PARIS (AFP) - French flag carrier Air France said Tuesday it would raise ticket prices by one euro (1.40 dollars) on each leg of round-trip short and medium-distance flights and by five euros on each leg of round-trip long-haul flights because of rising fuel costs.

It said in a statement the increase in fuel surcharges had been taken "because of the high level of oil prices".
 
The increase would be lifted when the price of oil stabilises durably below 75 dollars, it said.

Air France on August 29 reduced its fuel surcharge by one euro for short and medium haul flights and five euros for long haul flights as the price of a barrel of oil had remained below 75 dollars for 30 consecutive days.

In New York on Monday New York's main futures contract, light sweet crude for delivery in November, fell 67 cents to close at 80.95 dollars per barrel.
