Red Wings to use three ex-Aeroflot Il-96s for Crimea flights

Red Wings to use three ex-Aeroflot Il-96s for Crimea flights | GBJ Aviation and Insurance News | Scoop.it
Red Wings (WZ, Moscow Vnukovo) is to expand its fleet with the arrival of three Il-96s formerly with Aeroflot (SU, Moscow Sheremetyevo). The Interfax newswire says the quadjets will be used to bolster both passenger and freight capacity on flights to Simferopol in Russian-occupied Crimea. Airlines that have served the controversial resort town have been subjected to hard-hitting European and US sponsored targeted sanctions, chief among them, Dobrolet (QD, Moscow Sheremetyevo).

Russia's Ministry of Industry and Trade intends to equip the carrier with 20 additional leased Russian-built jets, namely ten Tu-204SMs and ten SSJ 100-95s, and to establish Simferopol as a primary operational base paving the way for subsidized flights aimed at attracting greater numbers of Russian tourists.

Moscow will also recapitalize the carrier paving the way for government to take a controlling stake in the airline.

Future of air travel may consist of windowless airplanes

Future of air travel may consist of windowless airplanes | GBJ Aviation and Insurance News | Scoop.it
No matter how you put it, the window seat is always the best when travelling via "the highway in the sky." Watching the world pass below you from thousands of feet in the air is an incredibly enthralling experience and effectively takes your mind off that sad, stale bag of honey-roasted peanuts in your hand. Such is the case with Technicon Design's new private jet concept "Ixion." Described as a "windowless" jet, the design features a large, open-glass cabin to provide an immersive flying experience: "We quickly settled on the controversial yet interesting idea of removing the windows from the cabin and using existing or very near future technology to display the exterior environment to the inside surfaces of the cabin via external cameras. Removing the windows allows for weight reduction, simplifies construction and opens up an enormous spectrum of possibilities for interior design.
