Emirates, the Arab world’s largest airline, announced the withdrawal of its fuel surcharge on all flights. The Dubai-based carrier had only introduced a fuel surcharge on flights on 18 April 2011 after a steep rise in international oil prices.
Tim Clark, president Emirates Airline, commented: "In line with the recent decrease in fuel prices Emirates has removed its fuel surcharge on all tickets. The removal of this surcharge reflects our long-standing commitment to our customers."
Emirates ist the largest airline in the Middle East, operating over 2,400 passenger flights per week from its hub at Dubai International Airport Terminal 3, to 105 cities in 62 countries across six continents.
