International flight tickets will get a little bit cheaper

Those who plan to fly overseas next month will pay a little less after Korean airlines lower their fuel surcharges in response to a decline in jet fuel prices.

The fuel surcharge rate structure consists of 33 levels and is based on the trend of the average price of Mean of Platts Singapore (MOPS), a measure of fuel cost. The MOPS for next month is 306.64 cents per gallon, down 6.32 cents from March.

It is the first time this year that fuel surcharge rate declined. As the level 17 fuel surcharge rate will go down to 16 in April, industry officials said surcharges for a one-way ticket to the United States will be $165 next month, $11 less than the current $176.

The surcharge for Europe and Africa will be $10 cheaper at $158 in April. Fuel surcharge for Middle East flights will be $8 less.

However, surcharges on domestic flights will remain at the current price of 13,200 won ($12).
