JAL announces international fare fuel surcharge
Jun 12, 2013

TOKYO, Japan - Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism(MLIT) to revise down the fuel surcharges applied on all international passenger tickets issued between August 1 and September 30, 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 April and May 2013 averaged US$115.94 per barrel. With reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for fiscal year 2013 (see below), this corresponds to Zone F of fuel surcharges. From August to September 2013, it will range from 2,000 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to 21,000 yen on a Japan - USA ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets purchased in Japan.

This level of surcharge will be applied to all international passenger tickets issued between August 1 and September 30, 2013.

Fuel Surcharge for the period: August 1 and September 31, 2013.

Current Level : Zone G
(Applicable till July 31, 2013)
New Level: Zone F

(Applicable on/after August 1, 2013)

Based on average price of fuel:
