Norwegian Competition Authority to appeal ruling on SAS.


The Norwegian Competition Authority has said that it will appeal a court ruling that clears Scandinavian airline SAS of violating antitrust laws.

In July the Oslo City Court rejected a demand from the competition authority that SAS pay NOK20m in fines. The demand was based on a claim that the airline breached antitrust laws by dumping prices and marginalising the smaller commuter airline Coast Air, The Associated Press reported. The alleged breach was said to have been made on a national route linking Oslo and Haugesund.

According to the court ruling, SAS showed that its actions had not violated any laws. The appeal has to be filed by 28 August.
