Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) has issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) to update airlines of the current state of jet fuel supply at Cape Town International Airport (CTIA). Regrettably, the airport has received a report from fuel suppliers which revealed further delays pertaining to the delivery of jet fuel to CTIA.
ACSA has been working closely with airlines to reduce uplift out of Cape Town; and due to the added risks has had to introduce further restrictions on fuel uplift to conserve fuel stocks until a new consignment of jet fuel arrives.
ACSA will continue to work with airlines to limit impact on flight operations which includes reducing passenger loads, however based on the current risk assessment report airlines have been requested to conduct technical stops to uplift fuel at alternative airports.
ACSA will remain in constant contact with all the affected stakeholders to explore and implement possible mitigating factors to calm the situation and calls on all partners to ensure that passengers are updated with the latest flight schedules.
At present, there is no impact on scheduled flights, however passengers are requested and urged to continuously monitor developments around this issue. ACSA teams are working round the clock to ensure that the public and all affected stakeholders have access to the latest information.
