No change in fuel surcharge for JAL for passengers at the moment

The JAL Group will maintain the current level of fuel surcharge for all international passenger tickets issued between July and September, 2010.

The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the 3 month period from February 2010 to April 2010 averaged US$88.51 per barrel. With reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for the fiscal year of 2010 (see below), this remains corresponding to Zone C where fuel surcharges range from 500 yen on a Japan – Korea ticket to 13,500 yen on a Japan- Brazil 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 July 1, and September 30, 2010.

The company is looking to continue 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.
