Starting July 1, airfares will increase as fuel prices continue to rise


The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) has recently issued a resolution raising the fuel surcharge bracket to 11 for the month of July from June’s level 7. 

Local airlines in the Philippines filed applications to impose higher fuel surcharges to cover their increasing fuel expenses. 

Fuel surcharges are additional fees collected by airlines to help them recover fuel costs, Inquirer explained. These are separate from the base fare, which is the actual amount paid by the passenger for a seat. 

Starting July 1, airlines in the Philippines are allowed to collect fuel charges ranging from P355 to P1,038 per passenger for domestic flights and P1,172.07 to P8,714.84 for international flights. 

Under Level 11, flights from the Philippines to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia and Brunei will have a fuel surcharge of P1,172.07. Those going to Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Guam should be ready to pay an additional P1,620.99, while the applicable surcharge for flights to North America, United Kingdom and the Netherlands amount to P8,299.85.
