Jetstar to increase fuel surcharges on international services
Jetstar will increase international fuel surcharges on flights booked on or after 17 January 2008 in response to record fuel prices.
The fuel surcharge on Jetstar domestic services will remain unchanged at $19 (including GST).
The fuel surcharge on Jetstar’s trans Tasman and international long haul flights to destinations in Asia and the Pacific will rise by AUD$10.
- One way fuel surcharge on trans Tasman
services to increase from $45 to $55
- One way fuel surcharge on services to Asia and the Pacific to increase from $98 to $108
Jetstar Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce said the increase was part of the Qantas Group’s response to record fuel prices with crude oil recently rising above US$100 a barrel.
