Fuel perhaps, concrete no.
The rationing is effective immediately, with exception for aircraft currently en route to LHR. The duration is undetermined sofar.
We confirm that 30% shortage of supply is applicable.
a 15% reduction for Long Haul home based carriers
a 36% reduction for Short Haul home based carriers
a 36% reduction for Long Haul visiting carriers
a 60% reduction for Short Haul visiting carriers
Long Haul is defined as longer than 5 hours.
Air BP is working with the other suppliers at LHR to seek alternative fuel supply to the airport.
