SINGAPORE: Surcharges for taxi trips from Changi Airport will be raised by S$3 from May 19 to Jun 30, the airport said on Thursday (May 12).

The surcharge for taxi trips from 5pm to 11.59pm every day will be raised to S$8, while the surcharge for all other times will be increased to S$6.

This is to "ensure a better supply of taxis to Changi Airport for our passengers", said Changi Airport in a Facebook post on Thursday. 

Currently, there is a S$5 surcharge for taxi trips from Changi Airport between 5pm and midnight on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The surcharge for taxi trips at all other times is currently S$3.

ComfortDelGro announced in March that it would temporarily increase fares for all its taxis from Apr 4 to cushion the impact of the recent increase in fuel prices. 

The company said the increase was introduced following "strong feedback" from its drivers and that the move will be reviewed by the end of May and removed if fuel prices ease.
