SWISS responds to record fuel prices

24 March 2005

SWISS is responding to the substantial increase in the prices of crude oil and jet fuel to new record levels over the past few weeks by raising its current fuel surcharge from CHF 30 to CHF 48 (one way) for long-haul services and from CHF 15 to CHF 18 (one way) for European flights.

The new surcharges will be levied on all tickets booked or issued from April 1, 2005 onwards, and apply to one-way travel. All tickets booked by March 31, 2005 with the fuel surcharges currently levied must be issued by the end of March.
