Loganair revises fuel surcharge

Saturday, 09 Sep, 2022 0

Regional airline Loganair has adjusted its fuel surcharge on new ticket sales in response to changes in global fuel prices. 

The airline, which announced the surcharge in March this year as oil prices increased, has set out three zones to allocate the surcharge cost on a more equitable basis based on distance travelled.

It means that the fuel surcharge on the shortest flights – under 200 miles – will fall from the current £3.95 per flight to £1.95 from today.

It is in line with Loganair’s original pledge to cut the surcharge when the price of Brent Crude falls below $110 per barrel.

the airline has now set out new surcharges for two groups of longer routes where travel is more than 200 miles:

  • Zone 1 under 200 miles £1.95 – reduces from £3.95
  • Zone 2 between 200 and 300 miles – remains at £3.95
  • Zone 3 for routes over 300 miles – increases to £5.95

The new zonal structure means customers are not unfairly penalised when it comes to the actual fuel burn.

Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair Chief Executive, said: “We are happy to announce on our key island and local community flying, we’re halving the fuel surcharge for new bookings – as we promised we would do.”

“However, fuel prices remain highly volatile.  Therefore, it’s only right that we address the balance as we go into the winter, and adjust charges to reflect these costs..”

The changes to the fuel surcharge are determined by the date of booking and not the date of travel
