During the oil price calculation cycle from August to the end of September, the comprehensive procurement cost of domestic aviation kerosene announced by the Civil Aviation Administration of China has not decreased, and the adjustment of fuel surcharge is directly linked to the comprehensive procurement cost.

Among them, four airlines occupy the top four positions in the list of losses, and the losses are equal to the sum of the losses of more than 20 listed companies, and 12 airlines are already insolvent.
