Jet hikes fuel surcharge by Rs 100

Mumbai: Passengers of Jet Airways will now have to pay Rs 100 more on every booking. The country's leading airline has hiked the fuel surcharge on all domestic routes from the current Rs 650 to Rs 750.

Passengers who purchase tickets outside India will have to pay $six extra.

The airline has attributed this hike to the recent decision by oil companies to hike Aviation Turbine Fuel or ATF prices by four per cent.

AIR TRAVEL GETS EXPENSIVE: The hike is attributed to the increase in ATF prices.

Other domestic airlines are also expected to follow suit in the coming week. This is the third such hike this year.
