Flight fuel surcharges lifted

China will suspend fuel surcharges on domestic flights from today due to a fall in aviation fuel prices, China's top economic planner and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) jointly announced Wednesday.


Future fuel surcharges would be decided on aviation fuel price changes, they said.


The National Development and Reform Commission and the CAAC on Dec 25 lowered the surcharge from 150 yuan ($22) to 40 yuan for flights beyond 800 km, and from 80 yuan to 20 yuan for those under 800 km.
