The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has imposed a fine of Rs 39.81 crore on Jet Airways for unfair business practices with respect to fixing fuel surcharge on cargo transport. The watchdog has also directed Jet Airways to cease and desist from anti-competitive practices. The order has come on a complaint filed by Express Industry Council of India against the airlines alleging cartelisation.
Jet Airways is India’s premier international airline, which operates flights to India and overseas. The company’s robust domestic India network spans the length and breadth of the country covering metro cities, state capitals and emerging destinations.
