Aer Lingus to reduce long-haul fuel surcharges

21st November 2008 Print
Aer Lingus is to reduce its long haul fuel surcharges by up to 20% on all tickets booked for flights between Ireland and the US with immediate effect. The fuel surcharge reduction represents a decrease of up to €20/US$40 per sector and comes as a result of the recent decrease in international oil prices.

Dermot Mannion, Aer Lingus Chief Executive, said, "This is good news for Aer Lingus customers. We have consistently reassured customers that the fuel surcharge would be kept under active review as part of Aer Lingus' continued commitment to its low fares strategy. We are pleased to honour that commitment now that oil prices have fallen."

The fuel surcharge reduction will only apply to new bookings for long haul travel made from Wednesday 29th October. The reduction will not apply to bookings for long haul travel made and paid for prior to this time.
