EMIRATES INTRODUCES FUEL SURCHARGE

Emirates has introduced a fuel surcharge to help offset the rising fuel costs.

Passengers travelling to the US on economy tickets will be charged AED150 each way from April 18, rising to AED520 for those in business or first class. The surcharge for a return trip in the Middle East or to the airline’s South Asian destinations will be AED40 each way for economy travellers, rising to AED130 for those in business or first class.
For those heading to Europe, Africa, the Far East, Australia or New Zealand, the levy each way will be AED80 for economy passengers and AED320 for business and first class.

In a statement, Emirates said although it had absorbed “substantial costs” caused by oil fluctuations “the surcharge gives us the ability to respond faster to market conditions, rather than a lengthier process of incorporating them into fares. The changes will also give us the ability to decrease prices quickly, where appropriate”.
