EU to tackle airline competition with new rules | Reuters

EU to tackle airline competition with new rules | Reuters:

"The European Union proposed new rules on Thursday to tackle alleged unfair competitive practices from foreign airlines as it seeks to ensure European carriers can fend off fierce competition from abroad. The move comes after repeated complaints from some European airlines, notably Air France KLM (AIRF.PA) and Lufthansa (LHAG.DE), about Gulf carriers receiving illegal government subsidies, charges Emirates, Qatar Airways and Etihad all deny. The proposal, which needs to be approved by the European Parliament and EU member states before becoming law, would allow governments and airlines to submit complaints about discriminatory practices to the European Commission."
