JAL Announces International Fare Fuel Surcharge for Tickets Issued between December 2013 and January 2014

TOKYOOctober18, 2013: Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to revise up the fuel surcharges applied on all international passenger tickets issued between December 1, 2013 and January 31, 2014 as detailed below.

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 August and September 2013 averaged US$124.34 per barrel. With reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for fiscal year 2013 (see below), this corresponds to Zone G of fuel surcharges. From December 2013 to January 2014, it 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 December 1, 2013 and January 31, 2014.
