Update: Jet fuel supply constraints at O.R. Tambo International Airport
Wednesday, November 02, 2011 | 00:00

Further to the media statement released on 27 October 2011, Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) continues to closely monitor fuel supply constraints at O.R. Tambo International Airport.

The airport currently has 3.1 days’ worth of jet fuel stock available. The situation has improved from the 2.5 days reported previously but ACSA will continue to closely monitor fuel supply levels. 

“We normally keep five days’ worth of fuel stock available. However, because of disruptions in supply, the stock level reduced to two-and-a-half days but has since stabilised. It does not mean that the airport will run out of fuel in two-and-a-half days as this would only happen if no fuel at all was received. Fuel is being delivered daily, but not in the normal quantities,” said Unathi Batyashe-Fills, ACSA’s Manager of Communications & Brand at O.R. Tambo International Airport.

Management had discussions with the relevant role players, in particular the fuel suppliers, and everything possible is being done to ensure that the fuel supply situation normalises as soon as possible.  

“At this stage, no disruptions in terms of flight operations are anticipated,” Batyashe-Fillis concluded.
