BA increase fuel surcharge
April 6th, 2011 by elisa

British Airways will increase in its fuel surcharge on longhaul travel by £10 per sector from on Friday 8th April. The airline said there will be no increase in the fuel surcharge on domestic and shorthaul flights.

World Traveller (economy) flights under nine hours will increase to £85 a sector and flights over nine hours will increase to £98.

World Traveller Plus (premium economy) flights under nine hours will increase to £95 a sector and flights over nine hours will increase to £116.50.

Longhaul premium tickets will increase by £20 per sector.

First and Club World flights under nine hours will increase to £125 and flights of more than nine hours will be increased to £145.

Chief financial officer Nick Swift said: “It’s with real regret that we are having to increase our longhaul fuel surcharge.

“As customers will know from the price at the petrol pumps, the cost of fuel has continued to rise significantly over the past three months.

“For us, fuel now represents over one third of our costs and particularly affects our longhaul flights.

“We are very aware of the wider economic pressures on our customers at the moment and we will bear the vast majority of the recent fuel price rise ourselves to keep this increase in surcharge to a minimum.”

What do you think to these increases? Are they reasonable considering the economic climate?
