Singapore Airlines and subsidiary SilkAir will once again increase surcharges in light of global fuel prices, which continue to skyrocket and are now 30 percent higher than the beginning of the year.
For all tickets issued with both carriers on or after April 21, the new levy will apply, representing an increase of between US$4 and US$32 depending on distance and the class of travel.
For flights between Singapore and southeast Asian gateways as well as between the UAE and Kuwait or Egypt, the surcharge for an economy class ticket will increase to US$34. For long-haul flights between Singapore and Europe, South Africa or the Americas, the minimum surcharge for an economy ticket starts from US$162.
Transfer flights flying between Europe and Australia or New Zealand via Singapore will be charged a levy starting from US$242.
