Working Relationships: Virgin Galactic and Business Travel Direct | Buying Business Travel | Erin's mental travel talk | Scoop.it

IN THE EARLY HOURS of Monday, April 29 this year, Mark Stucky and Mike Alsbury successfully landed back at base after what must rank as one of the modern world’s shortest flights – all ten minutes of it.

 

So far, so mundane – until one discovers that their trip actually began 8.9 miles above the Mojave desert, piggybacking a carrier craft, peeling off to climb 1.6 miles at Mach 1.2 before making the 10.5-mile descent to the runway, landing without a hitch.

 

Stucky and Alsbury are no ordinary pilots, you see: they were flying Virgin Galactic’s Space Ship Two.

Air France to jump on low-cost carrier bandwagon? - Business Traveller | Erin's mental travel talk | Scoop.it

Air France is poised to convert subsidiary airline Transavia into a low-cost carrier, according to a report in La Tribune newspaper.

AF's plan would see it slim down its operations at Paris Orly in favour of handing over a number of routes to Transavia.

The move could reportedly happen as early as next year, although details of the routes in question are not yet available.
