Qatar Airways calls for continued open skies

Group Chief Executive for Qatar Airways Akbar Al Baker Holds Press Conference in Washington D.C.

Addressing a landmark press conference in Washington D.C. recently, Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive for Qatar Airways added the airline’s voice to the ongoing US Open Skies debate. During his visit, Mr. Al Baker also met with government officials and prepared for upcoming US launches to Los Angeles, Boston, and Atlanta.

Al Baker refuted the “baseless” claims of the “Big Three” US airlines (American, Delta & United), calling them “a transparent attempt to block new competition and limit consumer choice”.

“US Open Skies Agreements are about offering choice – the ability to fly with the airline you prefer, to regions which are under-served by US carriers,” said Mr. Al Baker. “The Big Three want to restrict choice. World travelers would suffer if they succeed.”
