Reply To: How does each Airline set fuel surcharges?

Back to Forum


On KLM when i make bookings, there is a very specific detailing or all charges –
On a LHR-AMS for eg…

“”Ticket price £46.
Fuel surcharge £40 (This was £20 2 weeks ago???!).
Passenger service charge UK £21.57.
NL PSC £12.60.
Security charge (UK) £11.30.
UK APD £10.
Netherlands Noise Isolation charge £1.70.
Total price £143.17”.

So, how would BMI or BA charge, ie £40 on fuel surcharge?
Long haul, or trans-atlantic?

Etihad , Qatar, Emirates,for eg, charge very little Fuel surcharges compared to other Airlines Flying to the Emirates.
