Winair passes on fuel reduction

POSTED: 01/25/15 9:02 PM

St. Maarten – Winair has taken the initiative and decided to pass its savings from the reductions in international fuel prices to its customers.

“Winair will be decreasing its fuel surcharges by 30% for travel after February 1, 2015. This is due to ongoing developments on the international level, where crude oil has been experiencing price adjustments. With the decrease in the prices of fuel Winair has taken this decision. Customers will enjoy a decrease in fuel surcharges on tickets booked for travel effective February 1, 2015,” a Winair press release states.

A new report issued yesterday predicts that the sharp decline in fuel prices internationally bodes well for the ailing aviation industry and could also mark a turnaround for the loss-making aviation sector. On average fuel accounts for around half of the operating costs of an airline. It is also anticipated that there will be a further fall in the prices by the month end, as the oil marketing firms have yet to pass on the full extent of the decline in global fuel prices.
