Case Closed: U.S. Gov’t Must Hold Consultations with UAE, Qatar

In May, ALPA pointed out in comments to the DOT that U.S. cities and communities of every size have a stake in making certain that U.S. airlines do business in a fair marketplace. This fundamental principle is something that the U.S. air services agreements require and that all who depend on U.S. air transportation should demand.

In the end, all that ALPA––along with the 262 members of Congress, many U.S. airlines, and airline passengers––asks is for countries that sign air services agreements with the United States also abide by them. It is up to the U.S. government to enter into consultations with the UAE and Qatar to put an end to market-distorting subsidies that place U.S. airline workers’ jobs at risk.
