Domestic jet fuel prices rose 359 yuan ($57.65) a ton to 7,885 yuan in March, China Business News reported on Monday.
Because the increase is above 250 yuan a ton, fuel surcharges for domestic routes may also increase, the report said, citing unnamed sources at several Chinese airlines.
The increase will also lead to the increase of the operating costs of China’s airlines, the report added.
Domestic jet fuel was at 7,526 yuan a ton in February, up 137 yuan a ton compared with January.
