Aviation passenger fuel surcharges adjusted

     The Civil Aviation Department (CAD) today (March 25) approved the passenger fuel surcharges for the period from April 1 to 30.

     The new maximum levels of fuel surcharges will be $254 for short-haul flights and $1,027 for long-haul flights, which represent increases of 5 per cent and 7 per cent from the current maximum levels for short and long-haul flights respectively. The applicable surcharge levels are based on the ticket issue date. The approved fuel surcharge levels of individual airlines have been published on the CAD's website (

     Passenger fuel surcharges seek to allow airlines to partially recover the increase in operational costs due to fluctuations in aviation fuel prices. As the aeronautical authority in Hong Kong, the CAD considers and approves fuel surcharge applications from the airlines in accordance with bilateral Air Services Agreements.

     Passenger fuel surcharges are reviewed regularly by the CAD. The last review was done in February when the maximum surcharge levels approved by the CAD were $242 for short-haul flights and $962 for long-haul flights.
