Lufthansa adds fuel surcharge on long-haul

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 surcharge per flight segment will thus amount to 77 euros on long-haul tickets sold from 14 November 2007. The surcharge on flights within Germany and Europe remains unchanged at 14 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.
