The US commercial airline coalition released full-page advertisements this week in the New York Times and New York Post to complain about Qatar Airways.
Advertisements sent to President Donald Trump, Qatar Airways over the United States, drawing an aggressive route, in violation of a 2018 agreement, he said. Qatar Airline has recently acquired a 49% stake in the company.
Air Italy, Qatar Airways was a regional carrier that fought the company until it had given the company tens of millions of dollars to overcome the agreement and expand the US presence. Over the past few days, Qatar Airways has used his Italian counterpart to launch routes to Los Angeles and San Francisco and has added flights to Miami – another effort to undermine US airline companies.
The letter went on to say that private carriers of the United States cannot compete with a government-subsidized airline.
Since 2015, the largest US airlines – Delta Air Lines, the American Airlines Group and the United Airlines – have been unfairly subsidized by the governments of the Gulf rivals, and argued that disrupts competition.
“The work that does not follow any rules cannot compete with a largely subsidized airline that ignores economic facts and eradicates state cash infraction one after the other,” said Ad.
Washington pledged that US lawmakers would not add new domestic flights to US airlines in the US, according to which US deputies took 49 percent of Air Italy flying to the US since June.
Last week, Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo said at a Senate hearing: “We are very interested in the decision to take 49 percent of Qatar’s airline.”
Republicans and Democrats in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said the agreement with the Italian airline company was concerned that Qatar Airways had violated an agreement with the United States in early 2018.
Pompeo, “There are numerous consultations.” Said. The Foreign Ministry said earlier this year that US and Qatari officials had come together to discuss civil aviation issues in January.
In a letter to Pompeo and Transport Secretary Elaine Chao on Wednesday, JetBlue Airways and cargo companies said retaliation against US carriers for FedEx and limiting the rights of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Qatar Airways, and Air Italy could result.
