He said that although most of the aircraft were grounded, the airlines still had costs, not only parking fees but also for maintenance services.Denon, therefore, urged the government to start disbursing the promised financial incentives to enable local airlines keep afloat in this difficult situation.“Airlines will follow whatever COVID-19 measures the government imposes, but we are begging the government to immediately disburse the relief funds,” he said.The International Air Transport Association (IATA) in its updated analysis on April 14 estimated that the COVID-19 crisis will lead to drops in airline passenger revenue of $314 billion in 2020, a 55 percent decline compared with 2019.Garuda Indonesia said in a statement on Friday said it would abide by the government’s mudik ban and it would stop flights to all areas that have imposed PSBB measures, such as Jakarta; Surabaya, East Java; Bandung, West Java; Pekanbaru, Riau; Makassar, South Sulawesi; Padang, West Sumatra; Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan; and Tarakan, North Kalimantan. “We are still serving passengers on domestic and international routes that are not connected with red zones,” read the Garuda statement.The mudik ban has also severely affected land transportation.The managing director of one of the country’s largest bus transportation companies, Lorena-Karina, Dwi Rianta Soerbakti, said that the mudik ban would seriously hurt all public bus companies especially small ones. If there are no incentives or support from the government, Dwi said that 50 percent of land transportation operators would go bust by the time the COVID-19 epidemic ends. “Especially, companies which have to make large repayments to leasing companies and banks,” said Dwi on Friday.Even before the mudik ban was imposed, Dwi said public bus companies had already suffered a 90 percent decline in passengers. Many operators have also been forced to put their employees on furlough.“The decision to ban the mudik must be followed by incentive policies that can help transportation companies to survive as all employees and stakeholders will be affected by this decision,” he said.Lorena-Karina has a total of 400 passenger vehicles and 200 cargo vehicles. However, it has had to park up 95 percent of these vehicles and lay off 80 percent of its employees.Richard Soehoko from PO Arimbi, another bus company, which serves inter-city routes, said that with the mudik ban, the land transportation business had pretty much come to a halt. The company has cut its bus services by 75 percent and relies only on freight services to survive.The 2019 mudik saw 18 million people using public transportation during the seven days before and after Idul Fitri, with 5.41 million people traveling by air, 2.85 million by land transportation, 1.17 million by sea transportation, 6.20 million by rail and 2.51 million by ferries.Topics : The government’s recent decision to ban the traditional Idul Fitri mudik (exodus) has added to the misery of Indonesia’s airlines and other public transportation companies whose businesses have been hammered by the COVID-19 epidemic.With the mudik ban, which took effect from April 24 and will last until June 1, travel in and out of virus-hit areas, also known as COVID-19 red zones, is prohibited. The ban applies to Greater Jakarta, the nation’s epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, and other regions that have imposed large-scale restrictions (PSBB).Although the travel ban technically applies to transportation entering and leaving regions with PSBB in effect it stops most or airline services in the country, adding misery to the already hard-hit industry, the chairman of the Indonesia National Air Carrier Association (INACA), Denon Prawiraatmdja, said on April 23. The mudik period is considered the harvest season for the country’s transportation companies because of the sharp increase in the number of passengers, especially during the seven days before and after Idul Fitri at the end of the Ramadan.Prior to the mudik ban, national airlines had been under financial stress because of the sharp decline in passenger numbers since the announcement of the first COVID-19 cases in the country in February, which was later followed by the government’s social-distancing policy including an appeal to work and study from home in the middle of March. According to data from the Finance Ministry, the combined revenue losses among local airlines amounted to Rp 207 billion (US$13.4 million) as of April 15.“With the mudik ban, the impact will be more severe not only for airlines but for all related business including airports and all business activity inside them,” INACA chairman Denon told The Jakarta Post.Denon said flight frequency had declined to just 20 percent of normal before the mudik ban was officially imposed. Most airlines have grounded the majority of their fleets as a result of the lack of passengers. Many employees have also been furloughed.

30 Jan 2015 Golf Tourism England and England Golf join forces Golf Tourism England (GTE), the recently-formed body charged with attracting more visitor income for English golf courses from tourism, is delighted to announce a strategic partnership with England Golf. The agreement signals England Golf’s support for the membership body, which intends to unite the stakeholders within golf tourism in one of the sport’s most developed markets. Since its launch in July 2014, almost 100 golf properties and tour operators have enlisted as GTE members, with further support for the initiative already having been offered by Visit England, the national tourist board. GTE founder and Chief Executive Andrew Cooke said: “We are delighted that England Golf has given its backing to Golf Tourism England and I believe that this partnership will allow us to establish stronger working relationships between the many individual bodies which have a stake in English golf tourism at present. “Our job is to identify opportunities for these groups to work together and create cross-marketing strategies in order for tour operators to create outstanding bespoke packages to benefit the tourism experience. “In recent times, England has been guilty of resting on its laurels, while others around us, particularly our neighbours in Scotland and Ireland, have greatly benefitted on a joined-up approach, which has yielded excellent returns in terms of inbound tourism. “With six Open Championship venues, some of the world’s best examples of links, parkland, heathland and cliff-top golf, as well as vibrant cities and endless miles of beautiful natural countryside, we are confident that a similar approach can establish England as a prominent destination for golfers worldwide.” The partnership supports the aims of England Golf to create a brighter future for the sport. Its strategy, Raising Our Game, was launched last summer to create stronger clubs, increase the number of regular golfers and to halt the decline in club membership. England Golf Chief Executive David Joy, said: “England Golf is working at the heart of a network of partners to build stronger golf clubs. This new partnership offers an excellent opportunity to support and educate clubs to promote themselves to tourists from home and abroad and increase their visitor income. It will also encourage local partnerships, with groups of clubs working alongside tour operators and accommodation providers for the benefit of themselves and their communities. “We will be working closely with Andrew and his team in the coming months to encourage clubs to join GTE and benefit from a more harmonised approach to golf tourism.” To find out more about Golf Tourism England and for membership enquiries, visit www.golftourismengland.com.

The question before Wednesday’s Kootenay International Junior Hockey League clash between West Kootenay rivals Nelson and Castlegar was which Leaf team would show up.Well, Leaf fans were happy to see the Green and White squad of old take to the ice at the NDCC Arena.The problem for Nelson was, so did the defending KIJHL champs from Castlegar.The Rebels, still smarting from a 9-0 drubbing five days ago, started slow but rallied to edge the Leafs 6-5 in double overtime Wednesday in Murdoch Division action in Nelson.Aaron Brewer scored in the final minute of the second overtime period to send the Leafs packing for the second straight time on home ice.The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Rebels — a string where Castlegar was out scored 21-5 by the opposition.Nelson started fast, building a 3-0 lead 18 minutes into the opening period on goals by Linden Horswill and Travis Wellman with a pair of power play markers. But a goal in the final 40 seconds of the period by Aaron Petten gave the Rebels new life.Connor Beahchemin and Darren Medeiros, the latter coming again in the final minute of the period, tied the game for Castlegar.In the third the teams traded goals with Alec Wikinson giving Nelson a 4-3 lead before Derek Georgopoulos and Diego Bartlett put the Rebels back in front.Jamie Vlanich tied the game sending the contest into extra time.Nelson out shot the Rebels 37-35.Nate Rabbit out dueled Brad Rebagliati in goal to grab the win for Castlegar.Nelson, 32-8-1-4, once again squandered a chance to take over top spot in the Murdoch Division. The Leafs are now tied with Beaver Valley after the Hawks lost Tuesday to Creston.Meanwhile the Rebels put a little more distance between third place and the hard-charging Spokane Braves. Castlegar leads Spokane by three points.Nelson, losers of three of the last five games, travel to Spokane to face the Braves Friday while Castlegar travels to Creston Friday.OVERTIME: The KIJHL’s leading scorer, Jamie Vlanich extended his lead on Nick Josephs to nine points after totalling three points Wednesday. Teammate Travis Wellman also had three points. Alec Wikinson and Linden Horswill each had two points. . . .Connor Beahchemin, Diego Bartlett, Derek Georgopoulos and Jeremy McNeill each finished the game with two points for Castlegar. . . .

Leaf captain Darnel St. Pierre missed his second game due to suspension. St. Pierre is expected to be back in the lineup Friday against Spokane. Leafs Kyle Clayton played his first game for Nelson on the blueline.
8 April 2014Having previously excelled at Cascades MTB Park, Australian downhill racing siblings, Mick and Tracey Hannah, are hoping to make history by winning the men’s and women’s titles at the opening round of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, which gets under way in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa on Friday.South Africa’s Greg Minnaar edged out Mick for the title at the 2013 UCI MTB and Trials World Championships in Pietermaritzburg last year, and Hannah has been hard at work in the off-season in an attempt to get himself back to the summit of his discipline. With Minnaar competing, but working his way back from knee surgery, a golden opportunity awaits the quietly spoken Aussie.‘We’re giving ourselves a good chance’“Going into the season, I have changed my training a little this year,” the Hutchinson UR Team rider said in a statement on Monday. “So far I’m really happy with the results, but I never know until the first race. Also, we have done a lot of work with the bike, so I think we’re giving ourselves a good chance to do well this year.”Hannah has twice placed second in Pietermaritzburg, both times behind Minnaar, in the 2009 World Cup leg and then again at the World Championships seven months ago. With good knowledge of the course and a fondness for the unique layout, his chances of going one better in 2014 seem bright.‘It’s fast and fun’“I really enjoy riding the Cascades course,” he enthused. “It’s fast and fun. It’s definitely physically demanding as well. I think it’s an exciting venue.“I have done well here consistently. I really enjoy the high speed courses and here you need a lot of power, which is a strength of mine,” he added.“Getting a good start to the season is very important for me. As I said before, I would love to win. Firstly, because of my history in Pietermaritzburg, but also because the second round is at home in Cairns, and I would love to start there with the leader’s jersey.”Memorable victoryTracey Hannah rode to a memorable victory in Pietermaritzburg in 2012, but was unable to repeat her feat in 2013, when British rider Rachel Atherton produced a near flawless display to claim the world champion’s rainbow-striped jersey.Hannah has been plagued by injury in recent times, but she heads into the Pietermaritzburg World Cup with a clean bill of health.“I’ve had probably the best off season I’ve ever had,” she said. “In the past I’ve had injuries, but this season has been clean and I’m feeling fit and fast with no injuries.”‘It’s a really great track’She said was looking forward to the unique challenges posed by the Cascades downhill course. “I think it’s a really great track. I love the speed and the jumps and it’s super fun to ride and hard to race. It’s usually slippery and dusty, so the bike gets loose, but I just love the speed of the track and the way it’s built to flow.“The most original thing about Cascades must be the people, the atmosphere. It’s very different to say Europe or anywhere,” she smiled.“I’d love to win it again, but my goal this season is to be consistent without injury.“I’d say getting a good start to the season is very important, but all my eggs aren’t in the Pietermaritzburg basket. I just hope to do my best race and I’ll be happy with that.”SAinfo reporter
