Travel Leaders Ecstatic Over Norwegian Air Decision
U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement on the Obama administration's long-awaited decision to allow flights by low-cost carrier Norwegian Air International into U.S. cities:
"The American travel community is ecstatic at the decision by the Obama administration to allow new service to U.S. cities by Norwegian Air International. If ever there were a trade policy that brings jobs to U.S. soil, this is it: NAI is flying and will buy more America-made planes, their passengers will spend money in American businesses, and American travelers will have more and cheaper options when they fly. This announcement is an unmistakable endorsement of competition, connectivity and Open Skies agreements, and a welcome repudiation of protectionist, anti-competitive policymaking.
