Jet fuel supply at Melbourne International Airport

Media Release

DC201/2016

25 November 2016

The supply of jet fuel at Australian airports is a commercial matter negotiated directly between fuel suppliers and airlines, and the Australian Government is calling on all stakeholders to work together to resolve the current issue at Melbourne Airport.

Temporary rationing measures have been in place to mitigate the impact of a disruption in fuel supply. I have been advised by my Department that the airlines and fuel suppliers are working together to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.

A reliable supply of fuel is vital to the broader aviation industry. The Australian Government is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to engage with all stakeholders until the situation is resolved.

Travellers are advised to stay in contact with their airline to determine any changes to scheduling.
