Hongkong flight surcharges to rise in October

28 Sep 2010

Airlines flying out of Hongkong, have been allowed by the Civil Aviation Department, to raise fuel surcharges in October 2010. These include Cathay Pacific (CX) and subsidiary Dragonair, Singapore Airlines and All Nippon Airways (ANA) as well as 36 other carriers that operate from Hong Kong International Airport.

Cathay Pacific’s fuel surcharge will increase by 3 percent for short-haul flights – from HK$97 (US$12.5) to HK$100 (US$12.8) – and 5 percent for long-haul flights – from HK$481 (US$62) to HK$506 (US$65). The surcharge levels will depend on ticket dates.

Singapore Airlines’ increase repeats that of CX: 3 percent for short haul and 5 percent for long haul. ANA, however, will use a uniform rate of HK$100 (US$12.90) for all journeys, no matter the length.
