Methodology for Platts Jet Fuel price index
Platts Jet Fuel Price Index is published by S&P Global Platts, reflecting its daily assessments of physical spot market Jet Fuel spot prices in the relevant regional centers. When a market is not assessed on a particular day, for instance because of a market holiday, the previous working day's spot market price assessment is used.
Each of the individual Platts' assessments is given a weighting by Platts in the regional baskets, based primarily on demand for jet fuel in the region; in a similar way, each of the regional indices is given a weighting in the Global Composite Index .
These values are compared with the average spot prices in 2000, similarly weighted by demand during that period, to generate a percentage figure reflecting the overall rise in markets compared to the base period. As an example, an index value of 200 reflects a doubling of price since the year 2000.
The full detail of the methodology can be found on the S&P Global Platts website.
