The application of fuel surcharges may be subject to regulatory approval or variation in some individual markets.

 

The adjustments will offer only partial relief from the higher operating costs arising from increases in the price of jet fuel.

 

Singapore Airlines will continue to closely monitor the price of fuel and keep surcharges under constant review.
