Singapore Airlines and its regional wing, SilkAir, will raise fuel surcharges for tickets issued after December 2, 2010, due to increasing jet fuel prices. The prices apply to tickets booked from most cities around the region, except Hong Kong due to the city’s own surcharge regulations.

Both carriers will raise fuel charges to US$38 for first class tickets, US$33 for business class tickets and US$25 for economy class tickets on flights around the Southeast Asia region.

On routes between the Lion City and European destinations, Singapore Airlines will raise fuel surcharges to US$107 for economy class tickets, US$119 for business class tickets and US$126 for first class tickets. Flights between the city and the Americas will see economy ticket surcharges increased to US$191,business class ticket surcharges to US$198 and first class ticket surcharges to US$205.

Meanwhile, SilkAir will increase business class ticket surcharges to US$91 and economy class ticket surcharges to US$80 for all destinations outside of Southeast Asia.

This is the first fuel surcharge increase to be carried out since June 2008.
