WestJet imposes fuel surcharges
May 12, 2008

WestJet, Canada's second largest airline, said the escalating price of jet fuel is forcing it to impose a fuel surcharge of on all flights starting Tuesday.

There will be a fuel surcharge of $20, $30 and $45 on all short, medium and long-haul flights, the airline said in a statement on Monday.

All Canadians have felt the impact of rising fuel prices and the airline industry is no exception," said Bob Cummings, executive vice-president of WestJet.

"We held off as long as economically possible but with the unrelenting and unprecedented increases in the cost of fuel over the last year, we are implementing this measure to offset the effect."

Air Canada introduced a fuel surcharge last week.
