@Airbus Congratulations to @QatarAirways on becoming the world’s largest #A350 operator following the recent delivery of its 53rd aircraft of the type. Good to see the A350 as the new backbone of Qatar Airways’ fleet – supporting more fuel efficient and low CO2-emitting operations.
@DarshanDevaiahB #Bengaluru International Airport’s south runway upgraded to CAT IIIB. This facilitates aircraft landing with a Runway Visual Range as low as 50 meters and take-offs at 125 metres. This makes
@BLRAirport the only Airport in South #India and sixth in the Country.
@gary_kelly Today, I had the opportunity to fly on one of our 737 MAX Readiness Flights, one of hundreds of such flights that will take place before we welcome Customers back onboard the MAX in 2021. My flight today only reaffirmed my supreme confidence in the airworthiness of the MAX.
@GEAviation It’s not every day that one operator reaches 25 million engine flight hours with a GE engine family. Congrats @SkyWestAirlines on this milestone. SkyWest has grown to be the single largest CF34 operator with a fleet of over 1,200 CF34 engines.
@GEpublicaffairs The Diamond DART-550 recently took its first flight with the new @GEAviation H75-A engine! The flight lays the foundation for the GE engine to undergo flight and aerobatic tests on the brand-new aircraft.
