Lufthansa, Europe's biggest airline by passenger numbers, said Wednesday it would raise the price of most flights but partially offset the increase by lowering fuel surcharges.

From June 22, round-trip long distance flights will cost around €30 ($37) more, while intra-European services will cost between €10 to €20 more, a spokesman for the German flag carrier told AFP.

The increase, the first at Lufthansa since October, is to help finance investment in new aircraft like the Airbus A380 superjumbo and to redesign first- and business-class cabins, the spokesman said.

At the same time, Lufthansa will cut its fuel surcharges by €3 for a one-way flight in Europe and €6 for a long-distance flight, he added.
