As Oil Prices Fall, Lufthansa Lowers Fuel Surcharge

Keeping pace with the decreasing prices for crude oil and kerosene, Lufthansa will reduce the fuel surcharge on its flights. The fuel surcharge on domestic German and intra-European routes will decrease by $3 to $32 per flight segment. On long-haul routes, the corresponding fuel surcharge will be decreased by $5 to $100 per flight segment. The reduction will apply to all Lufthansa tickets issued on or after October 20.

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