Good News For George Airport: Fuel Shortage Problem Easing

It’s okay to fly to George, there’s enough fuel to get home again.

Travellers in George can breathe a sigh of relief as the fuel shortage being experienced at the airport is receiving urgent attention.

Head of sales and distribution at FlySafair Kirby Gordon says the Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) has been working around the clock to limit the impact the shortage may have on holidaymakers.

“Acsa and the fuel suppliers have been excellent at working with the airlines to ensure that there is enough fuel in George to complete all the scheduled flights. At this stage, the reserves are building up and lasting and indications are that additional fuel is being brought in by tanker from other airports to ensure that George no longer has an issue,” he said.
