JAL cargo fuel surcharge for February 2010

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

Since April 01, 2009, JAL started adjusting its 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 December in 2009 was US$83.20 per barrel, the benchmark fuel price used for calculation of the fuel surcharge level in February will be within the range of US$80.00 to US$84.99 per barrel (refer to table below).

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