– United Flight 1516 bound for Houston, Texas, from Liberia, Costa Rica has made an emergency landing because of engine problems (via Aviation Inspector)

“One of my plane’s engines overheated over the ocean. We about crashed in an emergency landing before the pilot quickly pulled up. So scary,” Jody Genessy, one of the passengers onboard, tweeted after landing safely.

flyDubai is adding more (seasonal) routes to Central Asia and Europe – that’s a great move as competition is almost non-existent for these routes to the Gulf

Dubai-based low-cost carrier (LCC) flydubai said it will launch new seasonal flights from Dubai to Batumi (Georgia), Qabala (Azerbaijan) and Tivat (Montenegro). The new services will operate from June to September 2017, expanding its network to 93 destinations in 44 countries.
