Carriers apply higher surcharge on international routesFlying out of the country next month will cost more, as Korean airlines will raise fuel surcharges for international flights to reflect a rise in oil prices.
According to flag carriers Korean Air Lines and Asiana Airlines, the fuel surcharge for international flights will be raised to level 13 from 14, the first jump in five months. As a result, fuel surcharges of one way ticket to the United States will be $144, up $11.
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 oil cost. However, fuel surcharges for domestic flights will remain same at 11,000 won ($9.80).
