Aer Lingus increases fuel surcharge

1st November 2007 Print
Aer Lingus is to increase its long haul fuel surcharge with effect from Thursday 1 November 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 & Washington will rise to £35 per sector, on flights to/from Chicago, Orlando & Dubai will rise to £40 per sector while flights to/from Ireland to Los Angeles and San Francisco to £45 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 there has been a significant upward trend in the cost of fuel. 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."
