Korea negotiates new air services arrangements with the UAE

On 10 May 2009 the United Arab Emirates announced new air services arrangements with the Republic of Korea that will provide the opportunity for Etihad to commence operations between Abu Dhabi and Incheon.

On 8 May 2009 the Korea Times had reported the reaction of the Korean airline industry, including this interesting quote:

"'The government is supposed to speak up for its national flag carriers and stand on their side, but the outcome of the talks demonstrates that none of that happened,' said Lim Jae-won, a Korean Air spokesman."
