@AAI_Official #AAI’s Darbhanga @aaidarairport touched 30K mark in terms of passenger traffic through 170 flights in Nov’20. Being a newly operationalized airport under RCS- UDAN, the progress made in a month is noteworthy, all thanks to cooperation of passengers & airport staff.#IndiaFliesHigh.

@AvWeekScho Korean Air takes an early step in integrating with Asiana (in advance of merger) by starting inter-airline through check-in (IATCI) between them from Dec. 15. Korean Air says it will take more steps as they look to integrate. Still some regulatory hurdles to overcome, though.

@ByERussell Aeromexico joins the list of airlines resuming #737MAX revenue flights in December, plans 21 Dec. first flights. @WandrMe.

@dominicgates Boeing has expanded the scope of its review of 787 production after finding more instances of a quality defect initially thought confined to the aft fuselage plant in S.C. It’s prompted inspections at other 787 fuselage plants in the U.S., Italy and Japan.

@LuxuryTravelled According to their latest travel trade email, Virgin Atlantic have decided to withdraw their Manchester to Mumbai & Delhi services due to start in January.  They ‘remain committed’ to the recently launched Barbados, further Caribbean routes and the US ‘in the coming weeks’.
