Lufthansa increases Fuel Surcharge on Long Haul Flights

Travel News Asia Friday, 20 July 2007

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 ten Euros.

With 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 passengers route.

The surcharge on flights within Germany and Europe remains unchanged at twelve Euros per flight leg.
