AMERICAN AIRLINES CARGO TO APPLY FUEL SURCHARGE
American Airlines Cargo said Wednesday it will begin applying a fuel surcharge on April 17 to offset increased fuel prices.
The surcharges will be 5 cents per kilogram for all cargo shipments from the United States to international destinations and 2 cents per pound within the United States.
American said most shipments originating from other countries will have surcharges based on local currency.
“Oil prices have steadily increased in recent weeks, exceeding the levels in 2000 when we previously applied our surcharge,” said Richard Denhart, spokesman for American Airlines Cargo.
