NZCC withdraws claims against Air New Zealand Cargo employees after investigation.


Air New Zealand said on Wednesday that it welcomes a decision by the New Zealand Commerce Commission (NZCC) to discontinue proceedings against individual employees of its Cargo business.

The airline has recently successfully defended its position and practices at the European Commission, following a five-year investigation into the cargo activities of 22 airlines which resulted in fines against 11 of them, but no finding of any wrongdoing against Air New Zealand.

Last year the carrier was cleared after a similar investigation by the Korean Fair Trade Commission.

Currently only the ACCC in Australia and the NZCC continue with any allegations, which Air New Zealand says it is strongly defending.
