@simrantiwana Two years back, today we took our first passengers to the sky. What an amazing journey it has been! Kudos to the awesome team @OfficialStarAir.
@TDox_UAL On Friday, @united took delivery of two new 737 MAX from @Boeing and both aircraft are now at our hangar in Seattle for final preparations before being placed into service. Our teams are doing incredible work as we get ready for the return of the 737 Max on Feb. 11.
@tofly_totravel Over in Ghana, the government have reacted to BA moving the Accra route from LHR to LGW. They have suggested BA will not be granted access to the main airport in Accra (Kotoka) but will have to use a secondary airport, in what seems to be retaliation. #britishairways #accra.
@ushapadhee1996 Commencement of this route expands the air connectivity of Belagavi to 10 destinations across India. Belagavi airport has emerged as the third busiest airport in terms of traffic in the state, after Bengaluru and Mangaluru. #UDAN makes the BIG difference! #SabUdenSabJuden.
