Lufthansa opposes increased air traffic service charges.


Germany's Lufthansa has opposed plans to increase charges for using air traffic control services.

The carrier has said that it does not support plans by Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS), the company that operates Germany's air traffic, to increase the charges for its services in 2007.

DFS reportedly wants to raise its charges by 13% in 2007. The money would go towards pension provisions of EUR780m, Reuters reported.

According to a DFS spokeswoman, the state-owned company will launch a new model for charges when it is privatised.
