Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 25 June 2009

 In response to the 50% increase in the price of crude oil since December 2008, Lufthansa has decided to increase its fuel surcharge on domestic German and European flights by three euros to 24 euros per flight leg.

In future, all fares to destinations in Israel, Lebanon, Jordan and North Africa will be calculated inclusive of the fuel surcharge for European flights. This will significantly reduce fares for flights to some of the above-mentioned countries, as previously the long-haul surcharge applied for these flights.

On long-haul routes, the current uniform fuel surcharge of 82 euros will be staggered according to zone. Three separate zones will apply for flights to:

- long-haul destinations in the Middle East, East Africa (in future 77 euros)

- long-haul destinations in North America and India (unchanged, 82 euros)

- long-haul destinations in South America, Central, West and Southern Africa, Southeast Asia and the Far East (in future 92 euros).

The new adjusted surcharges will apply to all tickets issued on or after 2 July 2009.
