Flying will be more expensive in Taiwan. Taiwan has approved an 8 percent fuel surcharge hike by airlines from June 16th. The decision was made due to high global crude oil prices. The Civil Aeronautics Administration said the fuel surcharge per passenger for long flights would rise to almost US$85 from US$78, while those for short routes would rise to almost US$33 from US$30.

The move came after Taiwan scrapped a freeze on gas prices and raised petrol costs in May by up to 16 percent.

Governments across Asia have been struggling to keep energy costs down, often with subsidies or price caps, following a record-breaking surge in crude oil prices.
