COPE tells SriLankan Airlines to delay procurement of aircraft
COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka’s Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) has instructed the national carrier SriLankan Airlines to delay its procurement process to lease up to 21 aircraft by three months.COPE Chairman MP Dr. Charitha Herath had instructed the Secretaries to the Ministry of Tourism, and the State Ministry of Aviation and Export Zone Development to revisit the entire procurement process given the present state of the economy, and to monitor if the process is followed in a proper manner.The COPE Chairman had also recommended that procurement guidelines be prepared, and the respective procurement process is tabled at the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers via the respective Cabinet Minister for approval.SriLankan said it had 24 aircraft and the number is expected to drop in the future, and since aircraft cannot be procured immediately, the necessary process was adopted.Chairman of SriLankan Airlines Ashok Pathirage had informed COPE that considering the market factors the process would take approximately 6 to 12 months to complete, and it would be carried out transparently via the ministry.Earlier, state-run SriLankan Airlines said it has requested proposals to lease upto 21 aircraft aiming to increase its fleet from the current 24 to 35 aircraft by 2025 while replacing equipment with expiring leases.“SriLankan is planning for measured growth in the next three years through frequency increases and the addition of new destinations as international travel is in a trajectory of recovery from the pandemic,” the airline said in a statement.“The business plan of the airline necessitates a 35-aircraft-strong fleet by 2025.

Philadelphia mask mandate: Where you need to wear a mask
PHILADELPHIA - Masks are back in Philadelphia, but when and where you are required to wear them can be confusing. As of this week, Philadelphia is under an indoor mask mandate that was announced after the health department noted an uptick in new COVID-19 infections. The all encompassing mandate was thrown for a loop, however, when a federal judge in Florida struck down the national mask mandate for public transportation that was recently extended by the Centers for Disease Control. The Justice Department said Tuesday it will not appeal the federal district judge’s ruling that ended the nation’s mask mandate on public transit unless the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believes the requirement is still necessary.In a statement released a day after a Florida judge ended the sweeping mandate, which required face coverings on planes and trains and in transit hubs, Justice Department spokesman Anthony Coley said officials believe that the federal mask order was "a valid exercise of the authority Congress has given CDC to protect the public health." He said it was "an important authority the Department will continue to work to preserve."Coley said the CDC had said it would continue to assess public health conditions, and if the agency determined a mandate was necessary for public health, the Justice Department would file an appeal.Philadelphia's health officials on Monday said it will bring back its indoor mask mandate on Apr.

UL clarifies 2021 cargo flights to Uganda; says printed material was Ugandan currency
COLOMBO (News 1st); SriLankan Airlines issued a clarification with respect to speculation circulating on social media with respect to SriLankan Aircraft uplifting printed material to Entebbe International Airport in Uganda last year. SriLankan Airlines on Thursday (14) said it received an air cargo order to transport about 102 tons of printed material from Colombo to Entebbe International Airport in Uganda in February 2021.The consignment was purely commercial in nature and brought in much-needed foreign revenue to the airline and country at the time. SriLankan wishes to emphasize that this cargo order was undertaken for commercial reasons only, it added.The details of the cargo consignment were withheld due to contractual obligations as per air cargo industry standards said the statement.However, in response to concerns raised following the statement the national carrier tweeted to say that the Ugandan government ordered Ugandan currency notes from a global security printer who operates several factories worldwide, including one in Sri Lanka, exporting to global markets.It went on to note that SriLankan aircraft which were underutilized at this time (2021) during the pandemic were chartered by a UK-based freight forwarder.What is now being misunderstood is the Airline Pilots Guild’s proud announcement of this achievement of using unutilized pax aircraft, it added.

Flair Airlines could be grounded in Canada over foreign control concerns
Flair Airlines could lose its right to fly in Canada over concerns that too much of its operations are controlled by a U.S.-based partner, according to a preliminary review from the country’s transportation watchdog obtained by Global News.The decision, for which Flair is seeking an exemption, could see the airline’s operating licence suspended on May 3, leaving Canadian air travellers with summer travel plans stranded at the gate.Some air industry observers are watching the proceedings skeptically, wondering about the lack of transparency around the review, while others say the airline has long been playing too loose with Canadian ownership requirements.“If you’re buying a ticket for travel beyond May 3rd… buy insurance and make sure you’re ready for some turbulence along the way,” says John Gradek, a professor with McGill University’s aviation management program who’s following the case.Flair Airlines is based in Edmonton, Alta., but operates routes connecting many smaller markets in Canada to other North American destinations.Though it technically began operations in 2005, it was in 2018 that Flair formally joined the emerging crop of ultra low-cost carriers (ULCC) in Canada including WestJet’s Swoop and Lynx Air. Flair offers a no-frills travel experience but appeals to consumers with eye-grabbing deals such as $69 flights from Toronto to Vancouver.Flair currently operates a fleet of 13 Boeing 737 aircraft, but has stated plans to scale up to 50 aircraft by 2025.
