SWITZERLAND: Regional operator BLS has accepted the Federal Office for Transport’s June 12 ruling that it will be granted only two Interregio routes under the long-distance operating concession due to commence in December 2019. It expects to place orders in the next few weeks for eight MUTZ double-deck EMUs to operate the Bern – Biel and Bern – Burgdorf – Olten services. These will be acquired from Stadler under an option in a 2012 contract for S-Bahn stock.On June 21, BLS confirmed that it would not mount a challenge against BAV’s ruling, as this could lead to an uncertain legal situation that could delay the start of operations on its two routes. However, the operator emphasised that it would not be able to implement its plans for improved services that included on-board ticket sales, as operating two rather than five routes would not generate enough revenue. BLS had originally applied to run services from Basel to Brig and Interlaken Ost, as well as Bern to Neuchâtel and La Chaux-de-Fonds.BLS nevertheless welcomed the government’s initiative to open up the market for the long-distance passenger business and noted that the model can be developed further. It committed to submit bids to run additional routes when the concession next came up for renewal.Supporting BAV’s intention to review the tendering process, BLS called for a notice period of at least five years ahead of the next concession award to allow time to acquire rolling stock. It also demanded equal treatment in the financing of new trains; at the moment non-federal railways incur higher financing costs than national operator SBB which can avail itself of federal loans. The basis of the tendering process should also be better specified, with clear quality criteria set for individual routes. In addition, the bid evaluation criteria should be made available at an early stage in the tendering process.

Inmarsat has completed the successful launch of its S-band satellite (Inmarsat S EAN) for the European Aviation Network (EAN). The launch is a key milestone for Inmarsat’s unique EAN service, which is on course to commence commercial service in the second half of 2017.The Inmarsat S-band satellite, built by France’s Thales Alenia Space, was launched on an Ariane 5 rocket by Arianespace from Kourou in French Guiana. Following satellite separation, telemetry from the satellite was acquired by the Mingenew Ground Station in Western Australia. The launch team from Inmarsat and Thales Alenia Space will now raise the satellite into its geostationary orbit over Europe and the Middle East, at which point the spacecraft will deploy its solar arrays and reflectors, and undergo rigorous payload testing.Inmarsat’s EAN is the world’s first dedicated aviation connectivity solution to integrate space-based and ground-based networks to deliver a seamless WiFi experience for airline passengers throughout Europe. Inmarsat’s strategic partner, Deutsche Telekom, is well advanced in the construction of the complementary ground network, which will be fully integrated with the S-band satellite to deliver a truly seamless service for Europe’s airlines and their passengers.International Airlines Group (IAG), which includes world renowned airline brands such as British Airways, Iberia, Aer Lingus and Vueling, has been confirmed as the launch customer for the new service. It has begun equipping its aircraft and aims to have 90% of its short haul fleet complete by early 2019.The successful launch of the S-band satellite underlines the momentum that Inmarsat is building in the high-speed broadband inflight connectivity (IFC) market, which it entered in October 2016 with the commercial introduction of GX Aviation, a worldwide service powered by its Ka-band, Global Xpress (Ka) satellite constellation. It now has over 1,200 aircraft installations expected under signed contracts for its IFC services. Mandates have been won from leading airlines worldwide including Avianca, Qatar Airways, Deutsche Lufthansa Group, International Airlines Group, Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines and Norwegian Air Shuttle.Inmarsat first announced the plans for EAN in 2014, seeking to take advantage of a visionary and unique commercial and technological opportunity created by the European Commission’s DG CONNECT (Directorate General) and subsequently supported by Member State Telecoms Regulators. It is a testament to the continued support of European Institutions and national regulatory authorities, the hard work of multiple teams across Inmarsat and the commitment of their vital strategic partners, including Deutsche Telekom, Thales Alenia Space, Thales Aviation, Cobham and Arianespace, that it now stands on the threshold of a new aviation WiFi service that will transform the experience of passengers flying throughout Europe.Although the company is a relatively new entrant into the high-speed aviation passenger broadband market, it has secured commitments for the IFC services from major airlines in Europe and across the world. Their confidence underlines the strength of Inmarsat’s IFC strategy and the long-term, scalable capabilities of its two core IFC networks – GX Aviation and EAN.

Share Argonaut Athletic Club – Endowments Argonaut Athletic Club EndowmentsEndowments are crucial to a university’s continued success because of their longevity. The greatness of a regional comprehensive university lies not only in the quality of the education it provides, but in its responsiveness to the region it services. This cannot be achieved alone, but instead relies on shared dreams. We ask you to share in this dream by providing a gift of support that will help our student-athletes well into the future.What is an Endowment39Endowed funds differ from others in that they are the gift that keeps giving. Instead of the entire amount of the gift being spent outright, the gift is invested. Each year, a portion of the income earned is spent while the remainder is reinvested. An endowment is a perpetual gift because only the spendable income is used immediately to support the university, while the principal grows continuously. Why make an endowed gift39Considered one of the sources of funding with the most impact, endowments enable the university to support our students and programs by providing a steady and permanent source of income. This steady stream of funding provides the assurance the university needs to recruit and retain the best and brightest students and provide access to the most advanced education possible. Benefits to University of West FloridaEndowment dollars enable us to sustain growth and increase our reputation for quality, as well as successfully compete in the higher education marketplace to attract and retain a talented and diverse student body. These scholarships are critical to UWF’s future and can truly change the lives of our student-athletes and, in return, our community.Endowment ProcessIt is easy to establish an endowment at the University of West Florida. Our development professionals will guide you through this process. Endowed funds may be created with a minimum gift of $25,000 payable over five years, or through a future gift (a bequest) from your estate. We will work with you to establish guidelines for your endowment to assure that your wishes serving the needs of the university are met. These guidelines can be personalized to recognize the unique interests and intent of each gift as well as create the opportunity to name the endowment after you, in honor of your family, or in memory of someone special.For more information on endowments at the University of West Florida, contact Brett Berg at (850) 474-2019 or visit the UWF endowment website.

“Sub Inspector P K Mourya kala itu tengah bertugas memantau layar skrining X-Ray. Ia mengaku melihat sebuah benda yang menyerupai seekor ular di dalam tas seorang penumpang Air India flight 419 tujuan Abu Dhabi,” ujar salah satu pejabat CISF.“Petugas kepolisian Hidersh Kumar langung memeriksa isi tas tersebut setelah Mourya meminta ijin terlebih dahulu kepada si empunya tas untuk melakukan penggeledahan. Hidersh lalu menemukan seekor bayi ular yang diidentifikasi berjenis Indian Krait, salah satu ular paling berbisa di India,” tandasnya.Berdasarkan undang-undang penerbangan yang berlaku, lanjut pejabat CISF, reptil dan hewan margasatwa dilarang masuk ke dalam kabin atau bahkan kargo sekalipun. “Walaupun masih bayi, namun ular tersebut tetap saja berbisa, dan itu sangat berbahaya di dalam dunia penerbangan sipil,” imbuh pejabat tersebut.Alhasil, penumpang yang seharusnya mengudara pada pukul 16.55 waktu setempat ini terpaksa membatalkan rencananya dan harus berurusan dengan pihak yang berwajib. “Penumpang ini berasal dari Kattakalam di Palakkad of Kerala,”Baca Juga: Parah!
