JAL to revise cargo fuel surcharge for May 2010

Japan Airlines (JAL) has applied to the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to revise from May 1, 2010, its international cargo fuel surcharge for flights departing from Japan only.

Since April 1, 2009, JAL started adjusting its cargo fuel surcharge levels on a monthly basis by using the one-month average fuel price of Singapore kerosene of the month before last. As the average fuel price of Singapore kerosene for the month of March in 2010 was US$87.54 per barrel, the benchmark fuel price used for calculation of the fuel surcharge level in May will be within the range of US$85.00 to US$89.99 per barrel (refer to table below).

The international cargo fuel surcharge will therefore increase on long-haul international routes from 73 yen per kg to 80 yen, on medium-haul international routes from 63 yen per kg to 69 yen, and on short-haul routes from 53 yen per kg to 58 yen accordingly.
