Lufthansa is responding to the continued record level of prices for crude oil and kerosene: for long-haul flight tickets sold as of 25th April 2005, the airline is adjusting its fuel surcharges. Instead of the previous 17 euros/17 US-Dollar (USD), the fuel surcharge will then amount to 27 euros/27 USD per long-haul flight leg.



The fuel surcharges for domestic and intra-European tickets, for which fuel costs as a share of the total cost of the flight is less, will remain unchanged at seven euros/seven USD. Lufthansa continuously monitors the prices of crude oil and kerosene and will apply the new surcharge until such time as the prices for fuel on the commodities markets return to a stable level below the current record figures.



At the end of August 2004, Lufthansa introduced fuel surcharges of two euros/two USD per flight leg for domestic and intra-European flights, as well as seven euros/seven USD for long-haul flights. The increasing crude oil and kerosene prices made an adjustment necessary in October 2004 to seven euros/seven USD per flight leg for domestic and intra-European flights and to 17 euros/17 USD for long-haul services.
