Fiji Airways statement on fuel shortage on Tuvalu

Fiji Airways passengers travelling to Funafuti, Tuvalu may experience disruptions to their flight, including passenger denied boarding and baggage offloads, due to the unavailability of fuel supply on the island. The issue has been ongoing since last week. The shortage of aviation fuel supply means that the aircraft needs to carry sufficient fuel for the return journey and therefore requires the extra weight.

The next shipment of aviation fuel replacement stock is expected to arrive on October 5th. Until then, the current contingency of carrying return fuel will remain in effect, with the expected passenger and baggage offloads as required to operate the flight safely.

Fiji Airways Executive General Manager Corporate Affairs, Ms. Shaenaz Voss said: “We acknowledge it is unfortunate but a necessary step we must take in order to operate the service. This is an issue we continue to face and have highlighted to the Tuvalu Government to address. We apologise to our passengers who may face disruptions to their travel plans due to this fuel issue which is out of our control.”
