The JAL Group has requested approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to reinstate fuel surcharges on all its international passenger tickets issued from October 1, 2009.

The fuel surcharge for international tickets issued between July 1, 2009 and September 30, 2009 was removed when the average price of Singapore kerosene from February to April, 2009 fell below the US$60.00 per barrel benchmark at US$55.08 per barrel.

 Based on the average US$71.41 per barrel of Singapore kerosene in the 3-month period of May to July, 2009, JAL has decided to resume charging a fuel surcharge on international tickets issued within the 3-month period starting October 1 to December 31, 2009.

The average price of US$71.41 per barrel of Singapore kerosene corresponds to level B fuel surcharges which range from 300 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to 10,000 yen on a Japan - Brazil ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets purchased in Japan.

JAL will review the fuel surcharge to be placed on tickets issued from January to March 2010 depending on the average price of fuel for August through to October, 2009.
