Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fares airline, has criticised British Airways for increasing its fuel surcharge to £43 â€“ its 9th increase since May 2004. Ryanair continues to guarantee no fuel surcharges ever.
Speaking today Ryanair’s Head of Communications, Peter Sherrard said:
“‘This is British Airways’ 9th fuel surcharge since May 2004. In that time the price of oil has doubled but British Airways’ fuel surcharge has increased 17 fold’.
“‘Ryanair guarantees the lowest fares and will never apply a fuel surcharge, not now, not ever'”.
