Air Chathams: holiday flights still up in the air

From First Up, 5:34 am on 8 December 2022

Upcoming holiday travel plans could -- potentially -- be disrupted due to a dud batch of aviation fuel. Routine testing found the shipment of 25 million litres of fuel was not fit for purpose and taken out of circulation yesterday. Z Energy, owner of the contaminated shipment, told airlines last night they would need to conserve fuel in coming weeks as a result. Nathan Rarere spoke with the general manager of one of our smaller carriers, Air Chathams and asked Duane Emeny what this means for the airline's flights over the holidays.
