AirAsia Maintains Its Low Airfares and No Fuel Surcharge on Domestic and International Flights
MANILA, Philippines – AirAsia just stated that they won’t be adding fuel surcharge on their domestic and international fares. The Worlds Best Low-Cost Airline is committed in giving its loyal customers low fares. CEO Captain for AirAsia Philippines Dexter Comendador said that they aim to encourage more people to travel and boost the tourism economy that’s why there won’t be fuel surcharge for the low cost airlines on both domestic and international routes. This is such good news for first-time and seasoned travelers.
The imposition for the passenger fuel surcharge of domestic and international flights have been given a go signal by the Civil Aeronautics Boards (CAB) last September. They also approved the matrix for fuel surcharge of a 60-day jet fuel MOPS (Mean of Platts Singapore), prices of which is fixed for that two month period.
There are five categories for fuel surcharge of domestic flights which is determined through flight distance. This is according to the published and approved matrix. CAB estimated that airfares for domestic routes can have additional costs of more than Php769 and Php9,860 for international flights and should be carried by the local carriers.
Comendador added that the airline company is studying how the high oil price is affecting the operations. They’re researching how the company can create more ways to counteract the high price of oil which he said can be done through “adopting cost-efficient measures across the network or within the AirAsia Group”.
