JAL Announces International Fare Fuel Surcharge For Tickets Issued Between June And July 2017

Japan Airlines (JAL) announces that it will maintain the current level of fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets purchased between June 1 and July 31, 2017.

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 February and March 2017 averaged US$63.98 per barrel, which accounted for 7,232 yen in the average exchange rate of 113.04 JPY/USD during the same period.

As a result, with reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for FY2017 in Japanese yen, this corresponds to zone B of fuel surcharges. From June 1 to July 31, 2017, it will continually range from 300 yen on a Japan – Korea ticket to 7,000 yen on Japan – USA ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets for travel originating in Japan.
