JAL to Decrease Cargo Fuel Surcharge

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 12 August 2009

Japan Airlines has applied to the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to revise, from 1 September 2009, its international cargo fuel surcharge for flights departing from Japan.

The international cargo fuel surcharge will decrease on long-haul international routes from 66 Yen per kg to 59 Yen, on medium-haul international routes from 57 Yen per kg to 51 Yen, and on short-haul routes from 48 Yen per kg to 43 Yen.

JAL started adjusting its fuel surcharge levels on a monthly basis on 1 April 2009 by using the one-month average fuel price of Singapore kerosene of the month before last.

As the average fuel price of Singapore kerosene for the month of July in 2009 was US$72.44 per barrel, the benchmark fuel price used for calculation of the fuel surcharge level in September will be within the range of US$70.00 to US$74.99 per barrel, resulting in this latest fuel surcharge decrement.
