UAE and US deal signed

It's been revealed by our aviation sources that The United States and the United Arab Emirates have signed a deal today that aims to resolve US claims that Gulf carriers had over the years received unfair government subsidies.

It appears that the voluntary agreement that will apply to Etihad and Emirates airlines, will be announced next week. Our sources indicate that the deal is a very similar one that that agreed between Qatar and the US back in January

That deal ensures that detailed financial information and accounts from Qatar Airways, a state-owned airline is shared with the US.  More details will follow
