Senators raise concerns re Qatar Airways/Air Italy ties

Postby Greg on Fri Dec 07, 2018 8:41 am

Eleven US Senators have raised concerns with the Trump administration about Qatar Airways and the nature of its relationship with Air Italy.

In the letter, the senators collectively accused Qatar Airways of using Air Italy, in which it has a 49% stake, to dump capacity in the Italy-US market. In particular, they singled out comments made by the Qatari carrier's chief executive, Akbar al Baker, in which he pledged to ramp up Air Italy's fleet with B777s and A350s in addition to the previously announced B737-8s and B787s.
