Adria Airways denies price fixing

Adria Airways denied the claims made by the Slovenian Consumer Association that the airline abused its position on the market on the line Ljubljana – Brussels. On Monday, the Association invited the Competition Protection Office to investigate potential abuse of the dominant position of the airline because the tickets on the mentioned line were cheaper before the Slovenian presidency but heavily increased in the few months after the presidency was complete. Adria Airways claims that they have a business agreement on a joint sale of tickets with Brussles Airlines. The price of the ticket depends on the duration of the flight, available capacities, flight occupancy, and the time of the purchase. Lower prices before and during the presidency were the result of increased demand, adds the airline.
