LUFTHANSA INCREASES TICKET PRICES TO COVER ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS

(Reuters) - Lufthansa will increase ticket prices on all flights departing from EU countries, Britain, Norway and Switzerland by between 1 euro and 72 euros($1.07-$77.24), the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

The airline said the surcharge will "cover part of the steadily rising additional costs due to regulatory environmental requirements" such as sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
