Senator David Perdue Applauds Trump Administration’s Action On Open Skies

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) applauds the Trump Administration for taking action on the Open Skies agreement with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and ensuring a level playing field in the global aviation sector:

“Our aviation sector is critical to American jobs and the economy. President Trump’s actions will help level the playing field, promote transparency, and allow for fair competition in the aviation industry. This is vital to the global success of domestic airlines and yet another way President Trump is standing up for American workers and businesses.”

Last year, Senator Perdue published an op-ed in The Hill on the need for open and fair competition in the international aviation industry.
