Lufthansa raises fuel surcharges as oil price soars

FRANKFURT, May 8 (Reuters) - Germany’s Deutsche Lufthansa (LHAG.DE) plans to raise the surcharges it imposes on customers to offset the price of fuel as a result of soaring oil prices, it said on Thursday.

“In recent weeks, crude oil and kerosene prices have continued to rise and have now reached an all-time high. In response to this development, Lufthansa is adjusting its fuel surcharge on all its flights,” it said in a statement.

The fuel surcharge on long-haul routes will be raised by 5 euros to 82 euros each way. On domestic German and intra-European routes it will increase by 4 euros to 21 euros per leg.

The increases will apply from May 14, Lufthansa added.
