Skyteam Air Alliance (Skyteam) has offered the European Commission (Commission) a series of commitments designed to address concerns that the co-operation between this group of airlines may breach Article 81 EC. The Commission has identified routes where Skyteam’s members hold a strong market position, thus potentially limiting competitive options for passengers. In response to the Commission’s concerns, Skyteam has pledged, amongst other things, to increase slot availability for competitors for new or additional services and allow new entrants to join their frequent flyer programme. A trustee will be appointed to monitor Skyteam’s adherence to these commitments. The Commission has invited interested third parties to submit their comments on these commitments.
