Japan Airlines (JAL) will maintain current levels of fuel surcharge on international passenger tickets purchased in Japan between October 1 and November 30, 2020.
JAL sets fuel surcharge levels bimonthly based on the two month average price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel. The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the two month period of June and July 2020 averaged USD 42.43 per barrel, which accounted for JPY 4,548 in the average exchange rate of JPY/USD 107.18 during the same period.
As a result, with reference to the benchmark list for FY2020, fuel surcharges will not be collected for tickets purchased in Japan between October 1 and November 30, 2020.
