JAL Increases International Fare Fuel Surcharge

jal-tsuru-logo.jpg Japan Airlines will increase the international fare fuel surcharge on all tickets issued between December 1st 2012 and Jan 31st, 2013.

Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to revise up the fuel surcharges applied on all international passenger tickets issued between December 1, 2012 and January 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 August and September 2012 averaged US$130.89 per barrel. With reference to the benchmark list for fiscal year 2012 (see below), this corresponds to Zone H of fuel surcharges which from December 2012, will range from 2,500 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to 26,000 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 December 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013.

Fuel Surcharge for tickets issued until November 30, 2012

Japan - Hawaii: US$ 170.00 (one-way)

Fuel Surcharge for December 1, 2012 – January 31, 2013

Japan - Hawaii: US$ 208.00 (one-way)
