Government taxes

All government authorities impose taxes on air transportation. These taxes are charged at the discretion of each country’s government authority, and may be adjusted from time to time to account for inflation and/or currency fluctuation. Some types of government taxes may not be included in your all-in fare, and must be paid separately from your booking – for instance, the additional tariff charged by the Canadian Transport Agency (CTA).


Reservations and ticketing fees

A service fee will be charged when you make reservations and ticketing requests with a Singapore Airlines office or our reservation hotlines.
