Chaos at Cape Town International Airport eased
The chaos at Cape Town International Airport has eased since fuel became available late on Sunday afternoon, but airlines have nevertheless been warned to keep their contingency plans in place. Fuel became available on the runway just after five o’clock. However, BP spokesperson Kader Jacobs said that airlines would have to keep their contingency plans in place for three or four more days to allow the airport to build up a fuel reserve. Major delays became the order of the day when tanks ran dry at the weekend and even the Minister of Arts and Culture Pallo Jordan had to endure a delay of some six hours on a flight to Johannesburg.
