Airbus is weighing the development of a freighter version of its wide-body A350 aircraft, the European manufacturer's chief commercial officer said Tuesday, a move that could take on rival Boeing in the air cargo market. Rates surged after the virus and travel restrictions devastated passenger travel, taking airplane belly space out of the market, creating a supply crunch. Snarls at ports have also boosted demand for air cargo. "That has somewhat exacerbated the fact that the freighter market is underserved by Airbus today," Chief Commercial Officer Christian Scherer said on a webcast briefing. Please do so on the freighter market as well.'

Airlines for Europe (A4E), which represents the region's biggest carriers, said the so-called EU261 regulation had severely exacerbated the financial crisis for many airlines. "We're looking for a more balanced approach to consumer protection," Air France-KLM Chief Executive Ben Smith said, adding that the European Union's passenger rights law was "one of the most punitive" in the world. The European Commission indicated it was not ready to consider any weakening of passenger rights. "We have always tried to strike the right balance between consumer protection and the protection of the tourism and transport industry," an EU official said. "The continued and improved protection of passenger rights is crucial to ensuring the necessary consumer trust in the transport sector."

Unions and local politicians have been fighting to defend the plant since Airbus stopped building the A380 superjumbo. Tensions erupted earlier this year when a top German executive said the Airbus plant - one of two in Cadiz - was “not competitive”. Spanish unions are reluctant to complete negotiations on a broader Airbus coronavirus restructuring plan until Puerto Real’s future is settled, people familiar with the talks said. Airbus said it was assessing Spanish operations “from a workload perspective” and wanted to ensure the viability and competitiveness of Cadiz. Unemployment-stricken Cadiz is the latest irritant to see-saw relations between Airbus and Spain, which owns 4% of the group.

REUTERS/Gonzalo Fuentes/File PhotoFrance will order a strict 10-day quarantine for all travellers coming from Brazil starting April 24, the prime minister's office said on Saturday, in a bid to prevent the spread of a coronavirus variant first found in the South American county. France decided this week to suspend all flights to and from Brazil. The measure will be extended until April 23, the prime minister's office said in the same statement. The government will impose a 10-day quarantine on all travellers upon arrival, the prime minister's office said, and authorities will make checks before and after the flight that the travellers made the proper arrangements to isolate themselves. A 10-day quarantine will also be imposed on travellers coming from the French Guiana, an overseas department of France on the northeast coast of South America.

French lawmakers approve a ban on short domestic flights

FILE PHOTO: An Air France Airbus A350 airplane lands at the Charles-de-Gaulle airport in Roissy, near Paris, France April 2, 2021. REUTERS/Christian Hartmann//File PhotoPARIS (Reuters) - French lawmakers voted late on Saturday to abolish domestic flights on routes than can be covered by train in under two-and-a-half hours, as the government seeks to lower carbon emissions even as the air travel industry reels from the global pandemic. The measure is part of a broader climate bill that aims to cut French carbon emissions by 40% in 2030 from 1990 levels, though activists accuse President Emmanuel Macron of watering down earlier promises in the draft legislation. Industry Minister Agnes Pannier-Runacher dismissed criticism from the aviation industry that a pandemic recovery was not the time to ban some domestic flights, and said there was no contradiction between the bailout and the climate bill. The bill goes to the Senate before a third and final vote in the lower house, where Macron’s ruling party and allies dominate.

PARIS (Reuters) - Easter at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport typically starts two weeks early as extra staff are trained to cope with one of the busiest weekends of the year. Air France typically serves Tunis with 150-seat jets. Adjusting for different dates for Easter, throughput on the few open concourses is closer to 20-25% of a usual Easter. Terminal 2E, usually used by Air France and partners for U.S. flights, is handling all long-range traffic, throwing competing carriers from across the globe into a shared space. Terminal 2 opened in 1982 as a hub for Air France, with its undulating modular design shortening the time from gate to kerb.

It is not considering lifting separate entry bans on most non-U.S. citizens who have recently been in China or Iran, the officials said. Many administration officials argue the restrictions no longer make sense given that most countries around the world are not subject to the entry ban. They contend lifting the restrictions would be a boost to struggling U.S. airlines, which have seen international travel fall by 70%, according to airline industry data. Trump may still opt not to lift the restrictions, given the high number of coronavirus infections in Europe. The European countries that are subject to the U.S. entry restrictions include the 26 members of the Schengen area that allow travel across open borders.

REUTERS/Christian HartmannCarriers and airports are pushing for uniform global testing guidelines to waive strict quarantine requirements that are decimating travel, with airline trade group IATA forecasting a 66% decline in 2020 air traffic because of the pandemic. Certain airlines require passengers to obtain a negative test, even as some countries allow visitors in without quarantine, while others bar all non-essential foreigners. The manual is not expected to suggest specific tests, such as antigen or polymerase chain reaction (PCR), the sources said. One of the sources said a range of tests, with reliability as low as around 80% to close to 100%, had initially been considered. Another proposal is that passengers be tested up to 48 hours ahead of travel but not necessarily at the airport, the sources said.
