Fuel surcharges suspended on domestic flights

China will suspend fuel surcharges on domestic flights from Jan. 15 due to fall in kerosene prices, China's top economic planner and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC)jointly announced Wednesday.

Future fuel surcharges would be decided on kerosene price changes, they said.

The National Development and Reform Commission, the top economic planner, and the CAAC on Dec. 25 lowered the surcharge from 150 yuan (22 U.S. dollars) to 40 yuan for flights that were more than 800 kilometers, and from 80 yuan to 20 yuan for those under 800 kilometers.

China will also cut retail prices of gasoline by 2 percent and diesel by 3.2 percent as of midnight Wednesday.
