Abstract: We describe all the elliptic fibrations with section on the Kummer surface $ X$ of the Jacobian of a very general curve $ C$ of genus $ 2$ over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0, modulo the automorphism group of $ X$ and the symmetric group on the Weierstrass points of $ C$. In particular, we compute elliptic parameters and Weierstrass equations for the 25 different fibrations and analyze the reducible fibers and Mordell-Weil lattices. This answers completely a question posed by Kuwata and Shioda in 2008.
