ANA Confirmed as Launch Customer for Boeing’s Insight Accelerator – Travel News Asia


(21/09/22)
 
All Nippon Airways (ANA) has been confirmed as
the launch customer for Boeing’s Insight Accelerator (IA), a new
cloud-based digital solution employing artificial intelligence to
improve operational efficiency and avoid high impact service
disruptions.

While the latest generation of commercial
airplanes like the 787 generate a large amount of flight data,
many operators lack the infrastructure to manage and leverage the
information. By using augmented analytics to discover and deploy
predictive algorithms for anomaly detection, our Insight
Accelerator solution enables airlines to take proactive
maintenance and repair action and prevent unscheduled delays.

“There are many products on the market for flight
data analytics but Insight Accelerator is the most effective tool
for our aircraft operation,” said Manubu Tono, All Nippon
Airways manager of Planning & Administration, Engineering. “It’s
very innovative, and meets our primary goal of leveraging features
in flight data that indicate a system failure before it happens.”

Boeing developed the IA platform based on decades
of experience supporting the global fleet and developing rigorous
methods while assisting ‘Airplane-on-Ground’ situations.

“IA’s built-in artificial intelligence, guided
exploration and powerful visualizations allow airlines to
investigate flight and maintenance data, identify trends and
discover insights – all without specialized coding or programming
skills,” said Duane Wehking, vice president of Digital Aviation
Solutions at Boeing Global Services. “This is an easy-to-use
solution that will provide value to airlines from day one.”

Based in Tokyo, ANA was the global launch operator
of the 787 Dreamliner and is a launch customer for the 777X
family. The carrier became the first airline in Japan to order the
737 MAX with firm orders for 20 737-8s, and currently operates
more than 170 Boeing jets. The airline operates the world’s largest 787
fleet with 77 Dreamliners including all three sub-models.

MotoGP Stars Learn Muay Thai Ahead of Thailand Grand Prix in Buriram (บุรีรัมย์) – Travel News Asia


(28/09/22)
 
The MotoGP title contenders and their crew are
in Thailand for this weekend’s OR Thailand Grand Prix in Buriram
(บุรีรัมย์).

The gaps remain fairly tight despite the drama in
Motegi, Japan, but with the rounds counting down fast the pressure
is on.

Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) is
looking for a lot more than eighth, and at a track where the
second half of the lap should certainly suit a little more, Aleix
Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) will be looking for a drama-free
weekend after losing the chance to capitalise in Japan, and
Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) will have one thing on his
mind: redemption.

Eighteen points is now much more significant there
are only 100 left in play, and Quartararo will hope good memories
of Buriram (บุรีรัมย์) can replay this weekend as he aims to get
back on the podium and start from the front row – with the
Frenchman finding overtaking close to the limit.

For Aleix Espargaro the frustration was also
palpable, but for different reasons. The Aprilia rider had a solid
race and his pace was good, too – he just had to start from
pit lane after his first bike was left in fuel saving mode.

Teammate Maverick Viñales likewise left
Japan with less than he’d hoped for, and he said it was the tire
choice that hampered a podium charge.

Enea Bastianini (Gresini Racing MotoGP) could be
another to watch. It was a middling weekend at Motegi and he only
lost a point to Quartararo, but with the biggest deficit to make
up of the riders who remain more than simply mathematical
challengers for the crown, it wasn’t enough – and Buriram will
need to be much more to keep the ‘Beast’ in with a shot.

With
Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing) taking a podium too, it wasn’t
just being Jack Miller that was the key to solid points in Japan,
so Bastianini and Johann Zarco (Prima Pramac Racing) will want to
hit back at Buriram.

For KTM, Japan definitely did taste sweet. Both
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing machines finished in the top five –
only Ducati managed the same or better – and Brad Binder took a
second dry weather podium of the season. After rain in qualifying
saw the South African boss it on Saturday, a front row start – his
first in the premier class – certainly helped the cause, but
teammate Miguel Oliveira was a little further back and also
managed his Sunday charge.

There was, of course, one huge headline in Japan,
aside from the title contenders and the actual winner of the Grand
Prix: Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team). His pole position on
Saturday saw him back on top for the first time in 1071 days, and
the number 93 was no slouch on race day either. Motegi is a tough
track, physically, so a fourth place is another sign of the soft
Jaws music starting to creep back in from the eight-time World
Champion. Buriram is another he’s ruled, and although rain in
qualifying at Motegi saw him able to play his dice to perfection,
we can likely expect him to feature highly on the grid in Thailand
too – and maybe take another step on Sunday.

With a final corner set up to deliver a showdown,
Buriram promises much as the final race of the triple header.

MotoGP Championship: Top 5

1 Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™)
– Yamaha – 219
2 Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) –
Ducati – 201
3 Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) – Aprilia – 194
4 Enea Bastianini (Gresini Racing MotoGP™) – Ducati – 170
5
Jack Miller (Ducati Lenovo Team) – Ducati – 159

Fighting Spirit

Before they fight it out on the track, a few
riders got a taste of Muay Thai.

Home heroes Somkiat Chantra (Idemitsu Honda Team
Asia) and Keminth Kubo (Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team) were joined
at the special event by Alex Marquez (LCR Honda Castrol), Fabio Di
Giannantonio (Gresini Racing MotoGP), Albert Arenas (Inde GASGAS
Aspar) and Moto3 Championship leader Izan Guevara (Gaviota GASGAS
Aspar Team) to try out the world famous discipline.

Middle East Airlines Enhances Operations at BEY with SITA’s Cloud-Based Technology – Travel News Asia


(28/09/22)
 
Middle East Airlines (MEA) has
renewed a technology contract with SITA and moved the airport’s
baggage reconciliation system (BRS) at Rafic Hariri International
Airport (BEY) in Beirut to the cloud.

By installing SITA’s Bag Manager cloud solution,
the airport will be able to process around nine million bags per
year compared to three million bags in previous years without any
significant equipment investment.

The cloud-based technology solution will also be
pivotal in reducing the number of mishandled bags and supporting
quick repatriation of mishandled ones, leading to higher customer
satisfaction and decreased costs.

SITA Bag Manager tracks every
bag loaded onto an aircraft, a unit load device (ULD) or a cart.
It scans and evaluates the characteristics of each bag against the
flight parameters to ensure bags are loaded onto the right
aircraft.

The SITA Baggage IT Insights 2022 report revealed
that the global mishandled baggage rate increased by 24% to 4.35
bags per thousand passengers in 2021 as the industry recovered
from the pandemic, primarily impacted by the quick resumption of
international travel and reduced workforces.

Dr. Adib Charif, Head of IT, MEA, said, “SITA has
been the provider of BRS at Rafic Hariri International Airport –
Beirut since 2009, and we’re excited to continue our technology
partnership with this next stage of our digitalization program. By
moving a server-based system to the cloud, we’ve cut down on
cumbersome operation procedures, eliminated regular maintenance
costs, and freed up resources to focus on other essential
services. We’re committed to giving passengers a seamless
passenger journey and leading the way in the region during the
industry recovery.”

MEA is the flag carrier of Lebanon and represents
around 40% of the traffic at the airport.

Middle East Airline
Ground Handing (MEAG, a subsidiary of MEA) represents 80% of the
baggage processing at the airport, while the remaining 20% is
handled by The Lebanese Air Transport (LAT) ground handlers,
which also installed SITA’s cloud-based BRS.

Integration with other SITA baggage solutions such
as Bag Journey and WorldTracer further helps to reduce the number
of mishandled baggage and quickly repatriate any mishandled ones.

Hani El Asaad, President, Middle East & Africa
SITA, said, “We’ve seen a global trend in the rate of mishandled
bags increasing in line with the rapid resumption of international
travel. Technology holds the solutions to the challenges our
industry is facing during this transformative post-pandemic
period, where airports and airlines need to achieve more with
less. We’re excited to partner again with MEA to deliver a smart
and agile cloud-based solution to overcome these hurdles, increase
operational efficiency and boost passenger confidence.”
