@AirlineFlyer The on-again, off-again death of @interjet appears to be on-again. While its website and social channels say nothing, @IATA has suspended ticket sales and @El_Universal_Mx reports that all flights through end of year are cancelled.
@SeanM1997 British Airways to combine its London Heathrow – Sao Paulo and London Heathrow – Buenos Aires routes to be one flight from 28 March 2021. Buenos Aires will no longer be served non-stop from London Heathrow. Thanks to @cmcgoldrick7 for heads up.
@SeanM1997 Vistara have put on sale its Summer 2021 schedule, including 4x weekly flights between Delhi and London Heathrow. The route will compete with Air India, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic – each of which operate 2x daily flights.
@Transport_EU We welcome the @eurocontrol report providing clarity on the important fuel & CO2 reduction potential of ATM from 8.6 to 11.2%. This can be achieved via more efficient flight trajectories, and the proposed reform of the #SingleEuropeanSky will be crucial to realizing this saving.
@WandrMe Some optimism from @Embraer in the way air travel will shift as a result of the pandemic. Strong outlook (400+ jets/year) in the <150 seat markets, 75% of which are replacements of older frames.
