Tags: A321neoLRs, Air Transat Posted by Travelweek Group << Previous PostNext Post >> TORONTO — Having an elephant in the room can be a bit distracting, but for Transat it was all “business as usual” at yesterday’s Sun 2019-20 launch in Toronto.Addressing recent headlines about a possible buyout of Transat, Joe Adamo, Chief Distribution Office & President of Transat Distribution Canada, remained mostly tight-lipped.“I know what you know, well, maybe a little more but not by much,” he joked. “What I can tell you is that these are uncertain times but for the most part very exciting times. The expression ‘It’s business as usual’ gets a little tired but never have there been truer words said.”On the fact that two potential buyers have now put in offers – Air Canada back in mid-May, and most recently Groupe Mach earlier this week – Adamo said the attention has been flattering.“It’s kind of nice to feel wanted – the more, the merrier!” he said. “We’ll see where all this goes. I’m confident a strong and prosperous future awaits our clients and our partners.”Gilles Ringwald, VP Commercial, Air TransatWhen asked whether airfare hikes could result from a possible buyout, Gilles Ringwald, Vice President Commercial of Air Transat, told Travelweek that it was “useless” to speculate on such matters at this time.“As you know, there’s a deadline of end of June, so we’re waiting for the end of talks with Air Canada to see what we’ll be doing next,” he said. “First let’s see what will happen, let’s wait until the end of June and then we’ll comment.”All acquisition talks aside, Transat is focusing its efforts on the upcoming Winter 2019-2020 season, which Ringwald said will be spurred by the recent introduction of the new A321neoLRs. The company has ordered 15 to be delivered by 2021; its first one debuted in May, with the second aircraft being delivered by end of June.“This new aircraft is a game changer for us because it allows us to fly long distances but with a limited capacity of 200 seats,” he said. “Our European program starts in May and ends in October, peaking from mid-June to mid-September, with May and October being weaker months. Today, we fly with the Airbus A330, which are big birds and are good for the peak season. But during the shoulder season, it’s very difficult to fill them and make money off of them.”More news: Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesWith the new A321neoLRs, Ringwald added, Transat will be able to fly point to point, “from London to Toronto and then Toronto to Cancun, or Toronto to Cartagena,” with the same aircraft and, possibly, with the same crew.“It’s very cost-efficient for us, plus it’s a new engine. In terms of fuel consumption, it uses 35% less fuel than other aircraft,” said Ringwald.The new aircraft will also help Transat expand its reach, both down South and to Europe, said Nicole Bursey, Commercial Director. She told Travelweek that the planes will give the company the opportunity “to do some new things,” like a direct flight from Vancouver to Fort Lauderdale, for example.“This would have been very difficult with our current fleet,” she said, “and is a real example of what our new fleet will allow us to do.”Other routes that will benefit from the new aircraft include Toronto to Italy (Rome), a destination that will be offered for the first time in the winter, as well as increased capacity to the Caribbean during shoulder season.“We’ve traditionally looked at winter as for the Caribbean and summer as for the South,” added Bursey. “What we’re finding is that Canadian travel patterns are changing a little bit, so it’s not such a drastic change from season to season.”This, of course, translates into more year-round bookings for the company, and according to Bursey, Transat is having a “really good summer” and is already on track for a successful winter 2020.” With bookings up, the company wanted to thank those on the frontlines – travel agents – for their continued support.More news: War of words between Transat, Group Mach ramps up“Today is just a celebration to thank the agents for everything they’ve done for us this season, plus for upcoming bookings,” said Bursey. “Transat has been around for 30 years now, and we’ve always been a huge supporter of the retail community, and vice versa. We’re very lucky.”Here are some key takeaways from the launch:• Notable routes for winter 2019-202 include: Montreal-New Orleans (a new destination for Transat); Barcelona and Rome until mid-January from Toronto; and Madrid and Malaga year round from Montreal• Transat’s Sun program includes 32 destinations in Mexico, South America, Central America, USA and the Caribbean, plus 700 hotels featured in its brochure and online, mostly all-inclusive and 25 of which are new• A wide range of other vacation options include à la carte hotels, guided tours, Duo packages that combine two regions in one trip, and condominium, house and apartment rentals in Europe and the South that can compete with Airbnb• This winter there will be 73 all-in-one cruise packages in the Caribbean, South and Central America, including New Orleans from Montreal (new) and Fort Lauderdale from Vancouver• Transat’s Early Booking Promotion applies to any South, Duo or Europe package booked by June 30, plus new for this year, clients get a chance to win their vacation for a value of up to $5,000• Cruise clients who book 120 days prior to departure can save $300 per couple• Transat has just completed its Ontario Training Academies, which saw over 1,000 travel agents in attendance; they then moved to Halifax before heading to Quebec next week and out West the week after• NEW PROMOTION: Transat is offering a free open bar aboard the Norwegian Epic sailing in the Western Mediterranean Sea from Barcelona, for departures on June 9, 16 and 23, 2019To read more about Transat’s winter 2019-2020 program, read our previous coverage here: http://www.travelweek.ca/news/here-is-everywhere-air-transat-will-fly-to-in-winter-2019-2020/ From acquisition talks to game-changing aircraft, Transat covers it all at Sun launch Friday, June 7, 2019 Share

As challenging as 2014 was for Fiji in general, the tourism industry finished with success as Fiji’s annual Visitor Arrival number reached a new high of 692,630.Visitor arrival numbers confirmed by the Bureau of Statistics show a significant increase of 5.3 per cent in visitor numbers from Fiji’s major key markets.This reflected the efforts of the Tourism Fiji team in offshore offices, as well as the Nadi-based head office.The most significant increases from specific markets are arrivals from New Zealand, which exponentially grew from 15,729 to 123,968, followed closely by Australia which saw a growth from 9,066 to 349,217.These are new records for both our traditional source markets, equating to an average daily arrival of 340 and 95 respectively.Other key markets which saw a healthy growth in visitor arrival numbers are the USA, China, Continental Europe and South Korea.Tourism Fiji acting chief executive officer Wayne Deed, said that the industry ended 2014 on an all-time high.“Challenging targets have been set for 2015 which the team here at Tourism Fiji have embraced and are already implementing through the activities in various markets. The key in ensuring we continuously meet our targets lies in the spirit of working together, which our team are great at doing. I have no doubt that 2015 will prove to be another fantastic year,” Mr Deed said.Source = ETB Travel News: Lewis Wiseman
Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires According to NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah, USC quarterback Matt Barkley made quite a first impression with the Cardinals’ Combine contingent. This week in Indy always spawns several rumors. One such rumor has the Cardinals being very interested in Barkley. I’ve been told this exact same piece of information from a few different sources. According to one source, the Cardinals were extremely impressed with the USC quarterback during his interview this week.Barkley at No. 7 seemed plausible following his 2011 campaign with the Trojans. As a junior, the Orange County native led USC to a 10-2 record and threw for 3,528 yards and a Pac-12 record 39 touchdowns. However during the Trojans’ disappointing 7-6 campaign in 2012, Barkley saw his numbers (3,273 yards, 36 touchdowns and a career-high 15 interceptions) and his draft stock steadily decline.To make matters worse, Barkley suffered a season-ending separated right shoulder in a late-season loss to rival UCLA. The injury kept Barkley out of USC’s bowl game and prevented him from throwing for teams in Indianapolis this week.While Barkley appears to be making the most out of his Combine experience, the former Trojan likely still has some work to do at USC’s Pro Day on March 27.Although it’s not terribly surprising that Barkley reportedly said all the right things during his Combine interview with Arizona, the question still remains: Can the Cardinals afford to take a quarterback with the No. 7 overall pick in a year where the draft class isn’t full of elite talent at the position? The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories 0 Comments Share Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling While most updated mock drafts have the Arizona Cardinals taking offensive tackle Eric Fisher (Central Michigan), offensive tackle Luke Joekel (Texas A&M) or guard Chance Warmack (Alabama) with the No. 7 overall pick in April’s draft, it seems another prospect might have done enough in the interview process to pique the interest of Steve Keim and Co. at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

Chennai 2015 Srinagar 2014 Uttarakhand 2013 Mumbai 2005 These disastrous floods remind us that without proper planning unusually heavy rains in densely populated areas can brew a deadly cocktail for disaster The issue is not just India’s alone In our rapidly urbanising world making towns and cities safer is emerging as one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century — be it for a natural disaster a health epidemic or any other largescale calamity Therefore today as India massively ramps up infrastructure and promotes smart cities it’s time to build resilience into the blueprint for the future strengthen cities’ ability to respond to a disaster as well as to recover rapidly if it does occur From the time a super-cyclone hit Odisha in 1999 and a devastating earthquake shook Gujarat in 2001 India has sought to build a safer disaster-resilient nation Not surprisingly Odisha and Gujarat were among the first states to set up institutions to deal specifically with disasters Then in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami and following legislation in 2005 the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) was established in 2006 At the global level too efforts to boost urban resilience are gaining momentum In 2014 nine institutions including the World Bank and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) — the world’s largest fund for disaster prevention and recovery — announced the Resilient Cities Initiative a worldwide collaboration to make cities safer Lessons from across the world show that much can be done to reduce risk even in complex urban scenarios To increase resilience critical infrastructure and services — schools hospitals water electricity communications systems transportation etc — will need to be built or retrofitted to withstand multiple hazards so that they continue to function in an emergency India’s coastal areas are making a beginning with a number of projects including the Union government’s National Cyclone Risk Mitigation Project (NCRMP) building the resilience of power infrastructure by placing electrical cables underground among other measures Preventing urban flooding will be equally critical Already floods are the most frequent of all natural calamities and with the likely growth in high rainfall events storm surges and sea-level rise urban vulnerability will only increase Seoul has tackled frequent flooding by combining hydraulic modelling of stormwater drains with the strategic placement of sophisticated pumping stations allowing flood waters to be pumped out into the sea in times of heavy rain Buenos Aires too has controlled this hazard after two crucial tunnels were constructed in its flood-prone central area Similarly it will be important to upgrade waste collection as carelessly handled garbage and construction debris are a major cause of clogged water outlets While modern technology can help forecast floods and cyclones no precise methods exist to predict earthquakes Enforcing building codes will therefore be imperative especially in India where almost 60 per cent of the landmass is seismically vulnerable The risk is particularly high in the Himalayan states where several strong earthquakes have resulted in sizeable loss of life and property Nonetheless urban development has proceeded apace and despite the introduction of building codes in the 1960s a large percentage of structures fails to meet standards and many are too high for an earthquake-prone region Today Istanbul has emerged as one of the most proactive cities in the world in safeguarding against seismic risks The city has retrofitted more than 700 public buildings and trained more than 450000 people in disaster preparedness In an interesting innovation Madagascar has made both builders and approvers liable for the safety of a building Other measures will also be important All towns and cities will benefit by collecting and sharing data on population densities critical infrastructure buildings etc enabling them to direct urban growth to safer places The NCRMP being implemented by the NDMA is doing just this by developing a digital platform that will help determine vulnerabilities to weather-related events along India’s coastline This will help define land-use along the 7500-km coast — three-fourths of which is cyclone-prone — and determine how strong we need to build to save lives Should a disaster strike a swift response can keep casualties low After the Gujarat earthquake flattened towns and villages the state established emergency response centres across its territory equipped them with specialised search and rescue equipment and outfitted emergency vehicles so that they could navigate narrow city lanes expeditiously Recently Odisha Andhra Pradesh and Uttarakhand have established their own disaster response forces Involving local communities is also critically important In Odisha for example local volunteers have been trained as first responders and equipped to provide first-aid and conduct search and rescue operations with special evacuation procedures to be followed for the disabled and elderly In Gujarat all schools including rural ones conduct exhaustive earthquake and fire drills that instil a deeprooted culture of safety and preparedness Another oft-repeated measure but nonetheless critical will be to pare down the multiplicity of urban authorities and align them with disaster-conscious ways of thinking Today with over $22 billion in support the World Bank is helping India better prepare for natural disasters and recover stronger from those that occur Over 60 per cent of this support is deployed in India’s coastal states to build resilience against cyclones and related hazards Support is also ongoing to several states that have been hit by disasters — after the Kosi floods in Bihar in 2008 the 2013 floods in Uttarakhand Cyclone Phailin in Odisha in 2013 Cyclone Hudhud in Andhra in 2014 and the Jhelum and Tawi
