Airlines reduce surcharges

British Airways will tomorrow reduce surcharges on its flying programme.

The cuts will have the biggest effect on long haul services with World Traveller flights lasting more than nine hours being cut by £30 to £66 while those flights of less than nine hours will fall by £15 to £53.

World Traveller Plus flights over nine hours will also be cut by £30 to £85 while those lasting less than nine hours will be reduced by £20 to £63. First and Club World flights longer than nine hours will drop £35 to £98 while shorter flights will be reduced by £20 to £78.

Fuel surcharges on domestic and European services will be reduced by £4 to £12 while Club Europe services will see a £5 reduction to £15 per sector.

SriLankan Airlines will also drop the surcharge on its London Colombo route with a flat rate of €25 for one way tickets and €50 for return tickets as of January 1.

The airline introduced its surcharge in June as fuel prices rocketed to $147 per barrel although prices are now between $45 and $50 currently.
