That number of aircraft positions was thought to be sufficient for the next few years The system of piers consisted of a full mid- dle pier, and two sidepiers, which were only constructed to half their final length. The arrival of the Boeing 747-B, of which KLM will have seven by the end of this year, has made early expansion ne- cessary. The C- or southern pier is now being fully equipped to handle these wide- body aircraft and is being ex- tended by over 440 feet for this purpose. The arrival halls are also being extended consider- ibly. VOLCANO IS FOR TOURISTS This is Haleakala, on Maui Island, Hawaii, the larg- est dormant volcano in the world. It is 19 square miles in area and 21 miles in circum- ference. Its rim is more than feet above sea level. Inside, there is a drop of feet from the rim to the floor.

Back in 1939 Aeroflot and Swedish Airlines (ABA) one of the three par- ent companies of SAS were seriously considering joint op- eration of a Great Circle route linking Europe and the Orient. The "Scan-Asia Air Express" would more than halve travel time between Scandinavia and Japan or China. But plans were curtailed by the world situation in 1939. Nearly 32 years later, though, SAS and Aeroflot will launch one-stop Trans-Siberian flights between Copenhagen and Tokyo, lopping kilometers and nearly four hours off the previous shortest routing. SAS will operate the kilometer, 13-hour Trans-Si- berian Express eastbound Sat- urdays, Aeroflot on Wednes- days. SAS will fly westbound with daylight all the way Sundays, Aeroflot on Thurs- days. According to the schedule, t h e Trans Siberian Express leaves from Copenhagen on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 12 noon, arriving in Tokyo early following morning. This offers excellent connections t o SAS flights from Montreal, de- parting daily at p.m.. with arrival in Copenhagen follow- ing morning at New service Businessmen travelling by air find a new service at the Cologne-Bonn airport of Wahn: hostess secretaries will take down dictation between a.m. and 10 p.m. Fees start at 25 marks per hour. The hostess- secretary service will also sup- ply an interpreter or guide for a stop-over in Cologne between flights. P and 0 Lines and BOAC will join forces on ten Medi- terranean fly-cruise holidays wiih an all-inclusive price tag. Gateway cities for the 18, 19 and 20-day holidays will be Toronto, New York, Chicago, Detroit, Boston and Miami. Connecting flights can be made from other cities. The package will include round-trip air transportation between the North American gateways and London; hotel accommodation; theatre vista and tours in arid around the British capital; a Mediterra- nean cruise aboard a P and 0 ship; and shore excursions at some ports of call. Various cruises will visit Athens, Na- ples, Barcelona, Lisbon, Gi- braltar, Elba, Palma, Tene- rife, Madeira, Vigo, Istanbul, Ajaccio, Izmir, Alicante Can- nes Malta, Majorca and Paler- mo. P and O's S.S. Canberra, S.S. Oriana and S.S. Oronsay are the cruise ships. The first fly-cruise holiday departs June 7; five others are scheduled for July departures; two for September and one for October. A special Christmas-New Year's cruise aboard the ton Canberra is planned for De- cember. A.M.A. WORLD TRAVEL LOOKS AFTER 'ROUND THE WORLD TRAVELLERS!
