LIAT’s new aircraft lands in Dominica

first_img Share LocalNews LIAT’s new aircraft lands in Dominica by: – June 26, 2013 Water salute. Photo compliments: Chemizt Online ServicesLIAT’s new aircraft, the ATR 72-600, has made its inaugural flight into Dominica. The flight landed in Dominica at 8:00 am on Wednesday, 26th June at the Melville Hall Airport.“Today is a historic day in LIAT’s operations with the inaugural flight of this new ATR 72-600 aircraft,” LIAT’s chairman, Jean Holder said at a welcome ceremony.Mr Holder noted that he is pleased that Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, though faced with criticism, invested in this vital airline. Dominica joined Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, St Vincent and the Grenadines as shareholders in the airline when it announced an $8 million investment. The airline recently announced that the French-manufactured ATR is being leased from the lessor GECAS (GE Capital Aviation Services) and “is the first of a total of eight ATRs -four 68-seat ATR 72-600 and four 48-seat ATR 42-600s- that will be introduced into LIAT’s fleet”.The introduction of these brand new ATR -600s in LIAT’s current fleet of 14 aircraft is a part of the airline’s restructuring plans aiming at fleet modernization and network improvements.“By progressively replacing its current fleet of former turboprop aircraft with the modern and fuel-efficient ATRs, the airline will significantly reduce operating and maintenance costs, gain further in profitability and offer more comfort to its passengers due to its enhanced seat design,” the airline said in a statement recently.At the moment, the Antigua-based carrier has a fleet of 18 Dash-8 aircraft, with 15 that have a seating capacity of 50 and three 37-seater planes.LIAT, which flies to 21 destinations in the Caribbean, has put a price tag of US$100 million on the re-fleeting exercise and said it is seeking to borrow between US$60 and US$70 million from the Barbados-based Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).“LIAT currently connects 21 destinations throughout the Caribbean with most routes under 100 Nm, like Grenada to Trinidad, or Dominica to Antigua. The 68-seat ATR 72-600s are perfectly adapted to many of our existing and potential routes,” the airline’s chief executive officer, Ian Brunton said recently.“By renewing our fleet our customers will enjoy more efficiency and better travel experience. The ATR 72-600 perfectly fits with our requirements in terms of low operating costs, most updated technologies and optimal comfort,” he added.[nggallery id=317]: Photographs compliments: Chemizt Online Services Dominica Vibes News Tweet Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring!

Plasma Donations Sought From Recovered COVID-19 Patients

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As patients recover from COVID-19, the Blood Bank of Alaska is encouraging them to consider donating their plasma, which has antibodies that can help treat patients infected with the same disease. In addition to providing medical documentation showing that they have fully recovered from COVID-19, prospective convalescent plasma donors must meet all screening and eligibility requirements for regular blood donation. Prospective donors may contact the Blood Bank of Alaska at (907) 222-5630 for questions regarding eligibility. This request comes from a nationwide effort from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to offer an additional form of treatment for critically ill patients of COVID-19. While clinical trials are currently being performed for widespread use of this treatment, the FDA has authorized patients with, or at risk of, severe or life-threatening COVID-19 disease to receive this treatment through an expanded access program. Donors must be fully recovered and provide valid documentation of their recovery.center_img Dr. Todd Ellerin, Director of Infectious Diseases at South Shore Hospital in Massachusetts: “The goal is that those antibodies will then attack the proteins, these spike proteins in the virus, and prevent the virus from entering the cell. This is to buy time until we get the vaccine.”last_img read more

Grey Facemasks For Everyone*

Where cases are usually stock white, black, or grey/silver. Very few, if any, teams in leagues that mandate cages bother colour coordinating them with their uniforms. So why not football?

Heck, I even loved the colored shoes. Here’s the current NFL teams that I’d let pass on gray: Dallas, Oakland. It’s an eyesore seeing gray stick out like on the 49ers. Where else is gray? Don’t give me the “classic “ argument unless you’d give it a pass to wear a brown, leather helmet. Sorry, really hate gray masks. Looks bad on a team like the cards, but even worse when a team regresses back to gray like the colts.
