AirAsia to reintroduce fuel surcharge Posted: Tue 3 May, 2011 2:50 PM

Air Asia has announced that it will introduce fuel surcharges for all domestic and international routes starting May 3, 2011.

The low-cost carrier had abolished the surcharge in November 2008 but had to reinstate it due to rising fuel prices up to more than US$140 per barrel. Kathleen Tan, regional head of Commercial, Air Asia, was quoted in Travel Daily Asia as having said that the rising jet fuel prices had made it imperative for them to reintroduce the fuel surcharge, despite their best efforts to resist it for as long as they could. Tan added that they hoped this would only be a temporary measure and that Air Asia would continue to ensure their fares remain low despite the fuel surcharge.

The new surcharges will range from MYR10 on domestic flights in Malaysia to MYR90 for long-haul AirAsia X flights to London, Paris, and Christchurch.
