Qatar Airways presses for more open Canadian market

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker urged the Canadian Government to grant the carrier more access to the Canadian market (Reuters, 01-Nov-2010).

Qatar Airways: "We have Canadian companies trying to sell us equipment. But trade is a two-way street. We will give them trade, in return we want to access their markets. They just want to throw peanuts at us. But the genie is out of the bottle. They will not be able to restrain our capacity," Akbar Al Baker, CEO. Source: Reuters, 01-Nov-2010.
