@aaijharsugudaa1 It gives us immense pleasure in informing you that flights to Bangalore and Mumbai will commence from #AAI’s VSS AIRPORT Jharsuguda from 12th January. It will be 4 days a week. It will fulfill a long cherished aspiration of the local community of Western Odisha. Happy new year.

@AmericanAir Today we operated our first commercial flight on the Boeing 737 MAX since its extensive, 20-month recertification process with a flight crew who has 150+ combined years of experience. The crew was proud to fly today’s flight with our customers, family members and Robert Isom.

@AtlasAirWW We are proud to announce the completion of a transoceanic sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) test flight that originated at Spain’s Zaragoza Airport. This flight was powered by a blend of fuel containing 2.33% SAF sourced from fresh vegetable oil.

@ByERussell “We’ll experience two distinct phases during the next 12 months. The first will look a lot like 2020. The second… when we reach a turning point with widely available vaccinations that spur a significant return to travel.” -Delta CEO in new year’s message to staff. $DAL.

@ByERussell What do Maui and Washington National have in common? Two airports where the A321neo can “do what Alaska needs to be done from those airports,” and not the MAX.  @crankyflier.
