Greg Principato In his letters, Principato stressed that, "By removing the federal government from regulating how local communities and their airports generate resources for investment in aviation infrastructure, you can do the right thing for the economy and for our nation, while also pursuing a course that is good politics all the way around." Principato's letter went on to emphasize that allowing airports more financial freedom makes great sense given the need to reduce federal spending and federal involvement in local decisions in the midst of unprecedented debt and deficit issues, the effects of a lack of investment in the nation's infrastructure, and high unemployment. Principato also expressed ACI-NA's commitment to working with the White House and Congress to ensure infrastructure investment; economic growth and job creation are realized by modernizing the way U.S. airports are regulated, reducing Washington's role and giving local communities power over their economic future.

Unsubscribe | Update Profile | Forward to a Friend Tiger Airlines Grounded Till August 1 Australian Budget Carrier Replacing CEO, Promising Refunds For the first time in Australia's history, the nation's regulators have grounded an entire airline to look into serious questions about its safety culture. The French News Service AFP reports that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) barred Tiger Airlines from operating domestic flights Saturday for a week, but has now determined it will need the rest of this month to complete its investigation into the safety issues, and the airline's response to its inquiries.
    • 4 CASA was scheduled to be in Federal Court in Melbourne on Thursday to seek the extension. Tiger Airways Australia is a subsidiary of Singapore's Tiger Airways, which has sidelined its Australian CEO, Crawford Rix, and sent group President Tony Davis to Australia from Singapore to take charge of working with CASA's investigators. Rix is reportedly out of the company effective July 31. CASA's action was triggered last week when a flight approached an airport too low, and after expressing its concern to the airline over pilot proficiency, training, fatigue and other management issues. CASA spokesman Peter Gibson said more questions were raised when investigators looked through the airline's records. AFP reports the grounding is costing Tiger the equivalent of $1.6 million a week. In an official statement, the airline says it is not opposed to CASA's review, and is refunding fares to customers through the end of the month, but remains intent on returning to service. The markets aren't so sure that will be possible. The grounding coincides with what is normally a profitable season for domestic airlines as Australian schools close for vacation. Shares in Tiger Airways Holding, the parent company, which have traded as high as $1.85 in the past year, fell this week to well under a dollar. Competitors Virgin and Qantas have both seen significant share price gains. Virgin's Sir Richard Branson says he hopes his smaller rival can survive. "I think it's going to be tough to come back from that, but obviously for the sake of all the staff let's hope they manage to get their act together and be back in a month's time." But Gibson promises CASA will be thorough. "We have to make sure we fully understand the reasons why these problems have occurred -- if they are systemic problems, problems with process and problems with safety systems."

    • 5 AVIATION NEWS AVIATION WEEK -- FAA Bulletin News and information from AVIATION WEEK July 7, 2011 ================================================================== Welcome Amidee Azizan to AVIATION WEEK's FAA Bulletin. Each week, you'll receive a snapshot of the events and issues driving the global FAA industry. ----------------------------------------------------------------- REGISTER FOR FREE AVIATION WEEK BULLETINS http://aviationweek.com/email_bulletin/registration_redesi FAA Celebrates 75th Anniversary Of Air Traffic Control Service Began With 15 Employees In Three Control Centers The FAA on Wednesday marked the 75th anniversary of federal air traffic control as American aviation experiences its safest period ever. Since its inception with 15 workers operating in just three control centers in 1936, the agency has become a world leader, pioneering safety improvements and developing new technology to speed up flights, save fuel and improve safety. "The United States has the safest air transportation system in the world. But as the last 75 years show, we will never stop working to make our system even safer," said Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. "As a pilot, I am in awe of the aviation safety and technological advancements that have been made in the last 75 years," said FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt. "NextGen represents the next milestone in aviation innovation. The FAA is committed to transforming our national airspace system so passengers can reach their destinations even more safely and more efficiently than they do today."
    • 6 Federal air traffic control began on July 6, 1936, when the Bureau of Air Commerce took over the operation of the first airway traffic control centers at Newark, N.J., Chicago and Cleveland. Faced with a growing demand for air travel, the 15 employees who made up the original group of controllers took radio position reports from pilots to plot the progress of each flight, providing no separation services. At the time, the fastest plane in the commercial fleet was the Douglas DC-3, which could fly coast-to-coast in about 17 hours while carrying 21 passengers. Since then, the air traffic system has expanded from three control centers to include 131 federal stand-alone airport traffic control towers, 132 towers for terminal area approach control, 29 stand-alone terminal radar approach controls and 21 en route traffic control centers. The number of controllers has grown from 15 to more than 15,000, a workforce that handles an average of 50,000 flights each day. The DC-3 has given way to jet aircraft that can carry hundreds of passengers and fly from New York to Los Angeles in about five hours. The FAA continues to pioneer new technologies that will make air traffic control safer and more efficient. The Next Generation Air Transportation System, or NextGen, will transform air traffic control in the U.S. from a system of ground-based radars to one based on satellites. In parts of the country, controllers already are beginning to track aircraft via satellites with a state-of-the-art system called Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast, or ADS-B. ADS-B will be available nationwide in 2013 and will enable more direct routes, saving time and money while also lowering the industry's environmental footprint. This month the FAA will celebrate the 75th anniversary of federal air traffic control by highlighting advancements in air traffic controller training, NextGen, how the FAA handles convective summer weather and aviation infrastructure improvements.

    • 14 Asia News PM launches mega low-cost terminal project By MAZWIN NIK ANIS mazwin@thestar.com.my SEPANG: The opening of the world’s first mega terminal for low-cost carriers – to be known as KLIA2 – will mark the nation’s growth and leadership in aviation not only in this region but also the world, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri NajibRazak. He said considering the exponential traffic growth in the low-cost sector, the Government had prioritised the immediate development of a terminal that would meet low-cost travel needs for the next 10 to 15 years. The plan was a variation of the original KLIA Master Plan as low-cost travel and its extraordinary boom was not previously envisioned or anticipated. “Fortunately, we were able to accommodate the low-cost carriers’ needs for the past few years at the current Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT),” Najib said at the project’s ground- breaking ceremony here yesterday. “However, the time has come to revolutionise the airport terminal design for low-cost carriers and passengers in order to stay ahead of competition.” The new low-cost carrier terminal is being built to handle 30 million passengers per year initially and has the flexibility to allow for expansion to cater for future growth and changes to the operational models of aircraft. Landmark project: Najib signing a plaque at the ceremony in Sepang yesterday. With him are (from right) Kong, Malaysia Airports Berhad managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad and chairman Tan Sri DatukDrAris Othman. Located 2km from the current Main Terminal building, KLIA2 will allow for easy inter- terminal transfer and better connectivity between the two.
    • 15 The Prime Minister said KLIA2, targeted to be completed in April 2012, was expected to boost the nation’s tourism industry by attracting more airlines and visitors. He added that the facility would increase tourism revenue from RM53bil last year to RM168bil in 2020. In his opening speech, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the new LCCT would meet passengers’ expectations with built-in walkways, bigger space per passenger and total separation between arrival and departing passengers for improved security. He added that the new terminal would have an integrated transport hub, connecting various modes of transportation such as taxis, buses and the Express Rail Link (ERL) service. Kong said the aviation industry was undergoing a paradigm shift with the accelerating growth of low-cost carriers defining the future of air travel, especially in Asia.
    • 16 MAHB IS GOING MALDIVES I got this from Bernama. It looks like MAHB is going places. Good for those who are going to join MAHB - more chances to go overseas providing aviation services and expertise. MAHB is surely going international exporting its services. June 25, 2010 19:20 PM MAHB Wins Maldives' Airport Contract Via Consortium KUALA LUMPUR, June 25 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has won a bid to build, operate, modernise and expand Maldives' main airport, the Male International Airport, via its GMR-MAHB consortium. In a statment here today, MAHB said it has been successfully partnering with the GMR Group since 2002, a Bangalore-based global infrastructure major with interests in airports, energy, highways and urban infrastructure. The airport operator said the Male International Airport was situated on the Huhule Island on the politically stable archipelagpo, and was one of the fastest growing airports in the region. MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said the win signified an important milestone for a Malaysian firm leading with its expertise in the international market. The bid was participated by two other parties, namely the Aeroport De Paris, France-TAV, Turkey consortium, and the Zurich Airport-GVK consortium. With the project, MAHB now has four overseas airports in its portfolio, including the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad, Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, and Istanbul SabihaGokcen International Airport in Turkey. -- BERNAMA
    • 17 AIRASIA X'S AGGRESSIVE COMPETITION AGAINST MAS' ROUTES. I got this from MAS CEO's blog. TgAzmil, IdrisJala's successor. This is his counter to AirAsia X's aggressive competition against MAS' routes. In life, if we want to succeed we must have an opinion on many things in life or better correct opinion, lest we wont change for the better. Opinion is the basis of our goals, strategies and implementation process. I always believe a action taken wrong is better than no action taken at all. Now the following is my opinion on the TgAzmil blog:- Sorry MAS CEO, in the era of consumerism, you have to give the consumers the right to decide which airline they want to fly with. So if they decide to fly with Air Asia because they believe Air Asia given them value for money, then you shouldn't stop them through government intervention. In US this is illegal as there is a law called Anti Thrust Law. No one is allowed to monopolise an industry there. By preventing Air Asia from competiting against MAS you are actually asking for monopolistic right which is also not encouraged by WTO charter. It is akin to Hilton Hotel in KL asking government to stop hotels like Sri Malaysia from existing. You have to learn to compete because sooner or later there will more airlines being established whether you like it or not. Under the open sky policy that is being propagated by AFTA you will have to compete with other airlines even if Air Asia does not exist, once this open sky policy is implemented. Only the best will survive in this competitive world. And is good for the consumers. What you could do is to continue improving your services and cut costs (good buying and good human capital) so that MAS can become the darling of five-star airlines just like SIA. (SIA don't even have a domestic market yet they could churn out three times more revenues than MAS). You could also play the game of Air Asia, that is establish a subsidiary for a low cost carrier and with a different brand name and fight Air Asia in their own game. While MAS maintain their 5 -star market segment your LC subsidiary fights Air Asia with their own game in the LC segment. You can make use of Fire Fly to do this as it is already in operations. Like I always say only those who are fittest will survive. good for the consumers. And good for MAS too as you will learn to improve and not sit on your laurels and grow to greater heights . All the best.
    • 18 MY OPINIONON AIRASIA X'S AGGRESSIVE COMPETITION AGAINST MAS' ROUTES. rom my point of view, AirAsiasuppose tobuild their own goal and have their own strategy in the organization to compete any airlines not even in Malaysia but all over the world. For long term period, AirAsia will be suffered from bankruptcy due to poor of Routes,Financial and even long term forecasting planning. I’m very sure, MAS is now contribute more revenues for our country compare to AirAsia. F
