Meetings with Home Office, UK Border Agency and DECC

We have been facilitating moves with the Home Office on the issue of addressing Misdirected Flights at airports and continue to meet with the UK Border Office on Border Security.

Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) for consultation on the role of the UK refining and fuel import sectors in meeting UK demand for refined oil products which closed in mid July.

Responding to the consultation the AOA made a number of points regarding airports experiencing sporadic supply disruptions.

We also raised the lack of comprehensive UK pipeline network and further discussions with the DECC are expected.
