British Airways extends successful trial of digital health pass VeriFLY

British Airways has made this announcement:

  • British Airways and American Airlines were the first airlines to trial mobile digital health pass, VeriFLY by Daon
  • Over 500,000 customers have successfully used the pass to make sure they have the right documentation ahead of their flights
  • British Airways has extended its relationship with VeriFLY following the rollout of the technology across its network, with particular focus on the US ahead of its opening to UK and European citizens from November 8
  • The airline is on track to ensure that the whole of its route network is covered by a functionality that allows customers to have their documents checked before travel by the end of the year
  • British Airways is working with VeriFLY to ensure that customers connecting with other carriers, can use the platform to certify their documentation

British Airways has announced that following the successful trial of mobile health pass, VeriFLY by Daon, and its subsequent rollout across its network, it has signed a long-term agreement with Daon.

The airline has worked closely with Daon to make travel as frictionless and smooth as possible for its customers. Travelers can upload any Covid-19 related documentation required for their destination, including vaccination records, negative Covid-19 results and government documents, straight into the VeriFLY mobile app so that they are verified before travel. This will let customers know if they have met the appropriate Covid-19 entry requirements for their destination before leaving for the airport, avoiding any uncertainty.

As well as ensuring a customer has the correct documentation for their journey, British Airways has further developed the technology to allow customers using VeriFLY to check in online on BA.com. Boarding passes can be downloaded ahead of arriving at the airport and customers traveling with hand luggage can head straight through security without the need to visit a desk once they arrive at the airport, further increasing the capability for contactless travel.

The airline initially started trialling VeriFLY in February 2021 on selected routes and has seen over 500,000 customers successfully verified before travel. VeriFLY is now available on all flights to North, South and Central America the Caribbean, Middle East, South Africa, Cayman Islands, Egypt and European destinations including Bulgaria, France, Croatia, Ireland and Switzerland, as well as on the majority of flights into the UK.

British Airways is working closely with Daon to make the customer experience even easier. Most recently it has extended the capability to read QR codes that appear on documentation such as a vaccination certificate or the UK passenger locator form, making document submission simple.

For multiple customers traveling on one booking reference, they can use one smart phone to upload all documentation. The airline is also working closely with other airlines on the role that VeriFLY plays in multi sector journeys.

All data uploaded to VeriFLY or through www.ba.com is not retained by either organization and is purged post travel, unless a government requires specific information to be temporary kept for attestation or contact tracing, in which case it will be safeguarded for a limited time strictly in line with GDPR laws.

For all other countries that British Airways flies to, customers can verify their COVID-19 documents through ‘Manage My Booking’ on ba.com and once verified they will be able to check-in online. Destinations include Hong Kong, Nigeria, Ghana, Singapore, India, Maldives and Pakistan, as well as a handful of European destinations

Scoot returns to Berlin

Scoot resumed three-times-weekly nonstop flights between Singapore and Berlin on October 19,  2021, following Singapore’s expansion of its Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTL) arrangements.

Scoot also increase the frequency of its non-VTL Singapore-AthensBerlin return flights to four-times-weekly..

Customers on these flights will have to undergo prevailing Stay Home Notice measures when they arrive in Singapore. This will allow eligible vaccinated passengers to avoid the need for quarantine in Singapore, subject to them meeting regulatory requirements.

Scoot is also preparing to operate VTL flights to Seoul, South Korea, subject to regulatory approval. The commencement date will be announced in due course.

QANTAS and Jetstar will bring forward the restart of more international flights to popular destinations from Sydney, will accelerate the return of the A380

QANTAS Airways Airbus A380-842 VH-OQC (msn 022) LAX (Ton Jochems). Image: 955608.

QANTAS Airways has made this announcement:

  • All Australian-based Qantas and Jetstar employees able to return to work in early December 21
  • Qantas to launch new route from Sydney to Delhi before Christmas*
  • Flights from Sydney to Singapore, Bangkok, Phuket, Johannesburg, Fiji to resume ahead of schedule
  • Early return of the A380
  • More Points Planes for frequent flyers

Qantas and Jetstar will bring forward the restart of more international flights to popular destinations from Sydney and operate regular flights to Delhi, the first commercial flights for Qantas between Australia and India in almost a decade.

The national carrier will also bring back two of its Airbus A380 aircraft earlier than planned and is in discussions with Boeing about accelerating the delivery of three brand new 787 Dreamliners, which have been in storage for most of the pandemic.

The faster ramp up follows the Federal and New South Wales governments confirming that international borders would reopen from 1 November 2021 and the decision by the NSW Government to remove quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated arrivals – which significantly increases travel demand.

These decisions – combined with plans by states and territories to reopen domestic borders – support all Qantas and Jetstar workers based in Australia and New Zealand who are currently stood down to return to work by early December 2021. This includes around 5,000 employees linked to domestic flying and around 6,000 linked to international flying.

Due to extended border closures, many international crew have been stood down since the start of the pandemic. Combined with operational and corporate employees already working, the Group’s 22,000 employees are able to return to work in December, which wasn’t expected to happen until June 2022.

International schedule update

Qantas plans to launch a new route from Sydney to Delhi on 6 December 2021 with three return flights per week with its A330 aircraft, building to daily flights by end of the year. This is subject to discussions with Indian authorities to finalise necessary approvals. The flights would initially operate until at least late March 2022, with a view to continuing if there is sufficient demand. Flights from Sydney to Delhi would operate via Darwin, while flights from Delhi to Sydney would operate nonstop.

The updated international schedule published today also includes:

  • Sydney to Singapore: Qantas flights will resume on 23 November 2021, four weeks earlier than scheduled, operating three days per week with A330 aircraft. Services will ramp up to daily from 18 December 2021. Jetstar will fly from Melbourne and Darwin to Singapore from 16 December 2021.
  • Sydney to Fiji (Nadi): Qantas flights will be brought forward to 7 December 2021 from 19 December 2021. Four return flights a week will be operated by 737 aircraft. Jetstar flights to Fiji will resume on 17 December 2021. Within 48 hours of Fiji announcing its reopening, Jetstar saw a 200 per cent increase in sales versus pre-COVID levels, selling more fares than a typical seven day period.
  • Sydney to Johannesburg: Qantas flights will resume on 5 January 2022, three months earlier than scheduled. Three return flights a week will be operated by 787 aircraft.
  • Sydney to Bangkok: Qantas flights will resume on 14 January 2022, more than two months earlier than scheduled. Five return flights a week will be operated by A330 aircraft.
  • Sydney to Phuket: Jetstar flights will resume on 12 January 2022, more than two months earlier than scheduled. Three return flights a week will be operated by 787 aircraft.

Qantas has also launched additional Points Planes – where every seat in every cabin on a flight is available to book as a reward seat.

Discussions have commenced with the NSW Government about supporting some of Qantas’ international services to Sydney through its recently announced Aviation Attraction Fund. Discussions are also underway with the Indonesian Government about welcoming fully vaccinated Australians back to Bali with reduced or no quarantine requirements, which would mean the resumption of Jetstar and Qantas flights from Sydney to the holiday island months earlier than scheduled.

Today’s announcement is in addition to routes already on sale from Sydney to London and Los Angeles. Bookings on these routes have been extremely strong, with more than 10 additional return services added between Sydney and London due to demand from Australians coming home in time for Christmas.

Qantas frequent flyers have also been booking seats in record numbers, with the largest number of points used on reward seats for a single day in the airline’s history occurring on Tuesday this week, with more than half a billion points redeemed. Frequent flyers can use their points to book one of millions of seats across Qantas, Jetstar and partner airlines as borders open.

Flights to Honolulu, Vancouver, Tokyo and New Zealand are still scheduled to commence from mid-December 2021, with other destinations to restart in the new year.

In line with current Federal Government requirements, these initial flights are limited to Australian citizens, permanent residents and their immediate families and parents.

Fleet update

Qantas has further accelerated the return of its fleet of A380 aircraft.

Originally expected to remain in long term storage in the Californian desert until the end of 2023, the Group announced in August that five A380s with upgraded cabins would return from July 2022 to operate Los Angeles and London flights. This is now being brought forward a further three months, with two of the A380s to commence flights to Los Angeles from April 2022. One aircraft could arrive by the end of this year to assist with crew training ahead of its return to service.

A further three A380s will return to service from mid-November 2022 with the remaining five expected to return to service by early 2024.

Qantas is also looking to bring forward delivery of three brand new 787-9 aircraft, currently in storage with Boeing, several months earlier than planned as demand increases.

Jetstar will bring the remaining five of its 11 Boeing 787-8s out of storage in Alice Springs over the coming months.

Domestic update

Qantas and Jetstar are preparing to ramp up capacity between Melbourne and Sydney as quarantine-free travel is set to resume between Australia’s two largest cities. Pre-COVID, Melbourne-Sydney was the second busiest route in the world, with the Group operating up to 58 return services per day, but during the latest lockdowns this got down to as low as one return flight per day for essential travel only.

When the Victorian and NSW borders open, Qantas and Jetstar will operate up to 18 return flights per day, increasing to up to 37 return flights per day by Christmas. Additional capacity will be added on other routes to and from Sydney and Melbourne, as restrictions are lifted by other states and territories.

And from Melbourne:

Qantas will bring forward international flights from Melbourne following the Victorian Government’s decision to remove quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated travellers returning from overseas from November.

The national carrier welcomes the decision by the Victorian Government, which was made possible by the huge number of Victorians who have rolled up their sleeves to get vaccinated.

The updated international schedule out of Melbourne published today includes:

  • Melbourne to London: Qantas flights will be brought forward to 6 November 2021, six weeks earlier than scheduled, operating two days per week with 787 aircraft and ramping up to daily from 18 December 2021.
  • Melbourne to Singapore: Qantas flights will be brought forward to 22 November 2021, three weeks ahead of scheduled, operating three days per week with A330 aircraft and ramping up to daily from 18 December. Jetstar will also recommence flying four times a week between Melbourne and Singapore using 787 aircraft, a route it hasn’t flown since 2019.

Qantas will offer the first three return services on both routes as Points Planes meaning frequent flyers can access every seat across every cabin as Classic Flight Reward seats. Seats on these flights will also be available as regular flight bookings.

Victorian customers can also now book onward flights to other international destinations including Los Angeles (1 November), Fiji (7 December), Johannesburg (5 January) and Bangkok (14 January) via Sydney.

Flights from Melbourne to Los Angeles will restart from 18 December 2021 with other destinations scheduled to recommence in the new year. Qantas and Jetstar will look at bringing forward additional destinations if possible.   

Initial flights are limited to Australian citizens, permanent residents and their immediate families and parents in line with Federal Government requirements.

JAL conducts environmental survey in Osaka to realize eVTOL

Japan Airlines Co., Ltd.  (JAL) is aiming to launch an Air Taxi business using eVTOL* in FY 2025, and plans include a scenic flight to view the area around Yumeshima, the venue for the OSAKA-KANSAI World Exposition to be held in the same year, and an Air Taxi service connecting the venue and Kansai International Airport(KIX),etc.

At this time, JAL has been selected by the Osaka Prefectural Government to participate in the “Demonstration Test toward the Realization of eVTOL (hereinafter “the project”)”(*1), and will conduct a demonstration experiment using helicopters in Osaka.

Outline of the Demonstration Test:

Implementation period: November 2021 – February 2022
​Implementation details:

① Verification based on actual operation (scheduled for November 2021)
We will conduct actual helicopter flights over Yumeshima, the site of EXPO 2025 OSAKA, KANSAI, JAPAN, to investigate the constraints on the flight environment and ground facilities. This will lead to the establishment of a flight environment in which diverse aircraft can coexist.

② Verification of social acceptability (scheduled for February 2022)
In cooperation with Volocopter, GmbH (*2), which is participating in the Osaka Roundtable (*3) for the social implementation of eVTOL together with JAL, this virtual flight combines a helicopter flight scenery over Osaka with an in-flight view of eVTOL. In addition to making eVTOL feel familiar to many people, we will conduct a survey on customer expectations by conducting a questionnaire before and after experiencing a virtual flight, and utilize the results for the future realization of eVTOL in the Osaka area.

“eVTOL” is expected to play an active role in a wide range of fields, such as Air Taxi services, emergency
lifesaving and disaster response, taking advantage of its mobility similar to that of a helicopter. JAL will use the results obtained from this project in cooperation with the Osaka Roundtable to contribute to the realization and popularization of eVTOL, which Osaka aims to achieve

eVTOL :electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing: A small aircraft that can take off and land vertically by rotating multiple rotors with an electric motor. It attracts attention as a means of next-generation transporting that fuses drone and electric vehicle technologies.

Previously the airline made this announcement:

Fiji Airways releases a new eco-focused in-flight safety video, will return December 1

Fiji Airways has introduced a new safety video:

Fiji Airways is returning to service on December 1. To celebrate the return, the airline has launched an eco-focused in-flight safety video, teasing international travelers with footage of tropical islands and breathtaking natural wonders, all while championing the local businesses and communities helping to preserve it.

Shot across seven locations, the five-minute safety briefing is delivered amongst some of the many initiatives being undertaken to preserve Fiji’s beautiful yet fragile home. These include Mangrove Rehabilitation projects, solar powered resorts, turtle sanctuaries and coral nurseries, among others.

With more than 84% of the adult population double vaccinated, and a mandate for all adult employees to be fully vaxxed by 1st November, Fiji is on track to be one the most COVID-safe travel destinations on the planet. And with flights from the United States resuming from 30th November Fiji Airways’ Managing Director & CEO Andre Viljoen hopes the latest production will no doubt get travellers dreaming of a White Sand Christmas.

“The unveiling of this production is more than just another safety video. It’s very symbolic of the journey we have been on for the past 18 months and our return to the skies in an eco-sustainable manner. The production started before COVID-19 struck, so to be able to finally play it onboard our aircraft signals that we are very close to welcoming tourists back to Fiji,” said Viljoen.

The video which opens up on Fiji’s iconic Malamala Beach Club includes a number of pilots and cabin crew in addition to professional actors. From under-water shots to high flying drone action, the production takes viewers on a journey of discovery into Fiji’s vast and beautiful environment. At each location a local resort, business or initiative is introduced by the cabin crew member and championed for its eco-sustainability efforts. It also features footage onboard Fiji Airways’ luxurious A350 aircraft – it’s most eco-sustainable aircraft to date.

Current Fiji Airways staff feature heavily in the production, including First Officer Pilots Petrina Simpson and Vinay Makanji , as well as Lounge staff member Liku Gucake. The voiceover used throughout is also that of Reservations Senior Manager Anna Morris – adding to its authenticity and playing homage to Fiji’s family values.

It also features cameo appearances from Fiji’s world renowned Fijiana womens and Fijian Mens rugby sevens teams, who are fresh from recent success in Tokyo. Fijiana players Tokasa Seniyasai, Reijeli Uluinayau and Verenaisi Bari feature alongside their male counterparts Ratu Mele Derenalagi, Alasio Naduva, and Livai Ikanikoda. Plus, past and present players from the popular Crusaders Super Rugby team, Manasa MataeleTom Christie and Inga Finau.

The production team spent months researching some of the incredible environmental initiatives taking place across Fiji’s 300+ islands. While some locations narrowly missed the cut, the film directed by Edward Copestick was structured in such a way to allow new initiatives to feature in future iterations of the production.

“As an airline, eco-sustainability is a journey we are committed to taking.  Fuel is a major contributor to an airline’s carbon emissions, and we use state-of-the-art software systems like SkyBreathe to monitor, track and optimize our use of fuel. Over the years, aircraft technology has advanced, airframes have become lighter and pilots more aware of economical fuel burn. All this contributes to lower fuel usage by modern aircraft. Fiji Airways has two A350 XWB aircraft and five Boeing 737 MAX in its fleet, which are among the most fuel-efficient aircraft in the world. The reduction in fuel usage and carbon dioxide emission is a focus for our airline, and aligned with the leadership role that Fiji plays in bringing the world’s attention to the adverse impact of climate change on nations like ours. ”

The new safety video will screen onboard all Fiji Airways international flights from December 1, 2021.
