Mobiles set to debut on Australian airways Your travel needs end here

The communications watchdog in Australia [ Images ] has given the green light for travellers to use their mobiles during flights.

The new ruling by the Australian Communications and Media Authority will bring Australia into line with other countries that have allowed fliers to text, check email and use data during flights.

The ACMA consulted the move with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, which has raised no technical objections to the new arrangements.

"The Australian Communications and Media Authority has finalised radio communications licensing arrangements to facilitate mobile communication services on aircraft," the Sydney [ Images ] Morning Herald quoted ACMA chairman Chris Chapman as saying.

"The licensing arrangements will allow airlines to deploy mobile communication services on their aircraft through special on-board systems, should they choose to do so.

"In developing these arrangements, the ACMA was conscious of the need for harmonisation with aviation safety regulations and the protection of terrestrial communications networks from interference," Chapman stated.

In its submission to ACMA, Telstra said the proposed licensing scheme would artificially restrict mobile traffic to one provider aboard each aircraft and deny Australian consumers access to the country's highly competitive mobile market.

"We would welcome the ACMA and the airlines allowing people to use their mobile devices in flight, but consumers should not be restricted to any one technology or provider," Telstra said.

Vodafone Hutchison Australia, in its submissions, also cited the importance of non-exclusive agreements for carriers.

The ACCC advised that where a genuine safety issue exists, the use of the onboard system to force the handsets to connect only to the onboard base station wouldn't constitute anti-competitive behaviour.

Kingfisher Fly five star Your travel needs end here

KFA reports an EBITDA profit of 127 Cr with a significant improvement in overall operations.
Mumbai, Tuesday, 22 July 2010:The Aviation Industry has experienced a strong resurgence of domestic demand in Apr-Jun ’10. Kingfisher has capitalized on this growth and has seen a 12 percentage points increase in load factors to 81% from 69%, and a 5% improvement in yields over the same quarter last year.

The increase in loads and yields, coupled with several cost reduction initiatives has led Kingfisher to generate a substantial operating profit of Rs. 127 Cr which is an improvement of Rs. 198 Cr over Apr-Jun’09.

The loss after tax for the year has reduced by Rs 50 Cr (Rs 187 Cr vs. Rs 237 Cr in the previous year).

This performance has been delivered despite an extraordinary cost impact of more than Rs 35 Cr due to the uncontrollable grounding of aircraft.
Q1 FY11 Performance
• On an overall basis, the Company has incurred an EBITDA profit of Rs. 127 Cr in Q1 FY 11 vs. a loss of Rs 71 Cr during the same period of the previous year – an improvement of Rs. 198 Cr.
• The Company posted a positive 22% EBITDAR margin of Rs. 367 Cr as against a profit of Rs. 226 Cr in the corresponding quarter of the previous financial year- an improvement of Rs. 141 Cr.
• EBITDA profit of Rs 177 Cr (despite accounting for Rs. 35 Cr costs of grounded aircrafts) for its domestic operations, compared to a profit of Rs. 76 Cr in the same period of the previous year - an improvement of Rs. 101 Cr. The domestic EBITDA margin also improved from 6% to 13%
• This performance was despite intense competition and a 14% reduction in KFA capacity in terms of seats offered.
• Kingfisher Airlines continues to remain “India’s favorite airline” and the only five star rated airline in India (as per Skytrax) and the single largest carrier in the domestic industry with a market share of 21.1% in Q1 FY 2011.

New Check-in Timings Your travel needs end here

Mumbai, Tuesday, 20 July 2010: Kingfisher Airlines update - With effect from midnight today, the check-in counters for all domestic flights of Kingfisher Airlines departing from the 6 cities of Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Hyderabad & Chennai will now close 40 minutes before departure. This effectively means that our check-in counters will close 10 minutes earlier than they used to.

Further, the boarding gates for our domestic flights departing from all the above 6 airports will close 15 minutes before the time of departure.

It is therefore imperative that that all guests arrive at the airport well in time to check-in, proceed for security checks and arrive at their boarding gate in time. All our guests are being notified immediately of this change via sms messages from our call centres and via e-mails, including via our travel trade partners.

This change has been necessitated to minimize operational disruptions / guest inconvenience while ensuring compliance with the directions and procedures specified in Air Transport Circular 10 of 2009 issued by the DGCA and which is being implemented by DGCA now.

Airport Safety Tips in India Your travel needs end here

Airport Safety Tips in India

Airports in India can be extremely chaotic, which provides a perfect opportunity for touts, thieves and conmen. As you would anyway, don't trust strangers and stay alert. Also remember a few safety tips.

Never leave your luggage, briefcase or other items unattended. When you set them down, place them between your feet or against your leg.
Avoid currency exchange windows if possible or exchange only a small amount. Do not let others see how much currency you are carrying.
Be wary of imposter porters or guides. Assure they are properly uniformed or identified.
Pre-paid taxis and auto rickshaws (3 wheelers) are available from the airport. Use only authorized, properly identified taxis. If you have a lot of luggage, it is advisable to pre-book a private car transfer with your travel representative.
Assure all your baggage is placed inside the taxi trunk and the lid is closed before entering the taxi.
Don't accept an offer to share a taxi to your hotel unless you know the individual.
Beware of touts offering cheap accommodation or deals. They are usually cheats and conmen.

Things to Remember Before Leaving to India - Travel Tips

It is important to make a mental checklist of important things to do before taking off. These are:

Flights to India are usually booked to capacity so it's recommended to call the airline you are flying on at least 72 hrs prior to departure time and reconfirm your departure with them.
Photocopy your passport, traveler's cheques, credit cards, itinerary and airline tickets. Carry one copy with you and leave one copy and your overseas contact details with a person in your home city. In case you lose any valuable documents, you'll have a record and know whom to call.
Carry an international driving license. Even if you're not planning to drive, it serves as a form of identification.
Put identification tags with your name, address and phone number on all of your baggage. It is advisable to use details of your workplace, if possible.
Since most Indian airports are rather crowded, plan ahead and pre-arrange transfers, hotel accommodation and other requirements with your travel representative so you'll have one less thing to worry about upon arrival.

Security in Indian Airports - Travel Tips to India

Heightened security measures at airports have increased the time needed at the airport and the variety of security measures you may encounter. The following tips will help smooth the process:

Allow plenty of extra time by being at the airport at least two hours before departure to catch your flight especially if traveling with children or senior citizens.
You will be required to produce your travel documents at different points through your journey so remember to keep them easily accessible at all times.
Avoid wearing clothing, jewelry, or other accessories that contain metal when traveling. Be aware that any metal detected at the security checkpoint must be identified. If you set off the alarm, you will be required to undergo a secondary screening, including a pat-down inspection.
Take your laptop computer out of its carry case and place it in the bin separate from the carrying case.
Outer coats and jackets must go through the X-ray machine for inspection. Pack these in your carry-on baggage when possible.
Wear shoes that can be taken off and put back on relatively easily since you will have to remove them every time you go through security inspection.

Pakistan International airlines PIA Your travel needs end here

Birth of a Nation, Birth of an Airline
Air transport has probably never been more important to the development of a new nation than in the case of Pakistan. In June 1946, when Pakistan was still in the offing, Mr. Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the Founder of the upcoming nation, instructed Mr. M.A. Ispahani, a leading industrialist, to set up a national airline, on a priority basis. With his singular vision and foresight, Mr. Jinnah realized that with the formation of the two wings of Pakistan, separated by 1100 miles, a swift and efficient mode of transport was imperative.
Orient Airways Takes to the Skies
On 23rd October 1946, a new airline was born. Initially registered as a pilot project in Calcutta, Orient Airways Ltd. had at its helm Mr. M.A. Ispahani as Chairman and Air Vice Marshal O.K. Carter as General Manager. The new carrier's base remained in Calcutta and an operating license was obtained in May 1947.
Four Douglas DC-3s were purchased from Tempo of Texas in February 1947 and operations commenced on 4th June 1947. The designated route for Orient Airways was Calcutta-Akyab-Rangoon, which also happened to be the first post-war international sector to be flown by an airline registered in India. Within two months of Orient Airways' operational beginnings, Pakistan was born. The birth of a new nation generated one of the largest transfers of population in the history of mankind.
Orient Airways, along with the help of BOAC aircraft which had been chartered by the Government of Pakistan, started relief operations and transportation of people between Delhi and Karachi, the two capitals. Subsequently, Orient Airways transferred its base to Pakistan and established a vital link between Karachi and Dacca, the two capitals of the two wings of Pakistan. With a skeleton fleet of just two DC-3s, three crew members, and twelve mechanics, Orient Airways launched its scheduled operations in a fairy-tale manner. The initial routes were Karachi-Lahore-Peshawar, Karachi-Quetta-Lahore and Karachi-Delhi Calcutta-Dacca. By the end of 1949, Orient Airways had acquired 10 DC-3s and 3 Convair 240s which were operated on these routes. In 1950, it had become increasingly apparent that additional capacity would have to be inducted to cater to the growing needs of the sub-continent.
A New National Flag Carrier for Pakistan
Orient Airways was a privately owned company, with limited capital and resources. It could not be expected to grow and expand independently. It was then that the Government of Pakistan decided to form a state-owned airline and invited Orient Airways to merge with it. The outcome of the merger was the birth of a new airline, through PIAC Ordinance 1955 on January 10, 1955.
In addition to transport activities, Orient Airways had established the nucleus of overhaul and maintenance facilities and acquired trained pilots, engineers and technicians, measures which proved to be a great asset for PIA during its teething phase.
PIA’s First International Service
The year 1955 also marked the inauguration of the fledgling airline's first scheduled international service - to the glittering, glitzy capital city of London, via Cairo and Rome. Initially, there was much criticism, as the public could not comprehend or justify the need to operate an international route when, in their opinion, other projects vital for a developing country should have been given a higher priority. However, PIA's focus was, and continues to be, to serve the Pakistani community at large. The provision of transportation to expatriates has remained one of the foremost priorities of the national airline. Moreover, PIA earned substantial foreign exchange through international services, which it invested in the purchase of aircraft and spare parts, as fleet expansion was a grave necessity for the airline.
New Planes, New Directions, New Management
In 1956, orders were placed for two Super Constellations and five Viscounts which were to be delivered in 1959. At this juncture, PIA possessed a small fleet which comprised of Convairs, Viscounts, Super Constellations and DC-3s.
While Mr. M.A. Ispahani was the first Chairman of the new dynamic airline; it was the first Managing Director of PIA, Mr. Zafar-ul-Ahsan, who in his 4 year tenure, got the ball truly rolling and set the shape of things to come. The PIA Head Office building at Karachi Airport, which houses all the major departments of the airline, was the brain-child of Mr. Zafar-ul- Ahsan. In fact, on his departure from the airline, the employees presented him with a silver replica of the building with the caption, "The House You Built".
In 1959, the Government of Pakistan appointed Air Commodore Nur Khan as the Managing Director of PIA. With his visionary leadership, PIA 'took off' and within a short span of 6 years, gained the stature and status of one of the world's frontline carriers. In aviation circles, this period has often been referred to as the "golden years of PIA".
Development, expansion, and growth were keywords that the new management was committed to. In March 1960, PIA launched its first Boeing 707 jet service on the London-Karachi-Dacca, route which later proved to be very successful. This trail-blazing accomplishment resulted in PIA becoming the first Asian Airline to operate a jet aircraft, setting trends for the future. In 1961, the airline took on the mammoth task of initiating a cross-Atlantic service from Karachi to New York. By this time, PIA had placed orders for more new aircraft, which included Fokker F-27s, Boeing 720Bs and Sikorsky helicopters. Helicopter services in East Pakistan had gained momentum by 1962 and expanded to include Sylhet, Chittagong, Dacca, Comilla and Ishurdi. PIA's helicopter services carried over 70,000 passengers during the first year of operation. At the time, it was regarded as a stellar operation, equal to any other in the world. Unfortunately, due to two mishaps, the service was discontinued in 1966.
Historic Firsts and Unbroken Records
In 1962, finding the upper winds forecast favorable, PIA set out to break the record for the fastest flight between London and Karachi. With representatives of FAI (Federation Aeronautique International) on board to monitor the official timings, PIA completed the flight in 6 hours, 43 minutes, 51 seconds, a record which remains unbroken to this day.
In 1964, PIA achieved another historic first, regarded as a major milestones in the chequered history of the airline. On 29th April, 1964, with a Boeing 720B, PIA earned the distinction of becoming the first airline from a non-communist country to fly into the People’s Republic of China. PIA's first service to China was from Karachi to Shanghai via Canton. In 1964-65, PIA expanded its fleet further with the addition of a fourth Boeing 720B and two Fokker F-27s. Serious development had become a reality and the PIA team continued to move ahead with ambitious plans and goals for the national flag carrier.
A collective pride and a joyous buoyancy was pervasive within the PIA family. Riding high on the crest of success, PIA became a household name in Pakistan in the mid sixties. The war between India and Pakistan, during 1965, further tested the national airline. PIA played a major role in providing logistical support to the Armed Forces by operating special flights using Boeings, Super Constellations, and Viscounts. The Founder of the Nation, Mr. Jinnah had predicted that the Pakistan Airforce would need the support of a civil airline in special circumstances, and this came into evidence during the war.
In 1966, a system of feeder services linking eight new points in West Pakistan was introduced. By this time, the airline's Viscounts were proving inadequate owing to traffic growth, and had to be replaced by Tridents. The airline continued up the growth curve, receiving two Fokker F-27s, two Boeing 707s and one Trident in the following year.
Style, Glamour, and Charisma
Around this time, the airline saw a change in the top slot. Air Vice Marshal, Asghar Khan took over the reigns of PIA for a tenure of 3 years. A number of highpoints are attributed to this period. The most colourful, if not the most significant, occurrence for PIA was the introduction of a new air-hostesses' uniform designed by none other than the renowned French designer, Pierre Cardin. Taking the aviation world by storm, this move, more than any other single factor, imprinted PIA's name on the international market. The uniforms were an instant hit, both at home and abroad.
Safety Management System at PIA
PIA is the first airline to get certified (initial certification) on Safety Management System (SMS) by Civil Aviation Authority CAA - Pakistan. CAA Air Navigation Order (ANO 91.0032 issued in September 2008) binds all airlines operating in Pakistan to have SMS. Well before the issuance of this ANO, PIA initiated SMS awareness and implementation in July 2008. PIA awarded initial certification on SMS in 27th February 2009 by CAA.
The Pursuit of Excellence Through Technology and Quality Control
Not content with a number of historic firsts under its belt, PIA made history yet again, by installing Pakistan's first computer, an IBM1401, in 1967. PIA's first Engine Overhaul Shop, located near the Head Office building, was also completed and commissioned around this time. The Ground Training School (GTS) now known as the PIA Training Centre, was first conceived and developed during 1961-62. Interestingly, training was initially imparted in the T-shaped building which has now become the PIA Dispensary, close to the Head Office building.
Besides visible development and growth in traffic and revenues in the sixties, PIA added additional destinations, new equipment, and cutting-edge technology to support its ever expanding operations. A new Jet Hangar for Boeings with a supporting airframe overhaul shop was completed and commissioned in 1968.
In 1970, PIA set up its own Flight Kitchen in Karachi, which caters, even today, to the national airline as well as other carriers. Over the years, with the airline's expansion and increased capacity, the need for a second Flight Kitchen became imperative.
Ushering In a New Era of Growth and Development
PIA heralded the nineties by donning a bright new corporate identity. Old-timers may remember the flutter that the earlier green and gold livery had created when it was first introduced in 1974. However, in keeping with the changing times, PIA introduced a smart, sporty 90's look. The familiar PIA green was reinforced with moss green and pale blue stripes were incorporated into the new corporate identity. The stripes, a universal symbol of sport, highlighted PIA's active participation and sponsorship of a diverse range of national games. PIA's players have always been at the forefront of Pakistani Cricket, Hockey, Squash, Football, Chess, Bridge, Polo and Table-Tennis teams. The nineties also saw the expansion of PIA's massive Haj and Umrah operations to Pakistan's smaller cities, in addition to the major cities of Islamabad, Peshawar, Lahore, Quetta and Karachi.
PIA's growth continues unabated and the airline now operates globally, covering the entire domestic landscape and international destinations spread over 4 continents.
Impressive statistics for a comparatively young airline? Since its inception in 1955, PIA has indeed, come a long way.
