Calculation basis for the fuel supplement
The fuel supplement is calculated on the basis of the monthly average spot price for kerosene / aviation fuel (US Gulf Coast). The prices are specified in US dollars per American gallon.
The fuel supplement is tiered in 0.5% steps (as of January 2016 in 0,25% steps) and is set each month in accordance with the following table. The latest supplement is always calculated on the basis of the monthly average price in the last-but-one month.
