Singapore Airlines steps in line as the industry's line to raise fuel surcharges in line with rising fuel prices rocketing 3% this year. British Airways and Thomas cook have already raised theirs, with the increase rocketing from $4 dollars and upwards, depending on the distance and class flown. The price changes will take place from 21st April 2011. What effect this will have on cheap flights and cheap holidays remains to be seen.

The news come out on the same day that Heathrow Airport announces its exploring the idea to spend money on underground heating, to prevent a repeat occurrence of last year's chilling delays.

BAA's Capital projects director, Steve Morgan told Building magazine, "It's not the snow that caused the problems last year, it was the ice. We are working on a concept to capture geothermal energy from the surface of the Tarmac."
