Chinese carriers are suspending fuel surcharges on domestic routes starting January 5th, 2019 after fuel buying costs fell below a government-set level.
 
Several Chinese carriers, including Xiamen Airlines, Hainan Airlines, Shenzhen Airlines, and Lucky Air announced on their websites that they would temporarily scrap the fuel surcharges for domestic flights.
 
The surcharge will apply regardless of route length, the airlines said. Previously, they applied different surcharges for different route lengths.
 
Chinese airlines scrapped fuel surcharges for domestic flights in 2015 after oil prices sank to six-year lows. The airlines reintroduced the fuel surcharges in June 2018 due to rising oil prices.
 
The fuel surcharge exemption will apply to tickets with original dates of issue starting from January 5th, 2019. There will be no refunds for reissued tickets.
