George Osborne in his Autumn statement today has said that air passenger duty for children under 12 will be abolished on economy flights from next May.



Why Aren’t Fuel Surcharges Dropping?

Aug 22nd, 2011 | By

As you probably know, fuel prices have been dropping. But has anyone seen any cuts in the surcharges airlines make? Japan Airlines has announced that it will reduce its fuel surcharge. But wait for this. The surcharge will drop from October 1st and last only until the 28th November on flights from here to Japan.



Fuel Surcharge and Emirates

May 14th, 2011 | By

The price of oil, and therefore, aviation fuel has decreased over the last couple of weeks. (It hasn’t stopped one of our local garages from increasing prices by 1p though!) The price, as of this morning, stands at about the level it was at the end of February this year. That was enough for Emirates to announce that they were cutting their fuel surcharge. Congratulations for a smart move.
But what of other airlines?



Now flybe Adds a Fuel Surcharge

May 6th, 2011 | By

Now flybe have joined the number of airlines who have recently introduced increases in fuel surcharges. Following on from BA’s £10 increase a couple of weeks ago, flybe has added £3 per fare for bookings where the flight occurs after September 1st. In the grand scheme of things this is a relatively modest increase and it doesn’t take place until after the main summer season is over.



Here We Go Again at BA

Apr 7th, 2011 | By

From tomorrow British Airways is increasing by £10 the fuel charge that it is levying on all economy class fares on medium and long haul flights. Domestic flights and short haul ones are unaffected this time. It means that if you’re flying to Australia you’ll pay a fuel surcharge of £98 on your ticket and a trip to the east coast of the US will incur £85 surcharge. And I suppose if BA is introducing this, then its stable mate, Iberia will follow as well. And other airlines will follow in one way or another.



Holiday Prices Rise

Mar 2nd, 2011 | By

After yesterday’s fuel surcharge announcement by Thomas Cook comes a similar announcement from TUI, owners of Thomson and First Choice Holidays. I suppose it was only to be expected. The airlines have been increasing their surcharges and it was probably only a matter of time before those tour operators with their own airlines would soon follow.
So how much might this cost you?
