Message from Roland Szász :
Hello everybody,
My colleague and myself, we are planing an eastbound RTW in our PA46-350P, starting hopefully within the next two month. We hoped that everything is clear, than we got the information that there is no AVGAS on Christmas Island available any more. We tried to contact PLCH and KOIL… no answer.
Does somebody of you have a good contact or can help us with an information how to get 2 x 200 liter drums of AVGAS to PLCH.
Any information is highly appreciated.
Thank you for your help!

It looks the crossing of the Pacific (South and Central) is getting more and more difficult as Avgas is getting harder and harder to get. There is no Avgas on Easter Island (SCIP) and now Avgas is no longer available at Chrismas Island (PLCH).
Thank you to Mike Grey of White Rose Aviation for the latest update.
