Aer Lingus raises fuel surcharges
London, October 29, 2007
Irish airline Aer Lingus said it would increase its long-haul fuel surcharges from November 1 due to the rising price of oil.
The fuel surcharge on long-haul Ireland routes to and from New York, Boston and Washington will rise to $70 per flight.
The charge will rise to $77 per flight on routes to and from Chicago, Orlando & Dubai, and to $91 per flight on routes to and from Los Angeles and San Francisco, Aer Lingus said.
'We said last May that we would keep our surcharge under review to reflect changes in the price of fuel, and today's decision to increase the charge is consistent with that strategy,' said Aer Lingus commercial director Enda Corneille. Reuters
