Reports that the laptop ban on select flights to the US may soon be extended has raised further concerns in the aviation industry. But Joe Leader, CEO of the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX), has proposed an alternative: green lighting passengers to travel with their electronics in the cabin. Leader proposed this solution to the existing ban and to a potentially extended ban while speaking at the Aviation Festival Americas, alongside major airlines, the US Department of Homeland Security (US DHS) and US Customs and Boarder Protection (CBP). The “green listing” proposal would mean passengers can be pre-approved to carry electronics in the cabin on restricted routes, with their identities confirmed using biometric facial recognition. Leader also called for a hold on any expansion of the electronics ban to flights originating in Europe. “Having the electronics ban spread to the European Union for flights to the United States would damage the personal freedoms integral to international air travel. We must stand together with government solutions for personal electronics that enable both security and accessibility for our airline passengers worldwide. “Biometric identification of passengers that are pre-cleared to travel with electronics would enable a viable potential solution with the U.S. DHS CBP ready to provide immediate technological facilitation.” The repercussions of the existing ban have already been felt. Carriers whose US bound flights are restricted for carriage of electronics equipment in the cabin have removed more than one million annual passenger long-haul seats from US destination airports over the last 30 days alone, the association states. This does not include any potential lost passengers on flights to the UK which has also joined the US in the electronics ban, albeit with varying parameters. Leader says governments should approve “solutions for electronics rather than the existing airline electronics ban”. Results from APEX’s Global Passenger Survey released last year, show airline passengers frequently bring their personal electronics devices on-board aircraft: One of the criticism of the original electronics ban imposed on flights to the US was that its method of deployment was poorly coordinated, leaving airlines little time to plan how they might help passengers deal with these sudden limitations on their on-board activities, as well as the implication to business travel policies for many. International Air Transport Association (IATA) director general and CEO, Alexandre de Juniac, has addressed this point directly in recent speaches, including at a recent meeting in Seoul where he called for increased dialogue between regulators and industry, in the drafting of new regulations, policies and standards. “We have a common interest in safe and secure flights. Yet last month the US and the UK announced that large electronic devices would be banned from passenger cabins on some flights from the Middle East and North Africa. “There was no consultation with airlines and the measure challenged public confidence with inconsistencies, while the safety concerns over concentrations of lithium batteries in the aircraft hold have not been adequately considered or addressed. “The learnings from this are many—governments need to share information, they need to consult with industry, and they need to support the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as it develops a global aviation security plan.” Should any extension take place it would find the airline industry ill-prepared to address the needs of numerous passengers once again, creating disruptions for airlines and airports in their screening and boarding processes. An extension of the ban to routes from Europe to the US would also threaten the stability of the transatlantic premium market, one of the most important routes for airlines in terms of profitability and competitiveness. In a highly contended market, with heavy competition accross the pond from Gulf carriers and Low-Cost carriers alike, it is difficult to imagine how airlines might cope with a loss of seats far greater than what APEX cites for the past 30 days. What can not be understated in this electronics ban discussion is the threat to flight safety of collecting numerous electronic devices, in various states of repair or disrepair, within the hold of the aircraft. Regardless what precautions airlines will take to reduce the safety risks from such procedures imposed on them by this policy, Lithium battery fires have already proven deadly. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has expressed concern over the flight safety risks of the electronics ban. An investigation into the loss of EgyptAir 804, previously attributed to suspected terrorist activities, has suggested that it may have been caused by the runaway lithium battery fire of a single tablet device in the cockpit. If a single device, within reach of being extinguished, could cause an aircraft to explode, it’s easy to understand why the airline industry is concerned over the greater risks of battery fires which cannot be detected until it is too late.

GIBRALTAR--(Marketwired - May 09, 2017) - WheelTug plc is pleased to see the impressive analysis published by AirInsight.com. The article draws a clear link between ground time and the bottom line. The faster an airline can turn around its aircraft, the more profitable it typically is when compared to other carriers serving the same region. We see very similar patterns across the world's three largest and most competitive markets: Our innovative WheelTug™ system is well situated to take advantage of this finding. WheelTug allows aircraft to operate in ramp areas without tow tugs or jet engines, thereby greatly streamlining ground operations (below). The system will enable pushback in a single minute and save at least 7 minutes every flight. WheelTug will be presenting these and other benefits to industry experts at the IATA E-Taxi Conference held in Singapore on 23-24 May. Reducing jet blast while providing excellent maneuverability, WheelTug will also enable airplanes to park parallel to terminal gates in the future, using two doors to expedite narrowbody boarding and deplaning. Depending on an airline's fleet composition, route structure, and market position, time savings may reach as much as 20 minutes. By cutting both total ground time and schedule padding, WheelTug will permit airlines to improve both schedule reliability and fleet utilization. Videos of WheelTug tests can be found at http://media.wheeltug.com/ The WheelTug system represents the most significant improvement in aircraft ground handling in decades. In addition to the above-mentioned time savings, WheelTug will cut airline expenditures on fuel, maintenance, and pushback fees. As WheelTug will also reduce carbon emissions, ramp area injuries, and ground noise, the benefits are comprehensive. In order to further improve the safety of ramp operations, WheelTug will also offer airlines an on-board camera system. The optional TaxiCam system will improve the pilot's situational awareness, especially when reversing. WheelTug will showcase its TaxiCam simulator for the first time later this month at the IATA E-Taxi Conference. WheelTug will first be available for the Boeing 737NG family of aircraft; entry into service is expected in early 2019. Versions for other aircraft types are also planned. WheelTug's order book already totals almost 1,000 systems for aircraft from 22 airlines worldwide. To learn more about how WheelTug works and how it will benefit flyers, airlines, airports, and the environment, see http://www.wheeltug.com. And please visit us this month at the Dublin Aviation Summit (16-17 May) or IATA E-Taxi Conference (Singapore, 23-24 May), and next month at the Paris Air Show (19-22 June - Hall 5, E250).
