Ecuador offers subsidized fuel for flights
By The Associated Press | Published: August 19, 2012
QUITO, Ecuador — Ecuador's president is offering a temptation for airlines that schedule routes to his country: cheap fuel.
Rafael Correa says the government will offer a 40 percent reduction in fuel prices for direct routes to and from cities such as Los Angeles, Vancouver, Frankfurt or Rome.
He said in a regular weekly broadcast Saturday the benefit would last for five years and airlines would have to promise to fly at least three times a week, but did not go into details.
Correa says the aim is to improve connections, productivity, tourism and education in the country.
