JAL International Fare Fuel Surcharge from April to June 2010

Tokyo, February 22, 2010: The JAL Group has requested for approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to increase the current level of fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets issued from April 1, 2010.

The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the 3 month period from November 2009 to January 2010 averaged US$84.66 per barrel. With reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for the fiscal year of 2010 (see below), this corresponds to Zone C where fuel surcharges range from 500 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to 13,500 yen on a Japan- Brazil 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 April 1, and June 30, 2010.

The company continues to conduct such countermeasures as introducing more fuel-efficient, small and medium-sized aircraft to its fleet, to minimize the full impact of high fuel prices. 

Despite these measures, the company is reluctantly obliged to ask its international passengers to bear part of the burden caused by the increase in the price of fuel.

Fuel Surcharge for the period: April 01 - June 30, 2010*



Current Level : Zone B
(As of Jan 01, 2010)

Revised Level: Zone C
(As of Apr 01, 2010)

Based on average price of fuel:

US$ 78.04 /barrel

US$ 84.66 /barrel
