Australian regulator squashes NZ/Canada air pact
Australian regulator squashes Air NZ, Air Canada accord
Nov. 20 – Australia’s antitrust regulator has vetoed an agreement between Air New Zealand and Air Canada to cooperate on some routes.
The accord would have the effect of harming competition on the Australia-Canada route, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said in a draft determination, according to Reuters.
The ACCC said the airlines are two of the four main carriers who fly the route.
