Final approval for corporate air alliance
By admin


The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has granted final approval to the expanded corporate alliance between Virgin Australia and Skywest Airlines for five years.
The alliance will allow the airlines to bundle charter, domestic and international air services for corporate customers with large fly-in-fly-out workforces.
“The ACCC considers that the corporate alliance will promote competition by enabling Virgin Australia and Skywest to offer a more extensive integrated air service package to corporate customers in competition with Qantas and its affiliates,” chairman Rod Sims said.
The two carriers are already working together on joint corporate tenders and charter opportunities, following the ACCC’s grant of interim approval in January.
