The falling price of oil has had many implications world-wide, but there’s one development that will catch the attention of airline travelers in China: the aviation fuel surcharge is expected to be reduced all the way to zero next month.
As Sun Xuejun of Zhongyu Analysis points out, the aviation fuel surcharge has dropped a total nine times in the past four months. At present, trips over 800 kilometers have a fuel surcharge of RMB 30, having already dropped from RMB 120. For trips under 800 kilometers, the surcharge is even lower at RMB 10 after having been discounted from RMB 60.
While this adjustment won’t be expected to last forever, it would be a nice thing for airline passengers to enjoy besides the usual things that accompany air travel: delays, air rage, and impatient passengers.
