Cape Town's jet fuel shortage seems to be over, with the airport stating it now has fuel availability for up to 4.5 days
A week ago, the Airline Association of Southern Africa (AASA) called on the South African Government to take action on a jet fuel shortage at Cape Town International Airport, which would have caused significant disruptions in the form of flight delays and cancellations.
The jet fuel shortage at Cape Town had been caused by rough seas, which led to a significant delay in delivering oil at Cape Town's port. The subsequent lack of the product induced Cape Town's airport to impose jet fuel rations, which caused the immediate reaction of the AASA.
Luckily, the sea has calmed down, and the tanker has made it to Cape Town's port, where it has delivered the product.
