    Application to revise fuel surcharges for flights departing from Japan

Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA, headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo; President Tadamasa Ishida) filed an application on July 31 with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport to revise its fuel surcharges for flights departing from Japan. The fuel surcharges will be increased to JPY156/kg for TC1/TC2, JPY133/kg for TC3 long distance and JPY111/kg for TC3 short distance. The new prices will take effect on September 1, 2008.

The Singapore kerosene fuel price (MOPS), which is the benchmark price for NCA, surpassed $140 per barrel for 14 consecutive business days between May 5 and May 23. At present the price continues to remain high, exceeding $150 per barrel. Under such a circumstance, NCA has decided that efforts on the part of NCA’s management alone are insufficient to counter the abnormal surge in fuel prices, and thus must reluctantly file an application to revise its fuel surcharge.
