Partnership for Open & Fair Skies
We need your help to respond to a major problem – Emirates’ is expanding its routes in the U.S. yet again!
Beginning this Sunday, Emirates Airline will leverage its massive and unfair government subsidies to fly a new route from Newark, New Jersey, to Athens. We need to rally together to call on President Trump to enforce our Open Skies agreements and stop these flights. We need #FairFlights. Click to Tweet.
Every time a Gulf carrier pushes a US carrier off a route like this, we lose 1,500 American jobs. If enough of these flights are allowed, to take off, we risk losing routes like we’ve seen in Europe. Emirates is only willing to operate from Newark to Athens otherwise unprofitable route year round because of the billions it receives from the United Arab Emirates. These subsidies force U.S. airlines and their workers to compete on an unfair playing field and put American jobs at risk.
Will you join us to rally for #FairFlights this Sunday?
If you’re in the New Jersey and New York area, join flight attendants, pilots, and elected officials at the United Rally to protest Newark-Athens when the first flight arrives from Athens. Join the rally:
United Rally for Open Skies
Newark International Airport
Terminal C at the United Airlines Ticketing Lobby, Level 3 near Door #3
Sunday, March 12
