SEATTLE -- June 2, 1997
In keeping with its commitment to service excellence at a low cost, Airborne announced today the July 1 cancellation of a two percent fuel surcharge put into effect February 17, 1997.

"With the recent drop in the cost of fuel, we can now eliminate the surcharge to our customers," said Jerry Cameron, vice president, corporate accounts and pricing.

"An increase of 30 percent of the cost of fuel made it necessary for the temporary surcharge to be applied to all shipments rated with Domestic, Canadian, and International Express tariffs, including Flight-Ready," concluded Cameron.
