Fuel unavailability affects Tuvalu flights

Unavailability of fuel at the Funafuti Airport will directly affect passenger and baggage capacity on all Fiji Airways flights to and from Tuvalu.

The airline in a statement said in the past 24 hours, Funafuti Airport officials have notified them that there is less than 1000 liters of fuel available in Tuvalu.

Due to this situation, Fiji Airways will need to carry return fuel from Fiji for all flights to and from Funafuti and this situation will persist until 12 March by which time a fuel delivery is expected.

As a result, Fiji Airways must adjust its operations to accommodate the carriage of this extra fuel, significantly reducing passenger and baggage capacity to the island.

Due to the fuel supply challenge in Tuvalu, the airline anticipates that there will be necessary adjustments to passenger and baggage loads on its flights to and from Funafuti, and some guests may not be able to travel as booked.
