B. ECONOMIC FACTORS
経済要因について
The Australian Government handed down the 2014-2015 federal budget on 12th May 2014. The
budget is considered to be the toughest budget in many years and is considered to have an unfair
impact on students, the elderly as well as higher income earners who will face an additional tax.
Whilst reports say that the economy will face “tough times ahead” there is so far no evidence of a
slow-down in outbound travel. オーストラリア政府の連邦予算が発表され、長年厳しいと考えられていたが、学生、高齢者や高所得者に不公平な対応
となるとみなされている。とはいえ、アウトバウンドが減速することにはつながっていない。

C. TRAVEL TRENDS AND OUTLOOK
RELEVENT TRAVEL TRADE NEWS and INFORMATION
April 2014
カンタス航空の燃油付加運賃変更について
Qantas to change YQ calculations
Qantas has revealed that it will change the way fuel surcharges (YQ) are applied, with the levy to be
calculated based on the point of origin of the itinerary, rather than the country where the ticket is
issued. The change will see the fuel surcharge applied in the currency of the originating country, then
converted to the local currency in the ticketing country using the exchange rate at booking time.
There will be no change to QF fuel surcharge levels where tickets are issued in the same country as
the point of origin. The move is effective from 07 May for trips starting in Australia, NZ, Canada,
Mexico, the UK, Europe, North Africa, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Dubai, with other countries
of origin rolling out from Jun this year. (…) Travel Daily – April 11th 2014

Jetstar takes off to Tokyo ジェットスターの新規東京線
Jetstar Airways flew its inaugural flight from Melbourne to Tokyo last Tuesday, beginning a four times
weekly direct service between the two destinations. The flight is the first time the Qantas Group has
flown non-stop to Tokyo, after Qantas stopped direct flights from Melbourne in 2008, The Age
reported. The flights take 10.5 hours and are flown on a wide body A380 which included business
class. Jetstar’s new service will link in with its Japanese subsidiary, Jetstar Japan which has recently
become the biggest domestic carrier in the country, carrying 3 million passengers. The new flights
will also boost the Victorian economy, which will get an expected 50,000 Japanese visitors each year.

Japan’s companies targeting tourists 日本の企業が求める観光客
Japanese retailers are cracking onto the benefits of targeting burgeoning tourist numbers to Japan.
With the Japanese government’s push for tourism and a weaker yen, nearly double the average
number of tourists have arrived in the past decade, the Japan Daily Press reported. In 2013, tourists
provided a massive injection of money into the Japanese economy, spending US $14 billion on
Japanese products. Japanese retailers are using different methods to benefit from this influx,
including language, product and facility options. According to the Japanese Tourism Authority, the
money spent by tourists increased 1.42 trillion yen on 2012 numbers, a 30 per cent increase. ETB –
