• Partnership approach offers model for airline competition

    first_imgPictured from left are: His Excellency Majid Al Suwaidi, Consul General United Arab Emirates in New York; Mary Ellen, The Wings Club President and Vice President Sales for Asia Pacific and China, Pratt & Whitney; and James Hogan, Etihad Airways President and Chief Executive Officer, at the Wings Club luncheon held at The Yale Club in New YorkPartnership approach offers model for airline competitionThe partnership approach adopted by Etihad Airways offers a new model for airline competition, said President and CEO James Hogan, speaking at The Wings Club in New York this week.In an industry dominated by legacy airlines, and with such high barriers to entry, no new network carrier could hope to compete effectively on its own, he said. Yet without new competition, consumers around the world would suffer.Delivering the keynote address at the monthly Wings Club meeting, Mr Hogan said:“Global air travel is a business with incredibly high barriers to entry – not just in terms of cost, but in market access, infrastructure requirements and the challenge of competing against such entrenched mega-carriers.“The highest barrier is network. You can’t build a global network overnight – in fact, you’d need decades, and billions of dollars, to build networks that could compete against the major airline groups.“That’s where partnership comes in.  From day one, we’ve taken an open partnership approach, working with scores of airlines on codeshare agreements.  Then we took that a step further with minority equity investments in strategically important airlines.“Together, we have been able to create a new competitive choice for air travellers in key markets around the world.  That’s good for consumers, good for tourism and good for trade.”Mr Hogan said Etihad Airways’ equity investment strategy was a key element of that approach.“We have a two-pronged approach. From a strategic level, we are looking for the equity partners to bring network connectivity, generate additional revenues and create economies of scale.  All our partners are delivering on this level.“That has helped to create the seventh largest airline group in the world and is delivering hundreds of millions of dollars to our business.“Each partner then has its own business plan, which is the responsibility of their own management and Boards of Directors.  Many of these, such as Air Serbia, Air Seychelles, Jet Airways and Virgin Australia, are now delivering on this level too.  We are supporting the restructuring of businesses that require it, such as Alitalia and airberlin.”Mr Hogan said Etihad Airways’ entry into the United States market had also brought major benefits to the country.“We are a tiny player in the US air travel market, with less than 0.01 per cent of daily international departures. However, we have been able to offer major benefits to the United States.“We connect the US, through our hub in Abu Dhabi, with scores of markets which are simply not served by other carriers.  That means we are feeding hundreds of thousands of travellers, leisure and business, into the US.  Hundreds of thousands of those get fed onto the US carriers.“We’ve also been a close business partner with US corporations – most obviously with Boeing and other aerospace suppliers, but we’ve also created major partnerships with Sabre, Honeywell, IBM, Adobe and many others.“Our total impact on the US economy is more than US$ 440 million a year.”Mr Hogan said he believed many of the issues raised about Etihad Airways by the Open Skies campaign stemmed from a lack of understanding of the airline’s business model.“There are many myths about our business. But the truth is that we run as a commercial organisation, with a shareholder that demands a clear return on its investment.  We get no subsidies or state support.  We have a well remunerated, highly satisfied workforce.“What we have had is the investment required to compete in such a capital-intensive business. That’s a smart investment when you consider the many advantages Abu Dhabi offers as the focus for a global network airline – as long as there is a return.  That’s where our unique partnership model comes in.”About Etihad AirwaysEtihad Airways began operations in 2003, and in 2015 carried 17.4 million passengers. From its Abu Dhabi base, Etihad Airways flies to, or has announced plans to serve, 116 passenger and cargo destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas. The airline has a fleet of 120 Airbus and Boeing aircraft, with 204 aircraft on firm order, including 71 Boeing 787s, 25 Boeing 777Xs, 62 Airbus A350s and 10 Airbus A380s.Etihad Airways holds equity investments in airberlin, Air Serbia, Air Seychelles, Alitalia, Jet Airways, Virgin Australia, and Swiss-based Darwin Airline, trading as Etihad Regional. Etihad Airways, along with airberlin, Air Serbia, Air Seychelles, Alitalia, Etihad Regional, Jet Airways and NIKI, also participate in Etihad Airways Partners, a brand that brings together partner airlines to offer customers more choice through improved networks and schedules and enhanced frequent flyer benefits.

  • Where are we at with Bali

    first_imgOut of the blue a chance to visit Lombok came up. We thought why not……an earthquake, said not. Via Project Karma, who had people on the ground, I can tell you that the media seemed to be about keep it hush to keep tourists content just before a peak season, whilst locals died.  Travel insurance would not cover us, the course was moved from Lombok to Bali and we thought “why not”?As long as we could avoid the crowds. So we headed north.Impressions 2018The Balinese may always be amongst the most beautiful in the world.Bali was beautiful. All it took was a 90 minute transfer.It was quiet, no boozing, a European and gay and couples crowd, beautiful location and seriously, perfect. As I undid my prejudices the only thing I was left with was the rubbish problem.It’s everywhere. It’s disgusting. It’s generational. It won’t be solved. It will forever be a blight on this beautiful island. Why is it so prevalent in Bali?  A lot gets washed up on beaches from other places. Secondly, if your food has been forever wrapped in palm leaves and at the end of every day you throw it away …the memo that plastic was different didn’t get airtime.Tour guides cursed the rubbish as they threw plastic bags full of food to the monkeys that attacked us. Sigh. Re-creation as a foodie destination has been a masterstroke, driven by Australian expats selling for slightly less with significantly lower than Australian business costs. Win Win win winAussie “troubles” in Indonesia (Schappelle, bombings, drug couriers, pedophiles…) just saw us bounce back in our Bintang singlets in record numbers, until recently when local authorities lamented naked yoga poses at temples.Now we can’t say Lombok without saying Sulawesi; earthquake and tsunami with significantly more graphic images. Are we endlessly resilient? Source = STUBA.com Can you post Bali pics without a Bintang in the sunset shot? I’ve been to Bali Too….often? Coz I love it? Not enough?“IM GOING TO BALI??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”.Still has some of the most wonderful sunsets It was 1984 and nan and grandad were taking me. It was cool to buy knock off Adidas runners, the Bali Bogan was unknown, BYO vegemite, Redgum had a hit single about Bali.We loved Bali.In the 90s I had work with Indonesia and by fluke stayed at the same hotel from 13 years before. The hotel was run down, tourism had dropped. The friendly haggling on the street had been replaced with threats to buy with a knife and there was a bit of a plastic problem ….But we still loved Bali.I lost interest. Bali bombing scared me. I want to holiday amongst other cultures. I don’t want to go shopping. I want pristine waters. Everything I heard from Bali was anything but that.I stopped liking Bali even though I hadn’t been for 20 years. A bit pathetic really. Off to Lombok Indonesia in the press – a challenging narrative Maybe I am over thinking it – this young lady had the time of her life.So where are we at with Bali? Destinations such as Cambodia and Vietnam, with low barriers to bribery and exploitation, make a compelling case to see something new, matching the experiential desire of the more modern traveller. Three hours more in a plane is not a problem.Meanwhile newly minted travellers from countries with fat cheque-books are descending in greater numbers. They have very different travel tastes and create conflicting tourist economies which do not crossover. The massive white tour buses not only block traffic but drive a very different economic agenda.But bless us,  Australians donate in record amounts to the Lombok and Sulawesi causes, because not only are we relatively wealthy, not only are we generous, but a lot of people have had the times of their lives in Indonesia and want more.Stunning Balinese Scenery. You can’t tire of that view.Will they keep going?  Time will tell.www.stuba.com learn more about stuba.com herelast_img read more

velvet-like surfaces” said lead author Hao Liu Professor at Chiba University in Japan (Source:Bioinspiration and Biomimetics) Top News The unique wing features of owls that make their flight silent could hold the key to making aircraft and wind turbines quieter suggests new research A team of researchers from Japan and China studied the serrations in the leading edge of owls’ wings gaining new insight into how they work to make the bird’s flight silent The results published in the journal Bioinspiration and Biomimetics pointed towards potential mechanisms for noise suppression in wind turbines aircraft multirotor drones and other machines “Owls are known for silent flight owing to their unique wing features which are normally characterised by leading-edge serrations trailing-edge fringes and velvet-like surfaces” said lead author Hao Liu Professor at Chiba University in Japan “We wanted to understand how these features affect aerodynamic force production and noise reduction and whether they could be applied elsewhere” Liu added The researchers analysed owl-inspired feather wing models with and without leading edge serrations by combining large-eddy simulations a mathematical model for turbulence used in computational fluid dynamics to simulate air flows and Particle-Image Velocimetry or PIV (an optical method of flow visualisation used in education and research) and force measurements in a low-speed wind tunnel They discovered leading-edge serrations can passively control the transition between laminar or streamline air flow and turbulent airflow over the upper wing surface at angles of attack (AoA) between zero and 20 degrees This means they play a crucial role in aerodynamic force and sound production “These owl-inspired leading edge serrations if applied to wind turbine blades aircraft wings or drone rotors could provide a useful biomimetic design for flow control and noise reduction” Liu said For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Bhupender Yadav Vikramjit Banerjee | Updated: July 8 2016 12:21 am Illustration by C R Sasikumar Top News Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is one of the most prominent universities in the country It has an eminent history which is intricately linked with the freedom struggle and the formulation of the Indian education system People across all communities have contributed to making it what it is today It finds mention in the Constitution and falls directly within the power of the Centre not the state government Yet there is an increasing demand that AMU be treated as a separate educational institution for Muslims alone There are demands that the AMU be treated as a religious minority institution and its Muslim character be protected Sadly many cheer on this project of separatism That being said there are two broad questions that lie at the heart of the debate One what is a university for and can a university have a religious character Two what was the nature of AMU when it was founded Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news Some of the oldest universities in the world be it Oxford Cambridge Padua or Salamanca had religious origins but a university as we know it today forms the bedrock of a modern society and is clearly a post-Renaissance development In many ways it is in these universities that the rebellion and dissent against the old religious world order was incubated and proclaimed If the religious education system is a remnant of the old traditional sacred world it is in the universities of the post-Renaissance Europe that the modern world was forged Along the way some of the old religious schools patronised either by kings or the church transformed themselves into the world famous universities However they continued to carry some of the quaint rituals and remnants of their religious origins but such rituals didn’t change the character of the university Just because sermons continued to be delivered at the university church in Cambridge did not make Cambridge a Christian university Interestingly the Al-Azhar university in Egypt was not a university till 1961 and opted to become one after it explicitly took up teaching secular subjects and became non-sectarian even though its history is deeply linked with the Al-Azhar Mosque from 972 CE The progression from religious education into a modernist one lies at the heart of being a university A religious educational institution by its very nature is exclusive A university on the other hand is inclusive It is neither a madrassa nor a Sanskrit tol nor a convent school It receives students from all walks of life In the 20th and 21st century a university is the crucible of the modern progressive world and by definition cannot have a religious character This applies more to a national institution like the AMU which not only finds mention in the Constitution of India — Entry 63 List I of the Seventh Schedule — that provides it with a unique identity but is also accorded special benefits as a national public university This is the essential difference between the AMU and any other Muslim religious educational institution which enjoys protection under Article 30 of the Constitution The AMU is not the Darul Uloom of Deoband While the latter is entitled to protection as an institution that has been established and administered by a religious minority the AMU remains a national public university as per the Constitution itself The word “Muslim” in AMU’s name cannot be taken to be an indicator as to the nature of the university just as the Banaras Hindu University cannot be said to have a “Hindu” character The fact that the AMU’s origins can be traced to the Muhammadan Anglo-Oriental College is as relevant today to decide the nature and character of the university as the role or intention of the church at the time of the foundation of the Oxford University The fact that a lot but not all of a university’s students came from the Muslim community is a strange parameter to decide the character of any university This leads us to the second question: What was the intention of the founders of the AMU Two broad answers are quite clear Sir Syed Ahmad Khan wanted a university in the true sense of the word He did not want a religious educational institution He wanted an educational institution on the Oxbridge model There was a reason why the educational institution which began as the Madrasatul Uloom Musalmanan-e-Hind did not retain that name Sir Syed wanted to create a non- sectarian educational institution Sir Syed wanted the AMU to be like Oxford and Cambridge which were non-sectarian despite originating as religious educational institutions In fact even 14 years after the establishment of the MAO College in 1875 Hindus outnumbered Muslims in college-level enrollment This was also the reason why the first
