AirAsia has reintroduced fuel surcharges on all AirAsia Malaysia domestic and international flights (with flight code ‘AK’) for all Waran Perjalanan Udara Awam (WPUA) bookings.
As of 11 April 2022, the fuel surcharges will be applicable for new flight bookings. All bookings made prior to 08 April 2022 will not be affected. Flight changes made on 11 April 2022 onwards will be subjected to fuel surcharge in accordance with the guidelines set by the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB).
AirAsia has not been charging fuel surcharges since it was abolished in 2015. The airline has instead been absorbing the oil price increase over the years, while other carriers had adjusted fares and increased fuel & admin charges to counter rising operating costs as early as 2018.
