Aer Lingus Welcomes UK Competition Appeal Tribunal Decision

Aer Lingus has welcomed yesterday’s decision by the UK Competition Appeals Tribunal rejecting Ryanair’s appeal against the Competition Commission’s decision to continue its investigation into Ryanair’s minority shareholding in Aer Lingus under the UK’s merger control legislation following Ryanair’s offer for Aer Lingus as announced on 19th June 2012.

The airline said: “We note yet another of Ryanair’s attempts to stop both this investigation and the previous Office of Fair Trading investigation has been rejected. Aer Lingus looks forward to assisting the Competition Commission in its ongoing investigation into the anti-competitive effects of Ryanair’s minority shareholding.”
