Chris Grayling

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions if he will make a statement on progress towards an Open Skies agreement with the US. [49873]

Mr. Jamieson

The Government would like to liberalise the UK-US aviation market in a way that would allow UK airlines to be able to compete with US airlines on fair terms. We are reviewing the policy options for achieving that objective.
