LOS ANGELES - Air Lease Corporation has announced a long term lease agreement with Aeromexico for one additional new Boeing 787-9 aircraft with General Electric engines.

BERLIN - The German carrier airberlin has filed to begin insolvency proceedings under self-administration at a local district court in Berlin. The airline said that the move was made in order to continue with a restructuring process that was already underway.

The insolvency filing came following notification by Etihad Airways that the Persian Gulf carrier no longer intends to provide airberlin with financial support. Etihad is the largest shareowner in airberlin, owing 29 percent of the carrier.

The German government is supporting airberlin with a bridging loan that will enable the airline to maintain flight operations over the long term. Airberlin said that Lufthansa, with which it has codeshare agreements, is supporting it in its restructuring efforts, as are other of its partners.

Meanwhile, all flights operated by airberlin and its NIKI affiliate are to continue as planned. The carrier said that all bookings and flight schedules remain valid, and that tickets on all flights can still be booked.

According to airberlin, negotiations are ongoing with Lufthansa and other partners regarding the possible acquisition of airberlin business units, and that these negotiations may be finalized shortly.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Guests aboard curated journeys with TCS World Travel, the world leader in all-inclusive private jet expeditions for nearly 25 years, can now experience the fastest global, broadband, in-flight connectivity available following an agreement recently signed with Rockwell Collins.

TCS World Travel has installed Rockwell Collins’ CabinConnect wireless in-flight connectivity system on its custom-configured Boeing 757, operated by TAG Aviation. The fully operational system was launched on August 9, 2017 when 50 guests departed for a 23-day trip across Eurasia.

"Our brand is about redefining luxury travel by providing highly personalized, enriching experiences for our guests from the comfort and convenience of our private jets," said Shelley Cline, TCS World Travel president. "We chose Rockwell Collins for cabin connectivity because we needed a dependable solution that will keep our guests connected almost anywhere in the world."

Through the new service, TCS World Travel guests can use an aircraft-provided iPad or their own devices to check email or browse the internet in flight, as well as access news, sports and weather information with a reliable connection that is similar to the quality and speed they experience when on the ground. The TCS World Travel system includes Rockwell Collins’ Airshow Mobile for Browsers, a 2D moving map system that keeps pace with guests wherever they fly.

"Rockwell Collins was able to customize the system to interface with our onboard lecture system," continued Cline. "This allows our guests to receive a live presentation from a travel expert about an upcoming destination that is broadcast to interested guests via the provided onboard iPads."

"As a leading aircraft communications and service provider, we worked closely with TCS World Travel to understand their individual needs and requirements, and were able to outfit their aircraft with an operational system in just seven months," said Alexis Hickox, head of Business Development, Cabin Solutions for Rockwell Collins. "Bringing together our aviation expertise with our knowledge of the Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) network has enabled us to provide TCS World Travel with a service that is very much in line with their mission of creating unforgettable travel experiences for their guests."
