Emirates reiterates commitment to American economy and passenger market


Emirates Airline has stressed its commitment to the US economy and passenger market, despite the ongoing open-skies row. Orlando is the latest American destination to be served by the Dubai-based carrier – and studies estimate that the new route will create 1,400 new jobs and generate an annual economic impact of $100 million (AED 3.7 billion). This comes amid attempts by the three-big US airline companies to push for a review of the US-UAE aviation agreement. Speaking to ARN, His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline & Group, shared his thoughts on the issue.
