Urgent Action Needed by New Jersey and New York Residents – Call Your U.S. Representative Today! Feb 28, 2017On March 12, Emirates Airlines will launch their new daily flight from Athens to Newark.  This route is permissible under the U.S./Gulf States Open Skies agreements.  However, Emirates is only able to enter this obscure market due to enormous subsidies received from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government, in violation of this same agreement.
