Fiji's Air Pacific has had to off-load some passengers and bags on flights to Tuvalu to enable its aircraft to carry return fuel to Funafuti.

FBC news reports the airline saying there has been a shortage of aviation fuel in Tuvalu for the past two weeks.

The airline says it has now been assured processes are in place to ensure a consistent supply of fuel, to enable its planes to re-fuel for the return trip.
