SriLankan Airlines enters codeshare deal with Qatar Airways

Post by Rana on Mon Jun 06, 2016 8:17 pm



June 06, 2016 (LBO) – Members of oneworld alliance Qatar Airways and SriLankan Airlines have strengthened their cooperation with a new bilateral codeshare relationship which will offer customers additional convenience and flexibility.

Qatar Airways said in a statement that both airlines will codeshare on each other’s operations between their hubs – Qatar Airways’ thrice daily Airbus A340-600 operations to Colombo and SriLankan Airlines’ daily Airbus A330-300 operations to Doha.

“The combination of four daily flights between Doha and Colombo will offer customers additional convenience and flexibility,” the statement said.

For the first time, passengers travelling to Colombo on Qatar Airways will be able to connect to the popular holiday hotspot Male, in the Maldives.

Beyond Doha, SriLankan Airlines passengers can transit through Doha’s Hamad International Airport and travel onwards to 20 leisure and business destinations subject to regulatory approvals.

The list includes Europe, USA, Middle East and Africa, including Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris, Copenhagen, Moscow, Rome, Frankfurt, Geneva, Manchester, Milan, Oslo, Sofia, Stockholm, Vienna, Zurich, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Bahrain and Cape Town.

“Qatar Airways is pleased to have reached a code-sharing agreement with an established oneworld carrier like SriLankan Airlines,” Qatar Airways, Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said.

“It will deepen commercial cooperation and jointly strengthen our competitive offering in the market.”

Qatar Airways said travellers will also benefit from accruing frequent flyer miles, together with other oneworld privileges.

SIA flight catches fire while making emergency landing in Singapore

Post by කිත්සිරි ද සිල්වා on Mon Jun 27, 2016 7:44 pm

A Singapore Airlines (SIA) flight to Milan caught fire early Monday morning (Jun 27) while making an emergency landing in Singapore, but all passengers on board escaped unharmed.

Flight SQ368 departed Changi Airport for Milan at 2.05am on Monday. The flight was forced to turn back to Singapore after an engine oil warning message, SIA said in a statement.

The plane's right engine caught fire after the aircraft, a Boeing 777-300ER, touched down at the airport at around 6.50am, SIA said. Firefighters put out the fire and there were no injuries to the 222 passengers and 19 crew on board.

EVER WONDERED WHY AEROPLANE WINDOWS HAVE THAT TINY HOLE AT THE BOTTOM? HERE’S WHY

Post by Rana on Thu Jul 07, 2016 2:25 am

http://interesting-facts.info/2016/05/ever-wondered-why-aeroplane-windows-have-that-tiny-hole-at-the-bottom-heres-why/

Have you actually ever noticed, when you’re sitting at the window seat of a plane, that there’s a little hole at the bottom of the window? You may or may not have ever wondered why, but the answer is equally fascinating. It turns out that the little hole in the bottom of your airplane window is actually a very important safety feature.



IT’S A BREATHER HOLE!

Plane windows have three different tiers: outer, middle and inner panes, all of which are made of a superstrong synthetic resin. The inner layer is the ‘scratch cover’, which stops people from being able to poke the real window. It’s the middle pane that has the mysterious little hole. It’s called a breather hole and it’s used to regulate the amount of pressure that passes between the window’s inner and outer panes.



Cruising at 10,600 meters (35,000 feet), the pressure is around 1.5 kilograms (3.3 pounds) per square inch. This is too low for the human body to stay conscious, so the pressure is artificially maintained at around 3.5 kilograms (8 pounds) per square inch. But of course, if you increase pressure inside, the structure has to be strong to hold the difference between the external pressure and internal pressure. The little hole allows pressure between the air in the passenger cabin and the air between the outer and middle panes to equilibrate. If the hole weren’t there, the windows would either ‘implode or explode’.

In short, the system ensures that the outer pane bears the most pressure so that if there were a situation that caused added strain on the window, it’s the outside panel that gives out. The breather hole also allows circulation between the window panes. It let’s warm air in between the two panes keeping the outer window from getting fogged up from the really cool air outside.

Re: Flying is the Safest mode of Transport

Post by කිත්සිරි ද සිල්වා on Fri Jul 08, 2016 6:15 pm

Since its commercial introduction in 2007, the Airbus A380 has brought a long-lost sense of glamour back to travel. Its first-class cabins feature private showers and buttery leather armchairs. It sports in-flight lounges where bartenders mix bespoke cocktails. A broad staircase reminiscent of a 1920s ocean liner links the two decks. Financially speaking, it’s a disaster of similarly grand proportions.

An initial flood of interest from airlines has turned into a slow drip, and Airbus is leaning heavily on one customer, Emirates, for sales. Not a single U.S. carrier has bought one, and Japanese airlines, among the biggest cheerleaders for huge planes, have taken just a handful. Airbus has delivered 193 A380s—early on it predicted airlines would buy 1,200 supersize planes over two decades—and has only 126 in its order book, to be built over the next five years or so. Worse, many orders appear squishy, because airlines are shifting away from superjumbos. As the aviation world starts gathering on July 11 for the Farnborough International Airshow in England, where carriers often announce big orders, there’s little indication any A380 contract will be unveiled.

Our commitment to continued success is unwavering and a testament to the dedication of our global teams. The airline’s renowned service, modern aircraft and luxurious cabins, combined with an expanding global network, continue to set Qatar Airways apart from the competition.”

Third placed Singapore Airlines achieved top success winning the award for Best Airline in Asia, as well as the title for the Best Business Class Airline Seat. Commenting on the awards.

Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos said: “I am honoured to accept these awards but this recognition belongs most of all to Norwegian’s hard-working staff and our loyal passengers. We believe that not only should air travel be affordable to all, but also that low-cost can still mean high-quality. It is truly rewarding to see that our brand new planes, expansive route network, low fares and the great service offered by our crew have been appreciated by passengers. These awards give us huge momentum as we continue our ambitious expansion plans in Europe, the US and beyond.”

SriLankan flight goes blanket-less!

The 300-seater SriLankan flight from Doha to Katunayake has been provided with only five blankets, according to reports reaching Sri Lanka Mirror.

As a result, passengers of one flight faced severe inconvenience as there were many small children among them.

When inquired, the officials have said the blankets provided have been reduced as a cost cutting measure.

Not even the cockpit has been provided with a blanket.

Meanwhile, business class passengers of SriLankan flights are offered a plate of only 10 cashews each with the customary alcoholic drink provided to them.

This is said to be yet another cost cutting measure.

Looks more like some saboteurs at work successfully than real cost cutting effort to me.   Shocked

Thanks kith. It's a massive jump in technology. Do we have solar power cars? (I mean commercially mass productions like electric car Tesla?)

Yes, their initial and recurrent training for both ground and flying crews are far superior than most in the region.  Very Happy
(Getting almost 300 Malabaris out of the aircraft in 90 seconds is not a joke).  Very Happy
