Singapore Airlines will reduce fuel surcharges for
tickets issued from today onward for travel on short and medium-haul flights,
following a recent easing of jet fuel prices.
When the surcharges were introduced, Singapore
Airlines committed to keeping their application under ongoing review, and to
make adjustments in response to sustained changes in the price of jet fuel.
The following surcharges will apply for tickets
purchased for travel on Singapore Airlines flights, on or after Tuesday 9
Singapore and cities in South East Asia (ASEAN countries): Reduce from
USD40 to USD36 per sector
Singapore and cities in Europe and South Africa, as well as flights
between North America and Hong Kong/ Seoul/ Tokyo/ Taipei/ Frankfurt/
Moscow: Remains at USD110 per sector

Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, as
well as flights between Dubai – Istanbul, Dubai – Moscow and Bangkok –
Tokyo): Reduce from USD110 to USD100 per sector
There will be four tiers of surcharges, from the
existing three, to differentiate between medium and longer-haul flights.
Collections from the fuel surcharges will still only
give partial relief from the increased expenditure on jet fuel, which remain at
historically high levels despite the recent correction.
