TOKYO, Dec 16 (FAM) – Japan Airlines (JAL) has applied to the Japanese Ministry of Land,
Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to revise its international cargo
fuel surcharge for flights departing from Japan from January 1, 2017.
JAL adjusts 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 November in 2016
was US$56.47 per barrel, the benchmark fuel price used for calculation of the
fuel surcharge level will be below US$60.00 per barrel.
