The aviation industry in Kenya and Uganda is staring at a crisis that could cost the two countries millions of shillings due to a looming jet fuel shortage.
According to the information from NBO, Kencor, the oil marketing company tendered to deliver jet fuel known as Jet A1, has failed to do so after it encountered problems at the port of loading.
This has caused major scare especially in the airline industry with reports indicating that the current stock could only last until the 23 of this month.
In another development, earlier this week Tanzania had come to Kenya’s rescue by pledging to deliver a consignment of jet fuel. In this rescue Tanzania agreed to sell ten tonnes of Jet A1 to Kenya.
