How to Open Global Capital Markets to U.S. Airlines

In this article (Paragraph No 10,471) it is shown that it is time for the United States to liberalize restrictions on international investment in the airline industry. This would not only open the world’s capital markets in the U.S. industry, but would also increase opportunities for the U.S. interests and investors to become more involved in the global airline industry. It is time to treat airlines like other businesses. It is not enough, however, to increase the limit on foreign investments. Until the control issue is addressed, no limit will be high enough, and the U.S. industry will remain shut out from the world’s capital markets; the control issue cannot really be resolved until labor and security issues are addressed. In sum, it is time to act on these issues, especially if airlines want to improve their financial performance, maintain service, and protect jobs.
