Emirates fined $10m by Australian regulator

Emirates Airline has agreed to pay a fine of $10.3m to settle a case brought by Australian regulators who accused it of fixing surcharges for fuel and other prices, AFP has reported. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission started proceedings against the carrier in 2009, alleging it was part of a cartel that operated in the air freight market. Emirates conceded that it reached illegal understandings with other airlines relating to surcharges and a customs fee on air freight from Indonesia to Australia and elsewhere between October 2001 and May 2006.
