Aviation News:

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has allowed the use of taxibots to tow single-aisle aircraft from the parking bay to the runway on a trial basis. Usage of these semi-robotic vehicles to tow the aircraft while keeping its engines shut will enable airlines reduce fuel consumption and pollution. Pilots will remote control these vehicles until the runway point.

According to a press report by PTI, the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport in Delhi will be the first to have these vehicles. SpiceJet airlines will be the first airline to conduct the trials of these taxibots. Commercial usage is expected to commence with effect from October this year.

DGCA has "accepted a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) supplemental type certificate that allows taxibots to tow an aircraft from the parking bay to the runway holding point without using the main engines...", the press report continued.

Supplemental type certificate is a document issued when an applicant has received the FAA's approval to modify an aeronautical product from its original design.

The Israel Aerospace Industries has developed the taxibots and has entered into an agreement with India-based KSU Aviation for operating these vehicles in India.

According to a KSU spokesperson, "The use of taxibots will help in cutting carbon dioxide emission at the IGI airport drastically. Usually, 800 kg of carbon dioxide is emitted for every 15 minutes of taxing. Globally, in the airline space, 80 million tons of carbon dioxide is emitted every year because of aircraft taxing."

Eighty-five per cent of the fuel consumed during taxing can be checked with the use of a taxibot. Other advantages include reduction of noise level by 60 per cent. Taxibots could also reduce foreign object damage by 50 per cent since the engine remains shut, as per some independent studies.

The first taxibot will be brought to Chennai this month and then transported to Delhi. In all, orders for 40 these vehicles has been placed, he said, adding that airport operators in Mumbai, Chennai and Bengaluru have evinced keen desire in adopting this vehicle.

The spokesperson said that as of now they are determining and finalising the operational procedures for use of taxibot at the IGI airport.

Etihad Airways has announced the launch of a major transformation programme for Economy Class cabins. The programme includes cabin upgrades and refurbishment of 23 narrow-body Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, with a completion date scheduled for August this year.

The Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft are used mainly on short-haul regional services and to destinations that fall within five hours of flight from Abu Dhabi.

The refreshed modern cabins will include new personalised wireless streaming entertainment to smartphone and tablet devices, a new and improved Economy dining concept, and new industry-leading Extra-spatial Design seats.

The new seats feature increased knee room and are cleverly designed with fast-charging USB points and an adjustable phone and tablet holder for extra comfort. For dining, the airline has redesigned the complimentary dining concept for flights longer than 3 hours.

These flight will feature a larger, contemporary bistro-style meal with high-quality, fresh seasonal ingredients and more destination focused choices. Dessert will be served separately with the after-meal coffee & tea service, thereby reducing clutter on the tray during the main meal.

As part of the new dining sequence, delicious dessert items will be served separately with the after-meal coffee and tea service, reducing clutter on the tray during the main meal. On shorter flights, dessert will be served with the main meal.

In addition, the airline has focused on making its dining experience more eco-friendly with base plates made of recycled materials and 85 percent lighter cutlery. Having lighter cutlery reduces the aircraft weight and, thereby, fuel consumption. Each year, the airline also aims to remove 27 million plastic lids and other containers, supporting its drive towards greater sustainability and to reduce the use of single-use plastics by 80 per cent by 2022.

For in-flight entertainment, passengers can download the E-Box Stream App prior to travel and enjoy access to a wide range of entertainment including Hollywood blockbusters and HBO. In addition, guests can connect to Etihad’s onboard Panasonic eXW system and wirelessly stream over 300 hours of free in-flight entertainment directly to their own devices.

In-flight entertainment via personal seat back screens will remain standard in the Economy cabins on the airline’s fleet of wide-body Airbus and Boeing aircraft. Etihad is also refreshing soft products including new blankets, pillows and headrest covers to further enhance in-flight comfort and ambience.

Commenting on the launch, Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Aviation Group said, "Etihad has always been a challenger brand, shaping the future of travel as the market constantly changes. We are bringing the leadership and innovation to Economy travel which we have long established in our award-winning Business, First and The Residence cabins."

"As a leading full-service airline, Etihad is adapting to meet the specific needs and requirements of all travellers, providing more of what they really want to enjoy in-flight. This not only delivers greater choice and personalisation, it also ensures we continue to provide a superior, commercially-wise and sustainable service offering," continued Mr. Douglas.

Etihad Airways has announced the successful completion of its first single-use plastic-free flight on Earth Day. Flight EY484, which landed in Brisbane on 22 April – Earth Day, was the first flight in the region across all airlines to operate without any single-use plastics on board. The flight was undertaken in a bid to raise awareness of the effects of plastic pollution.

The airline has undertaken a commitment to go beyond Earth Day celebrations, and pledge to reduce single-use plastic usage by 80 percent not just in flight, but across the entire organisation by the end of 2022.

On Earth Day, Etihad identified and removed over 95 single-use plastic products that were used across its aircraft cabins and presented guests with sustainable amenity kits, award-winning eco-thread blankets made out of recycled plastic bottles, tablet toothpaste and edible coffee cups; children were treated to eco-plush toys.

In this way, the airline prevented over 50 kilograms of plastics from being landfilled. Going forward, Etihad has committed to remove up to 20 percent of the single-use plastic items used on board by June 1, 2019. By the end of this year, Etihad will have removed 100 tonnes of single-use plastics from its in-flight service.

In addition, the airline is committed to the implementation of fuel-saving initiatives to reduce carbon dioxide emissions further. In 2018 alone, the airline reduced carbon emissions by 1,48,000 tonnes - a saving equivalent to approximately 1,236 flights between Abu Dhabi and Barcelona or the removal of over 10,200 cars from the road.

The airline achieved this by retiring its B777-200 aircraft and replacing it with Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft in operation. Additional measures such as utilising a single engine to taxi the aircraft in and out on the tarmac reduces fuel burn and selecting lower flap settings to reduce drag and conserve fuel were also employed.

An improved engine washing procedure performed at regular intervals to remove environmental deposits, which increase engine workload, also improved efficiency by as much as 0.5 per cent.

According to a press release issued by the airline on the subject, "Fuel consumption is influenced by several factors such as air traffic management, weight carried and how the aircraft is flown."

Commenting on the subject, Captain Sulaiman Yaqoobi , VP - Flight Operations at Etihad Airways said, "By increasing collaboration on a monthly basis within the airline’s Flight Operations, Network Operations, Ground Operations areas and Etihad Engineering, Etihad saw noticeable improvements to its fuel savings and emissions profile, a top agenda for a sustainable airline."

Etihad operates a programme of innovative thinking devoted to sustainability and carbon reduction, refined through continuous operational adjustments as well as long-term projects such as aviation biofuel development.

Qantas Airlines has announced the successful completion of the world's first-ever Zero-waste commercial flight. This flight with no landfill waste production marks the beginning of the airline's plan to cut 100 million single-use plastics by 2020 end. The airline also aims to eliminate 75 percent of the airline's waste by 2021 end.

All in-flight products used onboard Flight QF739 flying from Sydney to Adelaide and staffed by cabin crew from the Qantas ‘Green Team’ will be disposed of via compost, reuse or recycling.

To ensure this, the airline substituted or removed altogether from the flight about 1000 single-use plastic items. Sustainable alternatives such as individually-packaged servings of milk and Vegemite, fully-compostable meal containers made from sugar cane and cutlery made from crop starch were used.

At the end of the meal service, Qantas cabin crew collected the items left over for reuse, recycling or composting in multiple waste streams.

Passengers did their bit by preferring digital boarding passes and electronic bag tags; staff were on hand to ensure any paper passes and tags used were disposed of sustainably. The Qantas lounges at Sydney Airport’s domestic terminal also went ‘green’ for the flight, with multiple waste streams in use.

Qantas and Jetstar will replace 45 million plastic cups, 30 million cutlery sets, 21 million coffee cups and 4 million headrest covers with sustainable alternatives by the end of 2020, in its effort to remove 100 million single use plastic items every year.

A press release issued by the airline on the subject stated, "Airlines are legally required to dispose of some materials permanently, such as quarantined food from international flights. Qantas will work with suppliers and government to reduce the volume of this waste."

"The national carrier’s waste reduction initiative has been called The Bowerbird Project, named after the Australian bird that reuses small plastic items. The name was nominated by a cabin crew member in a staff competition," the press release continued.

In addition to these measures, the airline operates the largest carbon offset scheme in the aviation industry, with a passenger offsetting their flight every minute. From mid-2019, customers will earn 10 Qantas Points for every dollar spent offsetting their travel from Australia, which is the highest standard earn rate of any frequent flyer initiative.

Austrian Airlines has announced the launch of additional train services as part of its efforts to reduce the disruptions caused by the scheduled runway renewal at the Salzburg Airport. The train services will connect Salzburg Central Station to the Vienna Airport, thereby, giving passengers a viable alternative to Salzburg.

The runway at Salzburg Airport is currently undergoing a renewal process; all flight operations to and from Salzburg Airport has been thus suspended until the end of May 2019.

This means that in the case of an unexpected delay of the train or flight, passengers will be automatically booked on an alternative connecting service if they do not reach their train or flight on time. Business Class passengers travel in first class on the train and are also given free access to the ÖBB lounge before departure. Moreover, passengers can collect miles on AIRail route within the context of the Miles & More program. Finally, there is also a catering voucher, which can be used in the ÖBB dining car.

British Airways has become the first UK airline to use biometric technology for boarding international flights from USA to UK. The technology means that customers need to present their passport only at check-in and security. They no longer need it at the departure gate; they do not even need to show their boarding pass.

Instead travellers simply look into a camera prior to boarding, wait for their biometric data to be verified and then walk onto the aircraft. The face recognition technology has transformed the airport experience into a seamless experience for passengers flying from Orlando, Los Angeles and New York, JFK.

It has halved the amount of time taken to board an aircraft.

A press release issued by British Airways stated, "At Orlando, British Airways is boarding almost 240 customers in 10 minutes – becoming the first carrier to set up permanent facial recognition gates at the airport."

The airline was also the first UK airline to use this technology on domestic (UK) flights departing from London Heathrow. Currently, all domestic departures from the airline’s home hub at Heathrow Terminal 5 are boarded biometrically.

"For international flights, self-service boarding gates have now been installed at the terminal, allowing customers to scan their own boarding cards to gain access to their flight. It’s the first step towards biometric boarding on international flights from the UK," continued the press release.

Commenting on the subject, Raoul Cooper, Senior Digital Design Manager at British Airways said, "The airport of the future will be built upon biometric technology, from check-in and baggage drops to security checks and boarding. These days, automation is a part of everyday life, as is biometric technology via our mobile phones. We’re working with our technology partners and the US government to explore how we can use this technology in new and innovative ways to give our customers the stress-free, easy airport experience they tell us they want, while ensuring security is always our top priority."

Every detail has been carefully designed and we’ve created a space to meet our customers’ needs – whether they want to relax and have a meal or enjoy a craft beer and catch up on the world news."

The opening of the new lounge marks the completion of a £52 million investment to improve customer experience and follows the opening of the new First lounge in October 2018. The new First lounge at JFK features a boutique pre-flight dining service, an opulent bar as well as a state-of-the-art wine room with an enomatic dispenser that ensures each glass of wine is served at exactly the right temperature and oxidized to the precise level.

The First Wing and First check-in are also open to ensure a smooth start to the journey.
