Aviation passenger fuel surcharges

     The Civil Aviation Department (CAD) today (December 29) announced the passenger fuel surcharges for the period from January 1 to 31 of 2016.

     The maximum levels of fuel surcharges for January 2016 will be $24 for short-haul flights and $109 for long-haul flights, which represent decreases of about 4 per cent and 3 per cent from the current maximum levels for short and long haul flights respectively.

     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 by the CAD on a monthly basis. 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 (
