Lufthansa ups long-haul fuel charge

With the crude oil price peaking to new heights in recent weeks,
Lufthansa is reacting to the concomitant increase in the price for
kerosene by raising the fuel surcharge on long-haul flights by ten
euros.The airline is thus retracting the ten-euro cut by which it
reduced its long-haul fuel surcharge in October 2006. The surcharge for
long-haul tickets will consequently rise from 20 July 2007 to 62 euros
for each flight leg on a passenger’s route. The surcharge on flights
within Germany and Europe remains unchanged at twelve euros per flight
leg.

Lufthansa continually monitors the oil price and adjusts its fuel
surcharge in line with developments in jet fuel prices on the crude oil
market.
