JOHANNESBURG – The Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) has assured the public that there is still fuel at all airports despite fears of shortages caused by damage to rail infrastructure following recent flooding in KwaZulu- Native.

Acsa said it still has two to three days of jet fuel left.

Earlier this week, United Airlines suspended travel between New York and OR Tambo International Airport, citing airport-wide fuel shortages, but Acsa said that was not entirely does the case.

Group Head for Operations Management at Acsa, Terence Delomoney: “There are different players in the value chain and as Acsa we provide storage facilities to different companies to store their fuel in these facilities. These companies have direct agreements and contracts with the various airlines.

They asked the airlines to do what they call fuel tinkering: “Instead of taking all the fuel from OR Tambo, you take the minimum fuel from OR Tambo.”

Delomoney said if its reserves are not replenished in time, they may have to take tougher action.
