ASL faces grounded operations
- after dealer suspends fuel supplies to Ogle
The operations of domestic air charter service Air Services Limited (ASL) could be grounded by tomorrow after its sole fuel dealer Rubis West Indies gave notice that it would be suspending its supplies to the Ogle International Airport (OAI) over the comingling of its product.
ASL General Manager Annette Arjoon-Martins last evening announced at a news conference that the company had started rationing its fuel stores but will most likely have to cease operation by tomorrow.
She said Rubis communicated that it discovered that its into-plane provider at Ogle Airport Caribbean Aviation Maintenance Services Ltd (CAMS) received jet fuel from another supplier and the product was comingled with Rubis’ product in the storage tanks at Ogle. As a result, Rubis indicated that it was suspending its supply to Ogle with immediate effect until it is able to verify the integrity of the comingled fuel.
