CAPA notes US-UAE/Qatar subsidy issue could raise its ‘very ugly head again’

    CAPA – Centre for Aviation, in a report entitled: ‘US-Gulf airline conflict: peace with (almost) honour’, stated (25-May-2018) the integrity of open skies agreements between the US, Qatar and the UAE remains intact, representing a positive outcome from the US-UAE open skies negotiations. Both sides in the Gulf subsidy debate have claimed victory, although these “declarations of victory could be somewhat premature”. CAPA noted the subsidy issue could raise its “very ugly head” again, once Gulf airlines resume their growth to the US. [more – CAPA Analysis]
