JAL Applies for International Cargo Fuel Surcharge Decrease

Tokyo November 27,2008: Today JAL filed an application with the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLITT) to revise from January 1, 2009 the international cargo fuel surcharge for flights departing from Japan only.

The international cargo fuel surcharge on long-haul international routes for flights departing Japan will decrease from 157 yen to 115 yen per kg. In the case of medium-haul international routes, the surcharge will decrease from 135 to 99 yen per kg, and on short-haul routes from 113 yen to 83 yen per kg (see below).

JAL has decided to decrease the fuel surcharge on international cargo flights departing Japan, as during the 3-month period August - October 2008 the price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel averaged US$115.92 per barrel.

The company is conducting a wide range of countermeasures to limit the full impact of the price increase including fuel hedging, fuel consumption reductions, and the introduction of more fuel-efficient medium-sized aircraft to its freighter fleet. 

Despite these measures, the company is still reluctantly obliged to ask its international cargo customers to bear part of the burden caused by the unprecedented increase in the price of fuel over the past few years.
