New year Gift

ATF prices has been slashed by steep 12.5 per cent, the sixth straight reduction in prices since August, as international oil prices slumped to five-year low levels.

The price of aviation turbine fuel  at Delhi was cut by Rs 7,520.52 per kilolitre, or 12.5 per cent, to Rs 52,422.92 per kl, oil companies announced today. The new prices at metros are as follows :

Delhi 52423.00
Kolkata 61525.00
Mumbai 53862.00
Chennai 57457.00

This is the possibly the steepest cut in rates since ATF pricing was deregulated or freed in April 2002.

The cut, effective today, is the sixth reduction in jet fuel rates since August. The price was last cut by 4.1 per cent, or Rs 2,594.93 per kl, on December 1.

Brent crude, a pricing benchmark for more than half of the world’s oil, sank 48 per cent in 2014 as US producers and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries ( OPEC) ceded no ground in their battle for market share amid a supply glut. Brent fell to USD 57.33 a barrel, the lowest since May 2009

All the airlines are happy with the price cut.This will definitely give a relief to all the airlines.

“This ATF price reduction is therefore a welcome step in the right direction. Fuel is 45-50% of airline costs in India”.

ATF rates now are at their lowest level since February 2011. Jet fuel prices had hit an all-time high of Rs 76,241.33 per kl in January but have since then receeded.

In Mumbai, jet fuel will cost Rs 53,861.58 per kl from today as against Rs 61,695.45 per kl previously. The rates vary because of differences in local sales tax or VAT.

No immediate comment was available from airlines on the impact of the price cut on passenger fares.

State-owned fuel retailers, Indian Oil Corp ( IOCBSE 1.64 %), Bharat Petroleum Corp ( BPCLBSE 1.30 %) and Hindustan Petroleum Corp ( HPCLBSE 1.16 %) revise jet fuel prices on 1st of every month based on average imported cost and rupee-US exchange rate.

All the airlines are considering to increase their fleet as revised aviation policies are likely to be very helpful for entire aviation industry.
