Hi Travel Buddies,
Important travel news: SIA and SilkAir will raise fuel surcharge on airtickets after next Wednesday. This price increase is on the back of the rising jet fuel, which costs US$110 per barrel as compared to US$95 per barrel 2 months ago. Travellers are expected to pay between US$6 and US$54 more for round-trip fares after Wednesday.
However, Singapore travellers need not worry too much as the continued strengthening of the local currency against US$ and Euro dollar has made up or more than offset the rise in fuel surcharge through savings in accomodation, meals, local tours and shopping. Thanks to the favourable exchange rate! 🙂
