Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Tourism (MLIT) to set the level of fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets purchased between August 1 and September 30, 2017.
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 2017 averaged US$62.51 per barrel, which accounted for 6,947 yen in the average exchange rate of 111.14 JPY/USD during the same period.
As a result, with reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for FY2017 in Japanese yen, this corresponds to zone A of fuel surcharges. From August 1 to September 30, 2017, it will range from 200 yen on a Japan – Korea ticket to 3,500 yen on Japan – USA ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets for travel originating in Japan.
