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)
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.
