I'm really happy to see a taxi line there now, and also nice to see gate numbers. I hope this way we will not need to use a marshaller "follow me car" anymore. One good step forward for HSSS

More improvements at HSSS - Runway widening. This is happening on both sides. The widening is for the runway shoulders

Minister: Restructuring has Positive Effect on Economy and Aviation in Sudan



Quote:
Khartoum - Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) declared the separation of the regulatory body from the operational body to make sure international civil aviation standards are met.
Director General of CAA Mohammed Abdulaziz said the government announced the commencement of a new strategy called (3*3). This strategy aims at realizing growth in three stages in the span of three years; liberating air zones, developing airports, and operating them economically.
He added that these new changes are meant to achieve better performance and better efficiency levels.
He said celebrating this day is considered good planning on the part of the government and it reflects their desire to employ aviation as a sector in developing national economy.
"Sudan is at a crossroads between several regions; making laws and enforcing them leads to improving the quality of aviation as a whole." said the director.
He went on: "Due to signing a number of agreements; the air traffic and passenger movement have reached new better levels."
Minister of Defense on the other hand expressed hope that the restructuring will positively affect the economy as well as heighten the level of security in air operations and flights.
Representatives of ICAO, ministries, and airlines, and media took part in the celebration.

Frankfurt Airport Winter Timetable 2012/13


Quote:
FRA's Global Network Features 264 Passenger Destinations in 113 Countries -
Published: Friday, Oct. 26, 2012 - 3:43 am
FRANKFURT, Germany, October 26, 2012 -- /PRNewswire/ --

The Frankfurt Airport (FRA) Winter Timetable 2012/13, which goes into effect on Sunday, October 28, features a total of 264 passenger destinations worldwide, including 144 intercontinental destinations. Although there will be 11 destinations less than for last year's winter schedule, the number of countries linked to FRA will increase by 2 to 113. In particular, the FRA Winter Timetable 2012/13 offers new destinations to Asia. The Frankfurt-based leisure carrier Condor will be opening routes for the first time to Siem Reap (REP) in Cambodia, and to Rangoon (RGN) in Myanmar. Condor will also add Rio de Janeiro (SDU) in Brazil, and Cape Town (CPT) in South Africa, to its FRA network.

Deutsche Lufthansa will increase flight frequencies this winter on routes to Khartoum (KRT) in the Sudan, Addis Abeba (ADD) in Ethiopia, Doha (DOH) in Qatar, Bahrain (BAH), as well as America's Dallas (DFW), Colombia's capital of Bogota (BOG), and Brazil's Olympic city of Rio de Janeiro (GIG). The new Chinese route that Lufthansa introduced in the summer to Qingdao (TAO) via Shenyang (SHE) will continue this winter as well.

In European traffic, flights previously offered in last year's winter timetable by Cirrus (Germany), Malev (Hungary) and Spanair have been dropped due to the bankruptcy of these three airlines. In contrast, Poland's LOT will increase flight frequencies on its Frankfurt to Krakow route this winter.

The total number of departures per week registered this winter by FRA's passenger airlines will reach 3,980, which is down by about 4.6 percent year-on-year. However, intercontinental traffic remains constant and strong. The passenger load factor, relevant for passenger growth, is expected to rise again and exceed the 69.7 percent figure of the previous 2011 winter schedule.

In the cargo sector, the decline is slackening. The number of all-cargo flights for the FRA Winter Timetable 2012/13 will drop only slightly by 2.6 percent to 220 departures per week. Intercontinental cargo movements will grow by over three percent year-on-year, thus giving FRA more than a 60 percent share of intercontinental cargo flights in Germany. Frankfurt Airport will offer a total of 85 all-freighter cargo destinations in 47 countries, representing a modest increase over the previous year's winter schedule.

Commenting on the FRA's Winter Timetable 2012/13, Fraport AG's executive board chairman Dr. Stefan Schulte said: "The growth of air transportation is considered an indicator of the overall economic situation and, thus, is largely dependent on these developments. Although strong economic uncertainty in many European countries is dampening the growth in continental traffic, FRA is benefiting - as one of major hub airports worldwide - from its continuing strong position in the important intercontinental business."

Passengers and greeters can find FRA's latest schedule on the http://www.frankfurt-airport.com website (under "flights"). A PDF copy of our pocket Timetable brochure can be downloaded from this section, too. Furthermore, smartphone users can download the FRA Airport App for their appropriate operating system. This app contains the latest flight information as well as other useful tips to enhance your travel experience at Frankfurt Airport.

Sudan dreams big with new airports despite crashes


Wed Oct 31, 2012 10:00am EDT
Quote:
* String of aviation accidents in recent years

* U.S. embargo, FX shortage makes it hard to obtain parts

* But air transport is rare bright spot in struggling economy
* Authorities plan to build four new airports

* Reforms being made to supervision of industry

By Ulf Laessing

KHARTOUM, Oct 31 (Reuters) - After a Sudanese plane crashed at Khartoum's international airport last year, authorities didn't slow plans to build new airports and add more routes. They used the incident to shoot a video showing how safe flying in Sudan is, thanks to its skillful pilots.

"Tower, the wheels are jammed. What shall I do?" the pilot says in the film, replaying for the cameras how he circled for an hour above Khartoum to empty his fuel talks while workers flooded the runway with foam.

As news that the plane was in trouble spread around the city on Oct. 2 last year, hundreds of people rushed to the airport to watch anxiously as the ageing Fokker landed with its wheels up.

It turned on its side but all 45 passengers survived, the advertising video being produced by the civil aviation authority proudly states. A preliminary version of the film was seen by Reuters before its public release.

Sudan has been hit by a string of aviation accidents in the past several years; authorities have registered about 10 safety incidents in the last two years, airline experts told a workshop organised by the aviation authority last month.

In early October a Sudanese military plane crashed near Khartoum, killing 15 people. In August, 32 people including a government minister died when a civilian plane crashed in the south of the country. A Sudan Airways cargo plane crashed while taking off in the United Arab Emirates in 2009, and a cargo plane crashed shortly after take-off from Khartoum in 2008.

Sudan's airlines have struggled to obtain modern planes and spare parts because of a U.S. trade embargo, initially imposed in 1997 over the country's past hosting of militant Islamists, and a shortage of foreign exchange. Airbus, Boeing and most maintenance firms have refused to deal with the country.

But the aviation sector has nevertheless been growing strongly, a rare bright spot in an economy which has been ravaged by wars, ethnic conflicts and last year's separation from the country of South Sudan, which took much of Sudan's oil reserves when it became independent.

Passenger numbers have risen to 2.8 million annually from 1.8 million 2-1/2 years ago, said Mohammed Abdelaziz, head of the civil aviation authority.

"We expect more growth in coming years," he said, predicting that by 2023 Sudan would have 7 million passengers annually. An immediate fillip will come from a September deal with South Sudan to resume oil shipments through Sudanese territory and cross-border trade, a lifeline for both countries.

AIRPORTS

To serve its rising traffic, Sudan plans to build a new airport for Khartoum after its main trade partner China agreed to fund and execute a first construction phase costing $700 million, Abdelaziz said.

"Work will start at the beginning of next year," he said, adding that the remaining $600 million required would be raised through build-and-operate contracts, under which companies building the airport would be able to earn their fees from operating its facilities.

The new airport, designed for an annual capacity of 7 million passengers, is to be ready in three years.

The project, on the drawing board for many years, is overdue, and not just for capacity reasons. The current airport, built by British colonial rulers in the 1950s, has a short runway and lies in the heart of the capital, which is a risk for local residents given the accident
s.

"Foreign airlines have habitually complained the runway in the old airport is too short, a disadvantage that results in greater wear on tyres and brakes," said Magdi El Gizouli, a fellow at the Rift Valley Institute, a consultancy.

Much of Sudan's passenger growth comes from domestic carriers which lease used Airbus or Russian planes from other airlines to serve the vast country, where no passenger railway exists and trips by road can take days.

In addition to Khartoum, Sudan is building three airports including one at Wadi Halfa at the Egyptian border. The oil deal with South Sudan has reopened air traffic between the two nations, a big source of revenue for local airlines since South Sudan does not have its own carrier and has few paved roads.

"They make good money with cargo as it is much easier to transport goods to the South by air than on roads, especially in the rainy season," said Sheikh El-Din Abdallah, secretary general of the National Chamber of Air Transport, an industry body.

Three Sudanese carriers offer daily flights to the Southern capital Juba, which will also get a new airport courtesy of China.

Despite the rising traffic, local airlines struggle financially because they pay a premium for spare parts from the few firms dealing with Sudan.

"You get spare parts from firms in South Africa which charge you two times the market price or more," Abdallah said, adding that high taxes in Sudan were also a burden.

MUCH TO ENDURE

Passengers in Sudan have much to endure, not just crashes. To avoid operating losses, airlines often cancel flights on "technical grounds" if flights are not fully booked.

State-owned carrier Sudan Airways, known for its delays, has lost out to new carriers offering better service. Rival Marsland Aviation, which is privately owned, claims a 65 percent market share on domestic routes, according to its website.

Khartoum's airport has been in decay for years, with many passenger information systems and stairways out of service because of the country's shortage of dollars to buy spare parts.

The packed Sudan Airways workshop at Khartoum airport looks like a museum; broken-down planes queue outside, some of them stranded there for a year.

There are positive signs, however. Facing public outrage, officials have overhauled the civil aviation body by splitting off supervision in line with global standards. Passenger and baggage security checks have visibly improved in the past several months. Signs banning people not travelling from the Khartoum airport's passenger lounges have been put up in the past few weeks.

"Monitoring will now improve. They take civil aviation affairs more seriously," said Mohammed ******, Middle East head of the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

And Sudan Airways has noble traditions. One of Africa's oldest carriers, it used to fly to London and Frankfurt until the European Union banned it over its safety record. Sudanese pilots were once in high demand because of their experience, helping other Arab carriers to get started, before Sudan went into isolation in the 1990s as the U.S. embargo was imposed.

But the drive to strengthen the aviation sector comes as Sudan's links to the global airline network look increasingly shaky. Only about 14 foreign carriers fly to Khartoum, mostly from neighbouring Arab or African countries; Germany's Lufthansa and Dutch carrier KLM are the only Western airlines.

Some foreign carriers have halted or reduced flights because the government requires them to sell tickets in local currency, which they cannot easily convert into dollars because of exchange controls.

Most airlines have sharply raised ticket prices since Sudan devalued its pound this summer. New trouble looms as authorities plan to charge foreign firms in dollars for jet fuel.

"Foreign airlines don't really make much money here these days but could at least spend their pounds from ticket sales to fund the return trip," said a Western diplomat. "If this new policy gets enforced, then most will stop flying here."
