Norwegian Air International Call to Action

ALPA’s Policy Paper

In this year’s edition of Leveling the Playing Field, the third edition of ALPA’s policy paper, the Association provides the blueprint lawmakers need to make U.S. airlines viable companies in the global marketplace. With the deck stacked against the United States, it’s vital that the U.S. government act on the issues threatening the airline industry. The U.S. airline industry is in survival mode, and only the strongest (and/or best funded) will rise above the noise in Washington, D.C.

Call to Action:
Act Now: Tell the White House to Support FFDO Funding

With the fiscal year 2016 budget about to be released by the White House, ALPA has launched a new Call to Action for you to tell the White House why it should preserve the Federal Flight Deck Officer program. In the light of recent events in Europe and the Middle East, securing our National Airspace System through fiscally responsible programs like FFDO is simply sound policy. All ALPA members are urged to take action now.

Call to Action:
Support Reforms to Export-Import Bank Reauthorization to Protect U.S. Aviation Jobs

The Export-Import Bank (Bank) authorization expires on June 30, 2015, which is not much time to impress upon lawmakers that targeted, pragmatic reforms must be included in any legislation. Simply put, the Bank must stop financing widebody aircraft for foreign airlines that are state-owned or state-sponsored or which are credit-worthy. We urge ALPA members to take action now to Level the Playing Field for U.S. airlines and to protect our jobs! It’s critical that pilots act now! Failure to act means the Bank will enable our foreign competitors to drive U.S. carriers out of routes costing pilots’ jobs and future opportunities. Stand up for your job and our industry by contacting your members of Congress. You can read more here.
