Acsa says it's working on solution to George Airport fuel issue
The fuel shortage at George Aiport could affect flights for the next two weeks.
CAPE TOWN - Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) says it is working on alternative methods of getting fuel to George Airport.
Acsa has stated that the current fuel shortage at the Garden Route airport is due to an “off-specification delivery of Jet A-1 fuel”.
The fuel shortage could affect flights for the next two weeks.
In the meantime, Acsa says it is working with its fuelling partners and other stakeholders to ensure the arrival of fuel to the airport.
Some of Acsa’s plans include utilising fuel supplies from East London and Durban.
Mango Airlines has stated the airline is working with Acsa to deal with the problem and doesn’t expect its flights to be affected due to the contingency plans it has put in place to limit fuel uplift in George.
