Tell the Obama Administration to defend US airlines and airline jobs by denying NAI’s dangerous application to fly into the US.
A decision to oppose Norwegian Air Shuttle’s application to fly in and out of the U.S. should be a no brainer for the White House. U.S. jobs and the future of the U.S. aviation industry are at stake. U.S. pilots, and the millions of American air travelers whose lives are in their hands, are watching this closely and are expecting a decision that chooses U.S. carriers and pilots over sketchy foreign competitors.

Norwegian Air International is applying to fly into the U.S. using an anti-competitive business model. They are hoping to compete with America’s air carriers on our turf while evading fair regulation and labor accountability.
There’s nothing wrong with healthy competition – but there’s nothing healthy about the tactics Norwegian Air International plans to use to undercut US companies. If their application goes through there will be nothing healthy about the loss of US jobs that will follow.
Business practices like NAI’s are harmful to American jobs in the best of times. When our economy is struggling to recover after years of recession, they could be devastating. Protect tens of thousands of hardworking Americans by denying NAI’s application for a Foreign Air Carrier permit.
