Chinese Airlines Dump Fuel Surcharge on Domestic Flights as Prices Fall
Multiple Chinese airlines have abandoned a two-month-old fuel surcharge on domestic flights as jet fuel prices have fallen below the threshold that allows carriers to charge the extra fee.
Air China Ltd. (601111.SH), the country’s flag carrier, stopped charging the fee on domestic flights on Wednesday, according to a statement from the Shanghai- and Hong Kong-listed firm (link in Chinese). The surcharge will remain in place for international fares.
