KLM rolls out credit card surcharge

25th Jul 2006

KLM will introduce a charge of 7.50 euros ($9.46) for credit card bookings made in the Netherlands of its cheapest economy class fares, it said on Monday. The per-passenger charge applies only for bookings made directly with KLM, including Internet bookings, on European and intercontinental flights, the airline said in a statement and reported by Reuters news agency.

KLM will simultaneously on Aug. 1 introduce a new payment method for Dutch customers, allowing them to pay by a wire transfer without extra charges.

KLM said the charge was necessary because the costs of credit card payments were too high in relation to the cheapest economy class fares.
