Japan Airlines increases air cargo fuel surcharge from September

Japan Airlines (JAL) has applied to the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to revise up its international cargo fuel surcharge for flights departing from Japan only, from September 2012.

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 July in 2012 was US$117.58 per barrel, the benchmark fuel price used for calculation of the fuel surcharge level will be within the range of US$115.00 to US$119.99 per barrel (refer to table below).

The international cargo fuel surcharge will therefore be 115 yen per kg on long-haul international routes, 93 yen per kg on medium-haul international routes, and 73 yen on short-haul routes.
