TIM CLARK SPEAKS OUT AS EMIRATES IS TARGETED BY CANADIAN GOVERNMENT IN HOUSE OF COMMONS

Tim Clark, CEO of Emirates, has hit back at Canada after Government House leader John Baird stated Friday in the House of Commons that granting additional landing rights to the Emirates and Etihad would create job losses in the thousands for Canada’s airline industry.

“Emirates does not seek to swamp Canada with large amounts of capacity,” said company president Tim Clark in a statement.

“Emirates has listened to the concerns of Air Canada with regard to market access and we can assure the Canadian government that the increased presence of Emirates in Canada will only deliver favourable benefits to the Canadian economy and in particular to the traveling public. With regards to the potential for ‘tens of thousands of jobs’ losses, Emirates has difficulty in understanding this assertion,” he said.
