Japan Airlines has applied to the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to revise from 1 May 2010 its international cargo fuel surcharge for flights departing from Japan only.

Since 1 April 2009, JAL has been adjusting its cargo 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 in March 2010 was US$87.54 per barrel, the benchmark fuel price used for calculation of the fuel surcharge level in May will be within the range of US$85.00 to US$89.99 per barrel.

The 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.
