All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines will significantly reduce special charges called “fuel surcharges” for fares on international flights issued in April and May this year. As a result of the decline in crude oil prices, routes to North America and Europe will be reduced by more than 10,000 yen each way.
The fuel surcharge is a special charge that airlines add to international fares according to the fuel price of aircraft, reviewed every two months.
As for this, ANA and Japan Airlines announced that the price of tickets issued in April and May will be drastically reduced, assuming that fuel prices of aircraft are falling due to a decline in crude oil price.
Both are one-way fuel surcharges,
▽ flights with North America and Europe etc. from 17,500 yen to 7,000 yen,
▽ lines with Hawaii and Indonesia etc. from 11,000 yen to 4000 yen,
▽ Thailand and Singapore etc. The route from 8500 yen to 3000 yen,
the route with Guam and Vietnam etc. from 5000 yen to 2000 yen,
the route with China, Taiwan, Hong Kong from 4500 yen to 1500 yen,
the route with Korea is Reduce from 1500 yen to 300 yen.
Although ten consecutive holidays from April to May are full of reservations for overseas tours, the reduction in fuel surcharge this time will likely mitigate the burden of users who purchase airline tickets after April.
