Washington, D.C. (October 5, 2017) – In response to UAE Ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba’s visit today to Boeing South Carolina, the Partnership for Open & Fair Skies released the following statement:

“U.S. carriers are Boeing’s largest customers. But more importantly, Boeing is at the forefront of challenging foreign government subsidies exactly like those given by the UAE to Emirates and Etihad,” said Jill Zuckman, chief spokesperson for the Partnership for Open & Fair Skies. “We agree with Boeing – foreign government subsidies are antithetical to free and fair trade.”
