Lock Your Flights In Now: Flight Centre Issues Fuel Surcharge Advice

Share Article

Australian travellers planning a holiday or business trip have been urged to finalise flight arrangements as soon as possible to avoid the latest price increases on Virgin flights.

Virgin’s new fuel surcharges, due to come into effect on August 22, will mean an increase on all international airfares.

Flight Centre Limited (FLT) managing director Graham Turner said while international airfares are affordable at the moment, the new fuel surcharges mean a price increase of between $25 – $65 per person one way.

“Why pay extra if you can avoid it? For families in particular, the savings opportunity is significant.

“For a family of four travelling overseas, the fuel surcharges could mean an added $200 to your bill if you book after the increases come into effect,” Mr Turner said.

“If you plan to travel overseas with Virgin in the short to medium term, our advice is to consider paying in full within the next two weeks to ensure the ticket is issued in advance of the changes,” he said.

To avoid the surcharges, all Virgin international travellers have until August 21 to get their flights ticketed.
