JAL Announces International Fare Fuel Surcharge for April to May 2012

TOKYO, February 17, 2012: Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to apply the level of fuel surcharges on all international passenger tickets issued between April 1, 2012 and May 31, 2012 as detailed below. 

The fuel surcharge benchmark list for the fiscal year of 2012 (see below) has been adjusted from fiscal year 2011 to reflect the effects of the higher exchange rate of the Japanese yen last year. Fuel surcharge levels per sector in Japanese yen for Zones G, H and I have been changed while levels within Zones A to F remain the same. 

JAL sets fuel surcharge levels bimonthly based on the 2-month average price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel. The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the two month period of December 2011 and January 2012 averaged US$124.92 per barrel. With reference to the benchmark list for fiscal year 2012, this corresponds to Zone G of fuel surcharges which from April 2012, will range from 2,200 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to 23,500 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, 2012.
