The German's wanderlust stopped him in his tracks

Germans remain keen to travel. According to the current "vacation travel trend", 2018 should also be a good year for the industry.

"The vacation spirit is pronounced. A further slight growth in demand is possible," said tourism researcher martin lohmann on friday at the presentation of the study at the start of the travel trade fair CMT. 43 percent of respondents had both a desire for a vacation and enough time and money for it. "The vacation mood of germans is growing from year to year," said lohmann.

With a share of about 30 percent, domestic vacation destinations are expected to top the list again this year, followed by destinations in spain, italy, turkey and austria. Turkey remains an important travel destination despite loss of market share, study says. The world’s largest travel company, tui, recently reported a renewed interest among germans in vacation travel to turkey.

Us labor market recovers despite continuing corona trap

Nearly five million americans got back to work in june, but new doom looms as corona pandemic worsens in southern part of country.

Statistics from the world’s roughest economy could hardly have been more contradictory on thursday: the unemployment rate fell more sharply than expected from 13.3 percent in may to 11.1 percent in june, while coronavirus pandemic figures set new negative records. U.S. Authorities reported wednesday 50.000 new infections – more than ever before. And an improvement in the situation did not seem to be in sight in the short term.

There is an explanation for the contradiction between labor market data and infections: the unemployment rate for june was based on data that only reflected the situation up to the middle of the month. Possible effects of the recent dramatic worsening of the pandemic were therefore not yet reflected in the figures. "We expect the recovery from now on to be much bumpier with much slower gains in new jobs," said therefore analyst michael pearce of the consultancy capital economics.

Worry and longing: refugees in the gaza strip

Rukaja al-hissi sits on her bed like a queen. The 79-year-old wears a leopard print headscarf, a green wool blanket over her legs, and the beads of a prayer chain glide through her fingers.

"We never expected to be away from jaffa for all these years," says palastinian woman at her home in gaza refugee camp. Their grandson osama adds: "this is only a temporary home, sooner or later we will go back to jaffa."He has never been to the arab-populated district of the israeli coastal city of tel aviv.

Rukaja fled with her family from jaffa to gaza, some 80 kilometers to the south, in 1948, when she was ten years old. More than 700.000 palastinians were displaced during the first middle east war between israel and its neighboring arab countries. Many came to the gaza strip, which at the time came under agyptian control and is now ruled by the radical islamic hamas.

The planning approval procedure for a new airfield near neida/wiesenfeld ran for five years. Now it has been discontinued because the so-called combined solution is coming: at the brandensteinsebene airfield, the approach lighting is being expanded, and the special landing field in bamberg with its longer runway can be approached using the instrument flight procedure. Neither of these things had existed until then, and because the approach lighting in coburg did not comply with the guidelines, the end of instrument flying was threatened here.

Thanks to the combination, the local companies do not need a new airfield anymore. They had demanded it and had even been prepared to help finance its construction. However, there was strong opposition to the project among the population at neida. In addition, there were considerable doubts as to whether an airfield could be approved at this location. The planning approval process had been dragging on for some time when the proposal from the bamberg-coburg combination came in the summer of 2017.

Now the planning approval procedure has been discontinued. In 2014, the project company for the coburg airfield (PGVC) applied to initiate the procedure; in september, it withdrew the application. The costs of the proceedings must nevertheless be borne by the company. Now the air office of northern bavaria has sent the PGVC the appropriate notice. 200,000 euros are to be paid, of which the city must pay exactly 77,334 euros, or about 38 percent.
