JAL Announces International Fare Fuel Surcharge for Tickets Issued Between April and May 2018

Japan Airlines (JAL) will maintain current levels of fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets purchased between April 1 and May 31, 2018.

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 2017 and January 2018 averaged US$78.29 per barrel, which accounted for 8,762 yen in the average exchange rate of 111.92 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 C of fuel surcharges. From April 1 to May 31, 2018, it will range from 500 yen on a Japan – Korea ticket to 10,500 yen on Japan – USA ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets for travel originating in Japan.
