Japan Airlines has requested approval from the
Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism
(MLIT) to apply a lower level of fuel surcharges on all its
international passenger tickets issued between 1 August and 30
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 April and May 2012 averaged US$127.75 per barrel. With
reference to the benchmark list for fiscal year 2012,
this corresponds to Zone G of fuel surcharges which from August
2012, will range from 2,200 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to
23,500 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 1 August and 30 September 2012.
