Chinese Airlines Raise Fuel Surcharges
China Daily, September 6th, 2012
Chinese airlines have raised fuel surcharges on domestic routes because of rising fuel costs.
Fuel surcharges for routes shorter than 800 kilometers were increased from 50 yuan ($7.87) to 70 yuan, while surcharges for routes of more than 800 km were increased from 100 yuan to 130 yuan.
Airlines lifted the fuel surcharges for international routes on Saturday, the first increase since June.
Analysts stated the fuel-surcharge hike will increase the price of tourist products by at least 20 percent for the upcoming National Day holiday in the first week of October.
