Aer Lingus increases fuel surcharge on long haul routes

9th May 2008 Print
Aer Lingus is to increase its long haul fuel surcharge on routes to the US, effective from Wednesday, 14 May 2008. The increase is as a direct result of the record upsurge in the price of oil in recent weeks and the airline's rising fuel bill. No fuel surcharge is applied on any of the 82 short haul routes operated by Aer Lingus.

Commenting on the announcement Aer Lingus Corporate Affairs Director, Enda Corneille said: "The price of oil has risen to a record high in recent weeks. Today's increases in our surcharges reflect the continuing effect the high price of oil is having on our long haul operation. Aer Lingus will keep the level of the surcharges under constant review and make adjustments where appropriate".
