KLM-Air France and Transavia lower fuel surcharge
The airlines lower their fuel surcharges as oil prices continue to drop.7 November 2008
THE NETHERLANDS - KLM-Air France and its subsidiary Transavia have lowered their fuel surcharges for tickets issued in the Netherlands and France on Friday as a result of lower oil prices.
KLM-Air France has lowered its surcharge by EUR 2 on European flights and by EUR 10 on intercontinental trips.
However, the reduction is less than the increase introduced when oil prices were at a record level in the summer. In July, the airline increased its fuel surcharge for European flights by EUR 4 and for intercontinental flights by EUR 10 and 14.
This is not the first time KLM lowered it fuel surcharge this year. In September, KLM lowered the tax because of a 27 percent drop in oil prices.
Transavia has lowered its fuel surcharge by EUR 3.50.
The change will not affect pre-booked flights.
