GoAir successfully tests TaxiBot – plans afoot to deploy them across major airports

India, 30 September 2019: GoAir, India’s fastest growing airline, has successfully tested TaxiBot - a semi-robotic pilot-operated tow vehicle - at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi. Thus GoAir has joined the global league of airlines that are planning to use TaxiBots to reduce fuel combustion as well as noise pollution. Rather than the conventional system where the GoAir pilot switches on the engine to take the plane from parking bay to the runway, in future, the pilots will use TaxiBots to transport GoAir aircraft to the runway without switching the engine on. Besides, TaxiBots will also ensure faster turnaround and result in better on-time-performance.
Mr. Jeh Wadia, Managing Director, GoAir, said: “GoAir has always been at the forefront of using technology for the benefit of passengers, environment and the airline’s business. In 2016, GoAir doubled its order for Airbus A320neo (new engine option) to 144 – these aircraft offer approximately 20% better fuel efficiency. Now, it is the time for TaxiBots – GoAir plans to deploy TaxiBots at all the major airports within the next few quarters.”
GoAir currently operates 325+ daily flights and carried around 13.91 lakh passengers in the month of August 2019. GoAir flies to 24 domestic destinations including Ahmedabad, Bagdogra, Bengaluru, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Jammu, Kochi, Kolkata, Kannur, Leh, Lucknow, Mumbai, Nagpur, Patna, Port Blair, Pune, Ranchi and Srinagar. GoAir flies to 7 international destinations, including Phuket, Male, Muscat, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bangkok and Kuwait, with Singapore to take-off soon.

Israel Tourism conducts a roadshow in Hyderabad

Israel Ministry of Tourism (IMOT) conducted a roadshow in Hyderabad on 26th September to enhance commercial ties with the Indian travel trade fraternity. In an effort to retain the growth momentum of Indian arrivals to Israel, the team interacted with over 50 key travel and tour operators, MICE providers and up-market leisure operators. The event commenced with a presentation leading to an interactive session with the IMOT team. The roadshow included interactive B2B sessions, education programmes and workshops to aid trade members in planning itineraries and responding to customer queries. The Israeli delegation was led by the newly appointed Director of Tourism for India & Philippines markets, Mr. Sammy Yahia along with Judah Samuel, Director – Marketing, Israel Ministry of Tourism, India and included representative partners from the tourism industry of Israel.
Sammy is responsible to lead the tourism board’s initiatives in India while overseeing the development of policies and strategies to strengthen Israel’s reputation as a world-class tourism and travel destination. He brings great expertise and know-how to the role with extensive and holistic experience in tourism marketing, strategic government relations and investment facilitation.
Commenting on the roadshow, Mr. Sammy Yahia, Director, Israel Ministry of Tourism – India & Philippines said, “The arrivals from India have exceeded expectations in the last few years and we have seen the same trend in 2019. India currently stands third in Asia among the top source markets for Israel. While keeping the current momentum going, the idea is to aggressively work towards increasing connectivity between India & Israel by introducing new airlines to service the route. I am delighted with this new position and foresee ample opportunities for us to push boundaries and reinvent the ever evolving and dynamic Indian traveller”.
Israel Ministry of Tourism participated in various trade fairs and exhibitions this year including APEX, MILT, EXITO and SATTE to showcase the dynamic offerings of the destination to the travel trade community thereby luring travellers to consider Israel for a leisure holiday. Alongside, Israel has also quickly become Middle-East’s newest business tourism destination, gaining popularity with the Indian corporate and MICE segment. MICE travel to the country is booming at a steady pace as a YPO delegation travelled in September this year while a 25-person delegation from Aries Agro Limited also visited Israel in September. A massive MICE movement was the CREDAI 19th NATCON 2019 hosted by CREDAI Telangana & CREDAI Andhra Pradesh in August that witnessed 850 attendees.
Over the years, Indian cuisine has also taken centre stage with many celebrity chefs and culinary experts visiting the country for menu engineering, special collaborations and food festivals. While Chefs like Sanjeev Kapoor, Thomas Zacharias, Manish Mehrotra and Rakhee Vaswani have travelled to Israel in the past, winner of Master Chef India, Chef Shipra Khanna visited the country for the Indian Culinary Festival at the Sheraton Tel Aviv in July this year. Hosted by the Embassy of India, Chef Khanna recreated flavours of India with the hotel’s Executive Chef for a special menu during the festival showcasing the best of India’s authentic dishes.
Israel offers a plethora of things to do and see to cater to the discerning traveller. From the historical city of Jerusalem to the beach city of Tel Aviv; from the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, to the marvellous underwater marine life of Red Sea in Eilat, Israel is truly a dynamic destination.

Secretary-Badminton, Bombay Gymkhana, Shyam Bhatia, Owner Alam Steel group and Founder, Cricket for Care, Aparna Popat, Former 9 Time National champion, Ms. Supriya Devgun, Founder & Managing Director, Badminton Gurukul with all the winners of Gautam Thakkar Sub Junior Badminton Championship. 
Mumbai: Top-seeded Aalisha Naik continued her dominating run and grabbed two titles after she defeated Kamya Ravi twice, first in the Girls under-15 and then under-17 category with a 21-15, 21-12 and 21-13, 21-7 scoreline respectively at the Gautam Thakkar Sub Junior Badminton Championship supported by Shyam Bhatia Cricket for Care foundation, promoted by Badminton Gurukul and hosted by Bombay Gymkhana here on Sunday.
Kamya who was also in line for a dual-title seemed quite comfortable in handling Aalisha's attack in the early stages of the game. Aalisha soon became aware of Kamyas weak areas and came back with a bang after the interval to score back to back points and race to a 21-15 win. Aalisha had the 2nd game in her control from the start and did not face any challenges on her way to a 21-12 win to take the U-15 title. With the Boys U-13 and U-15 ties getting over in straight games, both the players found themselves on the court sooner than they expected. Aalisha was at her absolute best with her top-class shots and shattered a tired Kamya making her run all around the court and secure a dominating 21-13, 21-7 victory to clinch the U-17 crown. Riya Vinherkar emerged as the Girls under-13 champion after she fought hard and outplayed Vedika Kulkarni  21-14, 21-17.
Meanwhile, in an uneventful Boys U-17 finals, Siddharth Bhuta thumped Malhar Joshi 21-6, 21-9 to take the trophy in a match that lasted less than 20 mins.  Later, Saransh Gajbhiye got the better off Harsh Sharma with 21-16, 21-16 victories to win the Boy's U-15 title.
