BA ups fuel charge

British Airways will increase its fuel surcharge on all tickets issued from Tuesday June 3, 2008. The decision reflects continuing high oil prices.

The changes will mean:
The surcharge for short haul flights will increase by £3 per flight (£6 return) from £13 per flight (£26 return) to £16 per flight (£32 return).
The surcharge for long haul flights of less than nine hours will increase by £15 per flight from £63 per flight (£126 return) to £78 per flight (£156 return)
The surcharge for long haul flights of more than nine hours will increase by £30 per flight from £79 per flight (£158 return) to £109 per flight (£218)

British Airways will also increase its fuel surcharges by similar levels in markets outside the UK.
