Hawaiian Airlines interisland subsidiary to begin operations soon

by amit.uniyal 31. January 2014 08:35

Hawaiian Airlines, which launched its subsidiary Ohana by Hawaiian, to exclusively operate interisland flights has said that it expects that the new subsidiary will begin flight operations within a few weeks. This information was revealed by Mark Dunkerley, President and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines, while he was talking to mediapersons recently.

Dunkerley said that the fledgling turboprop subsidiary Ohana by Hawaiian, which has been launched by Hawaiian Airlines, could begin its flights operations between Honolulu and two of smallest islands in the State of Hawaii. He said that the service could begin as soon as a few weeks from now.

According to Dunkerley, the certification process of the airline is into the final stages which will be given by the Federal Aviation Administration. He said that the airline’s crew is currently engaged and working hard towards proving to the Federal Aviation Administration that the flights can be efficiently operated between the islands to their best satisfaction. He said that the airline’s crew ability to fly is one of the last steps in the certification process.

Hawaiian Airlines said that its subsidiary Ohana by Hawaiian has taken the delivery of its first ATR-42 aircraft in January this year. Hawaiian Airlines had earlier planned to launch its turboprop subsidiary Ohana by Hawaiian in summer 2013. However, the process of certification was delayed. The airline is now confident that the service may finally happen in a few weeks time and not several months. Upon approval that interisland subsidiary will be operating from Honolulu International Airport to Lanai Airport and Molokai Airport.

Revamped SFO Terminal 3 presents new look

by amit.uniyal 30. January 2014 10:40

If you might have traveled on American Airlines out of San Francisco International Airport’s Terminal 3, and ready to take another flight out of the airport then you are surely in for a surprise. You will be amazed to see the brand new Terminal 3. The old terminal looked something like this: a long corridor with 10 gates featuring a low, acoustic-tile ceiling with fluorescent lighting, rows of generic, black plastic-covered seats and black-and-white signs with gate numbers, and crowded newsstands and restaurants wedged between the gates. Now, all these have simply vanished, and a swanky, brand new terminal has taken its place visibly pleasing the air travelers.

John Martin, Director at San Francisco International Airport, said that the customers can now look forward to a lot of luxury perks that customers usually would not expect to find at an airport. He said that the revamped San Francisco International Airport terminal provides more amenities than before.

Martin said that the new Boarding Area E, also called Terminal 3E, is light, bright and ultramodern. The ceiling in the main corridor has now been increased 20 to 30 feet with scope for plenty of natural light. A 23-foot-tall picture window at the end of a walkway provides a panoramic view of the runways. The terminal looks even more picturesque with a dangling sculpture of giant metallic globes reflecting the sunset and bustle of the airport.

Singapore Airlines simplifying end-to-end travel process to UK

by amit.uniyal 29. January 2014 04:50

If you are traveling to the UK from Singapore, your end-to-end travel experience is about to be simplified and you will be able to fly as well as travel on rail on a single booking. Simple, isn’t it! Singapore Airlines has recently announced partnership with First Great Western and Heathrow Express to provide a simplified travel experience to those traveling to any of the destinations served by Singapore Airlines from London Heathrow on a single booking in the UK.

According to Singapore Airlines, this unique partnership has been formed to simplify the overall travel experience of the customers allowing them to travel to several cities in the south west of the UK to any of the destinations being currently served by Singapore Airlines from London Heathrow on a single booking. This tie-up among the three companies would be convenient for passengers as well since they would not be required to make three separate bookings and instead travel on a single ticket.

Singapore Airlines said that under this unique Rail-Fly partnership the customers who start their travel at any one of 11 railway stations in the UK would be able to travel as far as Brisbane in Australia on a single booking. For example, through this kind of booking a customer would be able to travel by rail with First Great Western to London Paddington from Bristol, catch the Heathrow Express service to London Heathrow, and finally take Singapore Airlines flight to Brisbane via Singapore Changi Airport – and that too, all on the same booking.

International air traffic to and from Africa growing at 6 percent

by amit.uniyal 28. January 2014 09:10

African air travel is heading for exciting years now. The African Airlines Association recently published its 2013 annual report and made public its latest findings. The study said that international air traffic to and from Africa has been considerably on the increase and had been growing at nearly 6 percent per year over the last decade. The report also presented an outlook about the domestic air traffic and indicated that it had expanded an average of 12 percent a year.

According to the report, air traffic has shown a strong growth particularly around Johannesburg (South Africa), Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) and Nairobi (Kenya). The growth had been impressive in these sectors. The report projected a positive outlook for African air travel and pointed out that the African continent provides a small sliver of global profits for various airlines.

Even Titus Naikuni, Chief Executive of Kenya Airways, echoes similar views as propounded by the African Airlines Association in its 2013 annual report. He said that Kenya Airways has also predicted exciting couple of years for air travel in Africa. He said that the airline is fast expanding its network and strengthening its fleet. The airline has several expansion plans for future. This includes acquiring of new Boeing Dreamliner aircrafts, opening of a new terminal at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and launch of first direct flights to the United States from Kenya. Kenya Airways is expected to receive the first of its six Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircrafts in April this year.

by amit.uniyal 23. January 2014 07:08

Austrian Airlines has announced that it would once again start flying to Tehran. The European airline is all set to commence flights to the Iranian capital from March 11, 2014. The airline has terminated service to the city owing to financial sanctions and fluctuations in the currency.

Ryan Air to cease service between Milan and Rome

by amit.uniyal 21. January 2014 09:59

Ryan Air is a tough player. The low cost budget carrier of Ireland is one that does not concede defeat easily. However, the airline admitted to one very recently. Shocking and bizarre as it seems, the airline, which offers low cost flights to over 170 destinations across Europe, did actually bow down to speed!

The airline’s business philosophy is to offer no frills service between different European cities that helps it keep costs low and pass on the benefits in terms of affordable ticket prices to its customers. Like any of its service, the airline flies between Milan and Rome. It seems that it accepted a speed challenge with a train operating service on the same route. On an average, it takes about one hour and six minutes to fly between the city pair. Ryan Air has always believed in the viability of this route and hence has operated flights. However, it was in for a rude shock when two high-speed rail firms made it realize otherwise. At present, it connects Milan Orio al Serio Airport with Rome Ciampino Airport and it has decided to terminate this service from the end of March this year.

The high-speed train journey takes a little over three hours and fifteen minutes. Considering the fact that the time taken, distance covered, and prices offered by these trains are a better option for the passengers to commute than book air tickets, it has taken a back seat. Both the trains provide a fast and affordable mode of plying between the two cities, giving passengers yet another avenue to reach their destination at lowest possible rates.
