Bulgaria: Sofia Airport scolded for below-market maintenance pricing

 |  July 23, 2013

Competition officials announced findings of an investigation into Sofia Airport and have accused the entity of unfair business practices by pricing aircraft servicing at below-cost prices, say reports. Bulgaria’s Commission for Protection of Competition announced the findings Tuesday; regulators found the airport to have been charging below-market pricing for the services since early-2011. The pricing practices caused the airport to sacrifice any profit and, in some cases, even lose money.

A fine has not been issued to the airport as of Tuesday.
