BA under fire over raising fuel surcharge

16 June 2007

British Airways increased its fuel surcharge again on Wednesday, the ninth rise since the levy was introduced in May 2004.

Three years ago, the first surcharge was £2.50, but this week the airline’s levy on long-haul flights of less than nine hours increased from £33 to £38, or £76 return. The surcharge on flights lasting more than nine hours has risen from £38 to £43, or £86 return. BA’s short-haul fuel surcharge remains at £8 one way.

Robert Boyle, BA’s commercial director, said the change was necessary because fuel costs had risen in recent weeks.
