No change in fuel surcharge on short to medium-haul services
With the crude oil price peaking to new heights in recent weeks, Lufthansa is reacting to the concomitant increase in the price for kerosene by raising the fuel surcharge on long-haul flights by ten euros.
The airline is thus 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 20 July 2007 to 62 euros for each flight leg on a passenger’s route.
The surcharge on flights within Germany and Europe remains unchanged at twelve euros per flight leg. Lufthansa continually monitors the oil price and adjusts its fuel surcharge in line with developments in jet fuel prices on the crude oil market.
