Air India plane bound for US makes emergency landing in Russia
Quick Glance: Air India Emergency Landing in Russia
  • An Air India passenger plane flying from New Delhi to San Francisco made an emergency landing in Russia after the crew detected a potential issue in the cargo hold area.

  • Air India uses a route over Russia that many airlines avoid due to the war in Ukraine, giving the company a time and cost advantage.

  • The emergency landing in Russia puts a spotlight on aircraft manufacturer Boeing, whose plane was involved in the incident, despite several Boeing planes being part of recent air incidents.

  • Regulatory clearances have been obtained for a relief flight from Mumbai on Friday, the Indian airline said.

Quick Glance: Dow reaches new high with over 700 points increase
  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at a record high Tuesday and saw an increase of 743 points, marking its largest one-day gain in over a year.

  • These positive developments occurred amidst a broader rally driven by stronger-than-expected June retail sales data, robust earnings reports, and the anticipation of a benchmark interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve in September.

  • One standout performer was UnitedHealth, whose stock surged 6.5 percent after reporting better-than-expected results for the second quarter, contributing to the Dow's upward movement.

  • Following last week's less-than-expected inflation report, the market has bounced back. The Dow hit its previous record on Monday after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome H. Powell expressed confidence that recent data indicates inflation is heading towards the central bank's 2 percent target.

  • The Avro Arrow program was intended to make Canada a leader in military aviation but was canceled less than a year after its first flight.

  • Developed as a response to the Soviet threat, the Avro Arrow aimed to intercept bombers with nuclear payloads flying over the Arctic to reach North America.

  • Despite its initial success, the Avro Arrow program was terminated due to political and financial reasons, leading to job losses and the collapse of Avro Canada.

  • Decades later, revelations from archival documents shed light on the role of intelligence in the decision to cancel the program, highlighting the enduring impact of the Avro Arrow on Canadian aviation history.

Quick Glance: Dubai Entrepreneurs Launch Low-Cost Airline Air Kerala, Plan to Cut Prices for Expats
  • A low-cost airline named Air Kerala, operated by two Dubai-based businessmen, received the initial No-Objection Certificate (NOC) from India's civil aviation ministry. The company, registered under the name Zettfly Aviation, has permission to operate scheduled commuter flights for three years.

  • Founders Afi Ahmed and Ayub Kallada lead Air Kerala, the first regional airline of India's southern state of Kerala. Following the receipt of the NOC, the airline must now spend months doing the necessary groundwork before it can launch its flights.

  • The airline plans to initially operate with three ATR 72-600 aircraft and will focus on regional connectivity before expanding into the international market. The project requires an initial investment of approximately Dh1.1 billion and is expected to promote tourism and trade in Kerala, as well as create at least 350 jobs in the city.

  • Air Kerala's long-term vision includes international flights, with Dubai mentioned as one of the first international destinations. The airline aims to make travel affordable for all expats and create job opportunities in the UAE once international operations commence.
