"With insufficient fuel, no life jackets or other safety features, and often with no means to call for help, such as a satellite phone, these boats have virtually no chance of reaching European coasts by themselves and they are in need of rescue from the moment they depart," the report states. It added that in the first half of 2017, 73,000 refugees and migrants reached Italy by sea, 14 per cent more than in the same period the previous year. It is estimated that by the end of June, 2,0030 people had died or gone missing when making the crossing. The organisation warned that at this rate, 2017 could be the deadliest year for migrants in the Mediterranean.

Airbus said last deliveries of the world's largest passenger aircraft, which cost about $25bn (£19.4bn) to develop, would be made in 2021. The decision comes after Emirates, the largest A380 customer, cut its order. The A380 faced fierce competition from smaller, more efficient aircraft and has never made a profit.

EUROPEAN airline manufacturer AIRBUS scraps production of A380 superjumbo jet as sales slump

Airbus announced on February 14 that it will stop the production of the A380, the world’s biggest passenger plane, by 2021.

The announcement came after Dubai-based Emirates Airlines slashed its planned fleet size of A380s by 39 aircraft, from 162 to 123. Emirates will now only take 14 additional A380s over the next two years. The company will instead purchase 70 smaller A330neo and A350 wide-bodied jets. Three will be delivered to Japan’s ANA airlines.
