Virgin Australia opposes Emirates-Qantas tie-up

Virginia Australia has expressed opposition to the agreement between Emirates Airline and Australia's Qantas and asked the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to withhold the grant of an interim authorisation until the two airlines could prove their tie-up would benefit Australian consumer. The interim authorisation would result in a level of cooperation between Qantas and Emirates which is anti-competitive, said Australia's second-largest carrier. Qantas agreed to a tie-up with Emirates in a bid to improve its losing international operations, and warned that if ACCC would reject the deal, it would further cut its European operation which is already a losing proposition.
