A shortage of fuel at Avgas in Antigua could affected local air service to Montserrat.
Avgas is used by airlines that service Montserrat, according to Montserrat’s Ministry of Communications, Works and Labour.
The shortage is expected to last “a couple of days and will likely affect the airlines’ schedules” of both FlyMontserrat and SVG Air, according to a statement from the Ministry. “Both airlines are currently making best efforts, to the extent possible, to minimize disruptions to their service.”
The situation was beyond the control of local authorities and the government, the Ministry said.
