Earlier this week, the State Department reached an agreement with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to end the massive subsidies to its state-owned airlines, Emirates and Etihad Airways. The billions of dollars of subsidies the UAE has pumped into their airlines has long undercut the U.S. airline industry and harmed American workers. The agreement is similar to the one the U.S. reached with Qatar in January.
The UAE and the U.S. will meet in one year to review the progress of the terms of the agreement, and The Partnership for Open and Fair Skies will work closely with the State Department to ensure both the UAE and Qatar abide by the terms of the agreements so that fair competition is restored to the global aviation marketplace.
This is good news for Flight Attendants and good news for the industry. APFA is proud to stand with our brother and sister Unions in this fight to keep the competitive landscape level. When we compete fairly, we win.
