Airbus launches the A330neo

Airbus launches the A330neo

4109Following a decision by the Board of Directors of the Group, Airbus has launched the 
A330-800neo and A330-900neo, two new members of its Widebody Family, which will incorporate latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, aerodynamic enhancements and new cabin features. Benefitting from the unbeatable economics, versatility and high reliability of the A330, the A330neo reduces fuel consumption by 14% per seat, making it the most cost efficient, medium range Widebody aircraft on the market. In addition to greater fuel savings, A330neo operators will benefit from a range increase of up to 400 nautical miles and all the operational commonality advantages of the Airbus Family. Deliveries of the A330neo will start in Q4 2017.

“The A330 is a very important margin contributor for our Group. It’s also one of the most reliable and efficient commercial aircraft ever. Customers love it. With our decision to re-engine the plane, we will keep the A330 flying high for many more years to come. The development costs for the A330neo will be incurred from 2015 to 2017 with an impact of around -70 basis points on Airbus Group’s 2015 Return on Sales target. However, we have a very good business case and the A330neo, once in service, will continue to significantly contribute to our group’s earnings,” said Tom Enders, CEO of Airbus Group.

“The A330neo is the logical evolution of our reliable and versatile A330 Family. It provides an optimal solution for airlines around the world looking to minimise their fuel and operating costs while offering best-in-class comfort to their passengers,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO. “We see strong market potential for the A330neo, and like its market-leading smaller sister, the A320neo, we are confident this new aircraft will be a success in the medium-haul segment. We are again leveraging a proven aircraft with a wide operator base and making it even more efficient with the latest innovations and technology developments.”

In addition to the new Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, the A330neo will feature incremental innovations, including aerodynamic enhancements such as new A350 XWB inspired winglets, an increased wing span and new engine pylons. Pilots will benefit from latest generation cockpit systems, and the already very comfortable A330 cabin will be further optimised to offer up to ten additional 18 inch wide seats. Passengers are winners too, as they will be able to enjoy a 21st century on-board experience with for example, fourth generation In Flight Entertainment (3D films), mood-lighting and full connectivity.

GOOGLE GLASS AT COPENHAGEN AIRPORT – SERVICE WITH A SMILE

GOOGLE GLASS AT COPENHAGEN AIRPORT – SERVICE WITH A SMILE

4227Copenhagen Airport has given Google Glass the “thumbs up” following a successful trial by its passenger services team. Working with SITA Lab, the technology research group at SITA, Copenhagen Airport is the first airport in the world to trial Google Glass. Results from both passengers and the airport service team have been positive, with the innovative technology enabling superior passenger service.

Marie-Louise Lotz, Director Customer Care, Copenhagen Airport, said: “The feedback from our passengers and service team has been overwhelmingly positive. We found Google Glass very easy to use and more user-friendly than other devices such as tablets. We can reduce the amount of paper our Duty Managers need to carry to give great customer service, such as duty rosters, desk allocation sheets, peak prognosis, passenger numbers and cruise arrivals. And because the devices are hands-free, our managers are not focusing on a screen and can engage better with our passengers.”

The team also noted that having access to services like Google Translate and gate, baggage or flight information would help them improve the dialogue with passengers. Sharing information with other colleagues on duty by using the camera for documentation purposes and publishing photos on a closed work forum promotes instant interaction between Duty Managers.

Speaking at the Air Transport IT Summit in Brussels, Jim Peters, Chief Technology Officer, SITA, said: “SITA has led the way with airlines and airports in the trials of wearable technology, including Google Glass. The killer benefit is that this technology is hands-free and enables a new way of working. At Copenhagen Airport we have seen real benefits for both passengers and service staff. From an operational point of view, the ease of adoption and the user-friendliness of the Glass devices are great – it only takes a day for staff to familiarize themselves with the new equipment.”

There are, however, still some technical issues to iron out.

Peters commented: “The devices need improved scanning capability, battery life and reduced heating during operation. But the potential for widespread usage in the air transport industry is great. SITA will continue testing and researching the best ways for this innovative technology to be embraced by airports and airlines.”

When it comes to reactions from passengers, there were two main groups at Copenhagen. Younger people were excited and keen to see how they too could use the technology. In contrast, the older age group did not notice the devices and when the Glass was demonstrated to them they were pleasantly surprised by the added benefits the service team was able to deliver.

Christian Poulsen, CIO & VP Assets & Technology, Copenhagen Airport, said: “Copenhagen Airport is always looking for ways to use innovative technologies to make the visit to our airport the best possible experience for passengers. This pilot was very promising, and we are now investigating how we could efficiently introduce wearable technology to our passenger services team.”

Copenhagen Airport has a vision to make it the “The Gateway of Northern Europe,” and the team is focusing on extraordinary customer experiences, competitiveness and efficient operations. Embracing new technologies and innovation to have ground-breaking passenger services is part of this strategy. The Google Glass project builds on established services at the airport including common-use check-in, self-service bag drop and self-service boarding gates.

SITA, as the only IT provider completely dedicated to the air transport industry, is leading the innovation for wearable technology for airports and airlines. In 2013, its strategic technology research group, SITA Lab, began testing and comparing wearable technology devices and developing applications for airlines and airports. A paper outlining its findings for the industry is available here. Earlier this year, SITA Lab received a Smart Technology Award from The Wearables 2014, the leading awards for wearable technology. This recognized the pioneering pilot, which tested how Google Glass and Sony Smartwatches could enhance the passenger experience with an airline.

The winning team will receive €30,000 (approx. US$40,000) and have the chance to work with Airbus innovators to develop their ideas further.

With some 500 patents filed every year and partnerships with prestigious universities around the world, Airbus is a leading aircraft manufacturer and a global innovation catalyst. Airbus believes that an open mind set and collaboration drives greater innovation, which is key to ensuring business performance and securing a bright future for air travel.

Abu Dhabi Airports to co-host 134th IATA Slots conference

4131Abu Dhabi Airports, along with Abu Dhabi Convention Bureau, and Etihad Airways will host 1000 delegates from over 200 airlines and airports at this year’s 134th IATA Slots Conference taking place from the 10th – 12th June at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

The IATA Slots Conference - a voluntary assembly of IATA and non-IATA airlines - is one of the largest gatherings in the International Airport Transport Association’s (IATA) calendar. The goal of the conference is for airlines and airports to secure the slots that will give them the best possible schedule to offer their customers.

As one of IATA’s largest events, representatives of over 60 schedules-facilitated or fully coordinated airports convene at this semi-annual meeting to secure their slots for the following year. As Abu Dhabi prepares to welcome the delegates, the hosts have estimated the conference will deliver a direct economic impact of AED4.8 million (US $1.3 million) to the emirate.

H.E. Ali Majed Al Mansoori, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “Abu Dhabi Airports is honored to co-host this conference which brings together major regional and international aviation industry players. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase the investment in and progress towards Abu Dhabi’s aviation infrastructure. In fact, guests at our conference will fly over the centerpiece of Abu Dhabi Airports’ multibillion-dollar investment program - the Midfield Terminal Building (MTB) - which will open in July 2017 providing a full terminal building, passenger and cargo facilities, and world class duty-free shops and restaurants. The terminal will have capacity to handle 30 million passengers per year, and up to 8,500 passengers per hour.”

H.E. added: “Abu Dhabi is a natural location for large-scale events such as this. A true destination of distinction, the emirate is developing at a significant rate providing a stable, safe environment with a unique mix of local heritage and international influences. In Addition, with Abu Dhabi International Airport registering double digit growth in passenger numbers year-on-year, there is a clear need for a world-class aviation hub here in the capital to meet this demand. “

Abu Dhabi Airports tonight will host a glittering gala dinner during the conference, with a variety of locally-grown entertainment on offer to delight guests, giving them a unique Emirati experience. A three day Airport Slots & Scheduling Training Course was offered prior to the start of the conference.

Peter Stanton, Head of Worldwide Airport Slots, IATA, said: “IATA is delighted to be bringing the 134th IATA Slots Conference to the Middle East and in particular to Abu Dhabi for the first time in its 65 year history. Abu Dhabi Airports has been absolutely instrumental in bidding for the conference and we are extremely grateful for their generous support and sponsorship of the Gala dinner which I’m sure all delegates found memorable.”

Qatar Airways introduces mobile technology for pilots

Qatar Airways introduces mobile technology for pilots

424Qatar Airways has started the roll out of QLOUD, an internally developed mobility application for iPads, which will provide real-time and decision-relevant information to the airline’s pilots. More than 500 pilots have already embraced the new technology, with 500 more set to begin using QLOUD over the next few weeks. All of Qatar Airways’ 2500 pilots are expected to use the QLOUD system by September this year.

Qatar Airways has been innovatively using mobility technology in its various business functions for more than three years, ensuring that its workforce, whether on the ground or in air, are able to retrieve decision-relevant information in real time and, in turn, improve operational efficiency and enhance customer service.

QLOUD allows pilots to check-in for duty and retrieve important pre-flight information, such as their schedules, flight plans, maps, weather information, details of the crew they are flying with, hotel and destination information and dispatch briefs. This information can be accessed at a time and place of their convenience ahead of departure.

Qatar Airways’ CEO, Akbar Al Baker, says: “We are continually investing in mobile technology as a means to provide our workforce with real-time information, when required. Qatar Airways has always been, and continues to be, at the forefront of implementing technology for the purposes of increasing workforce productivity and efficiency, as well as enhancing customer service. We have already rolled out an internally developed iPad-based mobility application, called QRUISE, for our cabin crew that has been extremely successful.”

QLOUD also provides pilots with easy access to operational documentation. Hard copies of flight operational manuals and regulatory documentation, which can easily run into thousands of pages, will become obsolete, as soft copies will be made available through apps. Updates to these documents will be completed automatically by distributing relevant operational manuals and updates to all of the pilots through QLOUD programming, which includes acknowledgments of receipt from them. In addition, all paper-based forms, which were being filled out manually by pilots, have been replaced with electronic forms.

QLOUD also aids pilots in scheduling their training sessions, keeping track of their certifications and fully supports e-learning. The platform provides easy access to all corporate applications required by pilots, including emails, thereby offering everything that the crew community needs on a single device.

With aviation authorities approving iPads for use in aircraft decks, Qatar Airways intends to enhance QLOUD to supplement and support the on-board electronic flight bag technology.

Over the next few months, the airline’s network will add more destinations, including Philadelphia, USA (April 2), Larnaca, Cyprus (April 29), Istanbul, Turkey (May 22), Edinburgh, Scotland (May 28), Miami, USA (June 10), Haneda, Japan (June 18) and Dallas/Fort Worth, USA (July 1).

Singapore Airlines and Turkish Airlines to expand codeshare agreement

Singapore Airlines and Turkish Airlines to expand codeshare agreement

4118Singapore Airlines and Turkish Airlines have agreed a major expansion of codeshare ties, covering destinations beyond both Istanbul and Singapore.

The Star Alliance partners have been codesharing on each other’s flights on the route Istanbul-Singapore-and vice versa since February 2009. Singapore Airlines currently operates four weekly flights on the mentioned route, increasing frequency on a seasonal basis to six times per week to meet growth in demand, effective from 30 May 2014.

The expanded codeshare ties are expected to take effect from 1 May 2014, subject to regulatory approvals.

“This significant expansion of our partnership with Turkish Airlines, together with our increase in frequency to Istanbul, is in line with ongoing efforts to expand our network reach and to offer customers more travel options. This partnership is another example of how we can jointly do more together than we could each do on our own,” said Singapore Airlines Executive Vice President Commercial, Mr Mak Swee Wah.

“We are glad to expand the current codeshare agreement with Singapore Airlines, a recognised member of Star Alliance. This expansion will serve as an example of Turkish Airlines’ target to maximise the travel opportunities offered to passengers through the extensive networks of both airlines. Turkish Airlines having placed an order of wide body aircrafts considering the crucial importance of the Asian market is highly appreciating its partnership with Singapore Airlines on a win-win basis since Singapore is a strategic market in Asia. With this cooperation we will have the opportunity to transfer our passengers to destinations in Australia, New Zeeland and South East Asia via Singapore by connecting our networks.  Reciprocally, Singapore Airlines will have the increased chance to transfer its passengers to Africa, Europe, the Middle East and North America via our hub in Istanbul. ” said Ahmet Bolat, Turkish Airlines Chief Investment and Technology Officer.
