Emirates Airline President, Sir Tim Clark, hit back at allegations that his airline has breached a trade agreement with the United States.

He also emphasized that they have nothing to hide.

“We have provided our financials. We treat ourselves like a publicly listed company. We’re not, we’re a private company,” Clark was quoted as saying.

“The government of Dubai, which owns Emirates, doesn’t have to publish anything. But we publish everything to the sixth decimal place and we're audited.”

outh Korea and Japan will be having their annual aviation talks this week on the South Korean island of Jeju.

According to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, South Korea is set to discuss adjustments in flight course and safety distance between planes. This is the 12th time that these aviation talks have been held between the two countries. They began having this annual gathering back in 2005.

South Korea is requesting Japan to alter flight routes to shorten the flying distance between Incheon – its main gateway – and several Japanese cities. Many of the flights currently have to take detour routes once they enter Japanese airspace.

Seoul is also looking to shorten the separation minima – the distance required between aircrafts to prevent collisions – from the present 37 kilometers to 28 km, which would help boost services, said Ministry officials.

The two sides will deliberate signing agreements for cooperation between South Korea’s air traffic management center and area control center with their Japanese counterparts.

A new government bill that is purportedly geared to support air passengers’ rights, is being called out by a consumer rights advocate as nothing more than “smoke and mirrors.”

Canada’s Transportation Minister Marc Garneau recently introduced a passenger bill of rights as part of a package of changes to the Canada Transportation Act. Bill C-49 asks the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) to establish well-defined standards for how passengers can be treated, including situations where they are denied boarding, their baggage is lost or they’re delayed on the tarmac.

However, passenger rights advocate Gabor Lukacs is not convinced.

“This bill is smoke, mirrors and no teeth”, he said.

Mohammad Lengawi, Deputy Director General of DCAA and Executive Director of Aviation Security and Accident Investigation, said that the plan contains best practices for decreasing congestion and targets for the coming years.

“We are working with our regulator, the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), to come up with solutions and best practices where we can minimize the air traffic congestion. We will publish [our findings] very soon,” Lengawi said.

Open Skies Policy key to unlocking economic growth in East African region

Nearly 50,000 jobs and over $200 million could be added to the region’s growth domestic product (GDP) per annum if East African Community (EAC) member countries adopt the open sky policy, says a study.

The study by the East African Business Council (EABC) approximates that liberalization of the airspace between the six EAC countries could result in an additional 46,320 jobs and $202.1 million per annum in GDP.

Evidence suggests that that complete liberalization of limited routes will lead to about 9% lower average fares and a 41% increase in frequencies, which in turn will boost passenger demand across Africa.

“This study demonstrates that increased air service and traffic resulted in positive benefits for the total EAC economy,” said Lilian Awinja, the EABC Chief Executive Officer.

Canada’s new federal guidelines geared to help air passengers, set to be tabled.

The new rules also mandate carriers to not charge parents extra to seat them next to their child. Carriers would also have to offer clear and transparent rules that outline the conditions that would entitle passengers to just compensation.

“We need simpler and clearer rules in this country,” Ian Jack, a spokesperson for CAA National said. CAA is one of the country’s top travel agencies, and one of the groups advocating for more passenger-friendly rules.
