NEW DELHI - Emirates airline is hopeful that the governments of India and the United Arab Emirates would sort out the situation with regard to bilateral flying rights between the two countries, the company's president Tim Clark said on Tuesday.

There would still be a need for Gulf carriers in India, given how strong demand is, Clark told reporters at a round table during the ongoing CAPA India conference.
