Japan Airlines will change the method for collecting the fuel surcharge on tickets issued in Australia and departing from Australia from 25 April 2012 onwards.
Current Method: Collected as a YQ tax amount.
New Method: Collected as a Q-surcharge amount in the fare calculation line.
There is no change to the amount required, and this will continue to be advised every two months as usual. For itineraries not departing Australia, the YQ method will continue to be used.
Gross Published Fares:
Your GDS will be updated to reflect this change and will quote the required amount automatically.
Example: SYD-TYO-HKG-TYO-SYD – with a gross fare of AUD9494 (AUD8918 + AUD576 Fuel Surcharge Q-surcharge), net fare should be the applicable net fare amount shown in the tariff plus AUD576 for the fuel surcharge. In this case the amount is non-commissionable as net fares are non-commissionable.
If you have any queries regarding this change, please contact the agency service desk on
1300-359-525, your JAL sales rep or the marketing section on firstname.lastname@example.org.
