An Air India spokesperson said the hike in fuel surcharge would be effective from June 3.
For air travel upto 750-km, the hike in fuel charges would be Rs 300, and for the travel above 750-km, it would be Rs 550, the spokesperson of the state-owned carrier said.
However, other airlines, including Jet Airways and
Kingfisher Airlines, both private players, said they had not yet taken a decision on the issue.
Jet Airways said it would take a decision in the next couple of days, while Kingfisher said it was evaluating the situation.
The state-run oil companies, hit by the surging global crude oil prices which were at USD 127 for a barrel, decided to hike the ATF prices today.
