TOKYO February 16, 2009 - In line with rapid fall in the cost of jet fuel (Singapore kerosene) at the end of last year, ANA today applied to the Ministry of Land Infrastructure and Transport to lower its fuel surcharge on international flights from April 1 to June, 2009.

The fuel surcharge is fixed for a period of three months, after which it is revised on the basis of the average market price of Singapore kerosene for the three months previous to the date of application for revision. Jet fuel fell to an average of US$64.22 per barrel from November 2008 to January this year, and ANA is pleased to be able to pass on the benefit of that fall to its valued customers.

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 March 1 to June 30, 2009 regardless of market movements. The levels stated are subject to government approval.
(2) The next revision of the fuel surcharge will be announced in May, in accordance with the chart below, and will apply to tickets issued on or after July 1, 2009 . If the three months average cost of Singapore kerosene falls below US$60 per barrel the fuel surcharge will be removed altogether.

Notes
(1) The fuel surcharge applies in its entirety to all fares, including discount fares, child fares and award tickets. It is not subject to any discount whatsoever. Children under the age of two who do not occupy a seat will not be subject to the surcharge.
(2) In the case of refunded tickets, the surcharge will be refunded in full and will not be subject to any charges.
