Jet Fuel Prices Doubles, Increasing Air Ticket Charges

Air ticket and freight charges are set to increase after the doubling of jet fuel prices in what threatens to slow recovery from the coronavirus crisis in the aviation industry.

 According to data from the International Air Transport Association and Platts, Jet fuel prices have doubled to 83,100 shillings per metric tonne in the past year.

Airline operators in Kenya said they will seek to pass the extra cost to consumers to remain afloat, a move that looks set to further depress the number of passengers seeking to use air travel.

The chief executive officer of Safarilink Airline, Mr Alex Avedi  said they have no choice but to increase the charges.
