Over two decades ago, in a most unjust and technically unsound and illegal decision, @AAI_Official expanded @mlrairport . We warned of disastrous consequences. None listened. All the way to @DGCAIndia , Karnataka High Court and also Supreme Court. /1
This is what happened:

Despite this disaster, the #airport has turned into a major international hub. And thanks to @narendramodi, it has been gifted to @gautam_adani 's Adani Group. /2
Like several other #ports, airports and public #infrastructure have been.

The lack of #transparency of such transfers notwithstanding, it is now immensely disturbing that Gautam Adani gets to decide and impose #UDF. /3

Thnx 4opp 2talk abt current #Airport #Airline #Travel chaos; not just UK prob; it extends across #Europe

Many reasons & blame abound but the return to normality was always going 2B problematic.

#Brexit transferred 261/2004 Rights; @CAA_UK should enforce!

Key Q: @GOVUK claim they'd warned #TravelIndustry, concerned that they: "Seriously oversold flights & holidays relative to their capacity".

@grantshapps publish meetings, minutes & warnings; let's see the detail!......

....It is this use of language, by all parties, that's designed to present their position that creates confusion in #Consumer understanding and indeed their expectations

It's all very good having high expectations, but...

This 12(!) car #train arrived at #budapestnyugati from #záhony at the #Ukrainian #border this afternoon, it was a special train for the #Ukrainianrefugees fleeing the #WARINUKRAINE

And I have to say that I am positively surprised by how much help is happening in Eastern Europe!
And to put it in context, the "normal" train back to Zahony had 5 cars...
This is at the #keleti station in Budapest, normally this hall is completely empty, now it full with stands and people who #HelpUkrainianRefugees

A dual departure by @VirginAtlantic & @British_Airways from the westerly runways at @HeathrowAirport this morning to mark the opening of the #USA to double vaccinated travellers. But why did one #aircraft go North (the long way) and the other go West? Thread… #Airport #WePilots
The simple answer is, that if both take off at the same time and go west towards @JFKairport, they will eventually get in each other’s way. So the aircraft (@VirginAtlantic) on 27L continued straight ahead on a CPT departure & the (@British_Airways) turned north on an UMLAT.
This also allows the #aircraft to both climb to the optimum cruising level and cross the #Atlantic Ocean almost side-by-side. The more northerly track will obviously add more miles and therefore time to the journey. Whilst it was never a race, the more direct routing always wins.

A thread on #ISKP:
Following takeover of Kabul City by the #Taliban in mid-August, with exception of two attacks against Kabul International #Airport (a deadly suicide attack near the airport gate& a failed rocket attack), the #ISKP activities in #Afghanistan came down to zero...
While #ISKP was sometime topping or used to be on 2nd or 3rd position either after Iraq, Africa or Syria on the attacks& casualties' list in the infographic of Islamic State's Al-Naba weeklies in the previous months; in the recent weeks, it is either at the bottom or disappeared.
There were two propaganda narratives about ISKP activities:
1. Taliban used to call the ISKP a terror wing of the NDS (intelligence), accusing government of supporting the group.
2. The government was saying that the ISKP is a just a new label over the hardliner Taliban or HQN.

Pakistan has issued visas to all members of the Afghanistan cricket team, which is most likely to be a long route to Sri Lanka for their pre-scheduled three ODI series against Pakistan, due to commence from September3. #dailyscooptv #Aghanistan #kabul #airport #SriLanka #pakistan
There are currently no commercial flights flying out of Kabul International Airport, therefore the Afghanistan team cannot depart directly to Sri Lanka due to the recent takeover of Taliban on the country.
Hence, Pakistan had issued visas for all the players of the Afghanistan team along with the staff members to first travel to Pakistan and then fly to Colombo via Dubai.

Public service announcement. Having just travelled to Portugal & returned, here is my travel advice which is clearer than the Govt. 1. Get a PCR test with certificate in order to board in UK. Must be on Govt approved list. (Range seems to be £80-150).
Print this off onto paper for check-in. Handing over phones is a faff. 2. Fill in a passenger locator form to go (noone told me this but can be done on the plane). 3. To return you only need an antigen test. €35+. 48 hours before. I got results within two hours. Print this too.
4. Book a two day test online from the govt list £40+. NB risk- A friend did this and it still wasn't allowed at check-in so was told to rebook. I used Expert. Make sure you fill in a return passenger locator form using the booking reference for the test before going to airport.

Generally speaking #infrastructure is defined as the basic #physical systems of any #business, #region, or that of any #nation... including #transportation systems, #communication #networks, #sewage, #water supply & #electrical #grid systems. #BuildBackBetter #logistics #stimulus
Various types of #infrastructure #construction based projects typically drive the bulk of conversations amongst those of us vested in the arduous process of "progress" moving forward.
#Highway improvement, #street & #road maintenance & #bridge building commonly take center stage.

NITI Aayog Islands Development Project: Megathread
The project involves:
- Redevelopment and Industrialisation of #GreatNicobar
- Redevelopment into a Model City of other islands, starting with #LittleAndaman Island… [1/16]
- The project involves construction of an #airport, #port, & a transportation system
- #Galathea WLS was denotified for the project
- The WLS is known for being the nesting site of the #LeatherbackTurtle. [2/16]
The denotification of the WLS in January contradicted the National Marine #Turtle Action Plan (released Feb 2021) which declared the Galathea WLS as one of India’s few ‘Important #Coastal and #Marine #Biodiversity Areas’ and ‘Important Marine Turtle #Habitats’. [3/16]

Many have asked about what effects a potential #eruption in the #Reykjanes peninsula on @kefairport & #ReykjavikAirport. Based on standard procedure all airports in 120km radius from a #volcano get closed immediately and then reopened when @Vedurstofan issues ash advisory Image
The @kefairport location is optimal, even though it may be close to the potential eruption site since it is located on higher ground, greatly reducing the threat from lava flows. Depending on the magnitude of the eruption planes might have to change flight paths on arrival. Image
Given how few flights there are daily to/from #Iceland this is not expected to cause major issues. The Civil Aviation Authority @isavia is going through its response plans and preparing for the potential effects of an eruption. Image

Anti-airport activist killed. RIP Antonio.

The indigenous Rarámuri community of Bosques de San Elías Repechique in 🇲🇽 is demanding justice after the murder of leader and activist Antonio Montes Enríquez, whose death has been called a “crime of the state”.…
The activist had been planning a protest at the site of the Barrancas del Cobre #airport in the town of Creel to denounce the misuse of a trust created in 2016 to compensate residents for the airport’s construction on land belonging to the Rarámuri.

A thread to cover some of the major - and I mean seriously, shockingly major - gaps, mistakes and problems with the #environmental impact assessment for Montijo airport in #Portugal.

First up: no #fieldwork. AT ALL. 1/
That's right – the EIA of a major international #airport proposed for the country’s most important #wetland site for #bird #conservation didn’t bother to actually count any #birds.

Instead, they depended on studies already published for other reasons.

How did that work out? 2/
Well, the data on birds feeding in the #intertidal- the largest and most important #habitat in the #SPA- was collected in 2002-3.

In the 17 years since, the #Tagus has changed a lot for birds. Improved #water treatment but drastic increase in #shellfish harvesting. 3/
