@sandeeprrao1991 According to UK Civil Aviation Authority, Bengaluru-LHR was the 3rd busiest route wrt pax carried on the india-lhr sector with 231,123 passengers. Followed by LHR-HYD-LHR (141,428 pax) & LHR-MAA-LHR (136,481 pax).  #Avgeek

@simonasbartkus Lithuanian Airports reported the average load factors in July were 62,5% in Vilnius Airport, 61,0% in Kaunas and 62,3% in Palanga. It is better than I could expect after a 44% average load factor in June.

@simonasbartkus .@wizzair surprise move: new routes from @riga_airport to Birmingham, Stockholm, Hamburg, Billund and Trondheim starting in October. Also, the restart of Reykjavik and Bergen routes. Possibly, the return of 2nd based aircraft and giving a hard time for @airBaltic  (again).

@v1images A conversion from passenger to cargo aircraft is in progress with this airframe. The aircraft started life as B-6127 then TC-OCR. It is destined to join the DHL / ASL Airlines Ireland fleet once work is complete. 

@winglets747 The world’s newest airline and 787 operator: Air Premia from Korea. Original pre-Covid plan was to launch on regional Asia flights and later to the US with Dreamliners in a two-class premium economy and economy cabin.
