European carriers compete unfairly: GCAA

27 Mar 2011

(MENAFN) Director General of the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Saif Mohammed Al Suwaidi, said that Lufthansa, British Airways and Air France were unfairly trying to halt the growth and expansion of UAE carriers, reported Emirates 24/7.

Al Suwaidi said that these European airlines used unfair practices to weaken the alliances of Emeriti airlines with global ones as well as attempts for restricting movement in global air navigation.

In addition, Al Suwaidi accused Canadian airlines of cooperating with the mentioned European airlines.

It is worth noting that recently, the Emirates was denied more landing rights in the Austrian city, Vienna. Many experts believe that this was due to pressure by competing European airlines.
