Lufthansa is probed over pricing program

3 May 2011

Germany’s competition authority is investigating whether air carrier Lufthansa forced its corporate customers to provide information about competitors’ prices in order to receive discounts.

Germany’s competition watchdog, the ‘Bundeskartellamt’, is looking into whether contracts between Lufthansa and its corporate customers required that they provide the airline with sensitive information about competitors’ pricing structures, thereby possibly distorting competition.

Authorities say contracts between Europe’s largest air carrier and some large corporate customers stipulated that the firms would not receive discounts unless data on price and discounts from other airlines were provided.
