Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to apply a lower level of fuel surcharges on all international passenger tickets issued between August 1 and September 30, 2012.
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 2012 averaged US$127.75 per barrel. With reference to the benchmark list for fiscal year 2012 (see below), this corresponds to Zone G of fuel surcharges which from August 2012, will range from 2,200 yen on a Japan - Korea ticket to 23,500 yen on a Japan - USA ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets purchased in Japan.
This level of surcharge will be applied to all international passenger tickets issued between August 1 and September 30, 2012.
