Great news from White Rose Aviation:
Kiribati Oil Co (KOil) have agreed to supply avgas 100LL at PLCH (Kiribati, aka Christmas Island) but it must be preordered well in advance.
Not too sure of lead in time. I would suggest that pilots prepay as well to hopefully be extra safe.


Note: there is still no Avgas in Pago Pago and on Easter Island.
