Airliners jack up fuel surcharge

The hike in fuel price of Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF)-domestic by the Nepal Oil Corporation yesterday late evening has forced the domestic airliners to revise the fuel surcharge upwards on their truck sectors.
According to the revised fuel surcharge, the Kathmandu-Bharatpur airfare will be more expensive by Rs 145 and Kathmandu-Dhangadi airfare will see an increase of Rs 425 from Wednesday, according to the airlines operators.
Earlier, the fuel surcharge on Kathmandu-Bharatpur route stood at Rs 1,430 and Kathmandu-Dhangadi Rs 4,225, it said, adding that the hike in ATF has forced the domestic airlines to increase the fuel surcharge.
Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) has jacked up the price of ATF-domestic by Rs 11 per litre to Rs 120 in the capital Kathmandu and ATF-international by Rs 3.3 to Rs 108.75.
