Updates found with 'seats'

Day by day the Aeronautical Engineering is developing highly especially in Aircraft designing and giving new opportunity for job for cabin crew and as the following news:Airbus Moves to Increase Average A380 Capacity by 78 SeatsAirbus has unveiled a series of space-saving modifications for the A380 cabin that will result in room for another 78 passengers on average. Presenting the package at the April 4 to 6 Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany, the company said average four-class passenger capacity will increase from 497 to 575, allowing the A380 to generate “significantly more revenue” for operators.An 11-abreast “three-five-three” seating configuration in the airplane’s main deck economy class accounts for the most additional capacity, allowing for another 23 passengers. Meanwhile, modifications allowing for a move to eight abreast to nine abreast in premium economy accounts for another 11.However, perhaps the most revenue-generating potential lies with a new forward stairs (NFS) design that involves relocation of the forward stair from Door 1 to Door 2 and combining the entrance of the NFS to the upper deck with the adjacent staircase to the lower-deck crew rest. That modification will add another 20 seats in business, economy plus and economy.Still more business class capacity comes from the removal of upper-deck sidewall stowage, increasing wall-to-wall cabin width at foot-rest height and generating space for up to 10 more business class seats/beds in an angled herring-bone arrangement.Separately, a new aft-galley stair module (AGSM) involves the redesign of the rear stair from a spiral agreement to a straight/square one, allowing for more storage volume for galley modules on the main deck. The AGSMprovides space for 14 more revenue passengers plus two extra food trolleys.Finally, the offerings include a combined crew-rest compartment (CCRC), where designers moved down the existing flight-crew-rest (behind the cockpit in the mezzanine area at Door 1) and combined it with the cabin crew rest on the lower deck. That modification allows for another three premium economy seats in the front of the main deck. Source : AIN Online newsDassault Takes On Top of Market Up a Notch With Falcon 8XIt’s said that the margin of victory in life can sometimes be measured in in¬ches. Dassault believes that another 43 inches (109 cm) of fuselage length will help make a big difference when it comes to the Falcon 8X. Along with a string of technological advancements, the long-range, large-cabin trijet, which the company began delivering to customers last year, boasts a longer passenger cabin than its 7X predecessor. That translates into 7 percent more volume—enough to allow for a longer galley, more legroom between seats, or an optional steam shower in the aft lavatory.The added inches—and the long list of other enhancements—push the price of the 8X to nearly $60 million, making it about 10 percent more expensive than the wildly successful 7X. But because the 8X offers a lot more than just extra room, Dassault believes that a ready audience exists for the airplane: some of the more than 200 owners of the 7X and perhaps those waiting—and waiting—for the under-development Bombardier Globals as well as for the Gulfstream G650ER, which is in production but has a long backorder list. The Globals are even more expensive than the 8X, at $71 million and $75 million, respectively, as is the Gulfstream, which runs upwards of $66 million.Dassault might be right about the market for the 8X, which offers a quick way for owners of earlier models to take a step up. The aircraft has a range of 6, 450 nautical miles (with eight passengers and three crew, at Mach 0.8), 500 more than the 7X. The extra range—courtesy of an additional center-fuselage fuel tank and a lighter, redesigned wing—enables the 8X to fly nonstop from Hong Kong to London, Paris to Singapore, and Beijing to Los Angeles. The reworked wing also keeps the 8X competitive on short runways; it needs 6, 000 feet to take off fully loaded but can stop in 2, 150 feet.The Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307D engines have been optimized to offer 6, 725 pounds of thrust each, with a 5 percent thrust increase and lower emissions. Dassault claims the 8X is more fuel-efficient than other offerings in this class.And you get all manner of other goodies that weren’t available when the 7X hit the market back in 2007. Things like:• A cabin altitude of just 3, 900 feet at a cruising altitude of 41, 000 feet, ensuring that you arrive at your destination not only freshly showered but alert and refreshed. (The 8X has a service ceiling of 51, 000 feet.)• More cabin layouts. Thanks to nearly 1, 700 cubic feet of space, you can choose from more than 30 layouts in three zone configurations. Possibilities include turning the aft cabin into a media lounge with oversized divans and a pop-up monitor or making it a separate stateroom with a sliding pocket door. Mid cabin there’s also space to install a six-seat conference grouping.• More cabin windows. You get four more than on the 7X for a total of 33. That means natural light in more places.• A choice of three galley layouts, and galleys that are 25 percent larger overall. The added space means you can accommodate the larger chillers and refrigerators envisioned to service passengers on what can be 14-hour flights.• New cabin seats that are electrically assisted and eliminate the traditional mechanical cabling system for greater reliability. Full electric function seats also will be available.• A new high-definition entertainment system.• New, color-adjustable LED lighting.• A new system that increases cabin humidity by at least 20 percent.• A redesigned convertible crew rest area opposite the galley that converts into a closet when not in use.• An optional vacuum lavatory in the forward cabin. (You really want this. Think odor abatement next to the galley. Enough said.) The vacuum lav in the aft cabin remains standard.• A better cockpit. It incorporates super-comfy seats and takes styling cues from Dassault’s new 5X twinjet. And it features the new EASy 3 glass-panel digital avionics, which are built around the Honeywell Primus Epic System and the Elbit head-up display, which combines enhanced and synthetic vision.The 8X builds on the features and flight characteristics that have made the 7X popular, adding increased utility and luxury. Dassault is so convinced that this is a winning formula that it already is expanding its completion facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. That seems like a prudent move, because while the new airplane may be only a few feet longer than its predecessor, it really is miles apart.Source: AIN Online news

It is always an opportunity for a job in branch of B.Tech Aeronautical, Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and Cabin Crew when more aircrafts are added or required at airport or airlines as per as the following news:INDIGO TO INDUCT 50 MORE AIRCRAFT, GIVING MAJOR BOOST TO UDAN INITIATIVE NEW DELHI: IndiGo, the country’s largest airline by market share, has announced plans to induct 50 smaller aircraft for regional routes, giving a major boost to the government’s ‘UDAN’ initiative to boost regional connectivity. IndiGo on Tuesday said it would add about 50 turboprop aircraft for regional operations that would be run by a separate division. Both travellers and operators have responded well to UDAN, or Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik, regional connectivity scheme under which Alliance Air, a subsidiary of national carrier Air India, has connected Delhi and Shimla, and Hyderabadbased TruJet has connected Hyderabad to Cuddapa and Nanded.Tru Jet has already announced plans to add more routes after initial success, while Alliance Air’s flights to Shimla from Delhi are sold out for the next two months. IndiGo is expected to start turboprop aircraft operation this year and is likely to induct 20 planes by the end of the calendar.“There is a lot of demand for seats, which we are not able to fulfill, ” said the person who requested not to be identified. Another senior official said that there is a technical solution to increase the number of seats available and the airline is working on it to make more number of seats available. Tru Jet flights, too, have good demand, with about 80 per cent of seats occupied. Vankayalapati Umesh, managing director at Turbo Megha Airways that operates TruJet, said about 50 to 55 out of 70 seats in its flights on both the sectors are full. “We see a lot of demand and future bookings also look healthy, ” he told ET. Umesh said Trujet will launch other regional flights next month as it is adding new aircraft by the end of this month. The airline currently operates a fleet of five 70-seater ATR aircraft. Out of these, 36 seats per flight are sold under the UDAN scheme. It sells these seats at Rs. 1, 700 each, and seeks government subsidy of Rs. 2, 500 per seat. Analysts feel it is too early to comment on the success of UDAN scheme. “Many of the routes that Alliance and TruJet have won appear to be high potential, ” said Amber Dubey, India head of aerospace and defense at global consultancy KPMG. He pointed out that it’s the summer holiday season, when families generally travel and a lot of people in Delhi and surroundings rush to hill stations such as Shimla for a brief respite from the scorching sun. “A clear assessment of route profitability can be done in January 2018 once the peak winter season comes to an end, ” Dubey said. “It would be important to see the occupancy and yield on non-RCS (regional connectivity scheme) seats on these flights. That will be an indicator of how sustainable the flights are once the VGF (viability gap funding) is withdrawn after three years.” Travel industry insiders expect the scheme to give at least 3-4 per cent push to aviation growth in the country. “With domestic aviation growing at around 20 per cent y-o-y, we expect that UDAN rollout across the country, and entry of new players (Qatar at national level and regional carriers at state level) will help aviation grow faster in the country, ” said Aloke Bajpai, CEO at travel search engine ixigo.com. “We expect to see UDAN contribute an incremental 3-4 per cent to the domestic air r passengers this year, ” he said.

Indigo is expected to start turboprop aircraft operation this year and is likely to induct 20 planes by the end of the calendar. “In support of our Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s UDAN vision, we are embarking on a journey to build a nationwide regional network and connect cities that have not benefitted from the growth in Indian aviation, ” IndiGo president Aditya Ghosh said in a statement. A pet project of Modi, UDAN scheme seeks to connect regional towns with a fare cap of Rs. 2, 500 per person per hour. The government provides a subsidy to compensate for any operational loss due to fare cap. Under the scheme, Alliance Air is offering a subsidized fare of Rs. 2, 036 per ticket and is getting a government subsidy of Rs. 3, 500 per seat. Alliance Air flies a 50-seater ATR aircraft on the route, but due to payload limitations, it “can offer only 35 seats between Delhi and Shimla, and between 12 and 19 seats in return, ” a senior Air India official said. “There is a lot of demand for seats, which we are not able to fulfill, ” said the person who requested not to be identified.Another senior official said that there is a technical solution to increase the number of seats available and the airline is working on it to make more number of seats available.

MORE JOB OPPUTUNITIES FOR AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERS, AME & AVIATION SECTOR JOBS, AFTER LAUNCHING OF UDAN SCHEME.Indore-Gwalior-Delhi flight under Udan schemeIndore: Under recently launched ‘Udan’ scheme, the city will be connected to Gwalior with a Indore-Gwalior-New Delhi flight. Gwalior has been identified as under-served airport. ATR plane service would be started by Alliance Air likely by September. The fare of Indore-Gwalior would be Rs 2500.Udan scheme is a component of the National Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP) which was released on June 15, 2016 and launched on April 27 by PM Narendra Modi in Shimla. Udan, a scheme with slogan of ‘Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik (Let fly common men of the country), is an endeavor to make regional connectivity easy with flights covering distances up to 800 km through a market-based mechanism.Aviation sources inform that following a study ministry of civil avaition had identified 43 cities which are either underserved or unserved. In Madhya Pradesh, Gwalior airport was identified as under-served one. Thus it has been listed for tapping under regional connectivity scheme (RCS). Gwalior is being linked with two commercially potential cities Indore and New Delhi. Thus a flight would be started connecting Gwalior with Indore and New Delhi.Sources said that though the scheme will be launched in four phases. Gwalior is placed in second phase will is as per schedule should roll out in June, but the most likely it may start from September this year. A present there is no air connectivity between Indore and Gwalior. Only road and rail connectivity is present there. Travel from both means takes almost 12 hour, while through flight it would be completed within one hour.Air India’s subsidiary Alliance Air will be operating flight between Indore-Gwalior-New Delhi under RCS. Alliance Air will operate regular flights using a 48-seater ATR-42 all-economy class aircraft.As per policy, from total seats 50 seats would be put under Udan scheme; where passenger will have to pay fare for one hour flight would be Rs 2500 only. This would be a subsidised fare for passenger. Government would pay the subsidy amount to airlines through Viability Gap Funding (VGF). The VGF will be used to bridge the gap between the cost of airline operations and expected revenue."Definitely we will support the Udan scheme from the city airport and make sure that the scheme is a huge success."Aryama Sanyal, Airport Director, Devi Ahilya Bai Holkar Airport

Udan scheme: implementation, traffic demand keyDeveloping regional routes under the Udan scheme is expected to eventually feed into major routes, and that augurs well for the aviation sectorLast week, the aviation ministry released a list of successful bidders under its Udan scheme, set to connect big cities with smaller towns. The five airlines that were awarded the rights to fly on so-called regional routes are Airline Allied Services (Air India’s subsidiary), SpiceJet Ltd, Turbo Megha Airways, Air Odisha and Air Deccan. Udan is short for Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik, which loosely translates as let the common man fly.Under the scheme, the selected airlines will enjoy a three-year exclusivity period on the specific routes they have won. This means there will be no competitive pressures to worry about during that time. Aviation turbine fuel tax rates have been reduced in collaboration with the states. There are no airport charges. Airlines will reserve 50% of seats under the stipulated fare cap.According to Dhiraj Mathur, partner and leader of the aerospace and defence practice at PwC India, “the difference between earlier attempts to boost regional airline connectivity and now is that there is immense government support in the form of lower taxes, viability gap funding (or subsidy) and assurances to build airport infrastructure.”But the challenges are immense. Regional airline operations are likely to be leaner with thin margins, meaning the biggest risk really is if the government doesn’t pay the subsidy on time. Getting payments from the government is a huge problem, as there are elements of red tape and corruption entwined here, said Mathur, adding, “Moreover, the state governments, too, have to live up to their commitments (as far as tax reliefs are concerned).”What about profitability? According to Ansuman Deb, an analyst at ICICI Securities Ltd, the government’s cost sops will ensure loss-free operations unless the traffic demand is very low. However, traffic growth is of supreme importance, and it is difficult to predict traffic demand on these routes. That uncertainty is a risk for this scheme. One of the biggest challenges in developing regional routes is the lack of depth in the market, translating into low load factors.In general, India has seen 20% domestic passenger traffic growth in recent years, according to data from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). Under the scheme, traffic demand situation will be clearer as the scheme progresses. “However, some routes have better potential than others like Delhi-Shimla, ” says Deb, adding, therefore, that the profitability of operators will be route-dependent. Fares on seats not part of the scheme and compensation airlines shall receive from the government will also play a key role in determining profits. It helps that the outlook on crude oil prices is muted from a medium-term perspective.An important objective of the scheme is to facilitate / stimulate regional air connectivity by making it affordable. Analysts say even as the intent of the policy is good and the efforts laudable, its success will depend on proper implementation and traffic demand/load factors. It’ll be a while before the results are visible, and its success can be measured. Needless to say, if the scheme is successful, it will have a positive impact on travel- and hospitality-related sectors. Domestic air-travel demand could get a fillip, which will be positive for the aviation sector from a long-term perspective. Developing regional routes is expected to eventually feed into major routes, and that augurs well for the sector.Source: LivemintWritten by: Pallavi PengondaDate: 04/04/2017
