Many Major Airlines Add Surcharges to Tickets

Last Updated:

Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways have added a $3 surcharge each way to flights between the United States and Europe. The surcharge was added the day after a European Union law went into effect, charging airlines for their greenhouse gas emissions.

Travelers should be reminded that all pre-paid and non-refundable trip cost can be insured by their travel insurance policy. In the event they are not able to travel as a result of a covered reason, such as a illness or death of a family member, they will be able to cancel their trip and receive a refund. Please read the policy’s certificate for more details.
