JAL to maintain fuel surcharge for all international tickets

Written by editor

Tokyo – The JAL Group will maintain the current level of fuel surcharge for all international passenger tickets issued between January and March, 2011.

Tokyo – The JAL Group will maintain the current level of fuel surcharge for all international passenger tickets issued between January and March, 2011.

The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the 3 month period from August to October 2010 averaged US$89.83 per barrel. With reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for the fiscal year of 2010 this remains corresponding to Zone C where fuel surcharges range from 500 yen on a Japan – Korea ticket to 10,500 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 January 1, and March 31, 2011.

The company continues to conduct such countermeasures as introducing more fuel-efficient, small and medium-sized aircraft to its fleet, to minimize the full impact of high fuel prices.

Despite these measures, the company remains reluctantly obliged to ask its international passengers to bear part of the burden caused by the increase in the price of fuel.
