The crude oil and kerosene price has risen to an all-time high in recent weeks. Lufthansa and Air France are both reacting to this development by increasing their fuel surcharges on both intercontinental as well as on flights within Europe.

Lufthansa has raised the surcharge on long-haul tickets by five euros. The surcharge per flight segment will thus amount to 67 euros on long-haul tickets sold from 1 October 2007. On German domestic and intra-European flights, Lufthansa's fuel surcharge per flight route will be increased by two euros to 14 euros.

Air France has increased its fuel surcharge by 1 euro per segment on short and medium haul flights and by 5 euros per segment on long-haul flights.
