Singapore Airlines to reduce fuel charges

13 Feb 2015 by Clement Huang

In light of declining fuel prices, Singapore Airlines has joined the likes of Qantas (see here) and Air Asia (see here) and announced it will reduce the fuel surcharges on tickets.

The reduced rates are set to kick in for tickets issues on or after February 26, 2015.

The new fuel surcharge will also apply to flights operated by SIA's regional carrier Silk Air. There has been no announcement yet on whether low-cost carriers Scoot or Tigerair, which are wholly owned by SIA, will follow suit. 

Overall, customers can look forward to a surcharge decrease of between US$5 and US$83 per sector, depending on the distance and class of travel.

A table showing the new surcharge rates is listed below:
