airlines have already increased fuel surcharges several times this year.

Analysts say China's top economic planner has a standard for the adjustment of fuel surcharges. And as long as airlines don't cross that standard, the sky's the limit.
