@AAI_Official Domestic air traffic is going strong on a high growth course in terms of passenger arrival & departure since 25th May’20. Till yesterday, 4.67 Cr passengers have travelled through 4.40 Lac flights. #AAI is delighted to see these soaring numbers. #IndiaFliesHigh.
@ByERussell Cowen & Co. analysts expect TSA screenings will “regularly be at 1mn passengers/day” by the end of March. This comes as vaccination rates increase, and airlines report improving March bookings.
@cathaypacific We are proud to have successfully delivered another batch of COVID-19 vaccines to Hong Kong and other regions. Drawing on our long-established expertise in pharmaceutical shipments, we kept the vaccines transported in a deep frozen state.
@eoghancorry From IAG: @AerLingus route between London and Belfast benefitted from British subjects opting for domestic holidays, with load factors reaching 70 per cent in August.
@gotravelyourway A historical and probably my most meaningful flight to date. I was given the honour to document Afghanistan’s first ever flight with an all-female crew on Kam Air from #Kabul to Herat. Stay tuned for the full documentary on my channel soon. #Afganistan #joshcahill.
