The present paper is devoted to the study of Jensen type inequalities for fractional integration on finite subintervals of the real axis. The complete form of Jensen's inequality and the generalized Jensen's inequality are investigated by using the Chebyshev inequality. As applications, some new integral inequalities, including Holder's and Minkowski's inequalities, are obtained by using Jensen's inequality via Riemann-Liouville fractional integrals.
