|ANA to Raise International Fuel Surcharge for April - June 2008|
TOKYO February 15, 2008 - ANA today applied to the Ministry of Land Infrastructure and Transport to raise its fuel surcharge on international flights from April 1, 2008.
Since July last year, ANA has fixed its fuel surcharge for a three month period, revising it on the basis of the average market price of Singapore kerosene for the previous three months. Jet fuel (Singapore kerosene) rose to an average of US$109.06 per barrel from November 2007 to January this year, in view of which ANA regrets that it must ask its valued customers to once again share the increased cost burden, in spite of ongoing efforts to curb costs and increase revenues.
|Surcharge Levels (per person per single sector)|
|Conditions for Revision (and removal) of the Surcharge|
|(1) The fuel surcharge will not be revised for the three months from April 1, 2008 to June 31, 2008 regardless of market movements. The levels stated are subject to government approval.
(2) The level, form, and fuel price index for the fuel surcharge from July 1, 2008, will be fixed in May this year, taking the three month average from February to April, 2008.
(3) If the three months average cost of Singapore kerosene falls below US$50 per barrel the fuel surcharge will be removed altogether.
|(1) The fuel surcharge applies to all fares, including discount fares, child fares and award tickets. It is not subject to any discount whatsoever.
(2) In the case of refunded tickets, the surcharge will be refunded in full and will not be subject to any charges.
(3) The actual amount of the surcharge is subject to government approval and may vary from that stated.
