SWISS to make modest fuel surcharge adjustment

15January 2010

The latest increase in the prices of crude oil and jet fuel has compelled SWISS to make a modest adjustment to its present fuel surcharges. European flights (including services to Cairo and Tel Aviv) will now be subject to a fuel surcharge of CHF 37 per sector (up CHF 3), while intercontinental services will be subject to a fuel surcharge of CHF 146 per sector (an increase of CHF 12).

The new fuel surcharges will apply to all tickets for air travel originating in Switzerland which are issued from 21 January onwards. Tickets issued up to and including 20 January will be subject to the present surcharge provisions.

SWISS constantly monitors oil prices, and will continue to adjust its fuel surcharges in response to further fuel price trends on the commodities markets.
