Japan Airlines (JAL) will maintain current levels of fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets purchased between April 1 and May 31, 2018.

JAL sets fuel surcharge levels bimonthly based on the 2-month average price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel.

The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the two month period of December 2017 and January 2018 averaged US$78.29 per barrel, which accounted for 8,762 yen in the average exchange rate of 111.92 JPY/USD during the same period.

As a result, with reference to the fuel surcharge benchmark list for FY2017 in Japanese yen, this corresponds to Zone C of fuel surcharges.

From April 1 to May 31, 2018, it will range from 500 yen on a Japan – Korea ticket to 10,500 yen on Japan – USA ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets for travel originating in Japan. (Full Story Here)
