10:14 am on 25 August 2004

Fiji's national airline, Air Pacific, in line with other carriers around the world, will introduce a fuel surcharge on fares from next Monday August the 30.

Air Pacific says world oil prices have gone up 60% since it operations budget was drawn up at the beginning of the year.

The surcharge of 28-Fiji dollars or 16-American dollars will apply on all routes.

The airline says the fuel surcharge could go up or down with fuel prices, or be scrapped altogether if the price normalises.
