Bonza Airlines gears up for 2022 launch, but why use the Boeing 737 MAX?



In these pandemic times, the last business you’d think of entering the market is a new airline

But for Australia’s new budget airline, Bonza, the sky truly is your limit. 

Thousands of travellers have had their say about the new low-cost carrier ahead of its launch in the first half of 2022. 

Since Bonza was announced in mid-October, thousands of potential future customers signed up to learn more about the airline and what’s on offer.

Many completing an online survey to nominate their preferred Bonza destinations.

That’s in addition to over 3,600 Aussies who registered their interest in jobs

Bonza has revealed where Aussie travellers say they’d like the low-cost carrier to fly to and from. 

Being considered are destinations that spread far and wide across the country from Hobart to Broome, and Busselton to Cairns.

They also include travel from the regions with places like Albury, Tamworth, the Bundaberg and Newcastle all on the consideration list. 

The airline, backed by US firm 777 partners plans to use the Boeing  737 Max, an aircraft that’s had its fair share of bad press.

Chief Commercial Officer Carly Povey spoke to Ticker News’ Ahron Young – and says the 737 MAX is the aircraft of choice.

Bonza is currently in negotiations to firm up its launch route map

In parallel with airport discussions, the airlines leadership team continues to have conversations with State and Territory Governments to confirm where it’ll set up it’s head office

The industry has had its fair share of devastation, with the collapse of multiple airlines around the world.

Meanwhile the Australian aviation sector is set to slowly recover as state and international borders reopen, as the COVID vaccine rollout continues.

Amazon employees walk out to protest office policies



Staff at warehousing giant Amazon have walked off the job to protest the company’s return-to-office program

Over 1,900 Amazon employees pledged to protest globally over proposed changes to the company’s climate policy, layoffs and a return-to-office mandate.

The activist group behind the rally is known as Amazon Employees for Climate Justice (AECJ), who are seeking a greater voice for employees.

“Our goal is to change Amazon’s cost/benefit analysis on making harmful, unilateral decisions that are having an outsized impact on people of color, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable people,” organisers said.

Over 100 people gathered at the heart of Amazon’s Seattle headquarters on Wednesday. The company said it had not witnessed any other demonstrations.

AECJ said the walkout comes after Amazon made moves “in the wrong direction”.

The company recently has recently overturned a desire to make all Amazon shipments net zero for carbon emissions by 2030.

The company maintains a pledge on climate change.

Amazon spokesperson Brad Glasser told Reuters the company is pursuing a strategy to cut carbon emissions.

“For companies like ours who consume a lot of power, and have very substantial transportation, packaging, and physical building assets, it’ll take time to accomplish.”

AECJ protesters also sought support for the 27,000 staff, who had lost their jobs in recent months —around 9 per cent of Amazon’s global workforce.

The company has also mandated a return-to-office program.

As employees recover from the height of the pandemic, the Great Resignation has come to light

The pandemic saw the term ‘the great resignation’ coined as thousands of people resigned from their jobs across the U.S. in 2021 and 2022.

Karin Reed, the author of ‘Suddenly Hybrid said the great resignation was a period of employees taking control of their future.

“A lot of people realised in their current environment they were not happy with what they were doing with their job. They chose to vote with their feet and go elsewhere,

In other parts of the world, a spike in resignations was not reported.

However, a higher degree of workers began reporting post-Covid burnout, as they made a return to the office.

“There’s been a blurring of the lines. You have work that’s not confined by a physical space.

“Instead of closing the computer and walk away, our computer is in the next room.”
