JAL Announces No International Fare Fuel Surcharge For Tickets Issued Between April And May 2016

Tokyo February 9, 2016: Japan Airlines (JAL) announces that there will be no fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets purchased between April 1 and May 31, 2016.

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 2015 and January 2016 averaged US$42.98 per barrel, which accounted for 5,163 yen in the average exchange rate of 120.14 JPY/USD during the same period.

As a result, with reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for FY2016 in Japanese yen, this corresponds to zone of “below 6,000 Yen” resulting in no fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets purchased between April 1 and May 31, 2016.

The last announcement of no international fare fuel surcharge with JAL was seven years ago, which was set for three months from July through September in 2009.*

*Fuel surcharge set based on the 3-month average price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel at that time.
