JAL Announces International Fare Fuel Surcharge for Tickets Issued Between June and July 2022
TOKYO, April 19,2022 – 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, 2022.
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 2022 and March
2022 averaged USD122.40 per barrel, which accounted for JPY14,323 in the average exchange rate of JPY/USD 117.02 during the same period. As a result, with reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for FY2022, this corresponds to Zone I from June 1 to July 31, 2022.
