JAL announces international fare fuel surcharge for August to September 2012

127

Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to apply a lower level of fuel surcharges on all international passenger tickets issued between August 1 and September 30, 2012 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 2012 averaged US$127.75 per barrel. With reference to the benchmark list for fiscal year 2012 (see below), this corresponds to Zone G of fuel surcharges which from August 2012, 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.
