          Ethiopia Airlines crash: Which countries have grounded the 737 Max 8?      Cache   Translate Page      

A growing number of airlines around the world have grounded their Boeing 737 Max 8 jets following the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane that killed 157 people on Sunday. Here is a list of other countries that have grounded the aircraft so far: UK The UK’s Civil Aviation Authority has banned any commercial passenger flights by Boeing 737 Max aircraft from “arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace”. In a statement, the CAA said: “The UK Civil Aviation Authority has been closely monitoring the situation, however, as we do not currently have sufficient information from the flight data recorder we have, as a precautionary measure, issued instructions to stop any commercial passenger flights from any operator arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace. “The UK Civil Aviation Authority’s safety directive will be in place until further notice. “We remain in close contact with the European Aviation Safety Agency and industry regulators globally.” Tui Airways, which has the only five 737 Max 8 aircraft operated by a UK-based airline and was due to begin flying a sixth later this week, said in response to the CAA announcement that other aircraft would be used to transport passengers who were due to fly in the jets. The statement said: “TUI Airways can confirm that all 737 MAX 8 aircraft currently operating in the UK have been grounded following the decision from the UK regulatory authorities today. “Any customers due to fly home today on a 737 MAX 8 from their holiday will be flown back on another aircraft. “Customers due to travel in the coming days will also travel on holiday as planned on other aircraft. “The safety and well-being of our customers and staff has remained our primary concern.” Ethiopia A spokesman for Ethiopian Airlines says it will ground its remaining four Max 8 jets as an “extra safety precaution” while it investigates Sunday’s deadly crash. Asrat Begashaw said investigations and the search for bodies and aircraft debris will continue. The airline is awaiting the delivery of 25 more Max 8 jets. Brazil Brazil’s Gol Airlines has suspended the use of 121 Max 8 jets. The airline said it is following the investigation of the Max 8 closely and hopes to return the aircraft to use as soon as possible. Gol said it has made nearly 3,000 flights with the Max 8, which went into service last June, with “total security and efficiency”. Cayman Islands Cayman Airways, a Caribbean carrier, said it stopped using its two Max 8 jets starting on Monday. President and CEO Fabian Whorms said the airline is committed to “putting the safety of our passengers and crew first”. Mr Whorms said the move will cause changes to flight schedules. Cayman is the flag carrier of Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory. It received its first Max 8 in November and its second earlier this month. China China has 96 Max 8 jets in service, belonging to carriers such as Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines. The civilian aviation authority directed the planes to be grounded indefinitely on Monday. It said the order was “taken in line with the management principle of zero tolerance for security risks”. There were eight Chinese citizens on the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed shortly after taking off on Sunday. The authority said it will consult the US Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing before deciding when to lift the ban. India India’s Jet Airways says it is “in contact with the manufacturer” of Max 8 jets and has grounded five of them starting on Monday. Indian airline SpiceJet also uses the aircraft, but it is unclear if those planes are grounded. On Monday, India’s aviation watchdog ordered a safety assessment of the aircraft. It also issued safety instructions for flying the Max 8 jet. Indonesia Indonesia says it will temporarily ground Max 8 jets to inspect their airworthiness. Director general of Air Transportation Polana B Pramesti said the move was made to ensure flight safety. A Lion Air model of the same plane crashed in Indonesia in October. Indonesian airlines operate 11 Max 8 jets. Lion Air, which owns 10 of them, said it will try to minimise the impact of the decision on operations. The other Max 8 jet belongs to national carrier Garuda. Mexico Mexican airline Aeromexico has suspended flights of its six Max 8 jets after the crash in Ethiopia. Aeromexico said it “fully” trusts the safety of its fleet but ordered the grounding to ensure “the safety of its operations and the peace of mind of its customers”. It said other planes will take over the routes usually flown by the Max 8. Singapore Singapore has temporarily banned Max 8 jets — and other models in the Max range — from entering and leaving the country. The civil aviation authority said it was “closely monitoring the situation” and the ban will be “reviewed as relevant safety information becomes available”. It added that it was in close communication with the FAA, Boeing and other aviation authorities. SilkAir, a regional carrier owned by Singapore Airlines, has six Max 8 jets. It said the ban “will have an impact on some of the airline’s flight schedules”. The authority said flights to Singapore by China Southern Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, Shandong Airlines and Thai Lion Air will also be affected. South Korea An Eastar Jet official said that the planes will be replaced by Boeing 737-800 planes from Wednesday on routes to Japan and Thailand. She said the airline has not found any problems, but is voluntarily grounding Boeing 737 Max 8s in a response to customer concerns. She says the planes will not be used until the completion of a government safety review on the aircraft. An official from South Korea’s Transportation Ministry says it has yet to find any problems from safety reviews on Eastar’s planes that started on Monday. Australia Australia has suspended all flights into or out of the country by Boeing 737 Max aircraft. Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority says no Australian airlines operate the aircraft type, but two foreign airlines — SilkAir and Fiji Airways — fly them to Australia. Director of aviation safety, Shane Carmody, says that because of the two accidents, the temporary suspension of Boeing 737 Max operations is in the best interest of safety.

          North Korea rocket launch ‘would be catastrophe for diplomacy’      Cache   Translate Page      

North Korea using a possible rocket launch as leverage in negotiations with the US would be catastrophic for global diplomacy, a South Korean presidential adviser has said. US-based websites recently released satellite photographs indicating North Korea has restored structures at its long-range rocket launch facility that it dismantled last year at the start of diplomacy with the United States. Other satellite images show increased vehicle activities at a separate North Korean facility used to manufacture missiles, and rockets for satellite launches. Some experts say these suggest North Korea may be assembling a long-range rocket to carry out a banned satellite launch in the wake of last month’s North Korea-US summit in Hanoi that ended without any agreement. Moon Chung-in, a retired university professor who is now a special adviser to President Moon Jae-in, told a panel discussion that North Korea using a rocket launch or other nuclear activities as leverage in negotiations would be a “bad move”. Mr Moon said such a North Korean move could eventually cause a “catastrophic” consequence or a “big disaster” in the US-North Korea diplomacy. “I wonder if North Korea should avoid” such an action, Mr Moon said. He said both North Korea and the US must restrain themselves to keep diplomacy alive and start unofficial contacts to resume talks. He said the Hanoi summit showed how “difficult” and “painful” it would be to achieve de-nuclearisation on the Korean Peninsula. The Hanoi summit fell apart due to disputes over how many sanctions reliefs North Korea could win in return for limited nuclear disarmament steps. Washington and Pyongyang accuse each other of causing the summit’s breakdown, but both sides have avoided harsh criticism against each other and expressed hopes for future negotiations. No official meeting between the countries has yet to be publicly scheduled. The February 27-28 summit was the second summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump since they met for the first time in Singapore last June.

          Kαθηλώνονται στο έδαφος όλα τα Boeing 737 Max 8 στην Ευρωπαϊκή Ενωση      Cache   Translate Page      

Η Υπηρεσία Ασφάλειας Πτήσεων της Ευρωπαϊκής Ενωσης αποφάσισε να καθηλώσει στο έδαφος όλα τα αεροσκάφη τύπου Boeing 737 Max, όπως μετέδωσε σε μία σύντομη είδηση με την ένδειξη «επείγον» το πρακτορείο Reuters.

To διεθνές πρακτορείο μεταδίδει ταυτόχρονα, ότι μετά την Βρετανία, η Γερμανία και η Γαλλία προσχωρούν στην ομάδα των χωρών που διακόπτουν τις πτήσεις του συγκεκριμένου τύπου αεροσκάφους, μετά το τραγικό δυστύχημα στην Αιθιοπία με θύματα 157 επιβάτες. 

Η αμερικανική εταιρεία Boeing αντέδρασε δηλώνοντας ότι κατανοεί τις αποφάσεις αυτές, ωστόσο διατηρεί «απόλυτη εμπιστοσύνη» στις προδιαγραφές ασφαλείας του 737 Μax.

Η τραγωδία στην Αιθιοπία ήταν η δεύτερη μέσα σε πέντε μήνες με πτώση του ίδιου τύπου αεροσκάφους, αφού προηγήθηκε δυστύχημα υπό ανάλογες συνθήκες στην Ινδονησία, όπου έχασαν τη ζωή τους 189 επιβάτες πτήσης της Lion Air.

 

Μπαράζ αποφάσεων για διακοπή πτήσεων του 737 Max 

Η συντριβή του 737 Max 8 της Ethiopian Airlines κοντά στην Αντίς Αμπέμπα, τέσσερις μήνες μετά από παρόμοιο δυστύχημα στο ίδιο μοντέλο αεροσκάφους της Lion Air στη Ινδονησία, οδήγησε πολλές χώρες και εταιρείες να καθηλώσουν στο έδαφος αυτό το αεροσκάφος μεσαίων αποστάσεων.

 

Οι χώρες που απαγορεύουν στις εταιρείες τους να πετούν τα Boeing 737 Max 8

Αυστρία

Κλείνει από τα μεσάνυχτα ο εναέριος χώρος της Αυστρίας για αεροσκάφη τύπου Boeing 737 Max 8, όπως ανακοίνωσε απόψε το αυστριακό υπουργείο Συγκοινωνιών στη Βιέννη.

Σύμφωνα με την ανακοίνωση, την σχετική απόφαση έλαβε νωρίτερα ο υπουργός Συγκοινωνιών της χώρας Νόρμπερτ Χόφερ, ενώ ανάλογες αποφάσεις, για κλείσιμο του εθνικού εναερίου χώρου τους, είχαν προηγηθεί από τη Γαλλία, τη Γερμανία, την Ιρλανδία, την Ιταλία, την Ολλανδία και τη Βρετανία, οι οποίες έκλεισαν πλήρως τον εναέριο χώρο τους για αυτόν τον τύπο αεροσκαφών.

Ο Αυστριακός υπουργός Συγκοινωνιών, στο περιθώριο συνέντευξης Τύπου το μεσημέρι και απαντώντας σε σχετικές ερωτήσεις, είχε παραπέμψει εκ νέου στην αρμοδιότητα της EASA, επισημαίνοντας πως εν τούτοις στην Αυστρία ελέγχεται συγκεκριμένα πάντα κάθε επιμέρους αεροσκάφος.

Τουρκία

Η Τουρκία ανέστειλε τις πτήσεις των αεροσκαφών Boeing 737 Max 8 και 9 ως «προληπτικό μέτρο», γνωστοποίησαν σήμερα αξιωματούχοι. Σε μια ανακοίνωση, το υπουργείο Μεταφορών και Υποδομών τονίζει ότι τα δύο μοντέλα αεροσκαφών ενεπλάκησαν σε δύο διαφορετικά δυστυχήματα τους τελευταίους πέντε μήνες.

Η απόφαση αναστολής θα εφαρμοστεί μέχρι νεωτέρας, προστίθεται στην ανακοίνωση. Από την πλευρά του, ο τουρκικός αερομεταφορέας Turkish Airlines ανακοίνωσε ότι σταμάτησε τις πτήσεις των 12 αεροσκαφών τύπου Boeing 737 Max.

Ο Μπιλάλ Εκσί, ο διευθύνων σύμβουλος της εταιρείας, αναφέρει σε ένα tweet ότι τα αεροσκάφη θα αποσυρθούν από τις εμπορικές πτήσεις από τη 13η Μαρτίου.

Κίνα

Η Κινεζική Υπηρεσία Αεροπορίας ζήτησε από τις κινεζικές αεροπορικές εταιρείες να διακόψουν τις πτήσεις των Boeing 737 Max 8 μέχρι να υπάρξει επιβεβαίωση από τις αμερικανικές αρχές και την Boeing ότι έχουν ληφθεί μέτρα που διασφαλίζουν την αποτελεσματικότητα και την ασφάλεια των πτήσεων.

Μεταξύ των κινεζικών εταιρειών που διαθέτουν αυτό το μοντέλο αεροσκάφους είναι οι Air China, Hainan Airlines και Shanghai Airlines.

Ινδονησία

Οι ινδονησιακές αρχές αποφάσισαν να απαγορεύσουν προσωρινά τις πτήσεις των αεροσκαφών αυτών που ανήκουν στις εταιρείες Lion Air και Garuda.

Νότια Κορέα

Το υπουργείο Μεταφορών ανακοίνωσε την καθήλωση των αεροσκαφών της Easter μέχρι την πραγματοποίηση των αναγκαίων ελέγχων.

Μογγολία

Οι αρχές απαγόρευσαν την πτήση του 737 MAX 8 της Mongolian Airlines

Σιγκαπούρη

Η αρχή πολιτικής αεροπορίας της Σιγκαπούρης ανακοίνωσε την Τρίτη ότι απαγορεύει μέχρι νεοτέρας την είσοδο όλων των αεροσκαφών Boeing 737 MAX στον εναέριο χώρο της πόλης-κράτους της Ασίας.

Η αρχή ενημέρωσε ότι «αναστέλλει προσωρινά» από τις 14:00 τοπική ώρα (06:00 ώρα Ελλάδας) τις πτήσεις «όλων των τύπων του μοντέλου Boeing 737 MAX προς και από τη Σιγκαπούρη», μετά «τα δύο θανατηφόρα δυστυχήματα στα οποία ενεπλάκησαν 737 MAX μέσα σε λιγότερους από πέντε μήνες», με ανακοίνωση που έδωσε στη δημοσιότητα.

Η αναστολή αφορά την εταιρεία , καθώς και τις China Southern Airlines (Κίνα), Garuda (Ινδονησία), Shandong Airlines (Κίνα) και Lion Air (Ινδονησία, και τη θυγατρική της στην Ταϊλάνδη).

Αυστραλία

Η υπηρεσία ασφάλειας πολιτικής αεροπορίας της Αυστραλίας ανέστειλε όλες τις πτήσεις από και προς την χώρα των αεροσκαφών τύπου Boeing Co 737 MAX μετά τα πολύνεκρα αεροπορικά δυστυχήματα στην Ινδονησία και την Αιθιοπία, στα οποία εμπλέκεται το τελευταίο αυτό μοντέλο της αμερικανικής εταιρείας.

«Πρόκειται για μια προσωρινή αναστολή ενώ αναμένουμε περισσότερες πληροφορίες για την αναθεώρηση των κινδύνων ασφαλείας των συνεχιζόμενων πτήσεων του Boeing 737 MAX προς και από την Αυστραλία», αναφέρει σε ανακοίνωσή του ο διευθύνων σύμβουλος της υπηρεσίας ασφαλείας πολιτικής αεροπορίας, Σέιν Καρμόντι.

Η απόφαση της Αυστραλίας επηρεάζει μόνο τις εταιρείες Singapore Airlines, Silk Air και Fiji Airways καθώς προς το παρόν καμία αυστραλιανή αεροπορική εταιρεία δεν διαθέτει αυτό το μοντέλο στον στόλο της.

Βιετνάμ

Ο διευθυντής της υπηρεσίας ασφάλειας πολιτικής αεροπορίας του Βιετνάμ, Ντιν Βιέτ Θανγκ, δήλωσε ότι οι βιετναμέζικες αεροπορικές εταιρείες δεν θα χρησιμοποιήσουν αυτό το μοντέλο αεροσκάφους της Μπόινγκ. Ο ίδιος είπε ότι η Υπηρεσία αποφάσισε να μην χορηγήσει άδεια πτήσης σε Boeing 737 Max μέχρι να αποσαφηνιστεί η αιτία του δυστυχήματος και μέχρι η Αμερικανική Ομοσπονδιακή Διοίκηση Αεροπορίας να ανακοινώσει ποια μέτρα πρόκειται να λάβει.

Οι εταιρείες που ακινητοποιούν τα αεροσκάφη τους:

Ethiopian Airlines (Αιθιοπία) , Comair (Νότια Αφρική), Cayman Airways (Νησιά Κέιμαν), Aeroméxico (Μεξικό).

Οι περισσότερες εταιρείες συνεχίζουν να χρησιμοποιούν τα Boeing 737 MAX 8

Norwegian (Νορβηγία), Air Italy (Ιταλία), Icelandair (Ισλανδία), Southwest (ΗΠΑ), American Airlines (ΗΠΑ), S7 Airlines (Ρωσία), Turkish Airlines (Τουρκία), Air Canada (Καναδάς), Westjet (Καναδάς), Aeromexico (Μεξικό), Aerolinas Argentinas (Αργεντινή), GOL Airlines (Βραζιλία), SilkAir (Σιγκαπούρη), Spicejet (Ινδία), Jet Airways (Ινδία), flydubai (Ντουμπάι), LOT (Πολωνία), TUIfly.

Να σημειωθεί ότι η υπουργός Μεταφορών των Ηνωμένων Πολιτειών Ιλέιν Τσάο ανακοίνωσε την Κυριακή ότι οι αμερικανικές ρυθμιστικές αρχές εξετάζουν «με μεγάλη προσοχή» τις μοιραίες συντριβές των δύο αεροσκαφών Boeing Co 737 MAX 8.

Η Ιλέιν Τσάο δήλωσε ότι συναντήθηκε με τον επικεφαλής της Ομοσπονδιακής Υπηρεσίας Αεροπορίας για την εξέταση τόσο της συντριβής του αεροσκάφους της Ethiopian Airlines, όσο και της συντριβής του αεροσκάφους της Lion Air τον Οκτώβριο και για την αναζήτηση της ενδεδειγμένης πορείας... «Θέλω να διαβεβαιώσω το κοινό ότι αντιμετωπίζουμε αυτά τα περιστατικά, αυτά τα δυστυχήματα, με πολύ μεγάλη σοβαρότητα», είπε.

Η εταιρεία Boeing βρέθηκε σήμερα σε δίνη μετά την συντριβή του 737 MAX 8 της Ethiopian Airlines που οδήγησε πολλές χώρες, ανάμεσά τους η Κίνα, να καθηλώσουν στο έδαφος το μοντέλο που αποτελεί την ναυαρχίδα της αμερικανικής εταιρείας.

Στο μέσον της ημέρας στην Wall Street, η μετοχή τη Boeing είχε κάπως ανακάμψει στο -7,04%, μετά την αρχική της ραγδαία πτώση στο -10%.

          Η Κίνα και η Αιθιοπία αναστέλλουν όλες τις πτήσεις με Boeing 737 MAX 8      Cache   Translate Page      

Οι αρχές της Κίνας έδωσαν εντολή στις αεροπορικές εταιρείες της χώρας να αναστείλουν τις πτήσεις των Boeing 737 MAX 8, μετά τη συντριβή αεροσκάφους του τύπου που ανήκε στην Ethiopian Airlines και εκτελούσε δρομολόγιο από την Αντίς Αμπέμπα στο Ναϊρόμπι. Ανάλογη απόφαση έλαβε λίγο μετά την Κίνα και η Αιθιοπία. 

Η αξιοποίησή τους θα επαναληφθεί αφού επιβεβαιωθεί από τις αμερικανικές αρχές και από την κατασκευάστρια εταιρεία Μπόινγκ ότι «ελήφθησαν μέτρα για να υπάρξουν αποτελεσματικές εγγυήσεις για την ασφάλεια των πτήσεων», τόνισε η κινεζική Υπηρεσία Πολιτικής Αεροπορίας σε ανακοίνωση που έδωσε στη δημοσιότητα.

Επικαλούμενη τη συντριβή της Κυριακής, καθώς και εκείνη άλλου αεροσκάφους του ίδιου τύπου που ανήκε στην ινδονησιακή εταιρεία Lion Air τον Οκτώβριο, η υπηρεσία διευκρίνισε πως η αναστολή τίθεται σε ισχύ σήμερα στις 18:00 τοπική ώρα (12:00 ώρα Ελλάδας).

Οι Αιθιοπικές Αερογραμμές αποφάσισαν επίσης να κρατήσουν στο έδαφος τα Boeing Co 737 MAX 8 του στόλου της, μία ημέρα μετά την συντριβή ενός αεροσκάφους της αυτού του τύπου με 157 επιβαίνοντες, ενημερώνει η εταιρεία με ανάρτηση στον λογαριασμό της στο Twitter.

«Μολονότι δεν γνωρίζουμε ακόμη τα αίτια της συντριβής, αποφασίσαμε να κρατήσουμε στο έδαφος τον συγκεκριμένο στόλο αεροσκαφών μας ως μέτρο επιπλέον προφυλάξεων», σημειώνει η αεροπορική εταιρεία.

Ο αιθιοπικός αερομεταφορέας διαθέτει άλλα τέσσερα 737 MAX 8, εξόν του αεροσκάφους που συνετρίβη χθες, σύμφωνα με την ιστοσελίδα παρακολούθησης τροχιάς αεροπλάνων FlightRadar 24.

Σημειώνεται πως για δεύτερη φορά μέσα σε λίγους μήνες, ένα Μπόινγκ 737 MAX 8 συνετρίβη μερικά λεπτά μετά την απογείωσή του, εξέλιξη που εγείρει νέα ερωτήματα για αυτό το αεροσκάφος, που θεωρείται πολύ σημαντικό για την αμερικανική βιομηχανία.

 

Και οι 157 επιβαίνοντες, επιβάτες και μέλη του πληρώματος, στην πτήση των Αιθιοπικών Αερογραμμών σκοτώθηκαν χθες, επιβεβαίωσε η εταιρεία.

Η νέα τραγωδία ακολούθησε εκείνη της Λάιον στα τέλη Οκτωβρίου, όταν το αεροσκάφος μεσαίων αποστάσεων της ινδονησιακής εταιρίας χαμηλού κόστους κατέπεσε στη θάλασσα ανοικτά της Ιάβας με αποτέλεσμα να χαθούν 189 ανθρώπινες ζωές.

«Δεδομένου του γεγονότος ότι τα δύο αεροπορικά δυστυχήματα στα οποία ενεπλάκησαν Μπόινγκ 737 MAX 8 που είχαν παραδοθεί πρόσφατα έγιναν αμφότερα κατά τη φάση της απογείωσης, παρουσιάζουν ορισμένες ομοιότητες», επισήμανε η κινεζική Υπηρεσία Πολιτικής Αεροπορίας αιτιολογώντας την απόφασή της.

«Θα έλθουμε σε επαφή με την αμερικανική ομοσπονδιακή υπηρεσία πολιτικής αεροπορίας (FAA) και με την Μπόινγκ. Αφού μας επιβεβαιώσουν ότι λήφθηκαν μέτρα για να υπάρξουν αποτελεσματικές εγγυήσεις για τις ασφάλεια των πτήσεων, θα ενημερώσουμε τις (κινεζικές) αεροπορικές εταιρείες ότι μπορούν να ξαναρχίσουν εμπορικές πτήσεις με τα Μπόινγκ 737 MAX 8», πρόσθεσε.

Το αεροσκάφους του τύπου αναφέρεται ορισμένες φορές με τον κωδικό 737-8.

 

Η Μπόινγκ και η ευρωπαϊκή αεροπορική βιομηχανία Airbus ανταγωνίζονται σκληρά για την κυριαρχία στην κινεζική αγορά, τη δεύτερη μεγαλύτερη του κόσμου, που αναμένεται να γίνει μέσα στη δεκαετία του 2020 η μεγαλύτερη, ξεπερνώντας αυτή των ΗΠΑ, σύμφωνα με τη Διεθνή Ένωση Αεροπορικών Μεταφορών (IATA).

Η εντολή της κινεζικής Υπηρεσίας Πολιτικής Αεροπορίας συνάδει με την πολιτική μηδενικής ανοχής που επιδεικνύει ως προς τους πιθανούς κινδύνους για την ασφάλεια των πτήσεων.

Οι κινεζικές αεροπορικές εταιρείες έχουν στους στόχους τους 96 αεροσκάφη 737 MAX.

Ένας αμερικανός αξιωματούχος, που μίλησε στο πρακτορείο ειδήσεων Ρόιτερς υπό τον όρο να μην κατονομαστεί, ανέφερε πως η Ουάσινγκτον δεν σχεδιάζει να επιβάλει το ίδιο μέτρο, διότι δεν γνωρίζει ακόμη τα αίτια των δύο δυστυχημάτων και διότι το ιστορικό της Μπόινγκ ως προς την ασφάλεια είναι καλό.

Στο μεταξύ η Singapore Airlines, μια θυγατρική της οποίας, η SilkAir, εκτελεί πτήσεις με 737 MAX, ανέφερε ότι παρακολουθεί στενά την κατάσταση αλλά τα αεροσκάφη του τύπου θα συνεχίσουν να πετούν κανονικά. Οι αρχές της Ινδονησίας ανέφεραν ότι επιτηρούν τις εταιρείες που εκτελούν πτήσεις με τα 737 MAX, ιδίως τη Λάιον και την Garuda, αλλά δεν σχεδιάζουν να καθηλώσουν τα αεροσκάφη αυτά στο έδαφος.

US will not accept 'incremental' disarmament, insists envoy to North KoreaStephen Biegun, the United States envoy to Pyongyang has stressed that Washington will not settle for the incremental disarmament of North Korea and that it is aiming for complete denuclearisation by the end of US President Donald Trump’s first term in 2021.  “We are not going to do denuclearisation incrementally,” Mr Biegun told a conference in Washington hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, in his first comments since the failed summit between Mr Trump and Kim Jong-un in Hanoi, Vietnam, last month.  Mr Biegun insisted that sanctions would not be lifted unless Pyongyang completely eliminated its nuclear weapons, stressing that it was Washington’s goal to achieve this within the current administration.  "We stand by the expectation that if we fully mobilise our resources ... we could align ourselves in a manner sufficient to achieve this in something approaching a year," he said. His statements marked a reversal from previous pronouncements emerging from the White House, with analysts warning that the hardening of the US position is an unrealistic strategy that will end in further stalemate with Pyongyang.  Stephen Biegun, the US envoy to North Korea Credit: Ed Jones/AFP Ahead of the Hanoi meeting, Mr Trump had declared that he had “no pressing schedule” on denuclearisation. “As long as there is no [missile] testing, I’m in no rush,” he said.  Mr Biegun, meanwhile, had indicated in an speech at Stanford University at the end of January that the US was willing to take a more stage by stage approach to the issue – a policy favoured by Pyongyang.  “We have communicated to our North Korean counterparts that we are prepared to pursue – simultaneously and in parallel – all of the commitments our two leaders made in their joint statement at Singapore last summer,” he said, referring to the two leaders’ first meeting in the city-state last June.  Their second summit in Hanoi in late February ended abruptly without any kind of deal.  The Hanoi summit started out well but ended abruptly with no deal Credit: Evan Vucci/AP Mr Trump said that Kim had insisted all economic sanctions were lifted before he agreed to give up his entire nuclear arsenal – a position he could not accept. “Sometimes you just have to walk,” he said. However, Ri Yong Ho, the North Korean foreign minister, countered that Pyongyang had only requested “partial relief” on sanctions enacted between 2016 and 2017, and had offered a “realistic proposal” to dismantle uranium enrichment facilities in return.   The talks ended on friendly terms, but North Korea has since shown frustration at the collapse of the summit, with the state-run Rodong Sinmun commenting that the public “are feeling regretful, blaming the US for the summit that ended without an agreement.” In a more alarming development, experts at California’s Middlebury Institute of International Studies, said last week that satellite images suggested that Pyongyang could be preparing to launch a missile or space rocket.  In response to questions about what the signs of activity at rocket launch facilities meant, Mr Biegun replied: “The short answer is: we don’t know.” He added that “the door remains open” for further negotiations. “Nothing can be agreed until everything’s agreed,” he said.  Nuclear and North Korea analysts expressed scepticism about his statements.  “Biegun: “Nothing can be agreed until everything can be agreed.” – a losing strategy,” tweeted Jenny Town, a Korea specialist at the Stimson Centre, a Washington think tank.  Others commented that the insistence on full denuclearisation before the lifting of any sanctions would create a bottleneck with Pyongyang, which has consistently argued for reciprocal concessions.  “If we don’t move off this position, we have nowhere to go,” Vipin Narang, a MIT nuclear expert, told Vox. “There’s no zone of agreement if we insist on everything — I mean everything, complete surrender — up front.”



          Now, India grounds Boeing 737-MAX aircraft      Cache   Translate Page      

New Delhi/Mumbai, March 13 (IANS) India's civil aviation regulator late on Tuesday suspended the operations of Boeing 737-800 MAX aircraft, after several other countries restrained their airlines from operating the aircraft type.

In a late night development, the Ministry of Civil Aviation tweeted: "DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) has taken the decision to ground the Boeing 737-MAX planes immediately. These planes will be grounded till appropriate modifications and safety measures are undertaken to ensure their safe operations."

"As always, passenger safety remains our top priority. We continue to consult closely with regulators around the world, airlines and aircraft manufacturers to ensure passenger safety."

Further, Commerce and Industry and Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu took to Twitter to direct officials to prepare a contingency plan to avoid inconvenience to passengers.

"While passenger safety is a zero tolerance issue, efforts are already on to minimise the impact on passenger movement as their convenience is important," he tweeted.

Globally many countries have banned the operations of the aircraft after an Ethiopian Airlines' Boeing 737-800 MAX flight crashed on Sunday killing all 157 people on board.

On Tuesday, the UK joined Singapore, Australia and a number of other countries in banning Boeing 737 Max planes from operating in or over its airspace.

In India, SpiceJet and Jet Airways operate 17 Boeing 737-800 MAX aircraft. While SpiceJet has 12 aircraft, Jet has five planes of this type.

Earlier in the day, SpiceJet in a statement said: "The Boeing 737 MAX is a highly sophisticated aircraft. It has flown hundreds of thousands of hours globally and some of the world's largest airlines are flying this aircraft."

"We are actively engaged with both Boeing and the DGCA and will continue to put safety first, as always. We have already implemented all additional precautionary measures as directed by the DGCA yesterday (Monday)."

On its part, Boeing said: "Safety is Boeing's number one priority and we have full confidence in the safety of MAX. We understand that regulatory agencies and customers have made decisions that they believe are most appropriate for their home markets. We'll continue to engage with all of them to ensure they have the information they need to have confidence in operating their fleets or returning them to service.

"It is also important to note that the Federal Aviation Administration is not mandating any further action at this time, and based on the information currently available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators."

On Monday, India's civil aviation regulator had issued fresh safety directives for operations of this make of aircraft in the country.

"The issue has been reviewed in DGCA today (Monday) along with the Indian operators covering all reported snags or defects of significant nature along with rectification action(s) taken on these aircraft," the regulator said in a statement on Monday.

"Compliance of an earlier advisory issued by DGCA post Lion Air accident on December 3, 2018 was also reviewed. During the review, it was observed that the 'Daily Defect' and 'Daily Incident' reports contained defects of routine nature and no significant concerns were observed."

Accordingly, the directive deals with the technical aspect and operational.

As per the directive, minimum experience level of crew operating B737 MAX aircraft to fly as pilot should be 1,000 hours and co-pilot 500 hours on Boeing 737 NG aircraft type.

"DGCA will continue to closely monitor the situation and may impose or take any other operational, maintenance measures, restrictions based on the information received from accident investigation agency, FAA, Boeing," the statement said.

          SpiceJet defends 737s despite global ban on its operations      Cache   Translate Page      

New Delhi/Mumbai, March 12 (IANS) Even as global civil aviation authorities banned their respective airlines from operating the Boeing 737-800 MAX aircraft, budget carrier SpiceJet on Tuesday said it was actively engaged with both Boeing and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) as it continued to operate that aircraft.

In a statement, the airline said: "The Boeing 737 MAX is a highly sophisticated aircraft. It has flown hundreds of thousands of hours globally and some of the world's largest airlines are flying this.

"We are actively engaged with both Boeing and the DGCA and will continue to put safety first, as always. We have implemented all additional precautionary measures as directed by the DGCA on Monday."

Back in 2016, The Intercept ran a blockbuster series revealing how foreign businesspeople were illegally laundering massive campaign contributions to Jeb Bush and other GOP presidential hopefuls.

Yesterday, The Intercept's hard work paid off, with the FEC levying record fines against the people named in The Intercept's investigation: $550K to APIC (US affiliate of SingHaiyi Group, a Chinese-owned, Singapore-based real estate firm) and $390K to Right to Rise USA, overseen by the GOP superlawyer Charlie Spies.

What tripped up APIC and Right to Rise USA was a failure to follow the remaining weak restrictions on foreign participation in U.S. elections. According to the FEC, only American citizens may participate in the decision-making process regarding donations from a foreign-owned corporation such as APIC — leaving out foreign individuals such as Gordon Tang and Huaidan Chen.

However, The Intercept’s investigation revealed that the donations to Right to Rise USA were made under the direction of Gordon Tang. In an interview with The Intercept two years ago, Tang told us that his brother-in-law, Wilson Chen, had asked him to “donate, so I did, I don’t really mind.” Wilson, for his part, told us that the donation had been approved by APIC’s board, which included Tang and Chen.

In the course of its investigation, the FEC confirmed that Tang had engaged in “communications regarding the potential APIC contributions to Right to Rise.” The agency also obtained emails from early 2015 that show that Neil had contacted his fellow board members at APIC about providing financial support for his brother’s presidential campaign.

          Australia, Singapore, China ground Boeing's 737 MAX      Cache   Translate Page      

The BBC reports that Australia and Singapore have disallowed Boing's 737 MAX series from flying in or out of their airports, joining other countries in grounding the jets.

The decision comes after an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing Max 8 crashed on Sunday, killing 157 people on board. It was the second fatal accident involving that model in less than five months. Singapore's Changi Airport is the world's sixth busiest and a major hub connecting Asia to Europe and the US.

China and Indonesia have also suspended the new 737 models, but U.S., European and Canadian carriers haven't followed suit. The US Federal Aviation Administration insists that it's safe to fly.

You can ask your airline or at the gate, but savvy travelers say the most reliable way to find out if you're booked for a flight on the Boeing Deathliner is to look up the flight number on a flight-tracking app. If previous flights were on one, yours very likely is too.

          Pilots Complained About Boeing 737 Max 8 For Months Before Second Deadly Crash      Cache   Translate Page      

Several Pilots repeatedly warned federal authorities of safety concerns over the now-grounded Boeing 737 Max 8 for months leading up to the second deadly disaster involving the plane, according to an investigation by the Dallas Morning News. One captain even called the Max 8's flight manual "inadequate and almost criminally insufficient," according to the report. 

"The fact that this airplane requires such jury-rigging to fly is a red flag. Now we know the systems employed are error-prone — even if the pilots aren't sure what those systems are, what redundancies are in place and failure modes. I am left to wonder: what else don't I know?" wrote the captain. 

At least five complaints about the Boeing jet were found in a federal database which pilots routinely use to report aviation incidents without fear of repercussions. 

The complaints are about the safety mechanism cited in preliminary reports for an October plane crash in Indonesia that killed 189. 

The disclosures found by The News reference problems during flights of Boeing 737 Max 8s with an autopilot system during takeoff and nose-down situations while trying to gain altitude. While records show these flights occurred during October and November, information regarding which airlines the pilots were flying for at the time is redacted from the database. -Dallas Morning News

One captain who flies the Max 8 said in November that it was "unconscionable" that Boeing and federal authorities have allowed pilots to fly the plane without adequate training - including a failure to fully disclose how its systems were distinctly different from other planes. 

An FAA spokesman said the reporting system is directly filed to NASA, which serves as an neutral third party in the reporting of grievances. 

"The FAA analyzes these reports along with other safety data gathered through programs the FAA administers directly, including the Aviation Safety Action Program, which includes all of the major airlines including Southwest and American," said FAA southwest regional spokesman Lynn Lunsford. 

Meanwhile, despite several airlines and foreign countries grounding the Max 8, US regulators have so far declined to follow suit. They have, however, mandated that Boeing upgrade the plane's software by April. 

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who chairs a Senate subcommittee overseeing aviation, called for the grounding of the Max 8 in a Thursday statement. 

"Further investigation may reveal that mechanical issues were not the cause, but until that time, our first priority must be the safety of the flying public," said Cruz. 

At least 18 carriers — including American Airlines and Southwest Airlines, the two largest U.S. carriers flying the 737 Max 8 — have also declined to ground planes, saying they are confident in the safety and "airworthiness" of their fleets. American and Southwest have 24 and 34 of the aircraft in their fleets, respectively. -Dallas Morning News

"The United States should be leading the world in aviation safety," said Transport Workers Union president John Samuelsen. "And yet, because of the lust for profit in the American aviation, we're still flying planes that dozens of other countries and airlines have now said need to grounded."

          "Cieli chiusi ai Boeing 737-8 Max in tutta Europa", la decisione dell'Easa      Cache   Translate Page      

L'Agenzia per la sicurezza del trasporto aereo dell'Unione europea (Easa) sospende tutti i voli del Boeing 737-8 Max e 737-9 Max in Europa a partire dalle 19, come misura precauzionale, a seguito al disastro aereo di domenica in Etiopia. Si legge in una nota pubblicata sul profilo Twitter dell'Agenzia.

"È una misura presa in via precauzionale - si legge sul sito dell'agenzia - l'Easa sta analizzando tutti gli elementi disponibili. Le indagini sull'incidente sono ancora in corso ed è troppo presto per trarre qualsiasi conclusione sulle relative cause".

Prima che arrivasse la comunicazione dell'agenzia Italia, Gran Bretagna, Francia e Germania avevano già sospeso le operazioni degli aerei Boeing 737 MAX 8, il modello coinvolto nello schianto dell'Ethiopian Airlines. L'Enac, secondo quanto si apprende, ha disposto lo stop operativo dei B737 dalle 21 di stasera. L'unica azienda che in Italia utilizza i Boeing 737 Max 8 è Air Italy. In un comunicato la compagnia ha specificato di essersi adeguata alla decisione dell'Enac: "Per Air Italy la sicurezza dei propri passeggeri e degli equipaggi è la principale priorità. - si legge in una nota. L'azienda tiene a ricordare che "tutti gli aeromobili presenti nella nostra flotta sono sempre pienamente conformi con le istruzioni delle autorità di regolamentazione e con le procedure operative della casa costruttrice".

Alla lunga lista che contava già Etiopia, Cina, Indonesia e Mongolia si aggiungono inoltre Argentina, Singapore, Australia e Corea del Sud. Intanto dal paese del Corno d'Africa fanno sapere che saranno necessari almeno cinque giorni per rilasciare ai familiari i corpi delle vittime.

In Europa, Gran Bretagna e Germania hanno deciso di bandire il volo dei 737 MAX dal proprio spazio aereo. Stesso discorso per la Norwegian Air Shuttle che lascerà a terra i suoi 18 mezzi dello stesso modello. Allungano la lista Austria e Islanda. Secondo quanto riporta Bloomberg l'agenzia europea per la sicurezza aerea (Easa) sarebbe pronta a seguire la linea della Gran Bretagna, primo paese europeo a prendere la decisione di tenere a terra gli aerei.

Da Singapore spiegano "l'Authority per l'Aviazione civile sospende temporaneamente l'operatività di tutte le varianti di aeromobili Boeing 737 Max da e per Singapore, alla luce dei due incidenti letali che hanno coinvolto questi aeromobili in meno di cinque mesi". L'Authority di Singapore si dice in contatto con gli enti per l'Aviazione civile degli Stati Uniti e di altri Paesi e con la stessa Boeing. Tra le compagnie più colpite da questa decisione c'è la locale SilkAir. La stessa decisione è stata presa dalle autorità della Corea del Sud. Si legge in una nota: "Abbiamo suggerito a Eastar Jet, l'unica compagnia aerea sudcoreana proprietaria del B737-8 (due velivoli) a lasciarli a terra". Anche la compagnia indiana Jet Airways ha deciso di fermare i voli dei suoi cinque Boeing 737 e dalla società fanno sapere che "nessuno dei mezzi in questo momento è impiegato nei voli". Anche l'Oman ha sospeso le partenze e gli arrivi nei suoi aeroporti dei 737 Max. La Oman Air ha 5 apparecchi di quel tipo. Il paese è il primo tra le nazioni del Golfo ad applicare questa misura in seguito al disastro aereo.

Dal Asia all'Oceania. L'aviazione australiana pone il suo divieto alla circolazione dei 737 nel suo spazio aereo e quindi anche i velivoli di altre compagnie non potranno entrare in Australia. Virgin Australia, la seconda aerolinea australiana dopo la Qantas, però mantiene l'impegno a ricevere la consegna di 30 Boeing 737 MAX 8 quest'anno. La Virgin, che non ha ancora nessuno di tali modelli nella sua flotta, ha ordinato 30 mezzi di quello specifico modello, per un totale stimato pari a più di 3 miliardi di euro, oltre a 10 Boeing 737MAX 10. Il primo 737 MAX 8 è atteso in novembre e sarà usato per rotte domestiche. Il comandante John Lyons, presidente dell'associazione di categoria della compagnia, ha parlato a nome dei suoi colleghi dicendo di "avere massima fiducia nel Boeing 737 e nel rigoroso addestramento che Virgin Australia assicura ai suoi piloti".

In Sud America, La compagnia di bandiera di Buenos Aires, Aerolineas Argentinas ha disposto un "riposo obbligato" per i suoi cinque Boeing 737 Max 8. In un comunicato la compagnia ha precisato che "il fermo degli aerei permetterà una loro ispezione e successivamente, secondo quanto comunicherà il costruttore Boeing, si deciderà se torneranno a volare". La decisione "è stata presa dopo l'analisi congiunta condotta con l'Anac, l'autorità del settore aereo nel Paese", si legge in una dichiarazione della compagnia. Motivando il blocco, dalla compagnia ripetono come un mantra: "Per Aerolineas Argentinas, il valore più importante è la sicurezza".

          Full confidence in safety of 737 MAX plane: Boeing      Cache   Translate Page      

[USA], Mar 12 (ANI) Boeing Company, which is facing backlash after its plane of model 737 MAX crashed on Sunday in Ethiopia killing all 157 passengers on board, said that it has "full confidence" in the safety of the plane. 

"Safety is Boeing’s number one priority and we have full confidence in the safety of the 737 MAX," said Boeing in a statement on Tuesday. 

In the wake of several countries' decision to ban or suspend the services of their respective Boeing planes, the company said: "We understand that regulatory agencies and customers have made decisions that they believe are most appropriate for their home markets."

"We will continue to engage with them to ensure they have the information needed to have confidence in operating their fleets," said the firm.

Clarifying that no new guidance is coming, Boeing said: "The United States Federal Aviation Administration is not mandating any further action at this time, and based on the information currently available."

On Sunday, all 157 people on board lost their lives when the Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet, operated by Ethiopian Airlines, crashed a few minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa's Bole International Airport.

The black box has since been recovered as investigators scurry to establish any links between the latest crash and last year's Lion Air crash, which involved a Boeing jet of the same make.

Earlier in the day, aviation authorities in Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, and Oman have also temporarily suspended Boeing 737 MAX services.

As many as 189 people were killed in October last year, when a Lion Air jet - a Boeing737 MAX 8 - crashed in the Java Sea, close to Jakarta, Indonesia.

Most of the countries and carriers where the said jets are being used have taken precautions following the tragic crashes. South Korea and India launched a special inspection of the planes, while China, Ethiopian Airlines and Cayman Airways have grounded their Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet. (ANI) 


          Britain bans operations of all Boeing 737 MAX planes      Cache   Translate Page      

[Britian], Mar 12 (ANI): Britain's aviation authority on Tuesday banned all commercial Boeing 737 MAX passengers flighter from the UK airspace in the wake of the fatal plane crash in Ethiopia.

"We have, as a precautionary measure, issued instructions to stop any commercial passenger flights from any operator arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace," the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said in a statement.

The authorities also expressed condolence for the "people affected by the plane crash".

"The UK Civil Aviation Authority has been closely monitoring the situation. However, as we do not currently have sufficient information from the flight data recorder we have, as a precautionary measure, issued instructions to stop any commercial passenger flights from any operator arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace," said the statement.

Earlier in the day, aviation authorities in Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, and Oman have also temporarily suspended Boeing 737 MAX services

          Neil 'The Grifty One' Bush Asked Chinese Dudes For Illegal Campaign Money? That Can't Be Right.      Cache   Translate Page      


We are shocked, shocked to learn that Neil Bush was involved in scammy campaign financing in the 2016 election, oh golly. The Federal Election Commission hit "Right to Rise," the super-PAC that fluffed his brother Jeb's campaign, with a record-setting fine after Neil solicited donations from Chinese nationals Neil was in business with. Mother Jones has the deets on the illegal campaign donation:


Neil Bush, who has extensive business dealings in China, solicited the $1.3 million contribution from American Pacific International Capital (APIC), an international investment holding company where Neil is a board member. Although the contribution to Jeb's super-PAC came from the American arm of APIC, the company's owners are Chinese, and Neil Bush initially solicited the money from two Chinese nationals -- Gordon Tang, the chair of APIC, and Huaidan Chen, a board member. The FEC has fined APIC $550,000 and Right to Rise $390,000.

The total fine, $940,000, is the biggest campaign fine in a single case since the Supremes opened the way to unlimited corporate spending on super-PACs in the Citizens United case. Haha, remember when Barack Obama said at the 2010 State of the Union that decision would "open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limits in our elections," and Samuel Alito angrily shook his head and muttered "not true"? Clearly, Obama owes an apology to Alito: In this case, a foreign company did direct an assload of money at a US campaign, but it got caught this time, so there's no problem!

The donation was the subject of a complaint from those meddling good-government watchdogs at the Campaign Legal Center. The CLC's Brendan Fischer said APIC's

"illegal $1.3 million [donation] is a direct result of Citizens United," Fischer says, since before that 2010 Supreme Court decision, companies could not donate unlimited amounts of money to super-PACs.

It certainly comes as one great big surprise that Neil Bush somehow got caught up in a grifty illegal campaign donation scheme, since he's led such an otherwise blameless life. Wonkette's Ken Layne wrote one of the all-time best summaries of the shady exploits of the often-overlooked Fredo of the Bush boys in 2006, and we're still amazed that "Neil Bush" has somehow never been as notorious a name as "Billy Carter" or "Roger Clinton." Not only did Neil run a crooked savings and loan where he "shuffled millions of dollars to his own oil-exploration front company in Texas while approving hundreds of millions in 'loans' to the S&L;'s other executives," he also managed to walk away from it all without getting prosecuted. Certainly couldn't have anything to do with his daddy being VP at the time of the scandal. That would be an awfully cynical view.

Neil followed up with a whole string of big business deals that traded on the family name (and Poppy Bush's time as US ambassador in China), but just as often failed. And we'd somehow managed to forget the Asian sex tourism that came to light during his 2003 divorce. Well heck, you should NEVER forget the Asian sex tourism! Which apparently happened without Neil even knowing he was a sex tourist, of course:

He admitted in the deposition that he previously had sex with several other women while on trips to Thailand and Hong Kong at least five years ago.

The women, he said, simply knocked on the door of his hotel room, entered and had sex with him. He said he did not know if they were prostitutes because they never asked for money and he did not pay them.

"Mr. Bush, you have to admit it's a pretty remarkable thing for a man just to go to a hotel room door and open it and have a woman standing there and have sex with her," Brown said.

"It was very unusual," Bush said.

We suppose Bush might have tried to argue something similar happened with donations to his brother's US super-PAC, from his Chinese business partners, except that, as MoJo details, Bush actually made the ask in an email. He may have thought he was following the very careful steps that would make a donation from the US subsidiary of a Chinese company legal, but hey, it's Neil Bush, so his conversations with Tang -- in Singapore -- and emails to Huaidan Chen actually documented that the donations were in fact illegally solicited from foreigns. (An American in the US division of APIC was also included in the email solicitation, but that didn't make it legal.)

Which gets to the bigger picture here: Since Citizens United opened the door to unlimited corporate spending on elections, the FEC's punishment of this one instance of foreign money in the 2016 campaign -- helpfully documented by Neil Bush's emails -- may be a fluke:

"Corporations being able to spend unlimited amounts of money in our elections opens the door to foreign influence," Fischer says. "If the actors were a little more sophisticated, they could have avoided an FEC investigation. There's every indication that this is the tip of the iceberg, that foreign money is coming into our elections through nonprofits and corporations, but without any detection."

Got that, would-be campaign scammers? Don't be Neil Bush: Hide your tracks better. Just say the foreign money knocked on your door, walked right in, and had its way with you without you even knowing what was happening, leaving you pleasantly surprised.

The solution to all this is really quite obvious: Since it's really hard to document where exactly campaign money comes from, the Supremes will just have to allow EVERYTHING. It's the American way.

Is it safe to board a Boeing 737 MAX-8?

          Higher freight costs take the shine of export log prices. Domestic supply is abundant, China demand stable, India prices under pressure      Cache   Translate Page      

At Wharf Gate (AWG) prices for logs delivered to ports around New Zealand decreased on average -NZ$5 per JASm3 in March from the highest February prices. This decrease in AWG prices is due to increased ocean freight costs for export log cargo.

Most CFR log prices in China were flat to a modest increase of +US$1 per JASm3. ‘A’ grade export now sells for up to US$143 per JASmin China and US$155 per JASmin India.

The domestic market for logs has continued the very stable start to 2019. There has been some capacity taken out of the pruned market with the closure of the Waverley sawmill, but other mills producing clear sawn timber are already at capacity.

Due to the drop in the AWG sale prices for export sawlogs the PF Olsen Log Price Index decreased -$3 in March to $134. The index is currently $6 above the two-year average, $9 above the three-year average, and $17 higher than the five-year average.

Domestic Log Market

Log Supply and Pricing

Prices for domestic log sales in March are mostly unchanged from February as most supply is locked in for the quarter. The settled weather around the country has caused log supply to increase with some mills and in particular those buying pruned logs, reporting an abundance of log supply.

Sawn Timber Domestic Demand

Most mills continue to report that 2019 sales levels are above 2018 levels. The continued fine settled weather in New Zealand is the likely cause of this solid demand. There was also a reduction in demand in 2018 as business was unsettled after the outcome of the New Zealand general election. But as usually happens, business realises there isn’t actually much change and gets on with their activities.

Sawn Timber Export Demand

The Australian market remains slow with reduced housing starts, and the Asian demand is increasing after the aforementioned Chinese holiday.  

The European clearwood market remains strong with some New Zealand supply about to be reduced after the closure of the Waverley sawmill.

The stable markets led to a less interesting market report, but the stability is good for the New Zealand forest industry.  

Export Log Markets

China

Total softwood log stocks increased across China during the Lunar New Year holiday period to just over 4.1 million m3. Daily uplift from the ports has steadily increased since this holiday period with current estimates between 60-70,000 mper day. The rate of offtake over the next month will likely determine the market direction for the next three to six months. Over 2018 the total softwood log market remained balanced with the number of days inventory supply in the 40-50 range. Log exporters expect a similar balanced position to be sustained through 2019.

The China log market is currently sitting at a sensitive point. Based on current CFR log prices and the China retail prices the log buyers cannot make a profit from New Zealand radiata logs. This does make Chinese log buyers quite discerning in log quality to ensure they are getting the quality of the grade they purchase.

It is unlikely alternative supply can increase dramatically in the short term, so the New Zealand log exporters expect further modest CFR price increases over the short term. Any pressure from competition will likely come initially in the lower grades as this volume can easily be replaced in construction markets with Uruguayan or other lower-cost logs.

While the US has delayed indefinitely an increase in tariffs on China goods, there is still a lot of negotiation to occur before a deal is concluded and tariffs lifted by either side. Once a deal is agreed, it is expected an easing of tariffs will be stepped rather than a complete removal. This means the sentiment about log supply from the US hasn’t changed.

Due to favourable pricing relative to New Zealand logs, Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) volumes have recovered overall slightly since Q4 2018. The current volume is approximately 50,000 JAS m3 per month which is still less than half of the Q1 2018 monthly volume. There was a recent reduction in supply due to snowstorm events. The current returns are supressed due to trade tariffs, but log volumes close to port and low-cost freight due to an imbalance in the container trade are keeping this business viable. Should the New Zealand radiata price hold, or slightly increase, the SYP price may improve slightly, underwriting some volume growth.

Log Supply to China from Uruguay was adversely affected in 2018 by increases in ocean freight costs. Uruguay is now able to provide some positive market return for forest owners as the freight market dropped around 10 USD per JAS mfor Q1 2019. Due to the increasing price for NZ radiata, logs from Uruguay can now sell for a slightly higher CFR price, improving the viability of exports and increasing available volume. South American exporters now have a much-improved understanding and management of quality control after earlier significant issues. They have also improved stowage for ship loading. South America led by Uruguay, currently export about seven vessels per month with the potential to increase more if New Zealand radiata logs maintain the current price level. Brazil is also starting to export in bulk with several vessels shipped in 2018 and a regular program expected in 2019. It will be interesting to see how these markets cope with expected ocean freight increases.

India

Movement of log stocks off Kandla Port has increased and the older stock has now been sold. The CFR price for New Zealand ‘A’ grade pine logs are in the US$155 per JASm3 range and forecast to increase marginally.

The lumber prices remain around Rs491 per CFT but the strengthening of Indian Rupee to 70-71 range with the USD has provided some bottom-line respite to sawmillers.

There is currently a strong demand for the cheaper 3m short length logs to reduce the average basket price.

The much-welcomed decision of the Indian government to reduce the GST to 2% on finished apartments and houses is likely to give a boost to the construction sector. Log sellers expect the effect on demand to occur shortly after the general elections in May 2019. Over this election period the market for NZ pine logs will not be significantly affected, however, the hardwood log trade is expected to slow down.

The recent removal of several Indian banks (Corporation Bank, Dena Bank, Allahabad) from the regulator watch list, the Prompt Corrective Action (PCA), should marginally improve funding and LC issues for sawmillers and log importers.

There is a market move by the Kandla Timber Association (Pine Cell) to make a concerted effort to increase the NZ pine sawn timber to Rs501 per CFT.

New Zealand pine continues to face competition from the following global trade aggressively targeting the Indian market.

  • Southern Yellow Pine CFR 120 USD for 10” (25cm) small end diameter (SED) and above. (NZ A grade logs have a 30cm SED).

  • South Africa Pine CFR 125 USD per metric tonne for pruned logs with a 30cm SED.

  • Kiln dried (KD) pine sawn timber from the Ukraine and Eastern Europe at 220 USD per m3.

  • There have been some arrivals of taeda and ellioti pine sawn timber from Brazil recently.

Due to the Kandla prices remaining low (around Rs491 per CFT) they are able to sufficiently service the Bangalore and Hyderabad markets (Rs 511/- per CFT) covering the cartage costs. Sawmills importing logs via Tuticorin Port have reduced production by approximately 30% while they wait for prices to increase. The demand for New Zealand logs and vessel shipments from New Zealand to Tuticorin are likely to remain subdued for the next few months.

Exchange rates

Over the last month the NZD has continued to trade within the 0.672 and 0.690 range against the USD. This means there has been little effect on AWG prices offered by log exporters.

NZD:USD

The Chinese Yuan (CNY) appreciated slightly against the USD through February.

Ocean Freight

Exporters have different freights costs relative to last month as there were some cheaper spot vessels available last month. Freight costs seem to have bottomed out and there has been steady increases over the last month. Freight demand is expected to increase with the usual increased activity after the Chinese Lunar New Year which will increase vessel daily charge rates.

Ocean Freight from NZ to Kandla is in range of 34 to 37 USD per JASm3.

Vessel congestion at the North Island load ports remains an issue particularly in Gisborne and Tauranga, where there is regularly two to three vessels parked at anchorage waiting for a berth. This congestion is due to a number of factors – increased log volumes requiring more vessels, port labour shortages, and in Tauranga fumigating logs for vessels can at times tie up a berth.

The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is a composite of three sub-indices, each covering a different carrier size: Capesize (40%), Panamax (30%), and Supramax (30%). It displays an index of the daily USD hire rates across 20 ocean shipping routes. Whilst most of the NZ log trade is shipped in handy size vessels, this segment is strongly influenced by the BDI.

The graph of the BDI over the last year below shows the recent bottoming-out then increase in the BDI.

PF Olsen Log Price Index - March 2019

Due to the drop in the AWG sale prices for export sawlogs the PF Olsen Log Price Index decreased -$3 in March to $134. The index is currently $6 above the two-year average, $9 above the three-year average, and $17 higher than the five-year average.

Basis of Index: This Index is based on prices in the table below weighted in proportions that represent a broad average of log grades produced from a typical pruned forest with an approximate mix of 40% domestic and 60% export supply.

한 도시의 색깔이 가장 잘 드러나는 때는 역시 가장 인공광의 비중이 커지는 밤 시간. 다소 치안이 위험한 곳을 가더라도 밤 시간의 산책은 빠뜨릴 수 없는 재미 중 하나다.

싱가포르에서 가장 야경이 괜찮다고 생각하는 마리나 베이 지역이다. 취향에 따라서 클럽 들이 많이 모여 있는 지역이 더 괜찮다고 생각하는 사람이 있을지 모르지만, 그래도 대표적이라고 할 수 있는 곳은 아무래도 여기지... 홍콩섬의 야경과 비견할 수 있을 만한 곳이다.

머라이언파크~에스플러네이드~헬릭스브릿지~마리나베이샌즈를 둘러싸는 지역은 가벼운, 혹은 가볍지 않은 저녁 산책으로 꽤 괜찮은 곳이었다. 야경도 아름답고, 에스플러네이드에서는 마리나베이 지역을 무대 배경으로 한 야외 무대에서 여러 무료 공연들이 펼쳐졌으며, 지칠 때쯤 되니 마리나베이샌즈 쇼핑몰이 나타났다. 그리고 루이암스트롱의 What a wonderful world를 주제로 하는 레이저+워터스크린 공연이 볼만했다. 혼자 다니는 여행에서 외로움을 느낀 적이 없었는데, 이번에는 외로움을 느꼈다. 다음에 올 때는 혼자 오지 않으리라...

+

이 날 걸었던 길이 F1 Sigapore GPX 서킷으로 활용되는 루트인 것 같았다. 여기서 밤에 이루어지는 F1 경기를 본다면 정말 황홀할 것 같다.


무슨 말이 필요있으랴... 말은 이 정도로 줄이고 (귀찮아;;) 사진으로 대체한다.



          Boat Quay :: Singapore      Cache   Translate Page      

싱가포르는 어릴 때 몰디브를 가면서 경유를 해 본 터라 몇몇 스팟은 이미 가 본 곳이었다. 물론 그게 거의 16년 전의 일이기 때문에 지금 풍경과는 많이 차이점이 있을 것이다. 그 때는 경유지 관광 프로그램을 이용한터라 센토사만 잠시 둘러봤었다. 이번에도 싱가포르에 떨어지자마자 간 곳은 센토사, 거기서도 리조트월드 유니버설 스튜디오였지만, 비도 추적추적 내렸고, 운휴인 어트랙션도 있었고 그래서 오랜 시간을 보내지 않고 그냥 나와버렸다. 한국의 추운 날씨를 겪다가 갑자기 더운 나라로 가게 되어서 적응이 되지 않아 그런지 의욕 저하도 한 몫 했을 듯 싶다.

일단 숙소로 돌아와서 약간의 휴식을 취한 후, 이렇게 시간을 보낼 수 없다고 생각하여 일단 무작정 나갔다. MRT를 탈 생각도 없었고, 버스를 탈 생각도 없었고... 그냥 발길 닿는 대로 걸어볼 작정이었다. 어차피 테마파크 같은 곳을 가지 않는 이상 싱가포르는 도보로도 (좀 빡세긴 하지만) 다닐 수 있는 곳이니까...

대충 목적지를 마리나베이 인근으로 잡고 (라고 쓰고 카지노라고 읽는다) 일단 강가로 발길을 향했다. 차이나타운에서 강으로 나가는 가장 가까운 지점은 보트키를 가는 것... 어쨌든 걸었다.

물은 사진에 나와있듯 흙탕물이라서 운치는 없어 보인다. 그래도 가만히 있어도 땀이 줄줄 흐르는 더운 날씨에 물 가까이 있다보니 약간은 시원한 느낌이 들기도 했다. 강을 따라서는 횡단보도 없이 쭉 걸을 수 있도록 배려가 되어 있고, 중간중간에 상업지구들이 나타난다. 클락키, 보트키 등등의 지역이 그곳인데.. 마리나베이 쪽으로 나가기 위해서는 보트키 쪽으로 가야 하므로....


클락키 지역의 강변에는 주로 펍 들이 많은 편인데 보트키 쪽에는 레스토랑 들이 많은 듯하다. 그리고 클락키보다 한산하기 때문에 호객행위는 다소 있는 편인데, 어차피 무시하면 그만이니까...


점점 마리나베이 쪽에 가까워질 수록 강 폭이 넓어진다. 레스토랑 많은 거리도 없어지고 이제는 온전히 금융 회사 건물들이 많아지는 느낌이다. 홍콩에서는 큰 빌딩 앞이 아주 삭막한 느낌이었는데 (포스팅을 하다가 홍콩하고 비교하는 대목이 많아질 것 같다) 여기는 그래도 아기자기한 조형물 들도 많고 사람들이 덜 찌들어 보여서 그나마 사람 사는 동네 같아 보인다.


단지 비행기표가 저렴해서 지른 여행이기 때문에 싱가포르에 뭘 하러/보러 왔다가 아니었다. 아마 해외여행을 다니면서 이렇게 목적성 없이 돌아다닌 것이 처음인 듯... 정말 말 그대로 정신줄을 놓고 걷기만 했다. 여행을 하면 이런 저런 생각이 많이 들게 마련인데... 정말 머리 속에 아무 것도 없었다.


또한, 외국에 나와 있다는 것이 정말 실감이 나지 않았다. 나이를 먹어서 그런 것일 수도 있겠지만, 원한다면 휴대전화로 당장 집에 전화를 걸 수도 있고, 필요하면 로밍데이터 풀어서 이메일 체크를 하고 일을 할 수도 있다는 사실 때문에 그랬을 것이다. 게다가 어느 정도 일을 일단락 지어 놓고 나온 것이 아니고 그냥 주말을 맞아 휙 떠나온 것이라서... 좀 낮선 청계천 변을 걷는 듯한 느낌을 많이 받았다.

          China, Ethiopia, Indonesia, European Union ground Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft after crash      Cache   Translate Page      

Ethiopian Airlines(LONDON) -- A growing list of airline carriers and aviation regulators around the world are grounding fleets of the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft in the wake of a crash of the same model that killed all 157 people on board.

A new Boeing 737 Max 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines went down in clear weather on Sunday morning just minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa Bole International Airport in Ethiopia's capital. The American-made jet was headed to Nairobi, Kenya.

A total of 149 passengers and 8 crew members were believed to be on board Flight 302, according to Ethiopian Airlines.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) of the United States said it's sending a team of four to assist in the probe. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said it plans to join the NTSB in assisting Ethiopian authorities.

Ethiopian Airlines said two black boxes -- the digital flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder -- have been recovered from the wreckage in the town of Bishoftu, southeast of Addis Ababa.

Another 737 Max 8 crashed into the Java Sea minutes after takeoff from Indonesia on Oct. 29, killing all 189 people on board.

Ethiopian Airlines, the flag carrier of the East African nation, decided to ground its remaining Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft "until further notice."

"Although we don't yet know the cause of the accident, we had to decide to ground the particular fleet as extra safety precaution," the state-owned airline said in a statement early Monday.

Airlines in other countries also have announced the grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8 fleets, including Cayman Airways, the flag carrier airline of the Cayman Islands, South Africa-based airline Comair, Aeromexico, Mexico's flag carrier airline, Aerolineas Argentinas, Argentina's largest airline and flag carrier, Gol, Brazil's largest airline, Royal Air Maroc, Morocco's national carrier, South Korean airline Eastar Jet, Turkish Airlines, Turkey's national flag carrier airline, and Norwegian Air Shuttle, Norway's largest airline.

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency on Tuesday suspended all flight operations of Boeing 737 Max 8 and 737 Max 9 aircraft models from flying into or out of Europe, "as a precautionary measure," amid the ongoing investigation into Sunday's crash.

A number of nations had already issued restrictions on the embattled jetliner.

China's aviation regulator has ordered all Chinese airlines to suspend operations of the Boeing 737 Max 8, nearly 96 jets. Using those planes won't resume until "confirming the relevant measures to effectively ensure flight safety," the Civil Aviation Administration of China said in a statement Monday.

Indonesia has temporarily grounded its Boeing 737 Max 8 fleet while aircraft inspections are carried out to ensure "flight-worthy conditions." The country's Directorate General of Civil Aviation has been supervising operations of the 737 Max 8 since the crash in October.

Singapore's aviation regulator has indefinitely banned all Boeing 737 Max aircraft from flying into and out of the country. The suspension affects five airlines, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore said in a statement Tuesday.

Australia has temporarily suspended operations of Boeing 737 Max planes to or from the country. While no Australian airlines operate these aircraft, two foreign airlines fly them to the country, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia said in a statement Tuesday.

Malaysia has also suspended operations of Boeing 737 Max 8 jets flying to or from the country "until further notice."

Oman's aviation regulator has indefinitely banned Boeing 737 Max aircraft from flying into and out of the nation.

The United Kingdom has ordered a suspension on any Boeing 737 Max 8 commercial passenger flights arriving, departing or overlying the country's airspace. The temporary ban is "a precautionary measure," the U.K. Civil Aviation Authoritiy said in a statement Tuesday.

The Irish Aviation Authority has temporarily suspended the entry and exit of all Boeing 737 Max aircraft from Ireland's airspace.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration issued a "continued airworthiness notification to the international community" on Monday evening for Boeing 737 Max 8 operators, signaling confidence in the jetliner.

The Boeing Company said it currently "does not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators" of its 737 Max 8 model.

"We have engaged our customers and regulators on concerns they may have -- and would refer you to them to discuss their operations and decisions," a Boeing spokesperson told ABC News in a statement Monday morning. "Safety is our number one priority and we are taking every measure to fully understand all aspects of this accident, working closely with the investigating team and all regulatory authorities involved. The investigation is in its early stages, but at this point, based on the information available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators."

In a letter sent to employees later Monday, Boeing's president, chairman and CEO said "the Max family has completed hundreds of thousands of flights safely. We are confident in the safety of the 737 Max."

The Chicago-based aircraft manufacturer has supplied more than 370 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft to 47 airlines since the model entered service in May 2017. Seventy-two of them are currently flying in the United States, according to Boeing.

At least eight Americans were among those killed. The U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia said it is "working to determine their identities."

ABC News has confirmed with family members that Melvin and Bennett Riffel from Redding, California, Antoine Lewis from Matteson, Illinois, and Matt Vecere, a California resident originally from New Jersey, died in the plane crash.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said at least 21 U.N. staff were aboard the doomed flight.

"Our colleagues were women and men -- junior professionals and seasoned officials — hailing from all corners of the globe and with a wide array of expertise," Guterres said Monday. "They all had one thing in common -- a spirit to serve the people of the world and to make it a better place for us all."

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed declared Monday a national day of mourning.

Boeing said it was "deeply saddened" by the crash.

"We extend our heartfelt sympathies to the families and loved ones of the passengers and crew on board and stand ready to support the Ethiopian Airlines team," the company said in a statement Sunday. "A Boeing technical team will be travelling to the crash site to provide technical assistance under the direction of the Ethiopia Accident Investigation Bureau and U.S. National Transportation Safety Board."

          U.S. Lawmakers Call To Ground The Boeing 737 MAX 8. FAA Says 'No' For Now       Cache   Translate Page      

As countries worldwide continue to ground their Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, aviation officials in the U.S. have been hesitant to follow suit.

The Federal Aviation Administration says there is "no basis to order the grounding of the aircraft." That's according to a statement Tuesday evening from Daniel Elwell, the acting FAA administrator.

"The FAA continues to review extensively all available data and aggregate safety performance from operators and pilots of the Boeing 737 MAX," the statement reads. "Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft. Nor have other civil aviation authorities provided data to us that would warrant action."

Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crashed on Sunday, killing all 157 passengers and crew on board. Just five months earlier, a 737 MAX jet flown by Lion Air crashed off the coast of Indonesia killing all 189 people on the plane.

Tuesday, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency announced it was suspending all flight operations of the Boeing series of jets involved in the crashes. That follows similar moves by China, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia and others to either ground the planes or temporarily ban them from their airspace.

And on Capitol Hill there is a growing chorus of lawmakers from both parties calling for the FAA to do the same.

Speaking on NPR's All Things Considered, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said the FAA has a responsibility to put "safety ahead of airline profits."

"Right now there's more than ample reason for airline passengers to be greatly concerned. In fact, justifiably frightened about the safety of these airplanes and the ability of pilots to handle a malfunction," Blumenthal said.

In a statement Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican, agreed.

"I believe it would be prudent for the United States likewise to temporarily ground 737 Max aircraft until the FAA confirms the safety of these aircraft and their passengers."

Cruz, the chairman of the Subcommittee on Aviation and Space, said he plans to hold hearings on the matter, "to investigate these crashes, determine their contributing factors, and ensure that the United States aviation industry remains the safest in the world."

Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Mitt Romney, R-Utah have also called on the FAA to ground the planes.

According to NPR White House Correspondent Scott Horsley, President Trump spoke to Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg on Tuesday. It's a sign of just how extreme the stakes are for one of the nation's most prominent companies.

In a pair of morning tweets, which came before the Trump's conversation with Boeing's CEO, the President weighed in on Ethiopian Airlines tragedy by lamenting that present-day planes are becoming "far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT."

The FAA said in its notice on Monday that as part of its "ongoing oversight activities" it expects Boeing to complete flight control system enhancements "which provide reduced reliance on procedures associated with required pilot memory items."

The FAA said it expects those updates sometime next month.

          Dozens Of Countries Ground Boeing's 737 Max 8 Following Deadly Crash In Ethiopia       Cache   Translate Page      

Airline regulators across the globe are grounding Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, joining an ever expanding list of countries banning the plane from their airspace. This comes in the wake of Sunday's deadly plane crash in Ethiopia that killed all 157 people on board. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

The latest move came Tuesday from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) when it announced a suspension of two Boeing 737 Max models in all flights in the European bloc.

The wave of bans follows the Civil Aviation Administration of China's decision on Monday to order the country's airlines to suspend all commercial operations of their Boeing 737 Max 8 jets.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration does not plan to ground the jets in the United States but is facing growing pressure to do so.

The FAA announced Monday that it would require a series of design changes for the Boeing 737 Max fleet.

In the U.S., Southwest Airlines uses a fleet of 34 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft and is not planning any change in service. Likewise, American Airlines, which operates 24 of the planes, is not planning to ground them.

The full list of countries and airlines that have announced a ban is below:

—Argentina (Aerolíneas Argentinas)
—Australia
—Austria
—Belgium
—Brazil (GOL Linhas Aéreas)
—Cayman Islands (Cayman Airways)
—China

          Cục Hàng không nói gì về việc cấp chứng chỉ tàu bay Boeing 737 Max?       Cache   Translate Page      

Ông Võ Huy Cường, Phó Cục trưởng Cục Hàng không Việt Nam cho biết, hiện các hãng hàng không Việt Nam chưa khai thác loại tàu bay Boeing 737 Max 8. Duy chỉ có Vietjet đã ký hợp đồng đặt mua 200 chiếc tàu này.

“Với tư cách là cơ quan đầu mối khai thác an toàn tàu bay, thay mặt Chính phủ, Bộ Giao thông Vận tải thực hiện quy trình chứng nhận chứng chỉ loại tàu bay Boeing 737 Max 8, Cục Hàng không có trao đổi với hãng hàng không Vietjet. Cục đã liên hệ với Cục Hàng không liên bang Hoa Kỳ, nhà sản xuất Boeing để cập nhật thông tin thường xuyên,” ông Cường nhấn mạnh.

Theo ông Cường, để tàu bay đăng ký và đưa vào khai thác phải được Cục Hàng không cấp hoặc công nhận chứng chỉ loại tàu bay do Cục Hàng không Liên bang Mỹ (FAA) hay nhà chức trách hàng không châu Âu phê chuẩn do nước ta chưa đủ năng lực đánh giá thiết kế, bay thử nghiệm cho đến lúc đưa vào khai thác.

Các tổ chức cá nhân mua tàu bay phải cùng nhà chế tạo tàu bay tổ chức thu xếp người của Cục Hàng không tham gia tìm hiểu loại tàu bay đó để thực hiện cấp công nhận chứng chỉ loại, kiểm tra giám sát điều kiện tàu bay. Đây là điều kiện bắt buộc. Khi có chứng chỉ loại, tàu bay mua phải có giấy chứng nhận đủ điều kiện bay xuất khẩu cho từng dòng và Cục cử đại diện đến nơi đó để cấp.

Đề cập về lô tàu bay 200 chiếc Vietjet đã đặt hàng và tháng 10/2019 sẽ nhận chiếc đầu tiên, ông Cường cho rằng, do Vietjet đã ký hợp đồng và có kế hoạch chuẩn bị nhận Boeing 737 Max 8 nên Cục Hàng không đã tiến hành các bước chuẩn bị đánh giá cấp chứng chỉ loại tàu bay, từ phi công, tiếp viên, nhân viên phục vụ mặt đất tới chuẩn bị thông tin, kỹ thuật, bảo dưỡng.

“Phía Vietjet cũng báo cáo Cục về việc nhận tàu bay Boeing 737 Max 8 vào tháng Mười tới. Tuy nhiên, nhà sản xuất Boeing chưa cung cấp hồ sơ công nhận loại sang Việt Nam nên thực tế các bước xem xét, đánh giá cấp chứng chỉ loại cho tàu bay Boeing 737 Max 8 vẫn chưa được tiến hành. Hiện giờ, nếu Boeing và Vietjet có nộp đủ hồ sơ, Cục Hàng không cũng tạm dừng xem xét, đánh giá để đợi kết quả điều tra nguyên nhân tai nạn vừa qua,” vị Phó Cục trưởng Cục Hàng không lý giải.

Khẳng định khi các nhà chức trách hàng không, đặc biệt Cục Hàng không Liên bang Mỹ (FAA) và nhà chức trách hàng không châu Âu có quan điểm cụ thể, đánh giá, kết luận về nguyên nhân tai nạn, tính an toàn của dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max 8, ông Cường quả quyết, Cục Hàng không sẽ xem xét, đánh giá để cấp phép cho nhập loại máy bay này về Việt Nam khai thác. Thời gian tạm dừng tới khi nào hiện cũng không có quy định. Cục đã trao đổi với Vietjet vấn đề này.

“Hiện quá trình điều tra tai nạn của hãng Ethiopian Airlines đang diễn ra. Trường hợp, FAA kết luận tai nạn có liên quan tới an toàn tàu bay và phải dừng khai thác, Việt Nam không lý gì lại cấp phép để đưa về khai thác,” ông Cường nói thêm.

Đối với các máy bay đang khai thác, Cục Hàng không Việt Nam và các hãng hàng không theo dõi các sự cố loại tàu bay để có thể cập nhật thông tin, tài liệu bảo dưỡng khai thác nhà sản xuất thay thế để theo dõi.

Ngoài ra, Cục Hàng không tăng cường, phân bổ nguồn nhân lực kiểm tra giám sát định kỳ hàng năm, đột xuất, tăng cường khi có dấu hiệu sự cố đối với hãng hàng không trong một thời gian nào đó thì kiểm tra, giám sát tăng cường. Các hãng đánh giá cao việc Cục kiểm tra an toàn khai thác vì an toàn được đưa ra hàng đầu, đây là nguồn hỗ trợ lớn để hỗ trợ chất lượng dịch vụ hãng hàng không.

Một số nước như Trung Quốc, Singapore, Australia, Ấn Độ hay Anh… và Liên minh châu Âu đã quyết định tạm dừng khai thác Boeing 737 Max 8 ngay sau 2 vụ tai nạn máy bay thảm khốc Boeing 737 Max 8 tại Ethiopian ngày 10/3 khiến 157 người thiệt mạng và hãng hàng không Lion Air (Indonesia) vào tháng 10/2018 khiến 189 người thiệt mạng./.


          Italy, Đức đóng cửa không phận đối với các máy bay Boeing 737 Max      Cache   Translate Page      

Cơ quan hàng không dân dụng Italy (ENAC) cho biết nước này sẽ đóng cửa không phận đối với các máy bay Boeing 737 Max 8 kể từ tối ngày 12/3 ngay sau vụ tai nạn máy bay ở Ethiopia làm 157 người thiệt mạng.

Theo ENAC, quyết định nói trên sẽ có hiệu lực từ 21 giờ ngày 12/3 theo giờ địa phương (20 giờ GMT).

Đây được coi là một biện pháp phòng ngừa do tình trạng chưa rõ ràng về nguyên nhân gây nên vụ tai nạn máy bay ở Ethiopia.

Động thái này của Italy diễn ra tiếp sau một loạt quyết định tương tự từ nhiều nước, trong đó có Anh, Pháp, Ireland, Áo, Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Oman, Trung Quốc và Indonesia.

Cơ quan An toàn hàng không Đức (DFS) ngày 12/3 cũng thông báo nước này sẽ cấm các máy bay Boeing 737 MAX 8 và MAX 9 hoạt động trong không phận nước này từ nay đến ngày 12/6 tới.

DFS cho biết các máy bay vẫn đang hoạt động trên không khi lệnh cấm này có hiệu lực vào lúc 17 giờ 30 phút (giờ GMT) ngày 12/3, tức 0 giờ 30 phút ngày 13/3 (giờ Việt Nam) đều sẽ được phép hạ cánh tại các sân bay gần nhất trên lãnh thổ Đức.

Trước đó, phát biểu trên kênh truyền hình N-TV của Đức, Bộ trưởng Giao thông Andreas Scheuer cho biết ông đã ra lệnh đóng cửa không phận đối với các máy bay Boeing 737 MAX và quyết định này có hiệu lực ngay lập tức./.


          Cieli chiusi al Boeing 737 Max: stop anche in Italia      Cache   Translate Page      
Dopo Gran Bretagna, Francia e Germania, anche l'Italia chiude lo spazio aereo ai Boeing 737 Max 8. Già il giorno dopo lo schianto del volo ET 302 della Ethiopian Airlines, che la scorsa domenica è precipitato nei pressi di Addis Abeba 6 minuti dopo il decollo, diversi Paesi avevano optato per la messa a terra di parte della flotta.Ma per la prima volta, Londra arriva alla decisione più drastica: bandire nel suo spazio aereo tutti i voli dei Boeing 737 Max 8, anche provenienti da altri Paesi e di ogni compagnia di bandiera. Anche l'Europa è pronta a seguire l'esempio del Regno Unito.I primi a bandire il modello incriminato di 737 erano stati Cina, Indonesia, Cayman ed Etiopia, lunedì. Martedì mattina, poi, anche alcune compagnie di Australia, Singapore, Brasile, Corea del Sud, Malaysia e Vietnam hanno sospeso l'uso dei Boeing. Gli Usa, invece, chiedono che i software presenti su quel tipo di velivolo vengano aggiornati e modificati entro aprile, ma non hanno messo a terra gli aerei incriminati. Infine, anche la compagnia aerea low cost Norwegian Air Shuttle ha deciso di sospendere i voli con i Boeing 737 Max 8.Ma nessuno Stato era arrivato alla misura della Gran Bretagna: l'Authority che vigila sull'Aviazione civile britannica ha vietato a tutti gli aerei Boeing 737 MAX di "arrivare, partire o sorvolare lo spazio aereo del Regno Unito".Dopo l'annuncio della Gran Bretagna, anche Francia e Germania hanno annunciato lo stop ai Boeing 737 Max 8 nei propri cieli. La Francia, nel comunicare la decisione, ha specificato che le compagnie transalpine non dispongono del modello di velivolo in questione. Ad annunciare lo stop in Germania è stato il ministro dei Trasporti, Andreas Scheuer, parlando all'emittente n-tv:"La sicurezza viene prima di tutto: sino a quando tutti i dubbi saranno fugati, ho ordinato che lo spazio aereo tedesco sia chiuso ai Boeing 737, sin da subito".In Italia, l'Enac ha comunicato che "dalle 21 di oggi, 12 marzo 2019, visto il perdurare della mancanza di informazioni certe in merito alla dinamica dell'incidente della Ethiopian Airlines avvenuto domenica 10 marzo e che ha coinvolto un velivolo Boeing 737 Max 8 e del precedente incidente di ottobre in Indonesia, l'Ente nazionale per l'aviazione civile, per motivi precauzionali, ha disposto la chiusura dello spazio aereo italiano a tutti i voli commerciali operati con aeromobili di questo tipo. In accordo con quanto in corso in Europa". Di conseguenza, "gli aeromobili di questo modello non possono più operare da e per gli aeroporti nazionali fino a nuove comunicazioni".L'Agenzia europea per la sicurezza aerea (Easa) era pronta a raccomandare il divieto di usare il modello di aereo incriminato sui cieli dell'Unione Europea. In serata, infatti, ha annunciato la sospensione di "tutte le operazioni di volo di tutti gli aerei Boeing dei modelli 737-8 Max e 737-9 Max in Europa". L'Agenzia ha precisato che tale misura è stata presa in forma precauzionale, "per garantire la sicurezza dei passeggeri".

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Via Teleconference
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joins us now. Secretary Pompeo, thank you for your time.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you, Laura. It’s great to be with you.

QUESTION: The U.S. has recently become the world’s largest oil producer and new reports say it could soon be the largest oil exporter. I understand your address today will focus on how this strengthens our national security. How is that?

SECRETARY POMPEO: I wanted to come to Texas today to talk about that very fact. This is a game-changer for American national security. As America’s most senior diplomat, I travel the world, and boy, there’s not a country I go to where energy isn’t at the top of their list, and what this does – what all of this success here in American domestic energy production does for me and for Americans, to keep them safe – is it permits us to share with those countries our wealth, our resources, to cut deals that support their energy security in places as far off as Vietnam and the Philippines and Europe.

And it permits them too to wean themselves from energy that they’re taking from adversaries, countries that want to do their country harm. This is a big deal for American national security. It gives us lots of power throughout the world, and our capacity has increased during the Trump administration. We intend to – intend to continue to do that, not only to create wealth for and jobs here in the United States, but to enhance America’s national security posture around the world as well.

QUESTION: The big news today again is Venezuela. One statistic you mentioned in a press conference yesterday is that Venezuela’s oil production is down by half since Nicolas Maduro took power. You accuse Cuba’s involvement as being about oil. Is oil also at the center of U.S. interest in Venezuela?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Only in the sense that we want the Venezuelan people to have access to their own wealth and not the corruption – the corruption that has followed the Maduro regime, this oil wealth being stripped away by the kleptocrats of the Maduro regime, taken for their personal benefit and not shared with the Venezuelan people. The Cubans have done the same. This isn’t what the Venezuelan people deserve, it’s not what they want, and America’s efforts to restore democracy and the rule of law, and to help feed and have medicine for the Venezuelan people – that’s the purpose of our efforts in Venezuela. And when we get this right, when Maduro is gone and there’s fair and free elections and democracy is restored, the oil wealth of Venezuela will be returned to its people.

QUESTION: Along with Cuba, you point to Russia as helping to support Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro. You just announced you’re withdrawing all diplomatic staff in Venezuela. In a tweet, you said, “The presence of U.S. diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on U.S. policy.” How do you mean?

SECRETARY POMPEO: We decided yesterday that it was important that we keep American diplomats safe, and so we made the decision that we would withdraw the remaining personnel there in Caracas and bring them back to the United States. So we’ll do that over the days ahead. Anytime you’re dealing with a situation that is deteriorating as fast that it is – as it is in Venezuela today, decisions you make are always encumbered by the fact that you know there’s real risk to your own people, people that you’ve sent into harm’s way. We wanted to get them back, we wanted to get them out of the country so that we could move forward in a way that provided that opportunity.

We have 200 metric tons of food sitting in the region, trying to deliver into Venezuela to feed the hungry and to provide medicine for the sick. We want to make sure that as we continue to work in the region alongside of our partners, we don’t have any constraints on action that we might need to take in order to achieve that.

QUESTION: That food that is waiting to support Venezuelan people, I assume part of the State Department budget goes out to pay for programs and food like that. What do you do with the Trump administration’s new budget proposal, which includes $13 billion in proposed cuts? Does that mean that support like this for places like Venezuela is lessened?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Oh, in fact just the opposite. Contained in the President’s budget request is up to $500 million, an enormous amount of resources that the Trump budget is proposing to provide to assist the Venezuelan people when the time is right. This budget will serve America well, America’s national security interests, because we’re prepared to help the Venezuelan people with real resources. The American taxpayers have been most generous, and President Trump has led that charge.

QUESTION: So as Trump’s budget decreases the spending for the State Department and also includes more military spending, should Americans be worried about policy shifting from diplomacy to boots on the ground?

SECRETARY POMPEO: You can take a look at the first two years of the Trump administration to see the effectiveness of our foreign policy. Our capacity to deliver really solid, really sound diplomatic outcomes – to build coalitions in a way that, frankly, the previous administration just chose not to do – a global coalition to put sanctions on North Korea, to hopefully get them to denuclearize. The world has come together – 50-plus nations – to recognize that Maduro’s time had come. A big, global coalition to take down the caliphate – over 80 countries in the Defeat-ISIS Coalition. We have worked diplomatic – incredibly successfully in the President’s first two years, and I’m very confident that we’ll have the resources, and I know we have the talent to deliver good outcomes for the American people in the days and weeks and months ahead as well.

QUESTION: You mentioned North Korea. The proposed cuts to the State Department come soon after a second summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, where no agreement was made. Where do we stand now in that situation?

SECRETARY POMPEO: I’ve personally been working on this alongside the President for my entire time as the Secretary of State, and in fact even just a bit before. In Singapore, in June of last year, Chairman Kim made a historic commitment to denuclearize his country, and in exchange the United States and President Trump made a commitment to provide peace and security and stability on the Korean Peninsula and a brighter future for the North Korean people. Our Japanese partners, our South Korean partners are working alongside us to achieve each of those goals from Singapore.

We didn’t make as much progress as we would have hoped in Hanoi, but the conversations continue. And meanwhile, there are not missile tests being conducted, there aren’t nuclear tests being conducted. We’ve made progress. Obviously more needs to be done. This has been a problem of a long standing, and we continue to march down the path, hopefully leading to a place where the threat of nuclear weapons from North Korea will be enormously diminished.

QUESTION: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Houston today for the energy conference known as CERAWeek. Secretary Pompeo, thanks again for your time.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you, Laura. You have a great day.

QUESTION: You too.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Houston, Texas
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: Good morning. And the Secretary of State does have a packed schedule, but he was able to squeeze us in for a few minutes here. So thank you so much for being here this morning. Welcome to Houston.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Great to be here.

QUESTION: Now, in your keynote address tonight, right around 6 o’clock, you’ll be talking to people about – the title of your speech is the role of energy in this 21st century political system. So what do you plan to tell or talk to those American businesses about their role in this political ecosystem?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So what we’re doing in America with respect to energy is incredibly important to what I do every day, working to keep Americans safe through diplomacy. Our capacity to produce energy to convince adversary countries that we don’t rely on them for energy and to tell our friends that we can assist them by providing energy to their country to take leverage away from their adversaries has proven incredibly important. So the boom, the American energy boom is important. Our administration’s worked hard to make that happen, and it’s keeping Americans safe.

QUESTION: In talking about those foreign affairs, we do have to switch gears to Venezuela. Yesterday you announced that you’ll be removing all the diplomats from the embassy there, in part because of that deteriorating situation, but I want to also quote part of your tweet. You said, in part, “the conclusion that the presence of U.S. diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on U.S. policy.” Are you willing to elaborate on what constraint on U.S. policy is and where you see things going after this?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Oh, sure. So the conditions on the ground have deteriorated over the last days and weeks. The Maduro regime has wreaked a real tragedy on the nation, the people of Venezuela. Our mission has been to restore democracy and help the Venezuelan people. Our embassy was an important part of that; the people there have done great work. But it was time for them to come back. Their security is always paramount. And it’s just gotten very difficult.

It’s also the case that when you’re making decisions about how to proceed, you have to consider the fact that there are still many Americans there on the ground. We wanted to get our diplomatic team back so that our capacity to work with Brazil and Colombia, and all the countries who have joined this enormous coalition to try to benefit the people of Venezuela, can be made in a way that doesn’t create further risk to American diplomats.

QUESTION: And you were talking about the humanitarian crisis. There’s already been a lot of money for aid going there. What else moving forward, since it has really only gotten worse?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So the American taxpayers have been very generous. We’ve delivered a couple hundred metric tons of assistance, medicine, food, hygiene kits. We haven’t been able to get it in; the Maduro regime has prevented us from delivering that. It’s horrific to deny food to starving people or medicine to the sick, but that’s what Maduro has chosen to do.

We’re going to keep at that. We’re going to continue to work with coalition partners. We’re going to try to help build up democratic institutions in a way that will ultimately convince Maduro that his days are numbered, that he ought to leave, and he ought to allow the duly elected Interim President Juan Guaido to begin to take charge to start the process of rebuilding this country that can be such a tremendous place.

QUESTION: And switching gears to North Korea, with the last – I know you know that it was coming – with the last summit with President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, it was essentially a stalemate. At least that’s what it seems to us, because Kim Jong-un was saying he doesn’t – he hasn’t released a plan yet, at least, for denuclearization. President Trump says that he isn’t willing to lift the U.S. sanctions to make that happen. So it seems like a stalemate, but you’ve actually been on record saying you don’t see it like that. Why is that?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Look, this is a long journey. We’ve been at this for a couple decades in the United States. What President Trump has done is he has built a global coalition. These are UN Security Council resolutions; they’re not American sanctions, they’re global sanctions. The whole world understands the threat that Chairman Kim’s nuclear weapons present to the world. Chairman Kim’s now committed to giving them up. He said he would denuclearize. He’s told me that face to face, personally, no less than half a dozen times. Now we need to figure out how to do it, how to achieve it. Our goal is to keep America safe, to keep South Korea and Japan from being under this threat. And when we do, we hope we can make a brighter future for the North Korean people as well. That’s the deal we’re trying to get to. President Trump understood that what was offered wasn’t sufficient, so more work to do.

QUESTION: And you having talked to him directly, Kim Jong-un, what is it about his statements that you actually believe?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Well, we only will value action. We all – talk is cheap. It’s important that we actually begin to deliver on the commitments. The two presidents back in June of last year were in Singapore. Each made serious commitments to the other. Chairman Kim committed to denuclearize; we committed to working to make North Korea have a brighter future and to stability and security arrangements on the peninsula. Our allies, South Korea and Japan, are prepared to work alongside of us. What we’ll need to see is action, and that’s what we’re counting on, and it’s what I’m hopeful we’ll get in the months ahead.

QUESTION: Thank you so much --

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you.

QUESTION: -- Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. And we’ll send it on back to you, Jose and Melissa.

           Emirates to launch second daily flight to London Stansted      Cache   Translate Page      
Emirates today announced the launch of a second daily flight from Dubai (DXB) to London Stansted (STN) starting 1st July, 2019. The additional flight means that Emirates customers will now have 11 daily flight options to and from three London airports.  As with the first, the second daily flight to Stansted will also be operated by Emirates’ ‘game changing’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration with 6 private suites in First Class, 42 fully-flat beds in Business Class and 306 seats in Economy Class. The aircraft offers customers an enriched travel experience across all cabins with newly designed seats and upgraded inflight entertainment systems. Customers will also enjoy new levels of comfort with fully enclosed private suites in First Class as well as refreshed Business and Economy Class cabins.“We are increasing capacity to London Stansted to meet steady demand from both leisure and business travellers to and from the region, as well as international student traffic to Cambridge. We continuously seek ways to maximise convenience and flexibility for our customers and the second daily flight combined with the optimal travel schedules will do exactly that; provide a seamless travel experience with Emirates,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations West.The second daily flight to Stansted also means increased tourism to the region, enabling further trade and economic growth. Popular inbound markets include Australia, UAE, India, South Africa, China, Malaysia and Hong Kong.Emirates customers travelling from London Stansted will also have more access to destinations across the airline’s global network with convenient connection times. Popular destinations for UK travellers such as Brisbane, Melbourne, Male, Seychelles, Bali, Singapore, Colombo, Bangalore and Bangkok all fall within an approximate two and half hour connection time. Emirates’ partnership with flydubai unlocks even more destination options for outbound travel, with seamless connections to Zanzibar, Kathmandu, Faisalabad and Asmara, to name a few.Travelling to Dubai for a weekend getaway or short work trip will also be more convenient with a morning or evening arrival option in Dubai and afternoon or evening arrival in Stansted.

Emirates serves a global network of 158 destinations.

          Thank You      Cache   Translate Page      

Now that we have finished our 18,000km bicycle tour and basked in the glory of our achievement for the past few weeks, it’s time to admit that we never could have done it without the many kind souls who helped us out along the way. ||

While we planned our trip, we read many inspiring blogs and books and contacted several experienced cyclists for advice. Special mentions go to Anne Mustoe’s book A Bike Ride, which was our first inspiration for cycle touring, and Alastair Humphrey’s brilliant books about his round-the-world cycle tour.

Al Humphreys also organised a pub night in London where we met other cycle tourers - Friedel and Andrew from TravellingTwo, who had already helped us out with lots of advice before our meet-up and have since published a Bike Touring Survival Guide that is packed full of useful tips and information. We also met Justin and Emma from Rolling Tales, who were about to embark on their own journey to New Zealand and who we later met again in Turkey, and Di who we ended up cycling with from Budapest to Istanbul. Tara and Tyler from Going Slowly answered our many pre departure questions via Skype from their tent in Romania and we had the pleasure of catching up with them in Bangkok. Many other blogs provided inspiration as well as practical advice and helped us gain the courage to embark on our own journey.

On our first day leaving London our friends Gerry and Dom cycled out with us. That night we were offered a bed by Andrea in Dartford via the Warmshowers website, making for a great start to our journey. During our tour we were hosted by many other people who invited us into their homes: Catherine & Mathieu in Metz, Charlotte in Strasbourg, Sandra & Alex in Böblingen, Jürgen in Vienna, Ulas in Turkey, Hossein & Sohra in Iran, Mahmud & Mahdie in Iran, Ahmad and his family in Iran, Melanie in Abu Dhabi, Chuen and his mum in Singapore, Ruth & Glen in Darwin, Paul & Jenny in Adelaide, John & Rachel near Timboon, Peter & Corinne in Wye River and Tony & Pam in Fairhaven on the last night of our tour.

Countless people helped us along the way by stopping for a chat, giving us directions, presenting us with food or drinks, waving or giving us the the thumbs up, buying us a meal or inviting us to into their homes, letting us camp in their garden, taking us on tours of their local area or even doing water drops for us in the Australian Outback. There are too many to name, but you know who you are and we will always remember your acts of kindness.

Along the way, some of our friends and family came out to visit us. It was great to see familiar faces en route. Gudrun came to meet us in Ulm, Freddie’s parents, sister and brother-in-law visited us in Vienna, Tony showed us around Budapest, Janna & Marco and Gerry came out to Istanbul, Abhishek & Priya and Amol introduced us to Mumbai, Nick & Aom met us in Bangkok and Nick spent a week cycling with us in Thailand, we met up with Beng near Kuala Lumpur, Tze-Ern and Ben took us out for a meal in Singapore and Guy’s sister Justine visited us in Adelaide. The prize for the most visits however goes to Freddie’s dad, Gerhard, who came out to see us 3 times – in Vienna, Istanbul and Dubai. Each time he carried a parcel full of spare parts, hand delivered from Germany, as well as sponsoring us some treats along the way.

A special thank you goes to everyone who has made a donation to SOS Children’s Villages to sponsor our ride, and to the charity itself who invited us to visit one of their villages in Kerala, India.

When planning our tour, we made sure that our gear was high quality, durable and light weight. The companies supplying our gear have for the most part been extremely helpful when something did go wrong. Icebreaker replaced a worn T-Shirt for free, Ortlieb sent us replacement clips for our panniers, Thermarest sent us two (!) new sleeping mats (the original one had delaminated and the first replacement was lost in the mail), General Ecology sponsored us a new First Need water filter cartridge, and Bikesportz sponsored us new Panaracer tyres.

A huge thank you to the crew at SJS who supplied us with our Thorn Raven bicycles which have served us loyally for over 23,000km without any major issues, not even a broken spoke. They were the most important kit item and they never let us down and certainly the upgrades to double walled rims, thick spokes and Rohloff hub were integral in this.

Our families have been extremely patient and supportive. Despite the fact that they sometimes worried about us, they never complained about our extended tour and always tried to act as if it was normal that we’d call them up from a phone booth in Iran announcing we’d be out of touch for the next 8 days as we were about to cross a desert.

Finally, we have really enjoyed writing this blog and connecting with people through our website, Twitter and more recently Facebook. We still get pretty excited when we receive a message or comment, and the encouragement of our readers has seen us through some tough times. Twitter in particular has allowed us to hook up with many interesting people along the way who were on their own extended cycle tours.

We hope that we were able to pass on some useful information and learnings to people planning their own tour to close the loop and give back what we received when we first started out.

-- THANK YOU!

          Foreign Investors Will Likely Continue U.S. Buying Spree in 2019      Cache   Translate Page      

U.S. real estate continues to look attractive to foreign investors from around the world.

Mega-deals helped spur foreign investment in U.S. commercial real estate to a near record level in 2018, and many are watching to see if that momentum can carry over into 2019.

According to research firm Real Capital Analytics (RCA), cross-border acquisitions of U.S. commercial real estate surged to $94.9 billion last year, jumping 73percent over the $55.3 billion reported in 2017 and nearly on par with the $100 billion recorded in 2015. That spike in volume shows continued confidence in the U.S. real estate market.

Investors are attracted to the stability and growth factors surrounding the U.S. economy, the ability for predictable cash flow and the strength of property fundamentals, notes Chris Ludeman, global president of capital markets at real estate services firm CBRE. “It also underscores the belief that the U.S. is not expected to experience any sort of economic downturn in the next 12 to 24 months, whereas the flow of capital in other parts of the world [is] a little more tenuous in terms of economic output,” he says.

Several sizable entity-level transactions provided a strong lift for that cross-border sales volume, including Brookfield’s nearly $15 billion acquisition of GGP and a second purchase of Forest City for $11.4 billion. Unibail-Rodamco also purchased mall operatorWestfield with U.S. assets that were valued at about $8 billion. “Those entity-level deals were really the headline behind that extremely strong volume,” says Maggie Coleman, managing director in the international capital markets group of real estate services firm JLL.

Platform level deals tilted the scales pretty significantly last year, notes Alex Foshay, vice chairman and divisional head of international capital markets at real estate services firm Newmark Knight Frank. “We don’t see any reason why that trend shouldn’t continue, and I think it will make up a very significant part of activity in 2019” he says. One potential target for international capital in the coming year could be REITs that are trading below net asset values, which could allow major overseas investors to come in and take significant positions in REITs at a discounted cost, he adds.

Capital expands outside of core markets

There has been a noticeable drop-off in volume coming from Chinese investors due to the tighter monetary policies in that country, but other investor groups are stepping into that gap. Canadians are typically one of the most active investors in the U.S. real estate market, and thanks in large part to Brookfield, the Canadians took credit for about half of all foreign-led acquisitions last year, according to RCA.

Singapore was also a major player in 2018, with $4.2 billion in acquisitions, which put it third behind Canada and France for cross-border acquisitions, notes Coleman. “There were some large-scale deals that Singapore entities purchased, and we certainly expect them to remain active in the U.S. going forward,” she says. Singaporean investors are looking to the U.S. for diversification, as well as the ability to capture higher yields in a relatively stable environment.

Foreign capital continues to move beyond core gateway markets and into other property types aside from office and hotels, such as industrial, multifamily and alternatives that include medical office, healthcare and data centers among others. “The story that has been most interesting in the last few years that seems to be gaining momentum is the flow of capital into strong growth cities other than gateways,” says Ludeman. That doesn’t mean that foreign capital sources are not interested in gateways, but foreign investors are recognizing that there are more attractive cities around the U.S. outside of those select markets, he adds.

In addition, more capital is targeting multifamily assets. Last year, there was an estimated $15 billion in foreign capital acquisitions in the multifamily sector, which represents about a 30 percent increase compared to the prior year, according to JLL.

Canadian investors were the dominant buyers in the multifamily space last year, and overseas investor pool for that asset class is expected to broaden significantly. “We are seeing the demand for multifamily rising in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and from certain investors in Europe,” notes Foshay. International investors are attracted to the strong performance metrics, and they also see it as a good inflationary hedge given the shorter term leases, he adds.

Hedging costs shift strategies

One of the biggest factors impacting international capital flows over the last 18 months is the increase in hedging costs for investors that seek to guard against fluctuations in the value of the dollar. Some major investors around the world, notably South Korean institutions and German pension funds, are required to hedge on currency values based on their own domestic laws.

Hedging costs spiked about 18 months ago due the Fed’s increase in interest rates, while other central banks around the world have yet to follow suit. “Those investors have seen the returns generated on their investments severely impacted by, at times, up to 250 basis points,” says Foshay. Hedging costs have retreated in recent months to about 150 basis points, but it is still causing those groups to look to higher yielding, emerging markets versus gateway cities.

For example, Samsung SRA Asset Management recently acquired the US Bank Tower in Denver and Commerz Real from Germany bought the National office building in Chicago. NKF is in the process of executing the sale of Micron’s headquarters in San Jose to Maury Trust of Japan for $430 million. Eighteen months ago, all of those groups were focused on gateway CBD office markets, and now they are looking at markets where they can make higher returns to compensate for the cost of hedging their investment, notes Foshay.

One of the biggest potential challenges ahead for international investment activity are rising interest rates that would increase hedging costs. However, interest rates have moderated in 2019. The 10-year Treasury, which was up well over 3 percent in 2018, has settled back around 2.7percent in recent weeks. In addition, the relatively flat yield curve between the 2-year and 10-year Treasury has widened slightly, easing concerns about a potential inverted yield curve.

“We have yet to see any caution exhibited by global capital coming into the U.S. for reasons other than hedging costs,” says Ludeman. “The sound economic footing that the U.S. is in relative to other economies around the world continues to be a positive. So, I think we’re in good shape for 2019.”


          Cổ phiếu của Boeing tiếp tục lao dốc sau làn sóng 'cấm cửa'      Cache   Translate Page      

Giá cổ phiếu của tập đoàn chế tạo máy bay Boeing tiếp tục lao dốc trong phiên ngày 12/3 sau khi ngày càng nhiều quốc gia và hãng hàng không trên thế giới đình chỉ khai thác dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max.

Theo đó, giá cổ phiếu Boeing đã giảm 6,15% trong phiên 12/3, đóng cửa ở mức 375,41 USD/cổ phiếu. Tính đến hiện tại, cổ phiếu của nhà sản xuất máy bay này đã sụt giảm 11,15% chỉ trong vòng hai ngày.

Công ty dịch vụ tài chính Edward Jones có trụ sở tại bang Missouri (Mỹ) đã hạ xếp hạng cổ phiếu Boeing vào hôm thứ Hai, đồng thời cho rằng vụ tai nạn mới đây nhất liên quan đến dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max có thể tác động mạnh đến lợi nhuận trong ngắn hạn của cổ phiếu này.

Dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max vẫn đang phải hứng chịu làn sóng cấm khai thác từ một loạt các cơ quan quản lý hàng không và các hãng hàng không.

Mới đây, Cơ quan An toàn Hàng không châu Âu (EASA) ngày 12/3 đã công bố quyết định đình chỉ mọi hoạt động bay đối với 2 phiên bản máy bay Boeing 737 MAX 8 và Boeing 737 MAX 9 sau khi xảy ra hai vụ tai nạn máy bay thảm khốc liên quan đến mẫu máy bay Boeing 737 MAX 8 chỉ trong vòng 5 tháng.

Tuyên bố của EASA khẳng định tất cả các chuyến bay thương mại liên quan đến dòng Boeing 737 MAX trong không phận châu Âu sẽ bị đình chỉ.

Quyết định trên được đưa ra sau khi một loạt các cơ quan quản lý hàng không thuộc Trung Quốc, Indonesia, Hàn Quốc, Vương quốc Anh, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Đức, Mexico, New Zealand, Italy... đều có động thái tương tự.

Nhiều hãng hàng không cũng quyết định dừng khai thác dòng máy bay 737 MAX như Ethiopian Airlines, Comair, Cayman Airways, Gol Airlines, Aeromexico, Aerolineas Argentinas... Một số quốc gia Nam Mỹ cũng tuyên bố đang đánh giá tình hình trước khi đưa ra quyết định đóng cửa không phận đối với phiên bản máy bay 737 MAX 8 của Boeing.

Tuy nhiên, Cơ quan Quản lý Hàng không Mỹ (FAA) tuyên bố không đình chỉ hoạt động của máy bay 737 MAX, cho rằng chưa có cơ sở chính xác để đưa ra quyết định trên nhưng sẽ yêu cầu nhà sản xuất chỉnh sửa thiết kế để cải tiến hệ thống điều khiển bay.

Bên cạnh đó, hãng hàng không của Mỹ gồm Southwest Airlines, American Airlines và United Airlines cũng đều bảy tỏ tin tưởng về đội bay của họ, dù các tiếp viên trên không và bộ phận dưới mặt đất của Southwest và American đều kêu gọi công ty tạm dừng khai thác dòng Boeing 737 Max cho đến khi vụ tai nạn ngày 10/3 có thêm thông tin.

Trong phiên 12/3, giá cổ phiếu của Southwest Airlines giảm 2,3% xuống quanh mức 50 USD. Giá cổ phiếu của American Airlines cũng để mất 3,5% xuống 30,92 USD vào cùng phiên này.

Chiếc Boeing 737 MAX 8 mang số hiệu ET 302 của hãng hàng không Ethiopian Airlines ngày 10/3 đang trên hành trình từ thủ đô Addis Ababa của Ethiopia đến thủ đô Nairobi của Kenya đã rơi chỉ 6 phút sau khi cất cánh từ sân bay quốc tế Bole ở thủ đô Addis Ababa, khiến toàn bộ 149 hành khách và 8 thành viên phi hành đoàn thiệt mạng.

Dù các nhà chức trách vẫn chưa xác định được chính xác nguyên nhân của vụ tai nạn thảm khốc trên, nhưng dư luận ngày càng lo ngại về sự an toàn của dòng máy bay 737 Max sau khi đã có hai vụ tai nạn liên quan đến dòng này xảy ra trong vòng chưa đầy nửa năm./.

When the park of her dreams needs saving, only June’s imagination can bring it back to life!


A tribute to creativity, Wonder Park tells the story of 10-year-old June, a wildly imaginative young girl who builds models of amusements parks with rides like the Skyflinger, Fantastic Fish Carousel, and Zero-G-Land with her mother. When June gets older, she starts to lose her sense of wonder and begins to shun her childhood ideas, including the idea of the park, packing away her models away. Nevertheless, her childhood catches up with her!

One day whilst exploring deep in the woods, in a magical moment, she discovers a roller coaster car buried under ivy. It transports her to a fantastical wonder park, like the ones she used to build, populated by animals who were its past employees. But the park is broken down, abandoned and in a state of decay.

June soon rediscovers the wonder of her world, and teams up with a whole host of talking animals to restore the park to its full glory, complete with spinning contraptions and inverting roller coasters, all whilst contending with a invasion of a army of cheeky chimpanzombies looking to stir up all kinds of destructive mischief.

The US version of the movie includes Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Rules Don’t Apply, The Producers) as Dad, Jennifer Garner (Nine Lives, The Tribes of Palos Verdes) as Mom, Kenan Thompson (All That, Kenan & Kel, Good Burger, SNL) as Gus, Ken Jeong (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Bob’s Burgers) as Cooper, Mila Kunis (Family Guy, A Bad Moms Christmas) as Greta, John Oliver (The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, live-action Lion King) as Steve, Ken Hudson Campbell, who voiced Boomer the Bear, Sofia Mali as Young June, Brianna Denski (Momsters: When Moms Go Bad) as June, Oev Michael Urbas as Banky, Norbert Leo Butz (Bloodline) as Peanut, Kate McGregor-Stewart as Aunt Albertine, Kevin Chamberlin as Uncle Tony, Kath Soucie (Rugrats, Hey Arnold!) as Bus Counselor Shannon, and Noen Perez as Chatty Kid.


The PG-rated film is written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows) from a story by Applebaum (Origin), Nemec (Knightfall), and Robert Gordon (Galaxy Quest). Appelbaum, Nemec, and Kendra Haaland serve as producers, with Karen Rosenfelt and Don Hahn executive producing. The movie is being produced by Paramount Animation, Nickelodeon Movies and Ilion Animation Studios. A director has yet to be announced for the movie.

Wonder Park is scheduled to roll into theaters on Friday, March 15, 2019. An animated television series based on the film will also debut on Nickelodeon in 2019.

Funrise, Inc. will serve as the worldwide master toy partner for the franchise.

Look out for Wonder Park merchandise in stores soon!

          Experts See Washington’s 'Big Deal' Approach to Denuclearizing N. Korea Facing Rejection      Cache   Translate Page      
Pyongyang is likely to reject Washington’s “big deal” approach toward denuclearizing North Korea as indicated by signals the country has been sending through missile launch preparations, said experts. U.S. Special Representative Steve Biegun laid out President Donald Trump’s approach toward denuclearizing North Korea at a conference held by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on Monday, saying, “We are not going to do denuclearization incrementally.” Biegun also said sanctions imposed on North Korea will not be lifted until North Korea achieves complete denuclearization.  Washington took an all-or-nothing approach or “big deal” approach toward North Korea’s denuclearization when it began its negotiations last year but gradually shifted to a phased, incremental approach, which is favored by Pyongyang, until the Hanoi summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. And weeks before the Hanoi summit, Biegun seemed to suggest in a speech at Stanford University that the U.S. would pursue a step-by-step approach toward achieving agreements made at the Singapore summit last June. ​Now, the U.S. has resumed its initial “big deal” position, and Biegun said last month’s Hanoi summit faltered because North Korea asked the U.S. to lift “basically all the sanctions” while offering to dismantle “a portion of their nuclear program.” Scott Snyder, director of the U.S.-Korea policy program at the Council of Foreign Relations, said the Hanoi summit revealed the U.S. has reverted to its original position. “It turns out that going for a ‘big deal’ almost brought the U.S. back to its initial negotiating position,” said Snyder. “And it raised the bar in terms of what both the U.S. was willing to give to Kim Jong Un, but also in terms of what the U.S. was expecting from Kim Jong Un.” Biegun also said that North Korea’s chemical and biological weapons “would be unacceptable” at the Carnegie conference. Robert Manning, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will not accept the U.S. position. “Kim has been clear and consistent from his first meeting with (Chinese President) Xi (Jinping) in Beijing that North Korea wants to move forward in a ‘phased synchronous process,’” said Manning. The leaders first met in March 2018 before the first inter-Korean summit was held in April. ​“Pyongyang will not accept the idea they give up everything, trust the U.S. and then they get some benefit,” Manning said. “It is too asymmetrical.” Evans Revere, acting assistant secretary at the State Department’s Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs during the George W. Bush administration, said, “Pyongyang will reject U.S. efforts to pursue a ‘big deal’ requiring North Korea to give up the entirety of its nuclear weapons and related weapons of mass destruction program” because it considers them “the key to the survival of the regime.” Revere said North Korea will consider giving up its nuclear weapons only when the current level of pressure increases to an “existentially overwhelming array of sanctions and pressure.”  He continued, “The current sanctions and other measures have not reached the level necessary to compel the shift we seek. It remains to be seen whether the Trump administration will be able to muster the diplomatic, political and moral leadership necessary to achieve the end it seeks.” Since the Hanoi summit breakdown, movements have been detected around North Korea’s missile facilities suggesting the country is not living up to its commitments made at the first summit and possibly preparing to launch a missile.  Commercial satellite images showed North Korea rebuilding the Sohae Satellite Launching Station at Tongchang-ri, which Pyongyang began to dismantle after the first summit with the U.S. in Singapore. ​There were also movements around the Samundong facility that suggest preparations may be underway for a test missile launch.  Experts see these activities as North Korea signaling its refusal to accept the U.S. position. “Kim Jong Un is sending a warning to Washington that he’s prepared to resume satellite launches if there’s no agreement on lifting sanctions in exchange for some measures toward denuclearization,” said Gary Samore, the White House coordinator for arms control and weapons of mass destruction during the Obama administration. Robert Gallucci, chief U.S. negotiator during the 1994 North Korean nuclear crisis, said North Korea is expressing “its unhappiness over the position taken by the U.S. at the Hanoi summit” which was rejecting its offer to dismantle the Yongbyon nuclear facility in exchange for receiving sanctions relief from the U.S.  Christopher Hill, a chief negotiator with North Korea during the George W. Bush administration, said he would be surprised if North Korea would fire a missile, but because “all the president’s men are getting less patient,” firing a missile would be “the end of this diplomatic phase.” Lee Jo-eun, Ahn So-young contributed to this report which originated with the VOA Korean Service.

          The 2012.      Cache   Translate Page      
It is my very first blog update here in year 2012. I just don't really have the time to update or maybe change my blog skin or whatever. So here am I right now having 4 days holiday for the Good Friday and the upcoming Easter Day. Pheeeew! Finally I got some time to spend on Facebook and somehow, on blog as well. Well, I don't think people are following my blog too. Haha! Blog is just like a diary for me to voice out everything that I wanted to.

Alright, let's come back to the point of blogging. So, how is it goes for your year 2012? The year of Dragon, LOL! As for me, so far it has been a hectic year. Pretty exhausted with my job and everything. It doesn't seems to go smooth on whatever things I am doing. First of all, I was planning to pursue my career in other field or getting myself with a better offer or opportunity but it does not work. I'm over high demand I guess and now I am stick with another half year contract and let's see how it goes in the future for the 6 months later. Secondly, getting myself healthier a lil this year. I mean it. I went for GYM!!!!! Yes, baybehhh, I am going for a workout! LOL! Finally I made it which I have been planning this for like few years? :P And finally I can experience in a better lifestyle. Clubbing or drinking no longer included! :P

Basically, I got nothing much to say besides my job because I don't really have time for other stuffs besides of working in the office for like 8 hours -13 hours , 5 days in a week? Saturday and Sunday always the best days ever which I can have a relief. No suffering from the freaking annoying jam, no working doubts, no emails, no escalations, no issues, the important thing is NOT FACING THE 2 MONITORS that I need to face every single second in work. Pathetic huh? Yea, it is. In Hokkien, people would describe this as "Jek Ak". Haha! Since now, I do have gym and going to take workout classes soon, my daily life is pack and I don't think I do have time for some hangover or maybe get a date? :P Well, I don't have a date, so no worries. This is what good on a single people like me. I feel great sometimes and especially when I am thinking of that SOMEONE. And with my packed schedules, now, I no longer have time to think about this person, indeed. ;) Well, a great start isn't it? *Wheeeeeeeeeeeee*

And next, I do have some plans in this year. Although it might not fulfill but yet, still need a plan isn't it? The important tool in fulfilling my wish would definitely be...... MONEY $$$ ! Yes, money! I need cashhhhhhhhh to go for some trips. Seriously, I wanna travel, and I wish to travel this year. Like going to Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Australia, Thailand even local would be good as well. Maybe other states in Malaysia like Perak, Melaka, Kuala Lumpur or whatever places that is cool to have some vacations! But yet, I still don't have the budget. Just try my best to get all this done soon! :D

That's all for my update. See you guys sooner or later? IDK. :p

Happy Good Friday and Easter Day!

          Boeing's CEO reportedly asked President Trump not to ground the company's plane that has crashed twice in 5 months (BA)      Cache   Translate Page      

trump boeing

As the European Union and many countries throughout the world were moving to keep Boeing 737 Max 8s, the plane involved in Sunday’s Ethiopian Airlines crash, out of their airspace, the plane maker’s CEO was apparently working behind the scenes to keep the same from happening in the US.

Dennis Muilenburg, CEO of Chicago-based Boeing, spoke with President Donald Trump on the phone on Tuesday morning to keep the plane from being grounded in the US, The New York Times reported, citing two people familiar with the call.

In a statement to a Times reporter, a Boeing official said Muilenberg only "reiterated our position that the Max is a safe aircraft" on the call with Trump.

Boeing did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

About two-thirds of the world’s 737 Max 8 fleet has been grounded, The Times said. On Tuesday, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) moved to ban the plane, citing the need to ensure the safety of passengers in the wake of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET 302 crash on Sunday.

The plane has also been banned from China, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia, and other countries.

Meanwhile, several US senators have urged the Federal Aviation Administration to ban the plane. As it stands, the plane is still considered safe to fly by the US and Canada.

Trump did little to quell fears about the plane's safety when he tweeted without evidence on Tuesday that modern planes were becoming "too complex to fly." Data show that air travel has become significantly safer in recent decades despite the two recent crashes.

          Native French Governor Needed in Moscow!!!!      Cache   Translate Page      

A friendly family living in Novaya Riga in the outskirts of Moscow are looking for a full-time native (preferred) French governor for their 2 kids - a boy aged 10 and a girl aged 11. The ideal candidate would be a positive, active individual who has experience teaching French to children and is qualified in teaching French - preferably with a Bachelor's or Master's degree in education. The perfect governor would also be fresh, sporty, fun, and ready to engage the children in a range of activities.

The 2 kids take swimming classes, martial arts, and love to spend time outside. The boy is into football and the girl takes dance lessons. The right governor would therefore be somebody who can accompany the children to these events and help them with sports in their free time.

A large part of this position will involve teaching the kids via sit-down French lessons. The governor will therefore need to be able to prepare a curriculum of sorts, to improve the children's French at a steady rate. The family would therefore prefer a French governor who has previously worked in a school or university, with experience of lesson planning and creating a full curriculum. Teaching qualifications are a must for this role. The children are native speakers of Russian and speak good English too. The parents in the family also speak English - so it would be beneficial for the governor to have knowledge of English for ease of communication. Knowledge of Russian language is not required for this position.

The schedule for this job will be 5/2, with the days off and hours to be arranged with the family but not exceeding 45 hours per week. The family are ready to help the governor find accommodation close to the family home, by either Strogino or Krilatskoe metro stations in Moscow. The governor may also be asked to travel with the family on occasion - they spend their summers in France or Italy and sometimes travel to other destinations during school holidays, including Singapore and Asia. The family are ready to discuss a salary from 5000 euros/ month for the right candidate. Ideally they would like to sign a contract for a minimum of one year.

Offer:
Negotiable salary beginning at 5000eur/ month
Work week of up to 45 hours
Worldwide travel
Live-out position with accommodation stipend
Minimum one-year contract

Requirements:
Native (preferred) French governor
Ideally aged around 25-40
Fully qualified and experienced in teaching French
Sports and musical abilities considered a plus

Location: Moscow
Salary: From 5000 Euro per Month
Hours: Full-time
Type: Permanent
Starting: Immediately
Duration: Ongoing

          Jet that crashed in Ethiopia grounded in much of the world      Cache   Translate Page      
HEJERE, Ethiopia – Much of the world, including the entire European Union, grounded the Boeing jetliner involved in the Ethiopian Airlines crash or banned it from their airspace, leaving the U.S. on Tuesday as one of the few remaining operators of the plane involved in two deadly crashes in only five months.

The European Aviation Safety Agency took steps to keep the Boeing 737 Max 8 out of the air, joining Asian and Middle Eastern governments and carriers that also gave in to safety concerns in the aftermath of Sunday's crash, which killed all 157 people on board.

Referring to the Lion Air crash in Indonesia that killed 189 people last year, European regulators said that "similar causes may have contributed to both events."

British regulators indicated possible trouble with a reportedly damaged flight data recorder, saying they based their decision on the fact that they did not "sufficient information" from the recorder.

Turkish Airlines, Oman Air, Norwegian Air Shuttle and South Korean airline Eastar Jet were among the latest carriers to halt use of the Boeing model. Ireland, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Australia and Singapore suspended all flights into or out of their cities.

A Turkish Airlines official said two Britain-bound planes returned to Istanbul after British airspace was closed to the aircraft. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

U.S.-based Boeing has said it has no reason to pull the popular aircraft from the skies and does not intend to issue new recommendations about the aircraft to customers. Boeing's CEO Dennis Muilenburg also spoke with President Donald Trump and reiterated that the 737 Max 8 is safe, the company said. Its technical team, meanwhile, joined American, Israeli, Kenyan and other aviation experts in the investigation led by Ethiopian authorities.

The Federal Aviation Administration also backed the jet's airworthiness and said it was reviewing all available data. It said it expects Boeing will soon complete improvements to an automated anti-stall system suspected of contributing to the deadly crash of another new Boeing 737 Max 8 in October.

"Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft," acting FAA Administrator Daniel K. Elwell said in a statement. "Nor have other civil aviation authorities provided data to us that would warrant action."

Some U.S. airlines expressed support for the Boeing model, and American Airlines and Southwest continued flying them. A vice president for American, the world's biggest carrier, which has 24 Max 8s, said they had "full confidence in the aircraft."

Safety experts cautioned against drawing too many comparisons too soon with the Lion Air crash in October. But others in the U.S. began pressing for action.

The Association of Professional Flight Attendants, which represents more than 26,000 flight attendants at American Airlines, called on CEO Doug Parker to "strongly consider grounding these planes until an investigation can be performed."

Consumer Reports called on airlines and the FAA to ground the jets until a thorough safety investigation is complete.

Even Trump weighed in, tweeting that additional "complexity creates danger" in modern aircraft and hinders pilots from making "split second decisions" to ensure passengers' safety.

He did not specifically mention the crashes but said, "I don't know about you, but I don't want Albert Einstein to be my pilot."

The Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed six minutes after taking off for Nairobi, killing people from 35 countries.

A pilot who saw the crash site minutes after the disaster told the AP that the plane appeared to have "slid directly into the ground." Capt. Solomon Gizaw was among the first people dispatched to find the plane. The wreckage was discovered by Ethiopia's air force.

"There was nothing to see," he said. "It looked like the earth had swallowed the aircraft. ... We were surprised!" He said it explained why rescue officials quickly sent bulldozers to begin digging out large pieces of debris.

Ethiopian Airlines, widely seen as Africa's best-managed airline, grounded its remaining four 737 Max 8s until further notice. The carrier had been using five of the planes and was awaiting delivery of 25 more.

As night fell, the airline offered no new updates on the investigation. An airline spokesman said victims' remains should be identified in about five days.

Some insights into the disaster and its cause could take months, aviation experts said.

"The conclusions that will come out of its probe will be beneficial to the rest of the world," Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said Tuesday at a news conference with visiting French President Emmanuel Macron. "These types of accidents break everyone's heart. I hope we will learn from this crash."

On Tuesday a group of officials from China, which also grounded planes, paused in their work at the scene to reflect with an offering of incense, fruit, bread rolls and a plastic container of the Ethiopian flatbread injera.

As the global team searched for answers, a woman stood near the crash site, wailing. Kebebew Legess said she was the mother of a young Ethiopian Airlines crew member among the dead.

"She would have been 25 years old but God would not allow her," she wept. "My daughter, my little one."

The British ambassador to Ethiopia, Alastair McPhail, visited the scene where at least nine of his countrymen died. "We owe it to the families to understand what happened," he said.

          Boeing CEO Allegedly Pleaded With Trump Not To Ground 737 Max 8 Jets      Cache   Translate Page      

Donald Trump shakes hands with Dennis Muilenburg.

Following the second deadly crash of a Boeing 737 Max airliner in just over four months on Sunday, countries around the world — including Australia, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Argentina, Mexico, the United Kingdom, European Union, and India — have grounded the plane until a full investigation can determine whether the two crashes were the result of a flaw in the plane itself. But in the United States, as The Associated Press reports, the federal Aviation Administration has so far refused to order U.S. air carriers to keep their 737 Max planes out of the sky.

On Sunday, an Ethiopia Airlines Boeing 2737 Max crashed on takeoff, NBC News reported, killing all 157 people on board. The crash occurred just four months and 10 days after a Boeing 737 Max operated by Indonesia’s Lion Air also crashed shortly after takeoff, killing the 189 people on the plane. The two crashes are the 66th and 36th deadliest air disasters in history, according to the database Plane Crash Info.

Dilansir Antara di London, Selasa malam, 12 Maret 2019, waktu setempat, Thomas Nung Atasana yang mewakili para penerbit Indonesia, mengatakan di samping 12 judul buku yang sudah disepakati untuk diterbitkan oleh sejumlah penerbit di Inggris, ada 187 judul buku terbitan Indonesia yang diminati penerbit asing.

Badan Ekonomi Kreatif (Bekraf) yang mengorganisasikan kepesertaan Indonesia dalam LBF 2019 itu menargetkan 50 kesepakatan penjualan hak terjemahan buku-buku terbitan Indonesia oleh penerbit luar negeri.

Dalam ajang yang memang diperuntukkan transaksi hak penerbitan di antara para penerbit dunia itu, ribuan penerbit seluruh dunia saling bertransaksi jual-beli hak terjemahan.

Rincian kesepakatan pembelian hak terbit dalam bentuk terjemahan oleh penerbit asing itu adalah sebagai berikut: Penerbit Asta Ilmu Publishing berhasil melakukan kesepakatan 12 judul buku kepada penerbit di Singapura dan 39 perjanjian untuk menindaklanjutinya sebagai kesepakatan alias meminati 39 judul buku dengan penerbit di Inggris, Korea dan China.

Sepuluh judul terbitan Lontar, penerbit milik Yayasan Lontar yang menerbitkan karya-karya sastra dari pengarang kenamaan di Tanah Air telah diminati oleh penerbit dari Itali, Inggris, dan Turki.

Selain keempat penerbit di atas, juga ada 16 penerbit dari Indonesia yang produknya diminati untuk diterbitkan di negera lain.

Selain kepada pihak institusional, para penerbit Indonesia juga mencoba bertransaksi dengan menawarkan hak penerbitan mereka kepada individu yang menjadi broker bagi pihak ketiga atau penerbit internasional yang tak sempat ikut serta dalam LBF 2019.

Pemilik penerbitan Asta Ilmu Publishing, Anna Purba mengatakan buku-buku terbitannya yang berhasil dibeli hak terjemahannya oleh penerbit asing adalah bertema pelajaran bahasa Mandarin.

Untuk Kelima Kalinya, Qantas Airways Jadi Maskapai Teraman di Dunia

Qantas (dok. Qantas)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sementara itu, Qantas Airways dinobatkan sebagai maskapai teraman di dunia pada Kamis 3 Januari 2018. Untuk kelima kalinya, penerbangan ini unggul di peringkat kategori tersebut.

"Qantas, salah satu maskapai tertua di dunia, dipilih menduduki posisi teratas tahun ini karena keunggulannya dalam inovasi keselamatan," kata kepala editor AirlineRatings.com, Geoffrey Thomas kepada Channel News Asia, Jumat 4 Januari 2018.

Maskapai Australia ini telah berada di garis depan dalam mengembangkan teknologi seperti Future Air Navigation System dan perekam data penerbangan yang digunakan untuk memantau kinerja pesawat dan kru.

Maskapai ini juga menggunakan komunikasi satelit untuk memantau mesin di seluruh armadanya secara real-time, yang memungkinkan operator untuk mendeteksi masalah sebelum menjadi masalah yang menyangkut keselamatan.

Maskapai yang masuk dalam 20 besar bersama Qantas Airways termasuk Air New Zealand, All Nippon Airways, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Emirates, Qatar Airways, dan Singapore Airlines.

"Maskapai penerbangan ini menonjol dalam industrinya dan berada di garis depan soal keselamatan, inovasi, dan peluncuran pesawat baru," kata Thomas seperti dikutip di situs web keselamatan dan peringkat produk.

"Mereka telah menjadi buah bibir dalam segi keunggulan," tambahnya.

AirlineRatings memberikan peringkat maskapai menggunakan sistem peringkat bintang tujuh. 20 maskapai teratas memenuhi kriteria tujuh bintang penuh.

Faktor-faktor seperti audit dari badan penerbangan dan industri, audit pemerintah, kecelakaan dan catatan industri yang serius, profitabilitas, inisiatif keselamatan industri terkemuka dan usia armada diperhitungkan saat menentukan peringkat.

Japan Airlines Keluar dari Daftar

Japan Airlines (dok. JAL)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sementara itu, dua maskapai ternama harus keluar dalam daftar peringkat penerbangan teraman di dunia. Keduanya adalah Japan Airlines (JAL) dan Etihad Airlines.

"JAL dikeluarkan karena salah satu pilotnya ditemukan mabuk di Heathrow," kata Thomas kepada Channel News Asia. "Etihad (dikecualikan) karena tidak menguntungkan."

AirlineRatings juga mendaftarkan 10 maskapai penerbangan berbiaya rendah teraman di dunia. Mereka adalah: Flybe, Frontier, HK Express, Jetblue, Jetstar Australia/Asia, Thomas Cook, Volaris, Vueling, Westjet dan Wizz.

"Semua maskapai ini telah lulus pemeriksaan ketat dari Intererinational Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit dan memiliki catatan keselamatan yang sangat baik," tulis situs web tersebut.

Di lain pihak, Ariana Afghan Airlines, Bluewing Airlines, Kam Air, dan Trigana Air Service menduduki peringkat terendah dalam hal keamanan.

"AirlineRatings hanya mempertimbangkan insiden serius ketika memeringkat operator penerbangan," tegas Thomas di situs web.

"Semua maskapai memiliki insiden setiap hari dan banyak yang terkait masalah pembuatan pesawat, bukan masalah operasional maskapai. Juga cara awak pesawat menangani insiden, yang menentukan maskapai penerbangan itu baik atau tidak aman. "

Dalam memilih maskapai, Thomas menyarankan para pelancong untuk membandingkan peringkat maskapai.

"Jangan lupa, kamu mendapatkan apa yang kamu bayar," tutup Thomas.

          Japan, Luxembourg, or Emirates: Which Passport is the Best?       Cache   Translate Page      

For some people, a passport is a portal to the world. For others, it is a barrier to the travel freedom they seek.

Henley Passport Index

The Henley Passport Index (HPI) is a global ranking of countries according to the travel freedom for their citizens. It started in 2006 as Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index (HVRI) and was modified and renamed in January 2018. The site provides a ranking of the 199 passports of the world according to the number of countries their holders can travel to visa-free. The number of countries that a specific passport can access becomes its visa-free 'score'. In collaboration with the International Air Transport Association (IATA), and based on official data from their global database. Henley & Partners has analyzed the visa regulations of all the countries and territories in the world since 2006.

In 2019, Japan’s passport is ranked the strongest in the world for the second year running, allowing visa-free access to 190 countries to an estimated 17.5 million outbound Japanese travelers last year.

Asian countries dominate the index’s top spots, with Singapore and South Korea ranked second, with access to 189 destinations visa-free or visa-on-arrival. China has also jumped 16 places in the past two years, from 85th in 2017 to 69th in 2019.

European countries still fare well, with Germany and France ranked third, with 188; and Denmark, Finland, Italy and Sweden fourth, with 187.

US, sharing its score of 185 with Austria, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland, and UK, ranked sixths.

The past decade has seen a marked decline in many African countries’ rankings, including Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Gambia and South Africa, which have all dropped at least 18 places since 2009. Afghanistan and Iraq hold joint-last place for the third year in a row, with a current visa-free/visa-on-arrival score of 30.

Despite a rising isolationist sentiment in some regions, global mobility is improving, with an increase in visa-free access and mutually beneficial agreements overall. Historical data from the index shows that in 2006, an average passport holder could travel to 58 destinations without needing a visa; by the end of 2018 this number had almost doubled to 107.

“The general spread of open-door policies has the potential to contribute billions to the global economy, as well as create significant employment opportunities around the world,” said Christian H Kälin, chairman of Henley & Partners and index founder. “South Korea and the United Arab Emirates’ recent ascent in the rankings are further examples of what happens when countries take a proactive foreign affairs approach, an attitude which significantly benefits their citizens as well as the international community.”
