US Carriers Oppose Exim Loan To Air India

Mon Nov 14, 2011 7:15 am

The 17 airline member Air Transport Association has come out against the US Export-Import Bank’s $3.4Bil loan guarantees for Boeing aircraft purchases by Air India.

The ATA claims that Exim incorrectly approved the loan guarantees against established policy that should have disqualified Air India due to its large financial losses and ongoing problems noted in a US audit.

Exim = US government money

AA = is leasing planes. Manufacturers are financing the aircraft themselves.
