EC airfreight cartel fine challenge upheld

The General Court of the European Union has backed a challenge by 11 airlines against an €800m European Commission freight cartel fine. The court found “internal inconsistencies” in the Commission’s 2010 decision and said that the European Commission had not been clear enough in demonstrating an unambiguous “single and continuous infringement” by the carriers.

Airlines fined include: Air France, KLM, Air Canada, Martinair, British Airways, Cargolux, Cathay Pacific Airways, Japan Airlines, LAN Chile, Qantas, SAS and Singapore Airlines.
Lufthansa escaped a sanction after providing information to the Commission.
