JAL has filed an application with the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLITT) to revise from January 1, 2009 the international cargo fuel surcharge for flights departing from Japan only.

The international cargo fuel surcharge on long-haul international routes for flights departing Japan will decrease from 157 Yen to 115 Yen per kg. In the case of medium-haul international routes, the surcharge will decrease from 135 to 99 Yen per kg, and on short-haul routes from 113 Yen to 83 Yen per kg.

JAL is decreasing its fuel surcharge on international cargo flights departing Japan, as during the 3-month period August - October 2008 the price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel averaged US$115.92 per barrel.
