Late night operations by some aircraft will be banned at Helsinki Vantaa International Airport from Apr-2013, under the airport’s new environmental permit.

Tiny Switzerland has another airline, this one based in Bern, the nation’s capital and fourth largest city. Given that both Zurich and Geneva, the most populous, are small by global standards, basing an airline in a metro area with only 350,000 inhabitants may be a risky, and previously unsuccessful, endeavour. However, that history has not prevented yet another attempt named SkyWork.

The initial focus was obviously on providing connectivity between key European hubs and the capital city of Beijing, with services to Shanghai also quite extensive, although a number of carriers are adding service to secondary, albeit still large destinations in China, such as Chengdu, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Chongqin, Urumqi, Sancha, Dalian and Harbin.
German air navigation service provider DFS has successfully sought a court order to block a strike proposed by Gewerkschaft der Flugsicherung (GdF), the Germany air traffic control union.

The State of Hesse employment court agreed and blocked the action.
Europe’s major airlines have made a good start to the northern summer, with strong gains in load factors across the board and almost all carriers reporting year-on-year increases in passenger numbers.

As Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos stated last month upon the opening of a base in Helsinki, “the boom of low-cost flights is especially apparent in central Europe and in several Nordic countries. The structural changes to air traffic in Finland are only just beginning”.
