“Henri Coanda” International Airport, under Competition Council investigation

The Competition Council initiated an investigation regarding a possible anticompetitive agreement between National Company “Bucharest Airports”, Dnata Catering and Millenium Pro Design, a press release informs on Monday.

“The competition authority suspects that the three companies have restricted the competition on the commercial services within the “Henri Coanda” International Airport by concluding several joint venture agreements on long-term and containing clauses that can have anti-competitive effect,” the release reads.

During the investigation, an unannounced inspection was carried out and the documents seized are analyzed by the Romanian competition authority, under specific investigation procedures.

The unannounced inspections represent an early stage in the investigation proceedings of a possible anti-competitive behavior.

”Making these inspections is not an ante pronouncement of the Competition Council regarding the guilt of the investigated companies nor regarding the final result of the initiated investigation,” the quoted document also shows.

At end-May, dnata Catering, part of Emirates Group, opened two ‘Left Bank’ restaurants within Henri Coanda International Airport (Otopeni), one in the boarding area and one in the departures terminal, in the presence of dnata President Gary Chapman.
