KUALA LUMPUR, March 3 (Bernama) -- Malaysia's community airline, Firefly, has no plan to implement fuel surcharge at this moment although the crude oil price has surged to US$116.81 (US$1=RM3.00) per barrel.

Its managing director, Datuk Eddy Leong, said the airline faced the risk of fuel volatility just like other airlines worldwide and subscribe to Malaysia Airlines group's overall hedging policy.

"However we will continue to monitor the situation closely," he said in an e-mail reply to Bernama's query on the impact of fuel price increase.
