Brussels Airlines and TAP offices raided by EU anti-trust officials

EU antitrust regulators raided Brussels Airlines and TAP Portugal offices in connection with an investigation that the carriers may have colluded illegally to sell seats on competing routes.
“The Commission has concerns that the agreements may go further than the sale of seats on routes where the two companies are expected to compete,” it said in a statement.
“While the Commission was so far rather concerned about possible effects that code-share agreements may have had for consumers, it now has, in addition, reasons to suspect illegal collusion between the parties,” it added.
TAP chief executive Fernando Pinto has denied any collusion. “We are helping the investigation and the process is transparent”.
