JAL maintains int'l fare fuel surcharge for tickets issued between April and May
Japan Airlines (JAL) has requested for approval from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to maintain the fuel surcharges applied on all international passenger tickets issued between April 1 and May 31.
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 2012 and January 2013 averaged $126.51 per barrel. For example, from April to May 2013, it will range from 2,200 yen on a Japan-Korea ticket to 23,500 yen on a Japan-U.S. ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets purchased in Japan.
