Flight Schedule as of May 1, 2023
AIRWAY BILL PREP FEE:
Fuel prices continue to fluctuate. PAC adjusts (or maintains) its fuel surcharge on or about every two weeks. Effective on June 1, 2023 the fuel surcharge for domestic and international will be as follows:
- LAX-HNL-LAX – 66% **(Previously 68%, May 15, 2023) ($45 minimum)
- INTERNATIONAL – PPG – $1.17/kg (Previously $1.17/kg, May 15, 2023) ($45 minimum)
PAC’s Fuel surcharge is based on a percentage of your tariff, not a per lb. charge. PAC believes this is a fair equation when compared to a per pound FSC. PAC’s fuel surcharge is based on PLATTS West Coast fuel prices which are published weekly. Changes to the surcharges will be posted approximately 15 days prior to the effective date.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
All shipments are subject to Security handling and a commensurate Security surcharge. It is important to meet government regulated Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requirements as to who has authorized access to aircraft and cargo at an active airport operation. It is also important to ensure that your very important shipment is secure at all times from the elements of theft, damage or other unknown, unauthorized persons.
Currently the Security Fee for all shipments between Hawaii and the Mainland is $.04/lb. or a $40 minimum. Shipments destined to a Hawaii Neighbor Island destination are subject to an additional Security surcharge. For applicable charges, please contact our PAC office in Los Angeles on (310) 645-2178 or in Honolulu on (808) 834-7977
