easyJet, Ryanair and 10 other airlines to end surprice surcharges

The Press Association reported that Aer Lingus, BMI Baby, Eastern Airways, easyJet, Flybe, German Wings, Jet2, Lufthansa, Ryanair, Thomas Cook, Thomson (TUI) and Wizz Air will no longer charge debit card-paying customers with surcharges.

The carriers have agreed to include debit surcharges in the headline ticket price rather than surprise consumers at the end of the booking process, the Office of Fair Trading said.
