SilkAir to Increase Fuel Surcharges


9 March 2012

SilkAir will increase its fuel surcharge for all tickets issued on or after 17 March 2011 for travel on its flights, as a result of continued escalation in the price of jet fuel.

The following surcharges will apply for tickets purchased for travel on SilkAir flights on and after 17 March 2011. They represent an increase of between USD2 and USD10 per sector, depending on the distance and class of travel.

• Between Singapore and cities in South East Asia:
Business Class: to be increased from USD37 to USD41 per sector
Economy Class: to be increased from USD28 to USD30 per sector

• Between Singapore and all other SilkAir points:
Business Class: to be increased from USD100 to USD110 per sector
Economy Class: to be increased from USD88 to USD96 per sector

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

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

Like its parent airline, SilkAir will continue to monitor the price of jet fuel and keep the application of the level of fuel surcharge under active review.
