In a huge win for travellers, Emirates has dropped its fuel surcharge on all flights across the Dubai-based airline’s network.
“In line with the recent decrease in fuel prices Emirates has removed its fuel surcharge on all tickets,” said Emirates Airline President Tim Clark.
“The removal of this surcharge reflects our longstanding commitment to our customers.
“We promised our customers from the outset that we would eliminate the surcharge as soon as it was commercially viable and this has now been done. We continue to closely monitor the situation.”
Emirates has also re-instated its third daily-direct flight to Dubai from Sydney, which was temporarily suspended last year.
