@Forbes Air New Zealand will ask its passengers to use a digital health pass on flights to Australia as a trial run for a future digital “vaccine passport” that travellers will use to confirm that they have been immunized against Covid-19.
@grantshapps After issues this weekend, Boeing B777s with Pratt & Whitney 4000-112 series engines will be temporarily banned from entering the UK airspace. I will continue to work closely with the @UK_CAA to monitor the situation.
@rafredarrows The #RedArrows arriving today at @RAFWaddington – where the team will temporarily operate from across this week and next. Display training remains at RAF Scampton. This activity will assess how the Red Arrows can integrate into RAF Waddington, when it becomes the team’s new home.
@united We are voluntarily & temporarily removing 24 Boeing 777 aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney 4000 series engines from our schedule. We will continue to work closely with regulators to determine any additional steps and expect only a small number of customers to be inconvenienced.
@WandrMe Lots for me to like about this new route: – High-J config 763 so plenty of premium seats. – Late departure (10p) to London so better sleep on the short hop. – Late return from London (5p) so more time in Europe.
