The JAL Group (JAL) has made further adjustments
to its international flight frequency and fleet plan for the
second half of fiscal year 2009, the year ending March 31, 2010.
Flight frequency on two international routes -
Tokyo (Narita) to Sao Paulo via New York, and Tokyo (Narita) to
Shanghai, will be reduced between January and March, 2010,
when passenger demand on these routes is expected to be weak.
Capacity will also be lowered by means of downsizing the aircraft
used on 3 other international routes between Tokyo and Beijing as
well as Hong Kong for a similar length of time.
Customers who have already made reservations on
these flights should contact JAL.
JAL Cargo Fuel Surcharge
for January 2010
JAL has also applied to the
Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to revise from January 1, 2010, its international cargo
fuel surcharge for flights departing from Japan only.
As the average fuel price of Singapore kerosene
for the month of November in 2009 was US$85.08 per barrel, the
benchmark fuel price used for calculation of the fuel surcharge
level in October will be within the range of US$85.00 to US$89.99
JAL's international cargo fuel surcharge will
therefore increase on long-haul international routes from 73 yen
per kg to 80 yen, on medium-haul international routes from 63 yen
per kg to 69 yen, and on short-haul routes from 53 yen per kg to
58 yen accordingly.
