PHILIPSBURG St Maarten — A shortage of jet fuel

first_imgPHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten — A shortage of jet fuel in St. Maarten has resulted in rationing at the Princess Juliana International Airport (PJIA) “seriously affecting the operations of private jets,” according to the island’s newspaper The Daily Herald.According to the The Daily Herald “no commercial aircraft were affected, a number of private jets had to fly to Antigua to be fuelled.”The shortage was attributed to the annual closing of the Point a Pierre refinery, located in South Trinidad, Trinidad and Tobago, to undergo an annual maintenance shutdown from December 28 to January 4 and the high sea swells in the region which have led to tanker delays.A new delivery this this weekend is expected to bring operations back to normal.last_img
