@dehavillandAIR #Dash8 are leading the recovery in the aviation industry. In June, our Dash 8 fleet will service over 700 routes across the globe. Of those, 6% will replace jet aircraft, 11% will establish new routes and 83% will resume regular flights.
@hifly_airline Another unique operation for our #A380, that performed a 12h50m flight between Tianjin, China, and Montreal, Canada, carrying 46 tons of protective and medical equipment to fight the global #COVID19 virus outbreak.
@piperaircraft “We are delighted to announce the certification of the M600/SLS with the HALO Safety System by the FAA”, said Simon Caldecott, Piper Aircraft President and CEO. “This is the first aircraft to be certified with one of the most significant advancements in general aviation history.”
@talkairlines Cargo market wonders continue: Taiwan’s China Airlines estimates at least an operational profit for Q2. May cargo revenue up 151% (!) YoY, offsetting 95% drop in pax rev and improving rev decline to -27%. Global #CovidCombi fleet now 130+, though Lufthansa believes peak is near.
@WandrMe Looks like @BoeingAirplanes assembly pace is ramping up, as the company is ready to start moving major components around again.
@volgadneprgroup will ferry the goods on its An-124 aircraft starting later this month.
