first_imgHHLA reported revenues of EUR1,1 billion – a year-on-year decline of 8.2 percent. Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) tumbled 11.8 percent to approximately EUR185 million. The group blamed the weaker economic environment and cost of delayed infrastructure developments for the somewhat disappointing performance. HHLA will publish its final results for the 2012 year, along with a business forecast looking ahead through 2013 on 27 March. The Boeing Company and Singapore based airline SilkAir have embarked upon a five-year pilot training agreement. In November 2012, SilkAir – the regional wing of Singapore Airlines – finalised an order for 23 Next-Generation B737-800s and 31 B737 MAX 8s – the largest order in the young airline’s history. The new pilot training programme has been tailored to aid SilkAir’s staff transition to the new Boeing aircraft. Under the agreement, Boeing Flight Services will provide training to SilkAir staff at its Singapore training campus. The Baltic Air Charter Association (BACA), a non-profit membership organisation for the global air charter industry, has chosen MAF, a humanitarian organisation operating more than 135 light aircraft across 30 countries in the developing world as its designated charity for 2013. MAF UK, which was founded by air force personnel after the Second World War provides flights and logistical support to aid agencies, relief and development programmes operating outreach missions to remote communities in developing nations.

first_imgA medical worker gives a patient medical treatment in the ICU (intensive care unit) in Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University in Wuhan, central China’s Hubei Province, January 24, 2020. /Xinhua PhotoKenya’s national carrier on Wednesday announced that it was not planning to halt flights to China amid the coronavirus outbreak.Kenya Airways (KQ) said it would continue monitoring the situation in the meantime and would liaise with the government on the situation.“Cancellation of the flights is on the table but we are monitoring and we will take the action as soon as there’s eminent danger,” the airline’s acting chief executive officer Allan Kilavuka said Wednesday.“We are monitoring this on a very regular basis, as frequently as every one hour. We will make a decision in collaboration with the government on if and when we should suspend the flight,” he added.KQ’s decision comes other airlines suspended flight to China, including British Airways, Lion Air and Seoul Air.KQ’s announcement comes as the number of people who have died from the disease hit 132, with 6,078 confirmed cases as of 29 January 2020. 115 people have been discharged.Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier this week expressed confidence that the disease will be defeated in due course.“I have personally been directing the effort and deploying resources, I believe that as long as we strengthen our confidence, help each other, control and prevent the virus appropriately, and implement policies precisely, we will definitely overcome this disease,” President Xi said in a meeting with the World Health Organisation (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom.On his part, Adhanom hailed China for releasing information transparently, identifying pathogens in record time, and proactively sharing relevant viral gene sequences with the WHO and other countries.He added that the world admired how the Chinese government has demonstrated firm political determination and adopted timely and powerful policies in the face of the coronavirus.“I believe that the measures taken by China will effectively control and eventually overcome the disease,” he said.Related Kenya Airways launches flights to Rome, Geneva Kenya Airways resumes flights to South Sudancenter_img Kenya Airways to launch flights to Somalialast_img read more

first_imgTHERE’S no need for a PhD in basketball to assume that the 2019 NBA title will remain in the Bay Area.Unless season-ending injuries happen to three of their top stars, the trophy presentation will just be a formality.I had always been a Lakers fan but GSW will still be it for at least two more years.DeMarcus Cousins perhaps is the league’s best offensive center and he came to GS cheap.  He probably won’t be ready to play until after the All-Star break but it’s a minor inconvenience. When DMC finally sees action, the Death Lineup becomes a Doomsday Five. Consider a starting unit of five all-stars, among them two former league MVPs and a Finals MVP coming off the bench.These teams, in particular order, will try to give headaches to Coach Steve Kerr:HOUSTON ROCKETS – Chris Paul is 33 years old and with the coming of Brandon Knight and Michael Carter-Williams, the team must rest him in the regular season.  His playoff importance was clear as daylight when his hamstring sent him to the cheering squad in Games 6 and 7.  Like CP3’s entry to the Rockets last year, Carmelo Anthony’s presence is more of questions than answers but he will fit into coach Mike D’Antoni’s system.   Marquese Chriss adds depth to their young frontline.NEW ORLEANS PELICANS – I’m ranking the Pels next to Houston mainly because of their improved length.  Anthony Davis now has Julius Randle to back him up in addition to Nikola Mirotic, Alexis Ajinca and the two Okafors, Emeka and Jahlil.  Elfrid Payton at the point will compensate for Rajon Rondo’s loss and backstop Jrue Holiday.OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER – Crown him or frown on him, Russell Westbrook get things done for the Thunder.  They improved on their bigs with the entry of Nerlens Noel and Dennis Schroeder is an upgrade on Raymond Felton.  Andre Roberson is healthy and, of course, retaining Paul George is their biggest achievement.SAN ANTONIO SPURS – Because of coach Gregg Popovich, I’m not counting out this team yet.  The Kawhi Leonard drama is finally over and the Spurs can move on without him, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker.  DeMar DeRozan could be the new face of the franchise.  Old by NBA standards, 38-year Pau Gasol is still productive in limited minutes so the frontline of LaMarcus Aldridge, Jakob Poetl, Joffrey Lauvergne, Davis Bertans, Rudy Gay, and Dante Cunningham should produce.   San Antonio for me has one of the league’s deepest frontcourt.LA LAKERS – It’s been a while the NBA postseason had missed the Lake Show and yes, we’ll finally see them in the playoffs.  This time, LeBron James has a much better support crew than last year.  He won’t be wasting his time in LA to wait and see what happens as reportedly, the complex blend of characters was his choice.  Hold your horses Laker Nation, the LeBrakers won’t get past the second round of the playoffs.DENVER NUGGETS – Isaiah Thomas could find redemption in Denver and Michael Porter Jr. just might be this year’s rookie surprise.  Nikola Jokic is their only true double-double center but Paul Millsap and Trey Lyles can also provide the muscle and points down low.   Another scoring option is Will Barton.Utah and Portland are two teams that can also contend.  I could be wrong on rankings on this list but more or less, barring any serious injuries, these teams will make Golden State take Tylenol as often and as needed./PNlast_img read more
