This is one of the best airline marketing ideas I have seen of late... Winair, a commuter, regional, airline based at Princess Juliana airport in the island of Sint Maarten, in the Caribbean, has taken on the pizza delivery role as well. For just the regular delivery fare of $2.75, Winair can bring you a freshly baked pizza from Domino's branch at Princess Juliana airport. In fact, blogger Leslie Yip already showed how it is perfect...

I am quite sure that Princess Juliana airport, in the small bi-national island (French & Dutch Antillian) of Sint Maarten (Saint Martin in French) features prominently in the imagination of quite a few aviation enthusiasts...and possibly beyond the avgeek community as well, as the iconic image of Jumbo jets blasting the onlookers at Maho Beach, has been making the rounds on blogs and social media for already quite some time! No wonde...

Japanese airline ANA (All Nippon Airway) helps you visualize your Linkedin network as an airline route map. To do so it has put together a website that, once you have linked it to your Linkedin profile, it organizes a 3D map of your contacts and tells you which ones are reachable through an ANA route. This is possibly the best visualizations and analysis tools of Linkedin networks that I have seen so far (it actually requires the mo...

It looks like Russian low cost airline Pobeda will get its own music. The airline has signed an agreement with composer John Sokoloff to create the airline's song, that will be played on all flights as well as on call center communications. The music hall...Picture: Pobeda The composer. Picture: Pobeda While we wait to listen to the new piece, to be honest, I feel personally a bit ambivalent towards this type of corporate anthem...

While airports around the World are in fierce competition to secure their share of the growing air travel market, in some quarters they are already thinking one step ahead, looking into an era of private space travel, whose beginning we are just witnessing. Ellington airport, in Houston, Texas, is one such places. The facility, that currently operates private and government flights, has been approved by the FAA as a spaceport, the 10...

No doubt that aviation is ideal for all sort of creative compositions. Whether it is hyperlapsed Instagram posts or time-lapsed landing videos, flying makes for impressive visual material. This time is Japanese blogger darwinfish105 has brought us this amazing video that combines time-lapsed with other techniques to give us an unusual view of operations at Tokyo Haneda airport. Enjoy!

The current edition of MAKS has taken place in quite a different economic and political environment compared to that of 2013. While we await MC-21s first flight, hopefully by next MAKS, the Sukhoi Superjet continues to take the center stage when it comes to Russia's civilian aircraft industry. UAC's president, Yuri Slyusar, was at the show to chat with journalists and present the latest news about the Superjet programme.  Yuri Sl...

An aircraft whose fuselage operates as a giant flying electric battery? This is one of the "crazy" ideas being studied by NASA. Working under NASA's Convergent Aeronautics Solutions (CAS) project, several teams of scientists and engineers brainstorm and evaluate totally ground-breaking concepts in the field of aeronautics. Even if most of these ideas will be discarded, the point is they have the possibility of pursuing the most revo...

Plans to launch the replacement of the legendary Airbus Beluga, an aircraft I have a great liking for, are well underway... The new cargo aircraft, due to enter service in 2019, is going to be called Beluga XL and is going to be based on the Airbus A330 instead of the A300, as current Belugas are. And it is also going to be larger and capable to fly a 30% larger payload.  A welcome addition to Airbus fleet, as the current Beluga fle...

Here is an airline promotional website that really caught my eye. As it has been put together by Russian airline S7, the video is in Russian, which somehow might difficult its appreciation by the readership of this blog, nevertheless I decided I would share it, since I found it inspirational, creative and aesthetically awesome. The story starts with a number of children speaking about places that exist in their imagination, like lan...

Remarkable social media initiative by Turkish Airlines, that has just pioneered (as far as I am aware of!) the use of mobile live video app Periscope to broadcast an Istanbul to New York flight.  The broadcast, that was viewed, on aggregate, by an audience of tens of thousands started with the crew's preparation before the flight and then continued while on flight, taking advantage of in-flight wi-fi, and then followed the crew after...

The Airbus A380 has made a brief appearance on the latest FC Barcelona promotional video, with the Camp Nou, FC Barcelona's stadium, converted into an improvised airport runway. We have documented the relationship between FC Barcelona and its sponsor airlines, first Turkish Airlines, then and to this date, Qatar Airways. Given Qatar Airways has A380s in its fleet and it is also the Catalan football club main sponsor, why the video f...
