FAA Approves Boeing 787 Battery Fix Allowing Flight Resumptions

Boeing Co. (BA)’s 787 Dreamliner won U.S. approval to return to service with a redesigned lithium-ion battery, more than three months into the government’s longest grounding of a commercial model in the jet age.
Restoring the 787 to flight status will allow the eight current operators to end the use of temporary replacements and start routes that had been put on hold with the Dreamliners unavailable. Chicago-based Boeing will be able to resume deliveries, a pivotal step because it gets bulk payments when aircraft are handed over.
The plane will continue to have permission to fly as far as 180 minutes from an airport, FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown said in response to questions. That is the same as the plane was originally certified to fly. That allows it to fly across oceans, mountain ranges or the poles.
“A team of FAA certification specialists observed rigorous tests we required Boeing to perform and devoted weeks to reviewing detailed analysis of the design changes to reach this decision,” FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said in a statement.
Next week the FAA will publish regulations on how to alter the batteries in the U.S. Federal Register, allowing Boeing and airlines to proceed with the fixes.
Boeing has sent teams around the world to help fit new battery kits into the 49 Dreamliners in airline fleets. Each installation will take four to five days, Boeing has said. Once those jets are fixed, work will turn to dozens of 787s stored around Boeing factories.

Qatar Airways to operate from Hamad international airport

QATAR Airways has announced its plans to relocate to the Hamad International Airport in Doha. According to the airline, the $15.5 billion airport would soon to be declared open and would witness Qatar Airways entire operation move at the end of the year.

Speaking to the top customers of the airline at a dinner in Lagos, recently, the Sales Manager, Nigeria, Ijeoma Nduneri, said the new airport will offer a new dimension to air travel.

She however expressed her appreciation to the customers for staying faithful to Qatar Airways and remaining focused.

According to her: “Qatar Airways is committed to offering and delivering excellent services on the ground and in the air. Five star service must come from the heart, must be consistent, real and classy, and this is our promise to our customers”.

Meanwhile, the opening of the new $15.5 billion Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar has been delayed for sometimes now.

According to a report, the new airport, originally scheduled to open last year, was set to open on April 1st, 2013, but remains closed after failing a last minute safety inspection.

The Chairman, General Authority for Civil Aviation, Qatar, Abdulaziz Al Noaimi, explained that the airport’s opening had been delayed for not meeting the new safety standards set by the department of civil defense.

He explained that, “the NDIA Steering Committee commends the efforts of the ministry of interior represented by the department of civil defense for their commitment to raising standards of safety and security in Qatar.

“The Hamad International Airport project has been completed by a number of international contractors who have supervised the system readiness of the airport and have already issued international certificates in the domain of safety and security”, he added.

Operated by the Qatar Airways, the airport will be able to accommodate 28 million passengers yearly, increasing to 50 million after 2015.

It stated that construction on the project started eight years ago in 2005, and the opening has experienced a series of delays so far.

Qatar: Hamad International Airport opening postponed

Manama: The opening of Qatar’s new Hamad International Airport (HIA) has been delayed hours before the first inaugural Qatar Airways plane was scheduled to arrive at 12.20am.
The last-minute cancellation was reportedly due to the airport’s failure to meet the new safety and security standards set by the Civil Defence Department.
Abdul Aziz Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the New Doha International Airport (NDIA) Steering Committee, said in a statement that the new date for the opening of the airport would be announced within days, Qatari media reported.
“The NDIA Steering Committee commends the efforts of the Ministry of Interior represented by the Department of Civil Defence for their commitment to raising standards of safety and security in Qatar,” he said
“The Hamad International Airport project has been completed by a number of international contractors who have supervised the system-readiness of the airport and have already issued international certificates in the domain of safety and security,” he said in the statement.
The delay was the fourth since the first announcement that the new airport would be officially open, local Arabic daily Al Arab reported on Monday.
The airport was initially scheduled to start operations in 2010, but the opening was put off to November 18, 2011, a date that was also scrapped.
The new opening date was December 12, 2012 (12/12/12), but the inauguration was again delayed to April 1.
“We are now awaiting the fifth date for the opening and several Qataris have started asking about the end of this Mexican television drama series,” the daily said, referring to soap operas shown on Arab TV stations.
Qatar is emerging as a regional hub for international events and is set to host the football World Cup finals in 2022, prompting the authorities to push hard for massive development, construction and infrastructure projects to reshape the country.

Hamad International Airport
Doha is set to open the Hamad International Airport -- one of the largest in the Middle East -- on April 1st.

In a decade, the airport is expected to host at least 50 million travellers annually. When it is fully operational later in 2013, it will have the capacity to hold 28 million visitors.

Next week, 10 Arab and Middle Eastern airlines will begin operating out of the airport.

The airport includes a pair of runways measuring 4.85 kilometres and 4.25 kilometres in length, and will be able to receive giant aircraft like fully-loaded Airbus A380s.

It has a three-story terminal with around 20 remote stands and 41 contact gates, some of which will be dedicated to Airbus A380 aircraft.

The airport also boasts a retail shopping area and comfortable lounges, as well as an aircraft maintenance hangar that can hold 13 aircraft

'SIGNIFICANT GROWTH'

Experts and businessmen said they expect the airport to help revitalise the tourism, transport and trade sectors, not only in Qatar but the region as a whole.

Issa al-Muhannadi, chairman of the Qatar Tourism Authority, said he anticipates Qatar will experience significant growth because of the massive airport.

"The Tourism Authority will take advantage of this important facility by opening offices to serve tourists and promote and market tourist destinations in Doha," he Said.

The Authority is currently implementing a joint programme with Qatar Airways to do just that, he said.

Meanwhile, Adel al-Hail, general manager of a travel and tourism agency in Qatar, said the new airport will help promote an "open skies" policy.

"Qatar's implementation of a package of mega-projects is revitalising air travel," he said.

"Statistics and international reports show that Qatar has become the focus of attention of businessmen, owing in part to the tremendous development boom it is experiencing, which reflects positively on airline [activity]," he said.

Hamad International Airport will play a major role in driving the local economy and in helping the small Gulf country achieve higher growth rates, according to al-Hail.

BOOST TO TOURISM

The new airport and its wide array of services can boost tourism in Qatar and the region, said Ibrahim al-Ali, CEO of a travel agency in Doha.

He said he expects the airport will strengthen development plans in the country.

"Doha is an ideal destination on the international tourism map, as it combines world-class service with luxurious hospitality that has won international awards for excellence, as well as modern facilities that meet the needs of tourists from around the world," he said.

The opening of the new airport comes as Qatar prepares to launch construction and infrastructure projects for the 2022 World Cup, and in fulfilment of the 2030 Qatar National Vision.

The vision was inaugurated several years ago and aims to bring comprehensive social, economic, human and environmental development to the country.
