  2. THAI seals deal with Airbus for hi-tech maintenance centre at U-Tapao airport By The Nation Toulouse, France A perspective of MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) facility to be co-developed by Airbus and Thai Airways International at U-Tapao International Airport. AIRBUS and Thai Airways International (THAI) have signed an agreement to establish a new joint venture maintenance and overhaul (MRO) facility at U-Tapao International Airport in Rayong province. The accord was signed on Friday at Airbus headquarters in Toulouse by Usanee Sangsingkeo, acting president of THAI, and Eric Schulz, chief commercial officer of Airbus, in the presence of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha. Also on hand was Guillaume Faury, president of Airbus Commercial Aircraft. The new MRO will be one of the most modern and extensive in the Asia-Pacific region, offering heavy maintenance and line services for all widebody aircraft types. The facility will feature the latest digital technologies to analyse aircraft maintenance data, as well as advanced inspection techniques, including the use of drones to monitor aircraft airframes. The MRO complex will also have specialised repair shops, including for composite structures, as well as a maintenance training centre offering extensive courses for technical personnel from Thailand and overseas. “THAI and Airbus have undertaken extensive studies to validate the business plan for this exciting project,” said Usanee. “Together we will develop one of the most advanced and efficient aircraft maintenance centres anywhere in the world. We are confident that this venture will bring significant economic benefit for THAI and will be a major driver in the development of the wider aerospace sector in Thailand.” Faury said: “We are pleased to enter into this major agreement with THAI. This will further strengthen the long-term partnership between our two companies and also contribute to the success of Thailand’s new eastern economic zone. With the fleet of widebody aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region set to triple to around 4,800 aircraft over the next 20 years, the project represents a sound business opportunity for both our companies.” Schulz said: “This latest agreement further consolidates our long and special partnership with THAI. This dates back to 1977, when THAI became one of our earliest customers. Since that time Thai has operated every single Airbus type and today flies the complete current widebody family – the A330, the A350 and the A380.” The joint venture between Airbus and THAI will be located at U-Tapao airport in the heart of the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC). The EEC is a core part of the government’s Thailand 4.0 policy, designed to develop world class innovative technology-based manufacturing and services in the country.

Most Thais don’t have enough savings to last six months if they stop working About 80 percent of working Thais, especially among the “Gen Y” and “Gen X” groups, have savings just enough to last only six months if they stop working or become unemployed, according to a study conducted by the Customer Insights Centre of the Thai Military Bank. The study was based on an online survey of working Thais aged 18-54 from the database of 35 million working Thais. Only 20 percent of the working Thais have enough savings to last more than six months after they stop working, said the study, adding that the problem of not enough savings occurs when Thais start working (Gen Y) and carries on until Gen X.

  6. Democracy jungle: Monument to people's power now out of reach By Pravit Rojanaphruk, Senior Staff Writer A beacon of Thailand’s democratic flowering has taken on new symbolic meaning in the fifth year of military rule. When the occasion that brought democracy to Thailand passes all but forgotten Sunday, the Democracy Monument will be physically unreachable. Soaring above a busy traffic circle, its location has been covered with potted plants that make it clear visitors – especially demonstrators – are unwelcome.

    Chester aims to ditch single-use plastic By The Nation Fast-food chain Chester plans to stop single-use plastic for takeaway orders. Full Story: https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/1044433-chester-aims-to-ditch-single-use-plastic/
  8. Chester aims to ditch single-use plastic By The Nation Fast-food chain Chester plans to stop single-use plastic for takeaway orders. Owned by Charoen Pokphand Foods Public Company Limited or CPF, Chester has been serving grilled chicken and Thai rice for more than 30 years with 200 branches in Thailand. Rungthip Prommachat, Chester vice president, said the firm had served reusable melamine plates, stainless forks, spoons and glass tumblers to customers at the outlet for more than 30 years since its opening. This practice is based on CPF policy to reduce waste disposal to landfill by 25 per cent in 2020, compared to the base year of 2015. "We are proud to be the first Thai fast-food restaurant to continuously determine to serve meals with reusable plates, cutlery and glasses at all 200 outlets. This initiative surely serves our customers' needs and helps Chester to be a part of a world that reduces waste," added Rungthip. She said Chester is also considering the use of more biodegradable packaging for delivery instead of single-use plastics. The company's targets are to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse-gas emissions by 15 per cent. It also wants to reduce water consumption and waste disposal to landfill by 25 per cent and 30 per cent respectively from 2015 levels.

  10. The Jerry Springer Show is officially cancelled BY SAM WARNER AND RIANNE HOUGHTON Update: It's the end of an era: The Jerry Springer Show has officially been cancelled, according to reports. Families, friends, couples and everyone in between will now have to find someone else to mediate their weird and wonderful disputes, as NBC Universal has confirmed that there will be no new episodes of the infamous series (via The AP). Producers of the show have called the ordering of original episodes "a possibility" in the future, but have so far not said when that possibility may arise. To paraphrase Jerry, we won't be right back. *Throws chair sadly* Full Story: http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/ustv/news/a859539/jerry-springer-show-cancellation-shock/
