Sunshine Holiday Reviews Back Jet2 for Issuing Passengers with a Fine

Jet2, the low-cost airline, hit the headlines this year when they sent an unruly passenger a fine of nearly £5,000 after he caused the plane to make a diversion. The passenger was disruptive on-board the airport that was flying from Leeds Bradford Airport To Alicante, which resulted in the aircraft making a diversion to offload him. Sunshine Holiday Reviews, the online travel magazine believe Jet2 were right to issue the fine and would like to see more airlines follow their example. The low-cost airline that has launched a campaign to stamp out bad behaviour on board issued the passenger with a life-long ban and a fine. Sunshine Holiday Reviews would like to see more airlines taking the same action and would like airlines to come together and go even further. The online travel magazine believes that any passenger who is banned from one airline should be banned from all airlines, as they are a risk to other passengers and the safety of the aircraft. A spokesman for the travel magazine has said it is now time that this type of behaviour is stamped out and by airlines coming together, travelling by air could become safer.

Tehran lining up 100bn of energy deals, says MEED

Investment in oil, gas and petrochemicals projects will be priority for post-sanctions Iran     Dubai, United Arab Emirates; 11 September 2015 – Tehran is lining up $100bn worth of energy deals it wants to sign in the aftermath international sanctions being lifted, according to a new report by Middle East business intelligence service MEED.   The lifting of sanctions on Iran is one of the most significant changes to the regional business landscape ever seen in the region and it offers huge opportunities for Iranian and international businesses.   The recently released Opportunity Iran 2015 report says that large-scale investment in oil, gas and petrochemicals projects will be Iran’s top priority once international economic sanctions are lifted.   Iran has the fourth-biggest oil reserves and the largest gas reserves in the world, but years of isolation from the global market has left its hydrocarbons sector in dire need of modernisation.   Investment in Iranian projects is expected to surge once the removal of international sanctions opens the major Middle East economy for business.   The country’s petrochemicals sector – already the region’s second largest – is set to benefit from a wealth of cheap feedstock as Iran starts up[…]
