Australian price fixing charge denied by Emirates
As per the media reports, Gulf-based airline Emirates is determined to fight the allegations leveled against it by Australia's regulator, which say that the airline fixed air cargo prices.
In an emailed document, the Dubai-based carrier said: “Emirates denies the allegations and will be defending the proceedings. It does not intend to make any further comment given that the matter is before the court.”
It has been claimed by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) that Emirates made agreements or understandings with rival freight carriers, with the aim of fixing cargo rates and fuel and security surcharges between 2002 and 2006. It will be on 11th September that a Sydney court will hear the case against Emirates.
Emirates happens to be the ninth airline to have been charged with fixing fuel surcharge prices by ACCC.
