New Zealand Commerce Commission taking action on international air cargo

On 15 December 2008 the New Zealand Commerce Commission issued a media release on legal action it is taking against 13 airlines:
  • Air New Zealand Limited
  • British Airways plc
  • Cargolux International Airlines S.A
  • Cathay Pacific Airways Limited
  • Emirates
  • PT Garuda Indonesia
  • Japan Airlines International Co Limited
  • Korean Airlines Co Limited
  • Malaysian Airline System Berhad Limited
  • Qantas Airways Limited
  • Singapore Airlines Cargo Pte Limited and Singapore Airlines Limited
  • Thai Airways International Public Company Limited
  • United Airlines Incorporated
relating to pricing practices and international air cargo.

This follows similar action by competition authorities in other jurisdictions.

Air New Zealand almost immediately issued a media release in response to the announcement.
