Qantas to increase freight fuel surcharges for international services

Qantas plans to increase fuel surcharges for freight services by 14% on international services to Africa, the Americas, and Europe, due to increasing jet fuel prices (Sydney Morning Herald, 08-Sep-09). The increase will come into effect from 16-Sep-09. The carrier has meanwhile reduced fuel surcharges on cargo operations to Asia, and stated it has no plans to reinstate the surcharges on domestic passenger services or increase international passenger surcharges.
