National Party on jet fuel supply issues

From Morning Report, 6:13 am on 8 December 2022

The National Party says airlines being forced to conserve jet fuel due to a dud fuel shipment is another blow for festive season travel.

Airlines are rationing their aviation fuel allowance at Auckland Airport, after a contaminated shipment was rejected on arrival.

Z Energy, owner of the dodgy shipment, says their next shipment will arrive by 12 December at the latest, and will be back to full operations by 18 December. 

National Party spokesperson on energy and resources Stuart Smith spoke to Corin Dann.
