Aviation legislation prevents competition in Copenhagen Airport

25. januar 2012

Københavns Lufthavne A/S (CPH) limits competition when it refuses a new, competing terminal operator – Airport Terminal A ApS (TA) - access to Copenhagen airport.

The Danish Competition Council can not intervene because the Danish Traffic Authority has determined that aviation legislation prevents the establishment of a passenger terminal owned and operated by third party.

The Danish Competition Council requests that the Minister of Transportation consider a change of the aviation legislation that will enable competition in this area.

The Danish Competition and Consumer Authority have analyzed the possible effects of terminal competition. The analysis shows that terminal competition will benefit both carriers and passengers who will have a larger range of choices and cheaper prices.

The Minister of Transportation must answer the request within four months of the date of the request.
