FT. LAUDERDALE – Caribbean Airlines is pleased to announce the immediate removal of fuel surcharges on all routes between North America and the Caribbean, and within the Caribbean.
Mr. George Reeleder, Vice President of Commercial and Customer Service said, “This is great news for Caribbean Airlines customers. With the reduction in jet fuel prices we have removed the surcharges as they were only ever planned to be of temporary nature.” The fuel surcharge was introduced to cover additional costs when the price of fuel was over $100 per barrel. We never wanted this surcharge to be a permanent feature of our fares. Thus, when our largest expense – fuel, came down, we wanted our customers to benefit.
“As we approach the Christmas travel season, there could not be a better time to remove this surcharge” said Mr. Reeleder.
