Indonesian Airlines were banned from EU airspace in 2007, with some allowed back later like Garuda. The ban on all of them was lifted only recently.

I honestly hope Malindo Air don't come. Rather wait for more quality operators to fly here.

On this note, no further news on any negotiations with any US airlines?

Adelaide Airport could host new flights if it impresses airline bosses at aviation forum next year

Jade Gailberger, federal political reporter, The Advertiser
September 17, 2018 8:01pm

SOUTH Australians could fly direct to the US and on new routes to Asia in a few years with the federal and state tourism ministers preparing to lobby international airline bosses who will descend on Adelaide next year.

The city will be the first in Australia to host the World Aviation Routes conference, attracting 3000 delegates from airlines, airports and tourism authorities to develop new flight routes and which will inject more than $20 million into the state’s economy.

SA Tourism and Trade Minister David Ridgway, pictured, will today attend the world’s largest aviation forum in Guangzhou, China, for an official handover before Adelaide hosts the event next September.

The Advertiser understands flights from Adelaide to the United States and additional routes to Asia are the main focus for Mr Ridgway and his federal counterpart Simon Birmingham – after Qantas expanded its European operations at Perth airport.

Mr Ridgway said he looked forward to discussing opportunities for new routes and showcasing why Adelaide was growing as a destination for international travellers.

“There have been good recent signs for SA with Malaysia Airlines, Cathay Pacific and China Southern all putting on additional Adelaide services and Singapore Airlines also upgrading its Adelaide aircraft to the next-generation Airbus, but we need to keep the momentum going,” Mr Ridgway said.

“More flights into Adelaide means more people dining in our local restaurants and more people staying in our hotels.”

Upgrades to Adelaide Airport will help the ministers’ bid, while airlines already established in Australia would face less red tape to expand their operations which could see new routes established in a couple of years.

Mr Birmingham said there was every reason to further expand international flights to Adelaide with additional naval shipbuilding investments and the state’s tourism potential.

“This is a unique opportunity for Australia and also South Australia to take centre stage and have the biggest players in world aviation in our own backyard,” Mr Birmingham said. “By hosting this conference, we’ll be front of mind when the biggest aviation companies have discussions about new air routes or expanding capacity on existing routes.

“While international aviation capacity to Australia now exceeds 25 million seats per year, further increasing this capacity will only strengthen and help sustain our tourism industry in the long run.”

In the year to June, Adelaide Airport set a new record of more than one million international passengers passing through its terminal.

The World Routes 2019 conference will be held from September 21-24 and will be hosted by the SA Tourism Commission, Adelaide Airport, Adelaide Convention Bureau and Tourism Australia.

Evening all,

To save questions for tomorrow...

Air New Zealand B777-300ER ZK-OKT is operating 'NZ191/192' tomorrow. What makes this interesting that the aircraft is in EVA Air colours. ANZ are leasing the aircraft to cover B787-9 engine issues. A very historic event for Adeladie, as it will be the 1st EVA Air painted aircraft and 1st NZ registered B777-300ER to visit Adelaide.

Hey Stefan, did I see a Air New Zealand B777 arrive in Adl last week?
Could've sworn I did.

BTW, thanks Stefan! love your updates.

We've been seeing a B777-200 regularly for a while now. It has substituted the B787-9 as explained by Stefan.

The EVA Air would be nice to see in photos. Now if they flew to Adelaide I'd hop on to Taipei...

Cheers

If Air Asia is coming, does it mean we'll get that plane?

The 165 room Atura Hotel at Adelaide Airport has opened its doors and we've taken a look inside!

The highly anticipated seven-storey building features urban, industrial and stylish design at its core with free-flowing communal spaces, offering business and leisure travellers the ultimate comfort and convenience.

Renowned architect and interior designer Nic Graham designed the lobby, restaurant Hangar Bar & Grill, the Meeting Point Cafe and all 165 guest rooms.

The large scale lobby features tall ceilings and large windows bringing the natural light in, communal tables, quiet zones and a pool table.

The hotel's interior looks great! But what's up with the blank concrete walls facing the western edge of the plaza? They look somewhat temporary - as though they might one day be opened to reveal more tenancies? I hope they get some artwork or vertical gardens in the interim.

From Australian Business Traveller:
Emirates flights: Adelaide-Dubai

Emirates' sole daily flight between Adelaide and Dubai (EK440/EK441) will drop from a Boeing 777-300ER to the Boeing 777-200LR from October 28 to November 30 2018, as well as February 1 to April 15 2019.

Emirates has yet to advise if this Boeing 777-200LR is one of the jets fitted with the refreshed 2-2-2 business class seats instead of the more common 2-3-2 configuration.

If so, that will be a win for business class passengers but not first class flyers, as the process of upgrading each Boeing 777-200LR sees the first class suites removed.
Cheers
