Japan Airlines is to increase the current level
of fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets issued
between June 1 and July 31 2011.
In April this year, JAL began setting fuel
surcharge levels bimonthly based on the 2-month average price,
instead of quarterly based on 3-month average price, of Singapore
kerosene-type jet fuel.
The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel
during the two month period of February and March 2011 averaged
US$126.60 per barrel.
This corresponds to
Zone G of fuel surcharges which range from 2,500 yen on a Japan -
Korea ticket to 25,000 yen on a Japan - USA ticket per person per
sector flown, on tickets purchased in Japan.
This level of surcharge will be applied to all
international passenger tickets issued between June 1 and July 31,
Additionally, based on recent levels of fuel
prices, JAL included zones H and I in the benchmark list.
