NWA Cargo Announces Increases in Fuel Surcharges.

EAGAN, Minn. -- As a result of continuing increases in the price of jet fuel, NWA Cargo will raise its fuel surcharges in certain markets effective June 1, 2008, subject to government approvals where required.

International fuel surcharges, excluding traffic originating in Japan, will be increased from $1.10 to $1.20 per kilogram.

Additionally, westbound trans-Pacific shipments from the U.S. to Shanghai (PVG), Guangzhou (CAN), and points beyond will now be subject to a $0.40 per kilogram fuel surcharge above current all-in base rates.

Domestic U.S. fuel surcharges will be raised from $0.42 per pound to $0.44 per pound. Separately, the security surcharge will also be increased from $0.045 to $0.06 per pound.

Other surcharge details, including local currency equivalents and shipper built unit charges, may be obtained from local NWA Cargo sales offices or online at http://www.nwa.com/services/shipping/cargo/surcharge.shtml.
