EU regulators raid two airlines

Antitrust regulators inspect Brussels Airlines, TAP Portugal

The offices of Brussels Airlines and TAP Portugal have been raided by the European Union’s antitrust regulators. The regulators suspect the airlines of breaking EU rules in a codeshare agreement between them. “The Commission has concerns that the agreements may go further than the sale of seats on routes where the two companies are expected to compete,” the European Commission said in a statement.
The agreements between the two carriers are already a departure from the most common process of airline codesharing, the Commission said.
