When it comes to spare parts, airlines have a second option — the secondhand market — and it's taking off. More and more aircraft owners are choosing to dismantle aircraft at a younger age and sell them in parts, making more money than if they were sold whole. More and more operators are buying used parts; spending less money than if they bought new.

TechCrunch Cortana is set to fly the friendly skies thanks to a new partnership between Microsoft and Boeing, bringing the Microsoft intelligent assistant closer still to the domain of its namesake. Microsoft and Boeing announced a partnership to move Boeing’s suite of digital aviation offerings over to Azure, and the end result is that said servers are going to begin to get smarter, according to Microsoft.
The Washington Post China and Russia are making their presence felt in the multibillion-dollar aviation market. With demand for single-aisle aircraft expected to grow for years to come, particularly from Asia, some experts think the new firms have a real chance at cracking the market, especially if they have the backing of their national governments.
Palmetto Business Daily Three hundred passengers were delivered from Johannesburg to Cape Town, South Africa recently via the first passenger flights powered with sustainable aviation biofuel. The flights were offered by Boeing in cooperation with South African Airways (SAA) and economy carrier company Mango on Boeing 737-800 aircrafts. Sustainable aviation biofuel is comprised of Sunchem's nicotine-free tobacco plant Solaris, refined by AltAir Fuels and supplied by SkyNRG.
