‘Open Skies’ vital to American job creation, says UAE’s US ambassador

The ‘Open Skies’ agreement between the UAE and the United States benefits both countries by creating and supporting jobs in both countries, according to UAE Ambassador to the United States Yousef Al Otaiba.

Speaking during a visit to Boeing employees in Charleston, South Carolina, Al Otaiba said that “without Open Skies, the full scope of Boeing’s business with UAE airlines – and the economic benefits realised by communities all across the US – would not be possible.”

“Attempts to roll back Open Skies will only hurt communities like Charleston and employees like those at Boeing and its suppliers across the US and world. Flyers will also have fewer choices and less convenience,” he added.
