AirAsia Removes Fuel Surcharge

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 27 January 2015
 

Declining global oil prices has allowed AirAsia to remove the fuel surcharge across all of its airlines in the group, as well as its low-cost long haul affiliates AirAsia X, Thai AirAsia X and Indonesia AirAsia X.

AirAsia was one of the first airlines to abolish the fuel surcharge for all its domestic and international flights back in 2008, however rocketing fuel prices forced the airline to re-introduce fuel surcharge into its fares in 2011.

AirAsias Group Chief Executive Officer, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, said, We are a high-value, low-fare airline and we will continue to strive to make flying as affordable as possible. This decision has been made in December 2014, which was in line with declining global oil prices. However, we are only able to implement it now, but we believe removing fuel surcharge and reducing travel costs will be a huge boost to the tourism industry. This will be a plus point for consumers, but the economy will also benefit from this as the tourism industry is a great job creator.
