Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Tuesday, 11 March 2008

In recent weeks, crude oil and kerosene prices have again reached a new peak. In response to this development, Lufthansa is adjusting its fuel surcharge on its flights on domestic and intra-European routes.

The surcharge will be raised by three euros and will thus amount to 17 euros per flight segment, effective 13 March 2008.

The surcharge on long-haul flights will not be affected by this latest increase and will remain at 77 euros per flight segment.

Airlines constantly monitors oil prices and make adjustments to the fuel surcharge dependent on further trends in the price of jet fuel on the spot markets.
