Summary

  • Data by the Petroleum Institute of East Africa (PIEA) shows that consumption in three months to September rose to 104.53 million litres compared to 62.03 million litres in the previous quarter ended June.
  • This puts daily consumption at about 1.14 million litres compared with 0.68 million litres that was recorded in the period in which air travel was restricted to few charted flights and cargo services.
  • The recovery came on the back of State decision to restart local flights at the end of July and international ones on August 1, offering reprieve to the aviation industry.
