JAL Cargo to Increase Fuel Surcharge

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 8 February 2011

Japan Airlines has applied to the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to increase its international cargo fuel surcharge from 1 March 2011 for flights departing from Japan.

Since 1 April 2009, JAL has adjusted its cargo fuel surcharge levels on a monthly basis 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 January in 2011 was US$109.83 per barrel, the benchmark fuel price used for calculation of the fuel surcharge level will be within the range of US$105.00 to US$109.99 per barrel.

The international cargo fuel surcharge will therefore increase on long-haul international routes from 101 yen per kg to 108 yen, on medium-haul international routes from 87 yen per kg to 93 yen, and on short-haul routes from 73 yen per kg to 78 yen accordingly.
