Virgin Blue Reduces Fuel Surcharges

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 12 November 2008

Virgin Blue is to reduce its fuel surcharges by 20% on Virgin Blue domestic and Pacific Blue trans-Tasman and Pacific Island flights following a decline in record high global oil prices over recent months.

The fuel surcharge has been reduced to A$19 for a one-way domestic flight and A$35 for Pacific Blue and Polynesian Blue one way international flights.

Virgin Blue last increased its fuel surcharge in February 2008 in response to successive record hikes in the cost of jet fuel.

"We are keeping our word. We are reluctant to increase the cost of air travel by even a small amount, however as jet fuel prices continued to rise and rise to extreme levels, like all airlines we were forced to introduce a levy to cover those costs," said Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey. "But we have always promised that if the cost of fuel reversed, we would gladly reverse the surcharge accordingly. That is what we are doing, because that is fair."
