BREAKING: Orlando International Airport Passengers May Face Delays Due To Shortage Of Jet Fuel

This morning, Sunday December 11, Orlando International Airport has shared an operations update regarding jet fuel shortages that may affect passengers ion the coming days.

Officials said their reserve fuel supply is lower than normal, and airline pilots flying in are being asked to top off their tanks before heading to MCO.

Delta Airlines has also posted an advisory telling passengers that ongoing fuel supply disruptions may impact travel to and from Orlando over the next two days.

MCO say that weather issues along the Gulf Coast had prevented reserve supply delivery of jet fuel to the airport.

The airport reports that the weather has lifted and ships have departed, but are warning passengers that flight disruptions may occur over the next few days.

They said international flights may also have to make refueling stops on their way to or from the airport, while this is happening.

At this time, airport officials said they're watching the situation and will adjust their operations as necessary.
