@shukla_tarun “Fantastic opportunity to lead a historic airline.” Incoming @airindiain CEO Campbell Wilson on his new role.
@SpaethFlies Good example how to make the best out of a difficult situation: @Finnair brought back its North Pole diploma for the first time since the late 1980s since Russian overflights are off limits again, as shown here today by their CEO @TopiManner #avgeek.
@tedreednc Unlike a deal with JetBlue, a deal with Frontier would “deliver $1 billion in annual consumer savings,” says @SpiritAirlines CEO Ted Christie.
@TextronAviation We are thrilled to announce the first delivery of the @Cessna SkyCourier twin utility turboprop to @FedEx Express. This is the first of 50 freighter aircraft that global logistics firm FedEx Express ordered as the SkyCourier’s launch customer.
@WandrMe ITA officially took delivery of its first A350. Operations planned for June 2022, to LAX, GRU, EZE. The plane is configured 31J/301Y.
