JAL Announces International Fare Fuel Surcharge for Tickets Issued Between June and July 2018

Japan Airlines (JAL) will maintain current levels of fuel surcharge on international passenger tickets purchased in Japan between June 1 and July 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 February and March 2018 averaged US$79.58 per barrel, which accounted for 8,504 yen in the average exchange rate of 106.86 JPY/USD during the same period.

As a result, with reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for FY2018 in Japanese yen, this corresponds to Zone C of fuel surcharges. From June 1 to July 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.
