Virgin to add fuel charges
By admin

Virgin Australia will increase fuel surcharges in response to Australian and European Union carbon pricing schemes.

The charges on domestic services will apply to flights booked from March 1 for travel after July 1 and will vary from $1.50 per sector to $6 depending on the length of the flight.
All codeshare flights into and out of Europe operated by partner airline Etihad Airways will also be subject to a charge of $3 from March 1 to cover the cost of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme which was introduced on January 1.
