JAL Maintains No International Fare Fuel Surcharge For Tickets Issued Between August And September 2016
Tokyo June 8, 2016: Japan Airlines (JAL) announces that it will maintain no fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets purchased between August 1 and September 30, 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 April and May 2016 averaged US$52.28 per barrel, which accounted for 5,726 yen in the average exchange rate of 109.52 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 August 1 and September 30, 2016.
Fuel Surcharge for the period: August 1 ~ September 30, 2016
