AirAsia to re-impose fuel surcharge starting 3 May

Low-cost carrier AirAsia Bhd has finally succumbed to the pressure of persisting high fuel prices and will re-introduce fuel surcharge ranging from RM10 to RM30 per flight after having abolished its fuel surcharge policy in late 2008.

AirAsia said in a statement yesterday the surcharge would be imposed starting May 3 for all domestic and international routes. All flight bookings made before May 3 are not affected.

AirAsia said it needed to re-introduce fuel surcharge to offset against escalating jet fuel prices, which have exceeded US$140 per barrel.

All domestic flights and international flights under two hours will be imposed with a RM10 fuel surcharge per way, RM20 (one way) for flights between two and three hours and RM30 (one way) for flights above three hours.

Meanwhile, long-haul affiliate AirAsia X will impose fuel surcharge ranging from RM50 to RM90 per way depending on destination.
