Lufthansa lowers fuel surcharge for its flights


As crude oil and kerosene prices have decreased, Lufthansa will reduce its fuel surcharge on its flights. The fuel surcharge on domestic German and intra-European routes will lower by 3 euros to 24 euros per flight segment. On long-haul routes, the corresponding fuel surcharge will be decreased by 5 euros to 92 euros per flight segment. The reduction will apply to all Lufthansa tickets issued on or after October 20, 2008.

Lufthansa continually monitors oil prices and will make any future adjustments to the fuel surcharge dependent on further trends in the price of jet fuel.
