EMIRATES DROP FUEL SURCHARGE

Emirates has withdrawn its fuel surcharge on all tickets after the recent decrease in oil prices. The airline only introduced the surcharge on April 18.

“In line with the recent decrease in fuel prices, Emirates has removed its fuel surcharge on all tickets,” said Tim Clark, president of Emirates. “The removal of this surcharge reflects our long-standing commitment to our customers. We promised our customers from the outset that we would eliminate the surcharge as soon as it was commercially viable and this has now been done. We continue to closely monitor the situation.”

Clark confirmed that fuel costs makes up 43% of Emirates’ total expenses and warned that should oil prices continue to hover around the $130 a barrel mark until the end of the year, it will be a tough year.
