Japan Airlines has applied to the Japanese
Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to
revise from October 1, 2009, its international cargo fuel
surcharge for flights departing from Japan.
Since April 1, 2009, JAL started adjusting its
fuel surcharge levels on a monthly basis by using the one-month
average fuel price of Singapore kerosene of the month before last.
As the average fuel price of Singapore
kerosene for the month of August 2009 was US$78.81 per barrel, the
benchmark fuel price used for calculation of the fuel surcharge
level in October will be within the range of US$75.00 to US$79.99
The international cargo fuel surcharge will
therefore increase on long-haul international routes from 59 yen
per kg to 66 yen, on medium-haul international routes from 51 yen
per kg to 57 yen, and on short-haul routes from 43 yen per kg to
48 yen accordingly.
