SWISS to increase its fuel surcharges

20 September 2005

SWISS will increase its fuel surcharges effective September 23, in line with other airlines. This measure is in response to the increases in crude oil and fuel prices following Hurricane Katrina and Tropical Storm Rita in the USA.

In view of these developments, SWISS is constrained to increase its fuel surcharges, to CHF 93 per leg (formerly CHF 68) for long-haul flights and to CHF 29 per leg (formerly CHF 24) for European flights.

The new fuel surcharges will be levied on any tickets booked or issued in Switzerland on or after September 23. All tickets issued up to September 22 will be subject to fuel surcharges at the current rates.
