Following the resolution of the Government of Israel (the “GOI”), dated July 24, 2011, the GOI is promoting, through the Company, the construction of an International Airport supplementary to Ben Gurion Airport (the “Airport”). The Airport will be constructed and operated by the private sector in a PPP Project scheme (Public Private Partnership) and will serve as civil and military Airport. According to the resolution of the National Council for Planning and Construction, dated December 5, 2017, two national outline plans are promoted: 15/d in Ramat David, and 15/C in Nevatim.

Conference will be held on March 6, 2019 at 9:00-16:00 at the Carlton Tel Aviv Hotel, Eliezer Perry Street 10, Tel Aviv. It is clarified that participation in the Conference is neither an obligation nor a pre-condition for the submission of a bid in the Tender. 

México: El Aeropuerto de Santa Lucía podría estar listo en 2 años y medio

La Cámara Nacional de Aerotransportes (Canaero) sí ve viable que la actual administración pueda entregar las obras del Aeropuerto de Santa Lucía en dos años y medio como se ha propuesto, aseguró Alejandro Alonso, presidente de la Cámara Nacional de Aerotransportes (Canaero).

El directivo puso como ejemplo el Aeropuerto de Toluca, que se tuvo en un menor tiempo respecto de lo planteado para Santa Lucía. “Toluca estuvo listo en su momento en menos tiempo que eso, aunque ese aeropuerto ya tenía una terminal de aviación general”.

Explicó que como parte de su agenda de trabajo al frente de la Canaero, se analizará con las autoridades cómo se realizará la migración de las aerolíneas hacia Santa Lucía.

Cabe señalar que la Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes ha notificado que este año iniciarán los trabajos del desarrollo del Aeropuerto de Santa Lucía, y se trabaja en los estudios que permitan la operación simultanea entre ese aeropuerto, el de la Ciudad de México y el de Toluca.

Carlos Morán, subsecretario de Transportes, adelantó que el 11 de febrero se le presentará al presidente López Obrador el avance del proyecto del Aeropuerto de Santa Lucía. “En los espacios aéreos se está trabajando en ver cuáles son las mejores opciones de rutas de aproximación para los tres aeropuertos”.

East Timor: Government to approve agreement to develop airport

Three members of East Timor’s government were on Wednesday mandated by cabinet to negotiate a cooperation agreement with the United States aimed at rehabilitating the airport of Baucau, the country’s second biggest city

The government said in a statement that the issue was debated at a meeting today of the government which approved a project by the minister of defence, Filomeno da Paixão de Jesus, regarding the start of the negotiations with the U.S to develop the airport, 127 km from east of Dili.

The project will extend the runway to make it considerably longer than that of the airport of Dili and it is one of the airports with the most potential due to its location, the government explained in the statement.

The negotiation process will be led by ministers of defence, foreign affairs and cooperation, transport and communication and public works.

The announcement comes shortly after the Japanese government announced it would support works to improve the International Airport Nicolau Lobato in Dili with $44 million.

Council told of proposed state study to create second Seattle airport by 2040

The Burien City Council has unanimously passed a resolution endorsing a Washington State Senate bill that would seek a location and get a second Seattle-area airport built in the next 20 years.
The Council, in study session, also unanimously approved a new version of the Burien Airport Committee in the study session Monday (Jan. 28), and also approved a second resolution to study noise pollution created by the airport.
Airport impacts
The newly reconstituted committee, continuing on from the previous one, is to “discuss both the positive and the negative impacts” of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Burien, and has been closely followed for its potential leadership by adjacent cities, especially SeaTac, Des Moines and Normandy Park.
The committee is chartered to consider and “discuss land use issues related to the airport, including impacts on Burien, including airport support areas such as airplane mechanical work and passenger handling, and to “discuss agreements between the City of Burien and the Port of Seattle” related to the airport including interlocal agreements.
The Burien committee also will “consider and discuss its impacts on the residents” including traffic, surface water management, parking, and the payment of impact fees.

A second resolution includes language that will ask the Port of Seattle to stop continuing to “build-out or launch of additional infrastructure at the Airport“ until studies are “completed, true impacts are assessed, and aviation capacity needs are fully documented.”
In short, stop expansion until the impacts are fully known and start considering a second major airport site in Western Washington because of widespread public belief the airport has grown as much as the area can handle. Wilson also told the Council there should be “full transparency.”

New airport by 2040?
Wilson said the city, in a request written by the city airport committee, is asking the Port of Seattle to give it a report on proposed actions on airport expansion no later than six months from when the Council approves the resolution.
The Council resolution asks the Legislature and Port of Seattle “to provide updates on progress potential new (airport} sites” at the end of the 2019 session of the Legislature.
Councilmember Nancy Tosta, the chairman of the city’s airport committee, said state Senator Karen Keiser, D-33, has introduced legislation in the current session of the Washington Legislature (SB 5370) “to form a commission” to look for a location for a second airport.
Under the legislation’s “pretty ambitious schedule” what would require the commission to come up with six viable sites by next January, and by September 2020 have “two top priority sites, a preferred location by Jan. 1, 2021, and a project time line to build a new airport by 2040.
