JAL to Reduce International Fare Fuel Surcharge

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 18 November 2008

The JAL Group has requested approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), to decrease the fuel surcharge placed on all international passenger tickets issued for the 3-month period starting January 1, 2009.

JAL decided to decrease the fuel surcharge for tickets issued between January 1 and March 31 2009, as the price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the 3 month period from August - October 2008 averaged US$115.92 per barrel. This is substantially down on the average of US$163.54 per barrel for the 3 month period prior to that.

Based on JAL's fuel surcharge benchmark list for FY2008, the new surcharges per person per sector flown on tickets purchased in Japan, range from 2,500 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket, down from 4,000 yen, to 26,000 yen on a Japan- Brazil ticket, down from 38,000 yen. The surcharge per person per sector on a Japan to Canada, Europe, Mexico, Middle East, Oceania or USA (excluding Hawaii) will go down from 33,000 yen to 22,000 yen.

The surcharge will be progressively reduced as the price of fuel decreases, and will be cancelled completely when, and if, the price of Singapore kerosene stays below the benchmark of US$60 per barrel.

The fuel surcharge charged for tickets issued from April to June 2009 will be reviewed based on the average price of fuel for November 2008 through to January, 2009.
