AN Indian entrepreneur has given a new twist to the concept of low-cost airlines.

The passengers boarding his Airbus 300 in Delhi do not expect to go anywhere because it never takes off.

All they want is the chance to know what it is like to sit on a plane, listen to announcements and be waited on by flight attendants bustling up and down the aisle.

Fatal airline crashes decline 65 percent over past 10 years

Sept. 30, 2007

Explanation for the decrease lies partly in efforts to eliminate small problems early

WASHINGTON After two infamous crashes in 1996 that together killed 375 people, a White House commission told the airline industry and its regulators to reduce the domestic rate of fatal accidents 80 percent over 10 years. That clock ended Sunday.

They have come close to reaching that goal. Barring a crash before midnight Sunday, the drop in the accident rate will be about 65 percent to one fatal accident in about 4.5 million departures, from one in nearly 2 million in 1997.

There have been no fatal crashes involving scheduled flights this year in the U.S. and just one fatal accident: a mechanic who was trying to close the cabin door of a chartered Boeing 737 on the ground in Tunica, Miss., fell to the pavement during a rainstorm.

"This is the golden age of safety, the safest period, in the safest mode, in the history of the world," said Marion Blakey, the administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, in a speech to an aviation group in Washington on Sept. 11.

U.S. President George W. Bush directed deputies on Thursday to devise a plan to shorten airline delays, an initiative that could force carriers to change schedules and pay more to use crowded airports at the busiest times of the day.

"We've got a problem. We understand there's a problem and we're going to address the problem," Bush said after meeting Transportation Secretary Mary Peters in the Oval Office.

New Material For Aircraft Wings Could Save Billions
668 Reads
Articles related to anything

Building aircraft wings with a special aluminium fibre combination makes them nearly immune to metal fatigue. The application of this technology, partly developed at Delft University of Technology, will lead to substantial savings.

The unusual qualities of this special material (called CentrAl, an abbreviation of Central Reinforced Aluminium) can make a significant contribution to the development of truly energy-efficient, 'green' aircraft. Lower fuel consumption and reduction of maintenance costs could lead to worldwide savings as high as $100 billion.
