Taxes refunded on an Economy Light ticket?

Hi,

I was wondering if my understanding is correct in that if I cancelled a non-refundable Economy Light ticket I would still get some of the taxes back?

The terms say:

Cancellation is not permitted. Unused fees and charges can be refunded. The international / domestic surcharge will not be refunded.

The breakdown is as follows:

Price Calculation
item Per adult

Ticket price 30.00 GBP

Taxes, fees & surcharges 84.04 GBP

International/Domestic Surcharge 12.40 GBP

Air Passenger Duty (APD) 13.00 GBP

Passenger Service Charge 20.44 GBP

Air Transport Tax 6.60 GBP

The German Aviation Security Charge is refundable if you are a transfer passenger arriving from the USA, Canada, Singapore or Montenegro in Frankfurt without undergoing an additional security check by the Federal Police. For refund of this fee please contact the Lufthansa Service center 8.00 GBP

Passenger Service Charge - Intl 23.60 GBP

Total price 114.04 GBP


If I cancelled is it correct I would lose the 30.00 ticket price + 12.40 International/Domestic Surcharge but would get back the remaining 71.64?

I couldn't see any mentioned on the website but are there any additional service/admin fees Lufthansa charge for the cancellation?

Thanks for any help.

Yes, that is correct. There are no additional fees as far as I know.

If you booked the ticket on Lufthansa.com, a simple way to know the amount of the refund would be to access your booking and click on the button "Cancel/Refund" just under the flight schedule. This won't cancel the ticket, but will immediately show you how much will be refunded should you decide to go ahead and confirm.

The screen will look this (this is an Economy Light ticket BRU-ARN):
