JAL Announces International Fare Fuel Surcharge for Tickets Issued Between October and November 2021
TOKYO, August 18, 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 October 1 and November 30, 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 June and July 2021
averaged USD76.67 per barrel, which accounted for JPY8,449 in the average exchange rate of
JPY/USD 110.19 during the same period.
As a result, with reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for FY2021, this corresponds to Zone C. From October 1 to November 30, 2021, the fuel surcharge will range from JPY600 on a Japan-Korea ticket to
JPY11,600 on a Japan-USA ticket per person per sector flown, for travel originating in Japan.
