JAL Announces International Fare Fuel Surcharge for Tickets Issued Between June and July 2021
Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from Japan`s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to set the level of fuel surcharge on international passenger tickets purchased in Japan between June 1 and July 31, 2021.
JAL sets fuel surcharge levels bimonthly based on the two-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 2021 averaged USD66.08 per barrel, which accounted for JPY7,084 in the average exchange rate of JPY/USD 107.20 during the same period.
As a result, with reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for FY2021, this corresponds to Zone B. From June 1 to July 31, 2021, the fuel surcharge will range from JPY300 on a Japan-Korea ticket to JPY7,700 on a Japan-USA ticket per person per sector flown, for travel originating in Japan.
