A quiet resort in Bali (Photo: Nikkei) Speaking in a press conference on April 19, he claimed the multilateral discussions were advancing and being finalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Uno added that the chances of the two aforementioned countries opening a tourism deal are mainly because both the UAE and Qatar have continued to serve Indonesian flights during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also said Indonesia had opened its international doors to Poland and Ukraine. The Indonesian government is planning to open a travel bubble partnership to lure international tourists in June or July and prepare Bali as the first destination for tourists. The local administration has named three green zones safe for tourist visitations including Ubud, Nusa Dua and Sanur. Uno also mentioned a future visit by the Prime Minister of Singapore, who will meet with President Joko Widodo to discuss multiple topics, including plans to open travel bubbles for international tourists.

Dubai Aerospace Enterprise orders 15 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft

0
DUBAI: Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) on Tuesday announced an order for 15 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, signalling an end to the aircraft leasing giant’s pricing standoff with planemakers. Dubai state-owned DAE in 2019 abandoned plans to place a major order with Airbus and Boeing after it said it was unable to reach agreements on pricing. It instead sought to expand its fleet by taking over a rival, which is yet to take place, and bought aircraft from airlines who would then take them back on lease. “We are delighted to deepen our already strong relationship with Boeing,” DAE Chief Executive Firoz Tarapore said in a statement. “We are confident in the success of these aircraft as domestic and regional air travel is seeing strong signs of recovery.” Show of confidence The order, worth $1.8 billion at list prices, though discounts are common, also signals a further show of confidence in the narrow-body jet that until recently was banned worldwide. The US late last year lifted its safety ban, imposed after two fatal crashes in 2018 and 2019 and the UAE followed earlier this year. DAE, which says it own and manages 162 Boeing aircraft, last year announced an agreement to...
