U.S. airline industry: Abu Dhabi deal harms U.S.

07/22/2013 | Hill, The

Nicholas Calio, the president and CEO of Airlines for America, joins two other industry leaders, Capt. Lee Moak and Edward Wytkind, in describing why the Abu Dhabi customs preclearance facility is bad for the U.S. "The U.S. airline industry is not afraid of competition, but we expect our government to work with us, not against us, to level the playing field. Our industry supports 10 million jobs and more than $1 trillion in annual economic activity," they write. "Our government's actions should be designed to expand the U.S. airline industry's ability to drive the economy, not undermine it. DHS should heed the message it has received from Congress, the airline industry, and aviation and travel professionals - halt this flawed agreement and instead pledge to work collaboratively with us to resolve lengthy wait times at U.S. airports.”
