TACV arrives at Providence (PVD)(LR)

TACV – Cabo Verde Airlines (Praia, Cape Verde Islands) yesterday (June 3) began service to T.F. Green Airport (PVD) in Providence, Rhode Island. TACV is the official airline of Cabo Verde and offers twice weekly flights on Tuesdays and Thursday aboard 210-seat Boeing 757-200 aircraft to the city of Praia on the island of Santiago. Connecting service is also available to the Cape Verdean islands of Fogo, Sao Vincente, Sal and Boa Vista.

TACV – Cabo Verde Airlines had previously served the Cape Verdean community with flights out of Boston Logan Airport. The Cape Verdean community has a strong presence throughout New England and in some areas communities are actually closer in proximity to Green Airport. The service has traditionally been geared towards linking family and friends; however, there is a new emphasis on growing it as a tourist destination by promoting the islands’ beauty, climate, hiking, surfing and other water sports. In the coming months, the airline hopes to add to its frequency and service offerings.

Later this month, Green Airport also welcomes a second international carrier- Condor Airlines with seasonal service to and from Frankfurt, Germany and connecting European destinations.

United Airlines (Chicago) and Massport (Boston) today unveiled a new 10-gate concourse in Boston Logan International Airport’s Terminal B that lets customers travel more quickly and efficiently while enjoying state-of-the-art amenities.

Scheduled to open April 30, the Terminal B concourse brings United’s Boston operations together under one roof, offering greater convenience and consistency to the airline’s customers.

The new space features several of the latest self-service technologies that will streamline the airport experience for seasoned travelers and enable United employees to spend more time with customers who need extra assistance. These modern features include self-tagging baggage kiosks, automated self-boarding gates and a new customer service center that allows passengers to resolve routine travel issues more easily.

United and Massport invested more than $170 million to build the 97,000-square-foot Terminal B concourse, which includes a new ticketing lobby, improved security screening checkpoints and a spacious United Club lounge for the airline’s premium customers. Travelers will also enjoy the concourse’s contemporary design and conveniences, highlighted by accessible in-seat power and a variety of comfortable seating choices.

The new United Club at Logan Airport – the fourth lounge to feature the airline’s new design concept – provides a getaway where customers can relax or maximize productivity. Located atop the Terminal B concourse, the 8,000-square-foot lounge features spectacular views of the airfield and Boston Harbor. The club has an aviation theme with contemporary furnishings, complimentary Wi-Fi, abundant power outlets and a wide range of beverage and snack choices.

United has proudly served the Boston community for decades, providing customers up to 50 daily departures to each of the airline’s domestic hubs and access to United’s leading global route network. The airline will operate its first flights out of the new Terminal B concourse on April 30.

Beginning May 19, United will launch service with the newest addition to the United Express fleet, the Embraer 175 aircraft, on the Boston-Chicago route. The Embraer 175 offers more personal space for customers, with wider seats and aisles than other regional aircraft.

Travelers should note United Airlines is in the process of moving flight operations from Terminals A and C to B at Logan Airport. Starting on Tuesday April 29, late night inbound flights from 9 PM (2100) onward will fly into Terminal B. On Wednesday April 30, all inbound and outbound flights will be in Terminal B.

A fire breaks out in the battery compartment of a Japan Airlines’ 787 on the ground at Boston’s Logan Airport

JAL-Japan Airlines logo-1

Japan Airlines-JAL‘s (Tokyo) flight JL 8 with a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner (JA829J) arrived from Tokyo (Narita) at Boston (Logan) this morning at 10 a.m. (1000). The 173 arriving passengers and 11 crew members had just disembarked according to this report by the Boston Globe. The cleaners who boarded the aircraft reported smelling smoke and a fire was discovered in the lower level battery compartment. The airport ARFF units put out the fire out before it could spread.

Boeing has been investigating electrical issues on other 787 Dreamliners and has issued the following statement:

Regarding Monday’s event onboard a Japan Airlines (JAL) 787 at Boston Logan Airport, we are working closely with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), our customer and other government agencies. JAL has reported that smoke detected while a 787 was on the ground after passengers disembarked and during cleaning was traced to the battery used to start the auxiliary power unit (APU).

As is standard practice within the industry, it would be premature to discuss additional details at this stage as the investigation is ongoing. However, nothing that we’ve seen in this case indicates a relationship to any previous 787 power system events, which involved power panel faults elsewhere in the aft electrical equipment bay. Information about the prior events has been shared with the NTSB and they are aware of the details.

Boeing is cooperating with the NTSB in the investigation of this incident. Before providing more detail, we will give our technical teams the time they need to do a thorough job and ensure we are dealing with facts, not speculation.
