Malaysia: MyCC ruling challenged by airlines

 |  October 22, 2013

Malaysia’s competition regulator MyCC is now facing challenges to its recent ruling that imposed fines of two of the nation’s airlines for illegal collusive behavior, say reports.

The regulator fined Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia after MyCC found the two to have made a collaboration agreement; the fines amounted to $3.2 million.

Both companies have reportedly issued official protests of the fines, which were issued last September.
