LONDON – The US Department of Transportation (DOT) has tentatively signed off on Aer Lingus (EI) joining the OpenSkies joint venture on transatlantic offerings, which will fuse the likes of American Airlines (AA), British Airways (BA), Finnair (AY) and Iberia (IB).
All that EI has to wait on now is for the other airlines in the venture to agree on its approval, which could be seen by the end of the year. It is understood to be the second antitrust approval made by the DOT this year after it signed off on Delta’s (DL) agreements with WestJet (WS).
