Virgin Atlantic is raising its fuel surcharges on tickets sold in the UK to offset rocketing fuel prices.
Fuel accounts for about 25% of Virgin's operating costs
The airline said it would increase its fuel levy to £30 ($55.36) per flight, a rise of £6, after oil prices reached more than $70 a barrel last week.
This latest increase will take place from Wednesday 7 September, it said.
In May, Virgin shrugged off higher fuel costs to reveal a sharp increase in profits to £68m for the year, its highest since 1999.
"The decision has been taken in light of the recent increases in the price of oil which - exacerbated by Hurricane Katrina - reached a new high of over $70 a barrel last week," Virgin said in a statement.
In June this year, the airline raised its fuel levy by £8 per flight when oil was hovering around the $60 per barrel mark.
Analysts expect rival airlines, including BA, to follow Virgin's move.
Qantas already increased its surcharges two weeks ago.
