Jet Fuel Suppliers Ration Fuel To Melbourne Airport

Published on : Saturday, November 26, 2016

Melbourne airportMelbourne Airport has been advised that the Joint User Hydrant Installation (JUHI) Joint Venture is currently managing an issue with the upstream supply of jet fuel at ports and refineries. This is impacting the volume of fuel being transported to Melbourne Airport. As a result, temporary fuel rationing measures have been implemented by the JUHI.


Jet fuel supply contracts are negotiated directly between airlines and fuel suppliers. JUHI management has confirmed that there is no problem with fuel infrastructure at the airport and the facility is functioning normally.


Melbourne Airport understands that airlines are managing potential impacts and that there has been limited impact on airline schedules at this stage.


Previous international experience has identified several sensible, proven steps that can be taken to best support airlines during a fuel supply issue such as this. Melbourne Airport encourages the JUHI to consider prioritising the allocation of available fuel to those airlines most in need and with limited alternatives to manage the disruption, such as long haul international carriers. Melbourne Airport further calls on all fuel suppliers to exert every possible effort to meet their commitments to airlines flying from Melbourne Airport.


Melbourne Airport will continue to work closely with all airlines to accommodate any changes in their operational plans.
