Jet Airways on Tuesday said it will hike its air fares on all domestic routes in India from July 7 on account of rising aviation turbine fuel (ATF) costs.
"Effective July 7, 2006, the airline will revise the fuel surcharge applicable on all types of fares in both Club Premiere and Economy Class tickets on all domestic routes in India. This surcharge has been necessitated in view of the continuing escalation in fuel prices (ATF)," the airline said in a statement.
The revised fuel surcharge of Rs 500 will be applicable on all tickets purchased within and outside India, issued against both rupees and dollar tariff, it said
For tickets issued outside India, the same will be converted into local currency by using the applicable exchange rate, it added.
The surcharge which is non-commissionable will be applicable on all domestic sectors irrespective of the point of sale or point of ticketing. It is also applicable on all domestic segments, even if the domestic segment is part of an international journey, the airline said.
It, however, said the surcharge will not be applicable on sale of tickets made on or before July 6, 2006.
