Nippon Cargo Airlines
Revision of fuel surcharges for international air cargoes departing from Japan
Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA, headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo: President Tadamasa Ishida) has accelerated the renewal of its fleet, as laid out in its medium- to long-term management plan, “The Phoenix Project,” and will start operations with its new fleet of B747-400F aircraft in April. NCA has consequently revised its existing fuel surcharge system and established a new application table. The Singapore Kerosene fuel price, which is the benchmark price for NCA, has remained high since March, fluctuating between USD120 and USD130 per barrel. In response to these surging fuel prices, NCA filed an application today with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport to revise its fuel surcharges based on the new table.
