Astana. October 29. KazTAG - The situation with aviation fuels and lubricants has reached a peak in three cities, the fares for tickets may be increased, said the press-services of SCAT air company.
“The stocks of aviation fuel in the company have reached a critical level. The situation is critical in three cities: the company has enough aviation fuel reserves in Aktau only for the next four days, and for two days in Aktobe and Nur-Sultan. Trying to ensure one hundred percent fulfillment of the flight schedule, but at the same time not receiving the necessary volumes of aviation fuel, the company zeroed its own stocks in most of the airports of Kazakhstan,” said the company.
According to the airline company,  "flights from Nur-Sultan, for example, could be suspended this Tuesday."
“SCAT was able to prevent the shutdown of flights by purchasing a small amount of fuel at a double rate. This resource will only last for two days of uninterrupted air communication. It is important to understand that at the airports of Aktau, Aktobe and Nur-Sultan, the volumes of aviation kerosene are also exhausted. That is, the air harbors of these cities at the moment will not be able to provide carriers under any circumstances, ”said the statement.
“A significant decrease in the production of aviation fuel led to the fact that the air carrier not only received less than the required rate, but also had to buy small volumes at inflated prices,” said SCAT.
