ANA to Raise International Fuel Surcharge for February – March 2010

TOKYO December 15, 2009 – Owing to the continued rise in the cost of jet fuel (Singapore kerosene), ANA today applied to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to raise its fuel surcharge on international flights from February 1 to March 31, 2010.

The fuel surcharge is fixed for a period of two months, after which it is revised on the basis of the average market price of Singapore kerosene for the two months previous to the date of application for revision. Jet fuel rose to an average of US$82.4 per barrel from October to November 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 two months from February 1 to March 31, 2010 regardless of market movements. The levels stated are subject to government approval.
(2) The level of the fuel surcharge from April 1, 2010 will be announced as soon as it is ready.
(3) If the two 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.
