Japan Airlines has requested approval
from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and
Tourism to revise down the fuel surcharges applied on all
its international passenger tickets issued between 1 August 2013 and
30 September 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 April and
May 2013 averaged US$115.94 per barrel.
With reference to the fuel
surcharge benchmark list for fiscal year 2013, this
corresponds to Zone F of fuel surcharges. From August to September
2013, it will range from 2,000 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket, to
21,000 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
1 August and 30 September 2013.
