EU scraps mask mandate for flights and airports https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/eu-scraps-mask-mandate-for-flights-and-airports/ Mon, 16 May 2022 05:22:04 +0000 https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/eu-scraps-mask-mandate-for-flights-and-airports/ Even the pilots had to wear masks on board.

Even the pilots had to wear masks on board. Here, a first officer wears a protective mask while performing pre-flight checks inside the cockpit aboard a passenger plane operated by Wizz Air at Liszt Ferenc Airport in Budapest, Hungary.

The European Union is set to drop its mask mandate for passengers on flights and at airports from Monday, following an update to guidance for the aviation industry.

The recommendation for compulsory wearing of medical masks at airports and on board a flight is lifted on May 16, the EU Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Center for Prevention and of disease control, while noting that a face mask is still one. the best protection against the transmission of Covid-19.

The updated guidance takes into account the latest developments in the pandemic, “in particular the levels of vaccination and naturally acquired immunity, and the accompanying lifting of restrictions in an increasing number of European countries”, said the EASA. said in a press release.

The move is a big step forward and largely aligns with public transport rules across Europe, according to EASA Executive Director Patrick Ky.

“For passengers and air crew, this is a big step forward in the normalization of air travel. Passengers, however, should behave responsibly and respect the choices of others around them. And a passenger coughing and sneezing should strongly consider wearing a face mask, to reassure people sitting nearby.”

Meanwhile, ECDC director Andrea Ammon said that “although risks remain, we have seen that non-pharmaceutical interventions and vaccines have enabled our lives to start to return to normal”.

It is hoped that the removal of mask-wearing mandates will be a boost to an aviation and tourism industry hard hit over the past two years, as a significant number of people have postponed their trips while there had added layers of Covid requirements, from Covid tests and vaccinations to passenger locator forms and mask-wearing on planes.

Now, many countries have dropped Covid testing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers and passenger locator forms, as a significant number of their populations are fully vaccinated and boosted.

Rules may vary by airline

However, individual airlines can still choose to recommend or require mask-wearing on board, EASA said, with the rules likely to continue to vary by airline beyond Monday.

For example, flights to or from a destination where mask-wearing is still required on public transport should continue to encourage mask-wearing, according to the recommendations. Vulnerable passengers should continue to wear a face mask regardless of the rules, EASA added, and social distancing should be encouraged in indoor areas of the airport where possible.

New variants of Covid continue to emerge and the pandemic has not been officially declared over, with some parts of the world still experiencing large outbreaks of Covid. Health officials have urged governments to remain cautious, insisting a new strain of Covid could arise that is more virulent and dangerous than the previous one.

“New VOCs [variants of concern] are frequently discovered with varying degrees of immune evasion and symptom severity,” the EASA said. Airport staff, crew members and passengers should pay particular attention to the recommendations and requirements of national authorities in the state of the country they are visiting, she added. .

A veteran superyacht captain and diver whose tours his company touted as ‘beyond legend’ has been arrested after 110 pounds of bricks of cocaine were found near the stranded body of a diver, authorities say australian.

James “Jimmy” Blee was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon at Cairns airport, where he had attempted to board a plane that would have taken him from Queensland to Singapore, police said. The 62-year-old Australian citizen has been charged with two drug importation offences, according to The Guardian.

As authorities in New South Wales sought Blee’s extradition to their state on Thursday, investigators scrambled to determine how a supply of illicit drugs worth more than $20 million ended up Monday in Newcastle harbor waters.

The loot was discovered shortly after an unconscious man was found on a nearby shore wearing sophisticated scuba gear designed to hide signs of surface underwater activity. The man, whom authorities have not identified, died at the scene. We thought he was South American.

South Wales detective Robert Critchlow told reporters it appeared the man had been ‘left for dead’ at the scene by at least one other accomplice, the Australian ABC News reported.

“People don’t dive alone,” Critchlow added, according to The Australian. “It is something concerning that there are obviously more people involved than the dead man.”

It was not immediately clear whether authorities believed Blee was present at the port of Newcastle this week.

The 62-year-old is a “seagoing professional and dedicated marine conservationist with over 30 years of experience in luxury yachting throughout Southeast Asia”, according to a website for North Queensland Superyacht Marine & Tours, a company he co-founded after returning to Australia two years ago. Prior to 2020, Blee had lived and worked for decades in Indonesia, according to his LinkedIn profile, where he consulted and chartered luxury yacht trips and “expedition-style cruises.”

“With his 25 years of experience and his contacts in Asia, Jimmy has a network that extends far and wisely throughout the region,” reports his biography.

The captain’s skills in navigating Southeast Asian waters were “beyond legend”, he boasted on his LinkedIn, leaving him “in great demand” as a guide. Also an “avid diver” by his own reckoning, Blee’s biography states that he racked up over 3,000 dives, most “in the waters of eastern Indonesia”.

The pandemic has apparently scuttled his maritime business interests in Indonesia, although Blee seemed optimistic about the future. “Once post-COVID really starts to kick in, I’m pretty sure we’re going to see some adventures,” he said in a May 2021 podcast episode of Superyacht Radio, according to Daily Mail. “Pretty exciting times for everyone.”

Remaining moored near the scene on Thursday was a South American freighter, which police say originated in Argentina, carrying a cargo of soybean powder to Newcastle on Sunday evening. Authorities said they believe the massive shipment of drugs was tied up and hidden inside the ship, which is registered in the Marshall Islands as Areti GR Majuro.

Port officials had spotted a small dinghy and a 5-meter aluminum speedboat floating near the vessel that night, Critchlow said. According to ABC News, only “part” of the transport ended up in the water, with more than 400 pounds of cocaine said to be missing.

“It’s a high-end, sophisticated operation,” the detective alleged.

MSP Airport looking to hire 700 workers in anticipation of surge in summer travelers https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/msp-airport-looking-to-hire-700-workers-in-anticipation-of-surge-in-summer-travelers/ Wed, 11 May 2022 21:30:14 +0000 https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/msp-airport-looking-to-hire-700-workers-in-anticipation-of-surge-in-summer-travelers/ Employers in Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is looking to hire some 700 people this summer as pandemic-weary travelers are expected to take flight in droves.

Employers in Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is looking to hire some 700 people this summer as pandemic-weary travelers are expected to take flight in droves.

MSP airport officials predict this summer will be the busiest since 2019 – before COVID-19 decimated air travel.

To prepare for the expected crowds, the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) held a job fair at Terminal 1 on Tuesday to attract potential candidates for jobs in airlines, air support companies, flight operations security, food, beverage and hospitality services and retail stores.

The airport has partnered with more than 32 employers, including Delta Air Lines, Sun Country Airlines, FedEx, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), United States Customs and Border Control, Caribou Coffee and others , for the event.

“We’re so busy all the time, we need people,” said Stacy Wilkens, human resources director at the InterContinental Minneapolis-St. Paul, which is connected to Terminal 1. While more travelers are expected this summer, Wilkens said the hotel has also seen an increase in weddings and corporate events.

According to MAC spokesman Jeff Lea, 89% of airport locations have reopened at least part-time, including 92% of retail stores in both terminals and 87% of MSP restaurants and food outlets.

The recovery rate for airport concessions is around 75%, Lea said, meaning more sites are open but many are still operating at reduced hours.

Attracting employees to work at the airport “will make it easier for more stores and restaurants to reopen or extend their hours to meet expected customer demand for the upcoming summer season,” Lea said in an email. He noted that there are job openings with the TSA, US Customs and Aviation Support Services that also bolster airport operations.

“I saw an ad on Facebook about it, so I decided to get out,” said Paige Van Pelt, a stay-at-home mom from Edina who wants to work for an airline. “It helps that they have everyone here in one place.”

San Francisco-based airline and travel analyst Henry Harteveldt said labor shortages are one of the biggest potential constraints to travel this summer.

“The Memorial Day holiday weekend, which traditionally marks the start of the summer travel season in the United States, is now just under three weeks away,” Harteveldt said. “For the airlines, the next few weeks are ‘do or die’ weeks – either they have enough people to complete their training before the summer or they don’t.”

Airlines, including MSP’s dominant carrier Delta, are hiring at nearly every level, including airport workers, reservations agents, pilots and flight attendants, he said.

Openings at MSP accommodate all skill levels and include full-time, part-time and seasonal positions, with morning, evening and night shifts. Most employers pay more than the minimum wage rate of $14.25 – which drops to $15 on July 1 – and some offer hiring and retention bonuses.

Jeff Garver, chief operating officer of St. Louis Park-based Aero Service Group, said he expects passenger numbers to be “at or above 2019 levels this summer.”

Aero, which operates Stone Arch and Lake Wine Kitchen + Bar in Terminal 1 and Cocina Del Barrio in Terminal 2, participated in the job fair seeking nine cooks and two managers for its popular restaurants. (Once Lake Wine reopens later this year after a “refresh” of its restaurant, the company will hire 30 additional employees.)

Harteveldt noted that competition for good employees is tough and that working at an airport poses certain challenges. Airport jobs can require applicants to navigate unique hurdles, including background security testing, drug testing, and proper credentials, before they can begin training and then begin to work, he said. In addition, some employees must go through security to get to work.

At least one job applicant said Tuesday that MSP’s easy access to blue and green light rail service is a real benefit to the airport. (Both terminals have LRT stations.)

Aero’s Garver says MSP is “a great place to work. The airport provides a safe working environment that’s busy all the time and you can meet fun people from all over the world.”

Mexico to cut flights at main airport after near miss on runway https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/mexico-to-cut-flights-at-main-airport-after-near-miss-on-runway/ Tue, 10 May 2022 04:48:00 +0000 https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/mexico-to-cut-flights-at-main-airport-after-near-miss-on-runway/ MEXICO CITY, May 9 (Reuters) – A Mexican official overseeing an investigation into an incident in which two planes nearly crashed into a runway at the country’s main airport said on Monday operations at the overcrowded facility would be reduced by 25%.

MEXICO CITY, May 9 (Reuters) – A Mexican official overseeing an investigation into an incident in which two planes nearly crashed into a runway at the country’s main airport said on Monday operations at the overcrowded facility would be reduced by 25%.

Video of Saturday’s near miss at Mexico City International Airport showed one plane coming to land just above another waiting to take off on the same runway.

Deputy Transport Minister Rogelio Jimenez Pons expressed concern about a number of recent incidents related to air safety.

“There is this instruction to reduce operations by 25% in 12 months. The airport has been saturated and in a terrible state for decades,” Jiminez Pons said in a media interview.

He said to implement the reduction, flights would be diverted to other airports, such as the newly built Felipe Angeles International Airport nearby.

He said the near-miss at one of Latin America’s busiest airports was most likely caused by an air traffic control error, noting that Mexico was short by around 250 controllers, meaning that they work longer, but that lives were not in danger.

“The pilots were able to figure it out. We never put people’s safety at risk. Yes, it was a scary situation, but the pilots’ defense was tested and thank God these people are prepared. .”

Video of the incident involving the two jets from low-cost Mexican airline Volaris (VOLARA.MX) surfaced online after an international pilots association cited “several” safety issues in the airspace of the capital. Read more

Volaris shares fell almost 8% on Monday. On Sunday, the carrier’s chief executive, Enrique Beltranena, said on Twitter that he had called for internal and external investigations.

“Thanks to the training of our pilots and their impeccable control of the processes, no passenger or crew member was in danger,” Beltranena said.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador called on authorities to “put the airspace in order” and said the director of navigation services in Mexican airspace (SENEAM), Victor Hernandez, had resigned.

Jose Alfredo Covarruvias, general secretary of the Mexican union of air traffic controllers, told Reuters the union had sent about 30 safety incident reports to the federal civil aviation agency.

“We need to see what factors led to this mistake, first and foremost to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” said Covarruvias, who also welcomed the investigation and Hernandez’s resignation. “If it happens again, it’s not an accident,” he added.

Senator Ricardo Monreal, a prominent member of the ruling MORENA party that opposed Lopez Obrador, called on the heads of Mexico’s transport and civil aviation authorities to testify before Congress.

He also called on lawmakers to address recent problems at the airport.

“Like thousands of people, I’ve experienced flight delays, but this week they got worse,” Monreal said on Twitter. “The legislature should act to understand the causes and support a solution.”

Felipe Angeles International Airport, defended by Lopez Obrador and built by the armed forces, officially opened in March.

It was intended to relieve the overcrowded Mexico City International Airport, but Reuters found that the airport was still under construction nearly a month after its inauguration and had few daily flights. Read more

In May 2021, the United States downgraded Mexico’s air safety rating, which prevents Mexican carriers from adding new American flights and limits the ability of airlines to enter into joint marketing agreements.

In the candid photos, Miss Jackson looked relaxed as she wore a matching gray hoodie and track pants with chunky white trainers, a large scarf and some very cool shades. She also seemed in good spirits, with a cheeky smile on her face.

His upbeat mood came with a good reason, like his post Kentucky Derby show with New edition was a huge success, according to WLK in Louisville, Kentucky. “She’s a patron, the norm, the role model, a legend, I mean, she’s the icon,” said an enthusiastic fan of the concert. Amazingly, the show was Janet’s first live performance in three years.

However, the successful gig wasn’t Janet’s only fun activity that week. She attended the Barnstable Brown Gala on May 7, an event celebrating the Kentucky Derby. At the ceremony, she looked sleek and clean in a fashion-forward black trench coat.

Best of all, the “Feedback” singer snapped some adorable photos with Anna Nicole Smiththe 15 year old girl, Dannielynn Birkheadand his father, Larry Birkhead. That night, Dannielynn coincidentally wore the exact outfit Janet wore to the same event in 2003! It was purchased at a charity auction, according to Larry. The 49-year-old photographer also had nothing but positive things to say about Janet in a post on his official Instagram account.

“What a night! Dannielynn met @janetjackson at the Barnstable-Brown gala, while wearing Janet’s outfit she wore to the same party in 2003. Janet was so kind and complimentary to Dannielynn in her outfit. She made Dannielynn so happy and even graciously posed for a photo with us,” the caption read.

In the first snapshot, the three stood among a bustling crowd under blue lighting, directly facing the camera. Along with her award-winning smile, Dannielynn sported Janet’s sleek suit and cute black cap, giving off some serious “Rhythm Nation” vibes. In the second photo, the three look away from the camera, appearing to be engaged in conversation, Janet demonstrating her typically shy but friendly demeanor.

An upstart airline that plans to connect Asian cities to the 48 contiguous cities, with Anchorage as its hub, is launching a $6 million project to upgrade part of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

Northern Pacific Airways, a subsidiary of rural Alaska traveler Ravn Alaska, plans to make upgrades to the North Terminal, including a 50-person theater area where visitors can watch short clips about Alaska.

The company, which plans to start flying in November, will also build a lounge and bar for customers with a live projection showing wild Alaskan bears or the northern lights, officials said. An office will be renovated for flight crews and other employees.

The renovation is expected to be completed in August, said Rob McKinney, chief executive of both airlines.

Northern Pacific Airways plans to offer year-round travel to destinations such as Tokyo; Seoul, South Korea; Orlando Florida; and LA. The company is retrofitting Boeing 757-200s that once flew for American Airlines. He created a cryptocurrency-based mileage rewards program.

Northern Pacific hopes to direct some passengers to rural Alaska after landing in Anchorage, McKinney said. This will complement Ravn Alaska’s operations in much of the state, he said.

Northern Pacific initially plans to move about 1,000 passengers a day, on eight flights. It plans to employ around 300 people, he said.

“The goal here is to bring Anchorage back to life as a passenger hub,” McKinney said.

International passenger flights once stopped frequently in Anchorage, but declined in the 1990s after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the opening of airspace over Russia, Craig said. Campbell, acting airport manager.

That, and the introduction of longer-range jets, reduced international airlines’ reliance on Anchorage.

McKinney said the company sees promise in the flight offering that replicates the airport’s current importance as a stopover for international cargo flights.

Bill Popp, director of Anchorage Economic Development Corp., said the renovations would be “significant progress” for the terminal. The terminal was busy when Anchorage was known as the “crossroads of the world”, before international passenger traffic declined, he said.

“It will give us a new opportunity to resume international travel,” Popp said. “This will open up opportunities for tourism and international business in Anchorage.”

Late last month, McKinney joined city and state officials in a symbolic “wall breaking,” smashing drywall with gold sledgehammers to begin office renovations.

Anchorage Mayor Dave Bronson, speaking at the event, said the new airline will bring opportunity and tourism.

“This is what progress looks like,” Mayor Dave Bronson said, speaking at the event. “This is, we hope, what the end of COVID looks like, getting back to normal growth and bringing some prosperity back to the state and especially the city.”

Lambert International Airport could get a makeover in the next decade https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/lambert-international-airport-could-get-a-makeover-in-the-next-decade/ Fri, 06 May 2022 03:25:00 +0000 https://viventingonlinemarketing.com/lambert-international-airport-could-get-a-makeover-in-the-next-decade/ ST.

ST. COUNTY LOUIS (KMOV) – Lambert International Airport could get a makeover. However, that won’t happen anytime soon. Lambert officials and engineers held an open house Thursday afternoon for St. Louis residents to review their preliminary plans for a possible redesign of the airport.

“It’s good, long overdue, long overdue,” said Conrad Bowers.

Bowers has lived in Bridgeton for 50 years. He said he and his family used the airport frequently and had been involved in the surveying phase of what a future Lambert might look like.

“We use the airport a lot. In fact, I’m always here to deliver my grandkids or pick them up,” Bowers said.

Whether for business, pleasure or just to get back to basics, Lambert Airport travelers said they would all be ready for a change.

“Generally it’s about, I mean, at most four times a year. So it’s coming here to leave and come back summer and winter,” Jason Zhang said.

Zhang is a student at the University of Washington. He too wanted to have an impact and hear about future airport projects.

“Terminal access, picking up passengers, dropping them off,” Bowers said.

These are things that many people mentioned at Thursday’s open house, and Lambert officials are listening. Airport manager Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge said she had conducted surveys over the past few months to get feedback from residents before preliminary plans were formed. The preliminary plan includes a single-terminal airport with 62 gates. This would happen at terminal one with renovations and additions. In addition to a new terminal design, an all-new east-west terminal road system would be constructed to facilitate traffic flow. On the airport grounds, engineers said they were incorporating new parking garages, better overall parking, and roomier indoor concourses with moving walkways.

“There is a lot of phasing, a lot of road works. Obviously, if we decide this is something as a region and our airline partners that we want to embark on, there will be more and more details as we go,” Hamm-Niebruegge said.

If the change happens, Lambert officials said no taxpayer dollars would be spent on the project. The cost depends on the airlines. Many people News 4 spoke to on Thursday are supportive of the changes.

“Having everything consolidated with one terminal, I mean, that means you don’t have to go through multiple security checkpoints to get to another lobby, having all the concessions in one place,” Zhang said.

Others echoed the same idea of ​​convenience.

“The plan where we are consolidating is exceptional. Like I said, we use the airport quite a bit and terminal one is nice, it’s not crowded, but terminal two is a real problem,” Bowers explained.

At this time, there are no tentative or established plans for Terminal Two. These are just the preliminary stages and no decision has been made yet. However, if this plan comes to fruition, it will take about a decade.
