Air transport in Mozambique has new competition rules
Mozambique Airlines (LAM) announced yesterday that it had overcome the flights delays that occurred last week due to the carrier’s difficulties in making prepayments required by a fuel supplier.
Speaking to Lusa, a source from the Mozambican national carrier said that fuel was now being supplied regularly in Maputo and at airports in the provincial capitals of Nampula, Tete and Pemba.
“The situation has been normalised. Fuel supplies have resumed, and flights are operating regularly,” the source said.
Last week, LAM said it had to turn to an alternative supplier because of fuel shortages at BP, but the company said the prepayments required were unsustainable.
