Lufthansa to Cut Fuel Surcharge

German airline Lufthansa has announced that it will reduce its fuel surcharge on its flights due to a decrease in crude oil and kerosene prices. The reduction will apply to all Lufthansa tickets issued on or after October 20, 2008.

The fuel surcharge on domestic German and intra-European routes will lower by E3 to E24 per flight segment. On long-haul routes the corresponding fuel surcharge will be decreased by E5 to E92 per flight segment.

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