AirAsia Group have announced 26th January 2015, that they have abolished the fuel surcharges on airfares, effective immediately.
The removal of the surcharge applies to fares booked on all its airlines and long haul affiliates AirAsia X, Thai AirAsia X and Indonesia AirAsia X, in line with declining global oil prices.
In announcing the move today, AirAsia’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said, “We are a high- value, low-fare airline and we will continue to strive to make flying as affordable as possible. This decision has been made in November 2014, which was in line with declining global oil prices. However, we are only able to implement it now, but we believe removing fuel surcharge and reducing travel costs will be a huge boost to the tourism industry. This will be a plus point for consumers, but the economy will also benefit from this as the tourism industry is a great job creator.”
In an accompanying statement issued by AirAsia, it was noted that the removal of the fuel surcharge will help to further reduce travel costs stimulating greater demand for travel and tourism. The statement added “With the removal of fuel surcharge from its fares, guests will be able to find domestic flights from as low as RM19 one way all-in, and international flights from RM49 one way all- in”.
