Medal of Honor Row Installed in Phoenix https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-2/1720City Council District 21/26/2021 5:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1720/moh4 (1).jpgMedal of Honor Row Installed in Phoenix <div class="ExternalClass97944568D3B1418EBB126DADFC055356"><html>​Earlier this month, the Arizona Medal of Honor Row was installed in the City of Phoenix's District 2, near Pinnacle Peak and Cave Creek Roads, which is adjacent to the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona. The sign installation honors individuals with ties to Arizona who have received the Medal of Honor. These individuals have served the country and Arizona with heroic valor and honor. <br><br>The Medal of Honor is the United States government's highest and most-prestigious military decoration that may be awarded to recognize those who risk their lives above and beyond the call of duty.<br><br>The installation honors 37 recipients, including: William Alchesay, a White Mountain Apache leader, who was awarded for gallant conduct during the Indian Wars, Isaiah Mays, a Buffalo Solider who was awarded for his actions during a robbery in the Arizona Territory, Manuel Mendoza, the “Arizona Kid" for his heroism in World War II and Joseph Foss, a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve awarded for his heroism serving in the Marine Fighting Squadron 121, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing. <br><br>“The Medal of Honor recognizes our country's most valiant men and women, with 37 of these honorees having ties to our state," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “This signage installation helps to bring awareness to these local heroes so that their sacrifices may never be forgotten." <br><br> “We must honor our veterans from the present and past who have fearlessly protected our state and country," said District 2 Councilman Jim Waring. “It's been an honor to assist in making the Arizona Medal of Honor Row a reality."<br> <br>The idea for the Arizona Medal of Honor Row was brought to Councilman Waring by Phoenix resident Archie Dicksion. “Arizona throughout its history has had individuals that have stood head and shoulders above others in protecting those around them," said Dicksion. “So that others may know their deeds, we dedicate this row to them."<br><br>The Arizona Medal of Honor row was made possible by the Phoenix Street Transportation Department. Crews from the department's sign shop designed, fabricated and installed all of the signage along Medal of Honor Row. The project was funded by the District 2 Office. <br><br><p>A list of the Arizona Medal of Honor Recipients can be found here: <a href="https://avhof.org/inductees/medal-of-honor-recipients/" target="_blank">https://avhof.org/inductees/medal-of-honor-recipients/</a><br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district2Newsdistrict-2District 2JimWaring

Councilman Jim Waring Applauds Added International Flights to Phoenix Sky Harborhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-2/685City Council District 28/7/2019 5:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/685/newsroom_aviation_039.jpgCouncilman Jim Waring Applauds Added International Flights to Phoenix Sky Harbor<div class="ExternalClass1C238A5A858D45B9870643C0E3F66A41"><html> <p>​<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">​Phoenix, AZ – Eurowings, a Lufthansa Group airline, has announced the start of new nonstop flights between Frankfurt, Germany and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Service on the Airbus 330-200 aircraft will begin April 29, 2020, five days per week until November (Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri, Sun). Flights will leave Frankfurt at 2:05 PM, arriving in Phoenix at 5:05 PM then depart Phoenix at 6:55 PM, arriving in Frankfurt the next day at 3:05 PM. </span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">​</span></p> <p>The aircraft will have a three-class configuration, with 22 business class seats, 17 premium class seats and an economy class offering 231 seats. In total, the flights will have a capacity of 270.<br></p> <p>“We are thrilled to connect the Phoenix metropolitan area with Lufthansa's Frankfurt hub, where we offer over 200 connecting flights to cities across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.<br></p> <p>Phoenix is one of the top growth areas in the Southwest, with a robust economy that has links to companies in Europe and beyond. The new Eurowings flights will definitely usher in a new era for both leisure and business travelers alike in Arizona and throughout the Lufthansa network," said Frank Naeve, Vice President of Sales, The Americas, Lufthansa Group.<br></p> <p>As part of the Lufthansa Group, Eurowings currently offers U.S. service from German cities to Miami, Fort Myers, Newark, New York's JFK and Las Vegas. Along with Phoenix, the airline will also launch Frankfurt-Anchorage, Munich-Las Vegas and Munich-Orlando service in the 2020 summer schedule. Flights go on sale today. More information about the airline can be found here: <a href="https://www.lufthansa.com/us/en/lufthansa-group-star-alliance-and-partner-airlines" target="_blank">https://www.lufthansa.com/us/en/lufthansa-group-star-alliance-and-partner-airlines</a>.<br></p> <p>Condor Airlines began nonstop seasonal service from Phoenix Sky Harbor to Frankfurt in May 2018. It was so successful that they quickly announced an expansion. Phoenix had service to Dusseldorf and Frankfurt, Germany on LTU and Lufthansa Airlines from 2001-2003. Sky Harbor has had daily service to London on British Airways since 1996.<br></p> <p>Phoenix international flights add over $3 Billion to the local economy each year per the Airport's most recent economic impact study. Just the daily nonstop to London is responsible for $2.3 million a day being injected into the Greater Phoenix economy.<br></p> <p>The Phoenix City Council approved an updated airline incentive program, allowing for funds to promote overseas flights. This is standard procedure at most major airports today and can tip the scales when an airline is choosing between cities. The funds are 100% from airport revenues- not tax dollars. The Arizona Office of Tourism, along with the convention bureaus of Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert and Glendale are also financially supporting the effort.<br> <br></p> <p style="text-decoration:underline;"> <strong style="">Quotes from Phoenix Mayor and City Council</strong> </p> <p>“Phoenix is a global city in every sense of the word. The success of our economy, our culture, and our future greatly depend upon our ability to successfully connect with urban centers around the world. Sky Harbor has already added three new international flights this year, an impressive testament to the many innovative and exciting things happening here in Phoenix." <br> Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego<br><br> “Lufthansa's Eurowings new nonstop flight between Frankfurt, Germany and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is a result of the increasing demand for travel in this strong market along with the hard work by Sky Harbor executives since our meeting with Lufthansa last year. Lufthansa is an important partner at our airport and this new service will have a positive impact on our airport, economy and residents."<br> Councilwoman Thelda Williams, District 1<br> Chair Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee<br> <br><strong>“The announcement by Eurowings is an important one for our community. It not only shows that international flights are in demand here in Phoenix, but it benefits our City's economy by bringing in additional business investment and visitors."</strong><br> <strong>Councilman Jim Waring, District 2</strong><br> <br>“Eurowings newest, nonstop flight between Frankfurt, Germany and Phoenix will infuse new revenue into our local economy while providing our residents another option to access Europe. This new service will continue to put Phoenix on the global map encouraging more international services."<br> Councilwoman Laura Pastor, District 4<br> Member of the Transportation, Infrastructure and Innovation Subcommittee<br> <br>“Acquiring a carrier under the Lufthansa flag is an enormous accomplishment for our city and we look forward to having yet another nonstop flight to Europe."<br> Councilman Sal DiCiccio, District 6<br> <br>“It is great to see our City Council approved Airline Incentive Program continually pay dividends to our community with the addition of another non-stop flight to Frankfurt. This route is meaningful for Phoenix as a sign of strength in our City as a global destination and a gateway to Europe for Phoenix residents."<br> Councilman Michael Nowakowski, District 7<br> <br>“This flight is a great opportunity for Phoenix to showcase our city on an international stage and be a leader in connecting our community to the world. I'm sure this flight will lead to endless opportunities for what's possible here in our growing city."<br> Councilman Carlos Garcia, District 8</p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district2Newsdistrict-2District 2JimWaring
