India: Competition Commission probes Hyderabad airport operator

 |  October 23, 2019

Competition Commission of India has ordered a detailed probe against Hyderabad international airport operator GMR Hyderabad International Airport for alleged abuse of dominant position and denial of market access to a leading MRO services provider.

The order against GMR Hyderabad International Airport has come on a complaint filed with the watchdog by Air Works India.

Air Works provides maintenance, repair and overhaul services of aircraft to airlines and general aviation.

“… the facts of the present case prima facie suggest denial of market access to the informant coupled with exclusionary motive by GMR to favour its own group entity. Owing to its dominance in the upstream market and its presence in the downstream market, GMR seems to have distorted the level playing field,” the regulator wrote in a 21-page order.
