BA World Cargo increases surcharge again

British Airways World Cargo has increased its fuel surcharge for the second time in two months owing to escalating fuel prices.

The surcharge will be 84 pence as of 17th July, up from the amended charge of 75 pence, which came into effect on 13th June.

The carrier said the increase was required as the fuel index fell above the level 26 threshold for two consecutive weeks.

Adam Carson, senior manager revenue management, BA World Cargo, said: “As fuel prices have continued to climb, it is necessary for us to increase our fuel surcharge, in line with the index.”
