Transnet says it has started increasing supplies of jet fuel to the OR Tambo International Airport to address the shortage currently being experienced at the airport.

Dwindling supplies of jet fuel have affected several international flights, with airlines having to divert flights to other airports to refuel.

Spokesperson, Ayanda Shezi says the repair of Transnet infrastructure, damaged in the recent KwaZulu-Natal floods, is being fast-tracked to ensure the increased delivery of fuel to facilities in Gauteng.

She says they hope to have the shortages addressed as soon as possible.
