BA ups longhaul fuel surcharge

British Airways will raise its fuel surcharge on longhaul flights as the high price of oil further squeezes European consumers. BA will add £10 to the cost of an economy flight and £20 to a premium ticket. The airline, which formed the International Airlines Group when it merged with Spain’s Iberia last year, raised its surcharge two months ago and had warned of further ticket eeprice rises. BA?chief financial officer Nick Swift said:?“As customers will know from the price at the petrol pumps, the cost of fuel has continued to rise significantly over the past three months.”
