Japan Airline to increase Fuel Surcharge on International Fares

International passengers be ready to shell out more on your tickets. The Japan Airlines (JAL) is planning to hike fuel surcharge on all the passenger tickets on its international flights that are purchased between August 1 and September 30, 2011.

According to a recent statement, the Japan Airlines said that it is seeking the approval to raise the current fuel surcharge on all the international tickets that will be issued between August 1 and September 30 this year. The airline has already placed a request with the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism regarding the planned hike in international airfares.

The airline revealed that beginning April this year the fuel surcharge levels are being set on a bimonthly basis based on the 2-month average price. Earlier, the surcharge on Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel was set on a quarterly basis based on 3-month average price.

The Japan Airlines further disclosed that during the two month period of April and May 2011 the price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel averaged US$132.66 per barrel. “With reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for the fiscal year of 2011, this corresponds to Zone H of fuel surcharges that ranges from 3,000 Yen on a Japan-Korea ticket to 29,000 Yen on a Japan-USA ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets purchased in Japan,” the airline said.

The Japan Airlines is currently operating an average of nearly 22,000 domestic and international flights per month. It has a fleet of about 200 aircrafts, including Boeing 737-800s, 767s, 777s, and Brazilian-made Embraer E170. The airline is presently serving destinations in Europe, Asia, and Oceania. It also operates flight services in North America including Los Angeles, Honolulu, Chicago, San Francisco, New York and Vancouver. Besides, the Japan Airlines is also a member of oneworld Alliance, and has an international network covering above 225 destinations in 38 countries along with its codeshare partners.
