Aer Lingus increases fuel surcharge

22nd May 2007 Print
Aer Lingus has increased its long haul fuel surcharge with effect from Wednesday 09 May 2007 as a result of recent trends in the price of oil.

The fuel surcharge on long haul flights to/from Ireland to New York, Boston, Chicago, Orlando, Washington and Dubai will rise to €40/US$46 per sector and on flights to/from Ireland to Los Angeles and San Francisco to €50/US$67 per sector.

Commenting on the announcement Aer Lingus' Commercial Director, Enda Corneille said:

"The oil price continues to be extremely volatile and in recent weeks the cost of fuel has risen significantly. We said last May that we would keep our surcharge under review to reflect changes in the price of fuel, and today's decision to increase the charge is consistent with that strategy. We remain committed to reviewing levels of our surcharge in line with current market trends."
