It seems that Royal Air Maroc will go to DFW !



Moroccan ministery of transport went at Dallas last march for an agreement between DFW and CMN (Casablanca) airports with the opening of a line, and now they are going to sign for Royal Air Maroc opening.

The move will pave the way for a direct Dallas-Casablanca service by Royal Air Maroc. That will please Texas oil men who are increasingly ...

Dallas News: American Airlines plans to fly from Dallas/Fort Worth to Beijing

Quote:
UPDATE, with information from American Airlines’ filing with the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Terry Maxon/DMN

American Airlines plans to begin nonstop service May 7, 2015, from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Beijing, it said Thursday.

The route would be the third DFW-China route that American has launched within 12 months. It began flights from D/FW Airport to Shanghai on the mainland and to Hong Kong in June.

“By adding this new Beijing service, American will achieve a significant milestone in the development of its Asian network by offering nonstop service from Dallas/Fort Worth to five key markets in Asia -Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo,” American’s chief marketing officer, Andrew Nocella, said in American’s release.

“The pending addition of Beijing and recent additions of Shanghai and Hong Kong elevate Dallas/Fort Worth to one of the primary connecting hubs between Asia and destinations within the U.S. as well as Mexico, Central and South America,” he said.

American asked the U.S. Department of Transportation for permission to fly the route since the air service treaty between the United States and China limits the number of weekly flights allowed.

However, not all frequencies are being used, and American expects no problem getting the required permission.

“Sufficient frequencies are available to accommodate American Airlines’ proposed service,” American said in the DOT filing. “As of June 13, 2014, the Department noted that 124 out of 161 China [weekly] frequencies are allocated, leaving 37 frequencies available for immediate allocation.”

American said it would use a Boeing 777-200ER, the same model being used on the DFW-Shanghai route, to operate the DFW-Beijing route.

With the DFW-Beijing route’s start, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport will have five routes to Asia. American has flown for 27 years to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport, and it began flying to Seoul, South Korea, in 2013.

The D/FW flights to Beijing will give American a second gateway to China’s capital. It has flown to Beijing from its Chicago O’Hare hub since 2010.

We raised the question of DFW-Beijing service in June as American was preparing to launch its Shanghai and Hong Kong routes. Nocella said then he would expect that American would want to launch a Beijing route “within the next two or three years.”

We also asked Sean Donohue, Dallas/Fort Worth Airport’s CEO, about the possibility of a DFW-Beijing route. His answer was that he wasn’t aware of anything in the near future.

“But fair to say, the obvious next choice would be Beijing. We’ve been working hard, talking to multiple carriers that would be interested in that,” Donohue said last June. “Obviously, we’d be more than interested if American was looking at it, but I don’t see anything imminent. However, more service to China is clearly on our priority list.”

AA officials had said in June that a hurdle on starting DFW-Beijing service would be to get acceptable takeoff and landing slots at Beijing Capital International Airport. If American’s proposed schedule in the application is approved, it appears the carrier had excellent times in Beijing.

Sort of off topic but in the wake of the recent Ebola outbreak, some Texas politicians are lobbying the federal government to implement Ebola screening procedures at DFW and IAH.

Dallas News: Cornyn, McCaul want Ebola screening at D/FW and Houston IAH, too

Quote:
By Todd J. Gillman
[email protected]
10:24 am on October 10, 2014

WASHINGTON – Ahead of today’s first congressional hearing on the response to Ebola’s arrival in Texas, top lawmakers are prodding the government to add the state’s busiest airports to the list of those screening passengers arriving from West Africa.

Sen. John Cornyn and House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Austin, issued the demand in a letter to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske. They ask that Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport be included in the new screening procedures.

Those procedures apply only to the five airports that account for 94 percent of passengers arriving from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea: John F. Kennedy in New York, Newark, Chicago O’Hare, Atlanta, and Washington Dulles. Dulles is where Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian who died in Dallas on Wednesday of Ebola, arrived from Brussels before heading to DFW.

On Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Homeland Security announced fever checks and questioning for travel history for anyone from the Ebola-affected countries. About 150 such people arrive each day in the United States, officials say.

Only Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone are deeply affected, and there are no direct flights between those countries and the US.

Other countries in the region, like Nigeria and Senegal, have managed to prevent the outbreak from spreading to their countries.

People arriving in the US from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone do so indirectly (they catch a connecting flight somewhere else).

They should ban all flights from those countries to anywhere else.

Contrary to what the media makes it sound like, the situation is not out of control.

Yeah the media panic is ridiculous considering that only two people so far (ie hospital workers who had direct contact with the patient) were infected with Ebola.

You might be right. But wouldn't you want to take precautions? The UN's own numbers are forecasting over 1 million infected by year end. I actually think the media is whitewashing the threat.

You have to remember though, the reason why Sierra Leone and Liberia have been severely affected by the outbreak is because the quality of their healthcare system and sanitation system is very poor. For example many people will go to the bathroom openly in the street there, and it is also a custom there for relatives to handle and prepare the deceased person for burial. With those conditions it would make more sense that Ebola would be considered a threat there, but none of those conditions exist in the US or any other developed country, which is why Ebola isn't much of a threat.

On the contrary, most mass media are sensationalist, and the ebola outbreak is an excellent diversion from issues in which media conglomerates have interests (like the arms industry).

Additionally, Liberia and Sierrea Leone have been ravaged by war and they don't even have the minimal basic infrastructure to prevent the outbreak. This is why other countries in the region, like Nigeria and Senegal, are so far managing to prevent it.

From today, you can also discuss developments found at Dallas-Love Field Airport (DAL), a fast-growing airport that carries Southwest and Virgin America, among other carriers.

Looks like you're right:

I guess AA will just focus on connecting GIG to the US via MIA and JFK.
