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.
