JAL International Fare Fuel Surcharge from April to May 2011

 

TOKYO, February 18, 2011: Japan Airlines will from April 2011, revise its fuel surcharge calculations and adjust levels every 2 months instead of the current interval of 3 months, based on the average price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel for the 2-month period before the last 2 months, instead of an average of 3 months previously.

The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the 2 month period of December 2010 and January 2011 averaged US$106.60 per barrel. With reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for the fiscal year of 2011 (see below), this corresponds to Zone E fuel surcharges which range from 1,500 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to 17,500 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 April 1 and May 31, 2011.

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 remains reluctantly obliged to ask its international passengers to bear part of the burden caused by the increase in the price of fuel.
