Surcharges

Fuel Surcharge

Alaska Air Cargo's Fuel Surcharge methodology is based on the Platt's Los Angeles Mean fuel index and therefore allows us to better correlate the Fuel Surcharge with our actual fuel costs. We adjust the Fuel Surcharge based on certain sustained variations in this index. We will provide two weeks' notice of any adjustment on our Fuel Surcharge web page where you can always find the most current pricing information.

All shipments in the Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air Cargo network are currently assessed a $0.16 per pound USD Fuel Surcharge. The Fuel Surcharge is calculated based on the shipment's actual weight and is subject to taxation.
