Eleven million use Abu Dhabi airport in 2010
23 January 2011
AFP

Abu Dhabi Airports Company said on Sunday that the number of passengers using the airport of the capital increased 12.2 percent last year to nearly 11 million.

Air cargo also grew 16 percent in 2010 to 438,000 tonnes, it said in a statement carried by WAM state news agency.

The chief of ADAC, James Bennett, said the growth was "well above the world airports average growth."

The company said that the routes to London, Bangkok, Doha, Manila and Cairo continued to be the top five in 2010, collectively claiming 20 percent of the total passenger traffic.

Abu Dhabi airport is the hub of Etihad Airways, the national-flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates.

Boeing, Qatar Airways, Americares Partner for Relief Flight
22 January 2011
Journal of Transportation

2011 JAN 22 - (VerticalNews.com) -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) again has partnered with Qatar Airways and the non-profit global health and disaster relief organization AmeriCares to deliver a second consignment of relief supplies to areas in Pakistan that are still recovering from the massive floods that ravaged the country in August. The first shipment was delivered in September 2010.

A consignment of about 35,000 pounds (15.8 metric tones) of medical supplies was loaded into the cargo hold of the new Boeing 777-300ER (extended range) delivered to Qatar Airways. The airline subsequently will ship the relief goods from Doha, Qatar to Pakistan.

"This is the second time in four months that Boeing has partnered with Qatar Airways and AmeriCares to help the people in Pakistan where the need is still great," said Liz Warman, director of Global Corporate Citizenship Northwest Region, Boeing. "Providing timely medical care is critical; though the floods have receded, the aftereffects such as sickness and disease continue to affect the people in these disaster zones."

Over the years, Boeing and airline partners as well as non-profit partners in the Humanitarian Delivery Flights (HDF) program have collaborated on many humanitarian missions and the Boeing 777-300ER was used on a number of those missions.

This article was prepared by Journal of Transportation editors from staff and other reports.

Fighter jets accompany diverted plane after passenger’s ‘threats’
25 January 2011
The Herald

A PASSENGER plane bound for London’s Heathrow Airport has been diverted under fighter jet escort after a man began making threats on board.

The flight from Abu Dhabi was redirected to Stansted after the pilot reported a disruptive passenger. Essex Police said a 37-year-old British man was arrested after the plane landed.

Two RAF Typhoon jets were scrambled to accompany the aircraft before it landed at Stansted shortly before midday yesterday.

A police spokeswoman said: “A 37-year-old man, a British national, has been arrested after an incident on board an Etihad Airways plane travelling from Abu Dhabi to Heathrow.

“The pilot reported a passenger causing disruption and making threats. The plane was diverted to Stansted Airport where it landed just before midday. No-one has been injured and the airport has been operating normally.”

A spokeswoman for the United Arab Emirates-based airline said: “The flight was diverted from Heathrow to Stansted. This was done to offload a disruptive passenger.

“It was a question of inappropriate comments made on the flight and a disruptive passenger. There was no threat to the safety of the aircraft or the passengers.”

Aussie in court for bomb hoax
27 January 2011
The Advertiser

A DRUNKEN Australian blamed nerves for causing a bomb hoax that sparked terror fears over British skies.

James Glen, 37, was travelling from Melbourne to London on Monday when he told air stewards that fellow passenger Ali Ghazansar was armed with a gun and was carrying a bomb which he had threatened to detonate unless Glen handed over $32,000.

Two Typhoon fighter jets were scrambled to escort the Etihad Airways A340 airbus, with 163 passengers and 15 crew, in to land at Stansted airport.

Appearing before Chelmsford Magistrates Court in Essex yesterday, Glen pleaded guilty to making a hoax bomb threat. Glen was ``intoxicated'' and ``anxious'' about the flight, according to his lawyers.

He was refused bail and remanded in custody to appear on March 10 when he is expected to be sentenced.

UAE extends hand to Tories – via Liberals
Foreign Minister would welcome Canadian invitation to discuss rift, Grit MP says, despite being ‘insulted' by recent Harper comments
28 January 2011
The Globe and Mail

OTTAWA and MONTREAL -- The United Arab Emirates is offering an olive branch of sorts to Canada, with its Foreign Minister signalling he's ready to fly here in an effort to resolve a deepening feud between the two countries.

Sheik Abdullah Bin Zayed al-Nahyan relayed this message through Liberal finance critic Scott Brison during a meeting on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

He stressed, however, that the Harper Conservatives would first have to extend an invitation.

What started as a dispute over additional landing rights at Toronto's Pearson airport for UAE airlines has led to Canada's loss of a key Mideast military base, a breakdown in relations between once-staunch allies and growing fears that trade may suffer.

Mr. Brison, who initiated the meeting, said Mr. al-Nahyan told him that he was “very hurt” and “quite insulted” by Prime Minister Stephen Harper's “most recent public statements.”

He was referring to an interview Mr. Harper gave to Sun Media in which he suggested the UAE – which contributed troops to the conflict in Afghanistan – was using Canada's fight against terrorism to gain a commercial advantage for two UAE airlines.

“But the minister clearly has great respect for Canada,” Mr. Brison told The Globe and Mail in a telephone interview from Davos. “He bears absolutely no grudge toward Canada and said that he would like to come to Canada if he were invited by a government.”

The Harper government said Thursday night it would be receptive to a tęte-ŕ-tęte with the UAE if it received an offer directly from the Arab government. But it was adamant that it would not tolerate the negotiating position last taken by the UAE.

“Canada could not accept that a commercial request for landing rights in Toronto was linked to use of Camp Mirage to support our efforts in Afghanistan,” said Melissa Lantsman, spokeswoman for Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon. “We have not been contacted regarding a possible meeting, but we would welcome such a request if it came from Mr. al-Nahyan.”

The Conservatives also noted it was odd for the UAE to make an appeal through an opposition MP when two Tory cabinet ministers were also at the Davos meeting. “When a meeting with the government is requested, it's generally made to the government and not to members of the opposition,” Ms. Lantsman said.

Sending messages to the Harper Tories through their political rivals may not be the best route to peace for the UAE, which has recently gone out of its way to irritate Ottawa. It kicked Canadian soldiers off a Dubai-area base that Ottawa has used for nearly a decade as a staging ground for the Afghanistan war, forcing a relocation costing $300-million. Then, in December, the UAE slapped hefty and confusing visa requirements on Canadian visitors.

The fallout from the dispute with Canada's largest export market in the Mideast continues to snare Canadian business travellers.

A Toronto man says he found himself stuck at the Dubai airport earlier this month until he agreed to rent a hotel room as a condition of getting quick access to an entry visa. Jack Kumar, a Torontonian who works for an oil-field services company, said UAE officials treated him like an outlaw and the experience “left a bitter taste in my mouth.”

Mr. Kumar, who visits the UAE three or four times a year, warned snafus caused by the new visa slapped on Canadians will hurt sales to the Arab country.

“I go to Dubai very often, and every time I used to go, it was like from their actions you were really welcome,” he said. “From the way they were behaving [this time], we are like criminals.”

Mr. Kumar's troubles are the latest example of what Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty warned about this week when he urged Prime Minister Stephen Harper to make amends with the UAE because the spat could jeopardize Canadian commerce there.

Andrew Choly, president of Toronto-based Circa Solar Energy, which exports solar-powered products, said the dispute is affecting how he conducts his business. “We aren't shipping anything out there directly because of what's going on.”

Customers in the area are asking that the product be shipped indirectly to destinations in India or Turkey, he said. “It's silly all the way around. If you can't ship to a country directly, sometimes you could lose track of the product. We have good customers over there, but now it seems like everything is about politics.”

Emirates, Etihad get France clearance


Emirates, Etihad get France clearance to operate 22 more weekly flights


Bloomberg

January 29, 2011



Virgin’s V Australia subsidiary had agreed to enter into a code-sharing agreement with Etihad which would involve frequent-flyer programmes as well as coordinated pricing and scheduling. Image Credit: Gulf News archive

Emirates and Etihad Airways won clearance to add 22 weekly flights to France in bilateral government talks.
Emirates and Etihad will each receive permission for an additional four weekly Paris flights and seven to smaller cities, said a French Transport Ministry spokeswoman who declined to be identified, citing government rules.
Flying rights
Air France-KLM Group, Europe's biggest carrier based on traffic, had pressed the government to refuse any new flying rights to Emirates and Etihad, arguing that lower taxes and airports fees at their hubs amount to an unfair advantage.
The French carrier had no comment on the agreement, Nicolas Petteau, a spokesman at the company's Paris headquarters, said yesterday.
Emirates said in an e-mailed statement that it was "encouraged by these developments."
Emirates is the biggest customer for the Airbus A380, with 90 of the superjumbos on order or flying.
The airline overtook Deutsche Lufthansa AG in 2009 as the biggest carrier on international flights following a sixfold increase in traffic since 2000, when it ranked 24th.
La Tribune newspaper reported on the aviation agreement earlier yesterday, without citing anyone.

Resume talks
The newspaper said the stalled talks on a UAE order for Rafale fighter jets from Paris-based Dassault Aviation would resume following the deal.
The French ministry spokeswoman declined to comment.
