My message today was therefore very clear: we will need more transatlantic cooperation. We need a united EU-US front to decarbonise aviation and allow our respective companies to grow sustainably and tap into new emerging markets. Such united front shall however not be put at risk by the failure of the US authorities to take a decision on Norwegian Air International."
