Japan Airlines has requested approval from the
Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism
(MLIT) to increase the fuel surcharges applied on all its
international passenger tickets issued between 1 December 2012 and
31 January 2013.
JAL sets fuel surcharge levels bimonthly based
on the 2-month average price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel.
The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the two month
period of August and September 2012 averaged US$130.89 per barrel.
With reference to the benchmark list for fiscal year 2012, this corresponds to Zone H of fuel surcharges which from
December 2012, will range from 2,500 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket
to 26,000 yen on a Japan - USA ticket per person per sector flown,
on tickets purchased in Japan.
