South African authorities continue to investigate Emirates complaints

SA-EmiratesSouth African authorities have reported substantial progress in the investigation into complaints against Emirates.

The Competition Commission of South Africa launched an investigation in April 2105, after accusations that the carrier had been bribing travel agents to steer ticket away from rival airlines.

« We take compliance with competition law very seriously wherever we operate, and we are co-operating fully with the Commission’s enquiry,” said representatives from Emirates.

In November 2014, the government withdrew a fourth Dubai-Johannesburg frequency from Emirates, as it had been « unduly granted » by an official « with no authority to do so ». (africanaerospace)
