KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has today announced it is to reduce its fuel surcharge effective from 28th September 2006. The reduction is a result of the reduced price of a barrel of oil and is part of KLM’s policy to review fuel surcharges on a ongoing basis.
UK passengers booking with KLM will receive a GBP1 reduction per stretch on all intra - European flights and a GBP3 reduction per stretch on all intercontinental flights.
Example fuel surcharge reductions: Passengers travelling point to point between the UK and KLM’s Amsterdam hub at Schiphol Airport will benefit from a GBP2 reduction for a return flight.
Passengers travelling within Europe via Amsterdam e.g. London to St Petersberg via Amsterdam will benefit from a GBP4 reduction for a return journey.
Intercontinental passengers will receive an GBP8 reduction on a return flight from the UK via Amsterdam.
