Weekly review #164 - 31st August

Weekly review

First up, it's good news as last week we saw the opening of Dublin Airports' long-awaited new North Runway. It opened on Wednesday 24th, and is the airport's third runway (28R/10L). The project was eagerly awaited, after the Dublin Airport Authority was granted planning permission for the site back in 2007. 

 

In more airport news for the UK, London Stansted has received planning permission from the Secretary of State for the development of an airport solar farm. The 14.3MW solar farm will be on land already owned by Stansted immediately to the east of the airport at High House Farm. The development is designed to meet the airport’s current and increasing electricity demands, including from the growing use of electric vehicles.

 

Next up, the State of Qatar and the Republic of Zambia signed an agreement in the field of open-air transport between the two countries. The agreement comes within the framework of linking Qatar with air services agreements, opening the way for the national carrier to expand its network to reach more global destinations.

 

Finally, OneSky has announced that Intermap and Lufthansa Systems have signed on to be members of the OneSky Future of Flight program. Intermap and Lufthansa will combine their powerful terrain data, including vegetation and buildings, with OneSky’s world-class airspace management system.
