Lufthansa adjusts fuel surcharges

17th June 2008 Print
In recent weeks, crude oil and kerosene prices have continued to rise and are reaching highest levels. In response to this development, Lufthansa is adjusting its fuel surcharges on its flights.

The fuel surcharge on domestic German and intra-European routes will increase by 3 euros to 24 euros per flight segment. On long-haul routes the corresponding fuel surcharge will be raised by 10 euros to 92 euros per flight segment. The increases will apply to all Lufthansa tickets issued on or after 16 June 2008.

Lufthansa last increased its fuel surcharges on 14 May 2008 – on European flights by 4 euros to 21 euros and on long-haul flights by 5 euros to 82 euros.

Lufthansa continually monitors oil prices and will make any future adjustments to the fuel surcharge dependent on further trends in the price of jet fuel.
