IATA announced that industrial action would threaten Spain weak upturn. This is not the time for strikes said in a report by Giovanni Bisignani Director General of IATA. The settlement is fair, open and objective the variation between AENA and air traffic controllers.

The Australia Government assured that it will include a $20 million possibility study of a fast rail transport between Newcastle and Sydney on Australia east coast.
The Government yesterday revived plans to connect Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne through high speed rail with focus on connecting Newcastle and Sydney.
The study would start later this year and would take about 18 months to complete said in a report by Anthony Albanese transportation Minister. The study would also consider the possibility of including Wollongong.
The biggest level will be looking at Sydney and Newcastle as first pace with the plan that it would look at the possibility of constructing bigger network which could involve Wollongong. Wollongong community leaders are looking for a high speed rail ever since mid 90s.
The government have considered high speed rail since 1981 but the expenditure prohibited it to go forward. The study not repeats earlier government and is dissimilar because it is looking at geotechnical and engineering problems related with it and looking at building cost.
The high speed rail technology has moved ahead largely in recent years. Meeting the challenge of climate change increases the economic viability of transport options which produce less carbon emissions said in a report by Mr Albanese.
