Qatar is expected to agree Tuesday to release detailed financial information about its state-owned Qatar Airways, U.S. State Department officials said late on Sunday, a move that follows pressure from U.S. airlines for it to disclose any potential subsidies it has received.Under an understanding to be announced Tuesday, Qatar Airways will issue audited financial reports within a year and within two years must disclose significant new transactions with state-owned enterprises, U.S. officials said.The Gulf airlines operate around 200 flights per week to 12 U.S. cities.Qatar's Civil Aviation authority told the U.S. government that Qatar Airways has no current plans to offer so-called "fifth freedom flights" that allow an airline to fly between foreign countries as a part of services to and from its home country.
