JAL Reduces International Fare Fuel Surcharge
for October to November 2011
Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to decrease the current level of fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets issued between October 1 and November 30, 2011.
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 June and July 2011 averaged US$128.02 per barrel. With reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for the fiscal year of 2011 (see below), this corresponds to Zone G of fuel surcharges which range from 2,500 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to 25,000 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 October 1 and November 30, 2011.
Fuel Surcharge for the period: October 1 - November 30, 2011
Japan- Hawaii, India, Indonesia - Current Surcharge: US$213.00
Japan- Hawaii, India, Indonesia - New Surcharge: US$185.00
