With the crude oil price peaking to new heights in recent weeks, Lufthansa is reacting to the
increase in the price for kerosene by raising the fuel surcharge on its long-haul flights by
this move, the airline is retracting the ten-Euro cut by which it reduced its long-haul fuel surcharge in
October 2006. The surcharge for longhaul tickets will consequently rise from
today, 20 July 2007 to 62 Euros for each flight leg on a passengerís route.
The surcharge on flights within Germany and Europe remains unchanged at twelve
Euros per flight leg.
