SWISS to increase its fuel surcharges

23 August 2005

The prices of crude oil and jet fuel have risen steeply again to new record levels in the past few weeks. In view of these developments, SWISS is constrained to increase its fuel surcharges, to CHF 68 per leg (formerly CHF 53) for long-haul flights and to CHF 24 per leg (formerly CHF 20) for European flights.

The new fuel surcharges will be levied on any tickets booked or issued in Switzerland on or after August 26. All tickets issued up to August 25 will be subject to fuel surcharges at the current rates.
