Aviation passenger fuel surcharges

     The Civil Aviation Department (CAD) today (June 25) approved the passenger fuel surcharges for July for the period from July 1 to 31.

     The maximum levels of fuel surcharges for July will be maintained at $200 for short-haul flights and $859 for long-haul flights. 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 May when the maximum surcharge levels approved by the CAD were $200 for short-haul flights and $859 for long-haul flights.
