New regulatory boundaries for airline alliances

01 December 1997

Airline alliances are high on the competition agenda. Michael Reynolds, chairman of the IBA’s Antitrust and Trade Committee, and Richard J Fahy Jr, chairman of the Aeronautical Law Committee, convened a joint session at the 1997 IBA conference in New Delhi and invited representatives of airlines, the EU Commission and the US Department of Justice to debate the application of competition rules to the airline sector. Callum Campbell was there.
