Police in Scandinavian countries have said that they have increased the number of police patrols at airports. Denmark, Sweden and Finland have all increased security at their air hubs and Norway has temporarily allowed its police officers to carry weapons.
Bloomberg has made a deal with Delta Air Lines to create three half-hour programs that will be added to the carrier’s in-flight entertainment offerings. Bloomberg already creates special daily business programs for United, British Airways, American Airlines and Air Canada.
Southwest Airlines is getting fliers involved in its effort to be approved for flights to Cuba. The airline has sent a petition with 25,000 signatures to the U.S. DOT in support of its bid to fly from three U.S. cities to Cuba.
United Airlines is consolidating its operations at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. Despite dropping flights from the Ohio hub, the carrier has just renewed its lease for certain gates. The new agreement substantially reduces the number of gates that United will use at the airport, but it does guarantee that they will still be a presence at the airport for some time to come.
