Johannesburg - Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) has assured traveling soccer fans that there was no need to worry about a shortage of fuel during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

"ACSA is confident that the operational plans in place will ensure that no aviation fuel shortages are experienced during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

"As such, it has received priority attention with the overall plan and contingencies have been presented to and accepted by Parliament on 10 February," said ACSA general manager Chris Hlekane on Tuesday.

He said a working committee had also been set up to co-ordinate the fuel supply to airports, adding that a daily plan for fuel usage and delivery had been developed specifically for the month-long tourney.
