Air Canada reveals new 787 interior

Quote
Air Canada’s new Boeing 787-8s will feature three cabins with 251 seats, the carrier revealed today.

The aircraft will be divided into international business class, premium economy and economy cabins in a colour scheme based on grey and neutral colours accented with red and blue.

The new interior product will be featured on Air Canada's 787-8s entering the fleet in 2014 and the larger 787-9s that it will start to receive in 2015. Seating capacity for the latter variant has not yet been revealed.

The international business class cabin on the 787-8 will feature 20 “executive pods” with B/E Aerospace lie-flat seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. The seats feature headrests with pneumatic cushions and a massaging function and will offer aisle access.



Each business class pod will include an 18in screen with touch handsets for Panasonic Avionics' inflight entertainment system, as well as USB and universal power outlets.



Air Canada’s premium economy cabin on the 787-8 will be outfitted with 21 Recaro seats in a 2-3-2 configuration with a 38in pitch. The seats measure 19.5in wide and provide 7in of recline.



The premium economy seats will have 9in or 11in touchscreens for inflight entertainment and power. Air Canada will offer extra perks for premium economy passengers for meals and beverage service as well as priority check-in and baggage delivery.

The economy cabin is configured with 210 slimline B/E Aerospace seats in a 3-3-3 configuration, with a 31in pitch. Economy passengers will have 9in touchscreens for IFE and in-seat power.



Air Canada has not yet detailed the specifications for seat capacity on the larger 787-9 aircraft that it will start adding to the fleet a year after the first 787-8 delivery.

Air Canada will start receiving 37 787s in the first half of 2014, with the first of 15 787-8 aircraft entering service in July. The order also consists of 22 larger 787-9s, which will start entering the fleet in July 2015. The carrier plans to receive all of the aircraft by the end of 2019.

"We are very excited to introduce completely re-designed seating and cabin amenities that will offer Air Canada customers the very best in comfort and contemporary design," said Ben Smith, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer of the Montreal-based airline. "With the arrival next spring of our first Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Air Canada continues to renew its international widebody fleet with the next generation of modern and fuel efficient aircraft.”

Etihad Airways din Abu Dhabi negociază preluarea unei participaţii de până la 49% din Alitalia

Quote
[...]

Cele două companii au discutat în ultimele luni preluarea de către Etihad a unei participaţii variind între 30% şi 49% la Alitalia şi o injecţie de capital de până la 350 de milioane de euro, au declarat surse apropiate situaţiei.

[...]

Alitalia încearcă să evite, pentru a doua oară în cinci ani, falimentul, din cauza concurenţei dure din partea operatorilor low-cost şi a preţurilor ridicate la combustibil.

Compania italiană a încercat sfără succes să găsească un nou partener după ce Air France, în prezent cel mai mare acţionar, cu 25% din titluri, a anunţat că nu va participa la o majorare de capital de 300 de milioane de euro, întrucât operatorul francez este nemulţumit de planul de restructurare adoptat.

Air France-KLM To Sell CityJet

Quote
Air France-KLM said it had received a firm offer from Germany's Intro Aviation to purchase its CityJet regional airline as well as its subsidiary VLM.

Financial terms for the deal were not disclosed. Air France-KLM said in a statement it expected the transaction to close in the first quarter of 2014.

Intro Aviation, founded in 1973 and based near Nuremberg, acquired German airline Deutsche BA from British Airways - now part of IAG - for one euro in 2003.

The airline was renamed DBA and then sold to Air Berlin, Germany's No. 2 airline, in 2006. The same year, Intro Aviation took a majority stake in Germany's LTU group before selling the rehabilitated carrier to Air Berlin in 2007.

Dublin-based CityJet, the No. 1 carrier at London City Airport, has a fleet of 38 aircraft and offers more than 480 weekly flights across Europe.

Noutăți în călătoria cu avionul. Pasagerii vor putea vorbi la telefon şi naviga pe internet

Quote
Anul 2014 va aduce schimbări spectaculoase pentru confortul celor care călătoresc cu avionul. Unele sunt în avantajul pasagerilor, dar altele s-ar putea să îi nemulţumească. De exemplu, călătorii din Statele Unite vor putea vorbi la telefon sau naviga pe internet, dar vor avea spaţiu mai mic între scaune şi vor plăti taxe mai mari.

Dinn 2014, călătoriile cu avionul vor fi mai confortabile din anumite puncte de vedere. Pasagerii curselor comerciale vor avea acces la facilităţi care nu existau până acum pentru avioanele de linie. Astfel, la bordul unor aeronave va fi disponibil internetul wireless, iar pasagerii îşi vor putea încărca telefoanele, laptopurile sau tabletele în avion. Există însă şi o parte negativă - scaunele vor fi mai înguste cu aproape doi centimetri.

În schimb, la clasa bussiness, pasagerii vor beneficia de acelaşi confort care există şi acum, fără a fi efectuate modificări spaţiu. În schimb, vor apărea câteva schimbări substanţiale în transport şi în modalitatea de taxare.

O companie norvegiană şi una islandeză vor să introducă zboruri din Europa în America mai ieftine decât cele din prezent. Dar companiile aeriene vor să impună taxe mai mari pentru schimbarea biletelor. O noutate este şi faptul că bagajele vor putea fi etichetate încă de acasă, pentru a se preveni aglomeraţia din aeroporturi.

În Statele Unite, pasagerii îşi vor putea face check-in printr-un program special, astfel încât nu vor mai trebui să se descalţe şi să îşi pună deoparte accesoriile şi aparatele electronice la controlul de securitate.

SIA and Air New Zealand announce major alliance

Quote
Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand have entered an agreement that will see capacity between their two countries grow by 30% and extensive codesharing between the pair.

Under the proposed alliance, Singapore Airlines would upgauge one of its daily Singapore-Auckland services to an Airbus A380 aircraft from the Boeing 777-300ER it now uses on the route, says the carrier in a statement.

Air New Zealand would take over five of SIA’s weekly Auckland-Singapore services using its recently re-fitted 777-200ERs. It would also add two additional flights, giving ANZ daily services to Singapore.

The deal is subject to regulatory approvals, but the two Star Alliance carriers hope to eventually increase capacity between Singapore and New Zealand by up to 30% annually.

Under the proposed deal, Air New Zealand will be able to place its code on SIA and Silkair flights originating from Singapore, while SIA will be able to place its code on Air New Zealand's domestic flights out of Auckland as well as “selected international destinations.”

Brussels Airlines announces major European network expansion

Quote
Brussels Airlines strengthens its market position and will start the summer season with lots of new destinations, additional aircraft and invests in service innovations.

During a press conference today Brussels Airlines CEO Bernard Gustin revealed the new commercial strategy of Brussels Airlines. In recent months, the airline has been working hard on the improvement of its productivity and decreased by 10 percent its cost structure. At the same time the company invested heavily in service and comfort for its passengers. The efforts led to a significant passenger growth, increased passenger satisfaction and improved profitability. This has allowed the company to invest in the expansion of its network. This spring and summer several new routes will be added to the Brussels Airlines schedule. Therefore two additional Airbus A319 aircraft will be added to the fleet over the following months.

In total nine new summer destinations were announced today, as well as two new year-round destinations. It is the largest network expansion in the history of the company. With Ajaccio, Athens, Bari, Bastia, Cagliari, Figari, Malta, Montpellier and Seville, the airline is adding popular summer holiday destinations to its portfolio. The new year-round services to Krakow and Warsaw illustrate a strong investment in the Polish market. The flight frequencies to several existing destinations (Florence, Palermo, Marseille, Catania and Madrid) will also be increased, which results in a total of 400,000 additional seats offered in 2014.

Alitalia, Etihad Meet Banks As Due Diligence Intensifies

Quote
Etihad Airways and Alitalia's creditors have held talks ahead of a potential investment in the troubled Italian carrier by the Abu Dhabi-based group, the chief executive of Italy's UniCredit bank said on Friday.

Alitalia's debt and additional cost cuts are likely to be the main topics of negotiations between the two airlines which said they were in the final phase of due diligence for a possible investment that could help make Alitalia profitable again.

UniCredit CEO Federico Ghizzoni said meetings with banks and the airlines had already happened in Rome this week.

"I'm pretty confident that a solution will be found," Ghizzoni told journalists on the sidelines of an event in Verona.

Asked if debt restructuring was on the agenda of the meetings, Ghizzoni said: "We are not talking about debt restructuring, but how to move forward the relationship with the banks in case Etihad becomes an Alitalia shareholder."

The banks exposed to Alitalia's debt include UniCredit, Intesa Sanpaolo, Monte dei Paschi di Siena and Banca Popolare di Sondrio.

Qatar to take first A380s in June, plans Farnborough extravaganza

Quote
Qatar Airways has pushed back its Airbus A380 deliveries to the middle of this year to coincide with the opening of the new Doha airport. Meanwhile the airline is aiming to steal the limelight at this year’s Farnborough air show by displaying no less than four airliners including an A380, an A320, an A350, and a 787.

“We will receive our first three A380s in June, which were supposed to be delivered in April, May and June,” says Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker. “This delay is due to the opening of Doha’s new Hamad International Airport.”





Qatar Airways will bring its first A380 to the Farnborough air show in July, where it will also display a Boeing 787-8 and a sharklet-equipped A320. Al Baker says the airline’s line-up will be completed by Airbus displaying A350-900 MSN4 adorned in a hybrid scheme with Qatar Airways titles and branding.

The opening of the new airport – which has been delayed by over a year due to wrangles over completion contracts with suppliers - is expected to take place in the coming months.
