Airlines and Subsidy: Our Position

Airlines and Subsidy: Our Position

A report on subsidy from Emirates

Our positionAs a major stakeholder in international aviation, Emirates welcomes a robust, fact-based debate on the issue of subsidy.

Our longstanding position is that Emirates is opposed to state aid and we, in fact, campaign against airline subsidies. However, we understand that despite no evidence, an often repeated myth can ultimately be accepted as conventional wisdom.

In the link below you will find a new report with our views on subsidy in the airline industry, explanations about Emirates’ business model and our response to misrepresentations that have been levelled against us – from claims about subsidised fuel, financial support and staff conditions to environmental regulation and airport charges.
