2022: The MILESTONE YEAR

Jetex Annual Review

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Dec. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The business aviation industry is currently going through the biggest transition in history, accelerated by the digitalisation, accessibility, and the exceptional travel conveniences that it offers against the backdrop of a gradual recovery from the health crisis. In many ways, it reflects the fourth industrial revolution, which is more significant, and its ramifications more profound, than in any prior period of human history.

With the private jet traffic setting new records in 2022, experts predict up to 8,500 new business jet deliveries until 2031, which amounts to an estimated total value of US$ 274 billion. At the same time, sustainability is at the top of the agenda to ensure that the industry develops in line with the decarbonisation goals set by IATA.

The record results could not have been achieved without the efficiency and exceptional ability of the business aviation industry to adapt and to remain connected to its customers, continuing to inspire their desire to travel and discover.

For the first time, Jetex invites you to discover the latest trends in private aviation, and what will shape the global industry in the future in its interactive annual review.

Evinayong welcomes Equatorial Guinea’s Father Christmas entourage

The ASHO Honorary President, H. E. Nguema Obiang Mangue, reached Evinayong on his tour of all provincial capitals, implementing the slogan “One toy, one dream”.

After starting the tour in Malabo on the 24th of this month, followed by Bata, Ebebiyin, and Mongomo, on Wednesday 28th December it was the turn of the children of the city of Alo Milam to receive their toys from the hands of Equatorial Guinea’s Father Christmas.

In fact, the parents and carers of these children feel that the help offered comes at the right time, given that with the holidays and festivities, the toys are an additional attraction for the children.

In Evinayong, as in other provincial capitals throughout the country, there was a massive turnout of children, accompanied at all times by their parents or guardians, who ensured that the children returned safely and happily to their homes.

South Africa: President Ramaphosa mourns loss of life in Boksburg blast

PRETORIA, President Cyril Ramaphosa has sent his sympathies to the families of those who died following the explosion of gas cylinders on a truck at Boksburg last week.

The incident left at least 18 people dead, several others injured and caused extensive damage to homes and infrastructure – particularly a hospital near where the incident occurred.

“The nation’s hearts go out to everyone affected by this devastating incident. Such events take on greater sadness and tragedy when they occur at this time of year when all of us pray for safety and look forward to the togetherness and comfort of extended time with family and friends.

“In this instance, the loss of life is rendered more intense because some of the victims were hospital patients, hospital staff and children, while firefighters are counted among the injured,” the President said.

The truck driver had attempted to drive through a bridge underpass and got stuck underneath – leading to the explosion.

He has since been arrested and charged with multiple counts of culpable homicide, negligent causing of an explosion resulting in death and malicious damage to property.

“While we await the outcome of investigations into this tragedy, this incident does, like so many others, call on all of us to show due care and to avoid risk when we are out on our roads which we share as a public amenity,” President Ramaphosa said.

Families whose homes were destroyed in the blast are being relocated by the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality and the damage to the hospital is currently being assessed.

The President expressed his appreciation for both governmental and non-governmental efforts to assist those in need.

“As government, we are taking all necessary actions to bring relief to persons affected by the incident and we draw inspiration in our own efforts from the demonstrations of Ubuntu we are seeing on the part of communities and community-based organisations.

“While these interventions bring us hope and light in our darkest hour, we must always live by the resolve to prevent such catastrophe from taking place in the first place,” the President said.

Princeton University plans Toni Morrison tribute in 2023

Princeton, N.J., A monthslong Toni Morrison tribute at Princeton University, where the Nobel laureate taught for 17 years, will range from music created and performed by Grammy-winning vocalist Ce´cile McLorin Salvant to a spring lecture series and three-day symposium featuring author Edwidge Danticat, among others.

The tribute will center on “Toni Morrison: Sites of Memory,” an exhibition drawn from her archives that will explore her creative process through manuscripts, correspondence between herself and other Black women, photographs, maps she drew while working on her acclaimed novel “Beloved,” rare drafts of her novel “Song of Solomon” and various unfinished projects.

The exhibit runs at the Princeton University Library from Feb. 22 to June 4, AP reports.

“In imagining this initiative from exhibition to symposium to partner projects I wanted to show the importance of the archive to understanding Morrison’s work and practice. But I also wanted to show how this archive in particular is a site that opens up new lines of inquiry and inspires new kinds of collaboration,” said curator Autumn Womack, assistant professor of English and African American Studies at Princeton, in a statement released Wednesday.

Morrison, who died in 2019 at age 88, was also known for such novels as “Sula,” “The Bluest Eye” and “Jazz.” She won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1993.
