British Airways long haul ticket prices are rising by £10 from Thursday December 16.


The rise – representing an extra £20 per return – comes due to the carrier increasing its fuel surcharge on all long haul routes.


“The move reflects the substantial recent increase in the price of oil,” BA said.


The carrier will not be increasing the fuel surcharge increase on short haul services.


World Traveller flights over nine hours will see an increase of £10 per sector to £76. On flights of less than nine hours, the rise of £10 per sector will see the surcharge go up to £63.


World Traveller Plus flights over nine hours will see the surcharge rise to £94.50 and to £73 on flights of less than nine hours.


First and Club World flights over nine hours will see an increase to £108 per sector and to £88 on flights of less than nine hours.
