Jetstar invests in tech to beat the Sunshine Coast weather
Jetstar NewsSUNSHINE COAST, Thursday 12th December 2013: Jetstar today became the first airline to operate a flight to the Sunshine Coast using the airport’s new Smart Tracking technology.

Smart Tracking, or Required Navigation Performance (RNP), guides aircraft along precise flight paths using flight management systems and satellites.

Unlike conventional satellite navigation systems, RNP keeps aircraft within a tight block of pre-determined airspace allowing pilots to track around ground-based obstacles when visibility is poor or the weather is unfavourable.

Jetstar Chief Pilot Mark Rindfleish said inclement weather around the Sunshine Coast Airport traditionally caused up to 15 flights per year to divert to Brisbane.

“With the introduction of RNP in the Sunshine Coast, local weather will no longer have the impact on Jetstar flights it once did,” Captain Rindfleish said.

“This is great news because we know improved reliability is important to our customers.
“We welcome this move by the Sunshine Coast Airport to join the ranks of major Australian airports in adopting the latest technology.”

The introduction of the RNP system in the Sunshine Coast is also set to help Jetstar reduce fuel consumption.

“RNP flights fly along a more direct flight path, helping to reduce the distance travelled and, in turn, the fuel consumption,” Captain Rindfleish added.

“When flights are forced to divert to Brisbane they use a lot of fuel so any decrease in weather related diversions offers a welcome fuel saving.

“With this technology, we think we’ll save up to a tonne of fuel on flights into the Sunshine Coast that would traditionally be impacted by weather.

“We’re always looking for ways to safely reduce our operating costs as it allows us to pass on lower fares to our customers.”

Jetstar has been using Smart Tracking in Australian airports since early 2011, while other airlines are expected to gradually adopt the new technology.

The Sunshine Coast joins other major Australian ports such as Melbourne, Adelaide, Cairns Gold Coast and Brisbane in benefitting from the use of RNP on Jetstar flights.

Jetstar operates up to 45 return flights a week to the Sunshine Coast from Sydney and Melbourne.
Lead-in one-way fares from the Sunshine Coast to Sydney start at $89 and $125 to Melbourne.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great images
or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but
with pics and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the
best in its field. Good blog!

Thanks for sharing your ideas. I would also like to state that video
games have been at any time evolving. Betrer technology
and improvements have made it simpler to create authentic and interactive games.
These types of enteertainment games weee not that sensible
when the concept was being tried out. Just like other
areas of technological innovation, video games way ttoo have had to advance as
a result of many many years. This is testimony for
tthe fast grlwth of video games.
I haave observed in the world the present moment,
video games are the latest fad with children of all ages.
Often times it may be out of the question to drag your sson or
daughter away feom the video games. If you want the best of both worlds, here are
plenty oof educational games for kids. Interesting post.

A further issue is that video games aree normally serious in nature with the principal fous on learning rather
than amusement. Although, we have an entertainment pat to keep
children engaged, each game will likely be designed to focs onn
a specific set of skills or course, such as math
concepts or research. Thanks for your posting.
I have figured out some essential things through your site post.
One other subject I would like to say is that there aree lots of games that you can buy which aree designe particularly for toddler age small children. They involve pattern acknowledgement,
colors, pets, and styles. These often focus on familiarization in lieu of memorization. This helps to
keep children and kods engaged without sensing like they are learning.
A different issue is really thst video gaming has become one of the all-time most important forms of excitement for people
of any age. Kids play video games, annd also adults do, too.

The particular XBox 360 is amongst the favorite vvideo games systems for folks who llove to have a huge variety of activities available to them,
in addition to wwho like to play live with othwrs all overr the world.
Many thanks for sharing your notions.
