Travelsupermarket: Airlines should absorb charges

1st Aug 2007

Commenting on the penalty of £121.5 million for British Airways’ collusion over the
price of long haul passenger fuel surcharges, Bob Atkinson, flights manager at, said: “We have lived with high prices for oil for several years now, so there is no excuse
for airlines struggling to incorporate fluctuations into their fares.

“ calls on all airlines to absorb fuel charges within their
pricing to increase transparency, as some of the low cost airlines already do. This
makes pricing simpler and clearer for the customer.


“ is opposed to any airlines colluding over prices. We support
the work of the Office of Fair Trading to police the industry.”
