The General Rapporteur of the Autorité de la concurrence indicates that unannounced inspections have been carried out in the inter-island air passenger traffic sector in the Indian Ocean area.

Following authorisation from the liberty and custody judge, the investigation services of the Autorité de la concurrence have raided today the premises of companies in La Réunion suspected of having engaged in possible anticompetitive practices in the inter-island air passenger traffic sector.

Such interventions do not, of course, pre-suppose the existence of a breach of the law which could be imputed to the companies involved in the alleged practices, which only a full investigation into the merits of the case could establish, if appropriate.


The Autorité will not comment on the identity of the companies nor on the practices implemented.
