TOKYO, Japan - Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to maintain the fuel surcharges applied on all international passenger tickets issued between April 1 and May 31, 2013 as detailed below.

JAL sets fuel surcharge levels bimonthly based on the 2-month average price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel. The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the two month period of December 2012 and January 2013 averaged US$126.51 per barrel. With reference to the benchmark list for fiscal year 2013 (see below), this remains corresponding to Zone G of fuel surcharges. From April to May 2013, it will range from 2,200 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to 23,500 yen on a Japan - USA ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets purchased in Japan.

Fuel surcharge per sector in Japanese yen for Zones G, H and I were revised down in fiscal year 2012 from 2011 levels, to reflect the effects of the higher exchange rate of the Japanese yen then. For fiscal year 2013, the fuel surcharge benchmark list will remain unchanged in Japanese yen from fiscal year 2012 amid the weakening yen with an unclear direction in the short term.

This level of surcharge will be applied to all international passenger tickets issued between April 1 and May 31, 2013.

Fuel Surcharge for the period: April 1 and May 31, 2013.

Current Level : Zone G
(Applicable till Mar. 31, 2013)

(Applicable on/after Apr. 1, 2013)
